I've started crafting for Yule!

It's a tiny start, but a start non-the-less!

Painting those are really fun, and simple, and it takes no time, and give something extra personalized :) and it's going straight in her stocking.

Now they need a little felt house, don't they?

And. I had a pair of these, but one burnt at the top, leaving a whole. Not very practical.

So I've turned it inside out, traced my hand, sew half of it with my machine, broke a needle, and finished it by hand. Mariann saw it straight when she woke up from nap, and asked where the other was. Well, the other is mine!

Have you started making gifts yet?


  1. I just started Im trying to finish one small project then its all yule til actually yule, i wish i could sew because then the projects would be bigger and more outlandish but thats another project to tackle later.
    love the wooden dolls

  2. Those little wooden dolls remind me of my Mother! She use to make them out of clothespins when I was little. They had cute little painted faces and all their outfits were made out of felt. Thanks for reminding me of that memory! :O)
