I know, I know friends...this post is VERY late. Blogging about Christmas in JANUARY?? Seriously?
I took a much needed vacay. I celebrated my 37th birthday on the beach.
Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic.
It. Was. Phenomenal.
And VERY much needed.
But, back to the real world....
Since I gave out the other DIY gifts that I made for my friends AFTER New Years, I had to post on those gifts quite late.
For 2 of my besties, I gave some of my children's blocks that I had repurposed.
I received these blocks for free from a daycare that was getting rid of them.
Omigoodness, my boys are SO small here!!
Maybe I shouldn't advertise that I got them for free, since my girlies may read this... ;)
Anyhoo, similar to the picture that I made for my sister with the words of her 3 favourite things,
I did the same for them.
Here was my process:
|painting the wood|
|adding the wording|
Hopefully, they loved them.
I also gave them some Christmas wall decor that was handmade that I purchased. I fell in love with the detailing, and maybe I will take on something like them for next year??
Maybe if I start now.... ;)
Here are my purchased handmade items:
I love that you could use repurposed wood pieces and scrap pieces of fabric to make these.Add some twigs and some paint, and voila! Beautiful handmade wall decor.
Although I'm late, I really do hope that you all had a very blessed holiday season and are looking forward to this new year with as much enthusiasm and optimism as I am.
