If I am buying YOU a present, do not follow the links (if you do, you are baaaaad and I will keep your present!).
For the rest of you, I wanted to share some of the good luck I have had with the 'buy handmade' pledge. I have ended up with handmade gifts both bought and made, edibles & drinkables, and art supplies.
this, that I painted;
and two secret things - I've finished one and one is still in progress;
I made Z a sketchbook that she might kindly photograph for us if she reads this!
these to send (although it will be next year now);
this (for me!) with my Christmas money from my in-laws as well as the Golden fluid acrylics I was raving about before;
