Thank you so very much to everyone who attended my Christmas Open House this past weekend. Many of you know I have been working toward this event for a while, creating some handmade goodies for you to give as gifts or keep for yourself. And this weekend was the big reveal. Since I never posted a preview last week as promised, this will be a sneak peak for Christmas in Kaneville, December 4th. So much to see so grab a cup of something warm and take a few minutes to see what I’ve been working on.
Greeting cards, where the whole handmade adventure began for me.
A few autumn and harvest inspired things. The playing card garlands have found happy homes.
Some whimsical, girly things. Oooh, kind of blurry.
Lovely French inspired greetings.
Vintage sheet music and china.
A pear tree. No partridge.
Hairpins and bracelets. Vintage button rings too.
Repurposed children’s blocks.
Pretty things and glittery things.
Journals, flower pens, art collages, gift tins.
And many one-of-a-kind art pieces.
As you can see I love to make things. And chances are good that if you receive a gift from me it will be handmade. My hope is that you, dear reader, will give something handmade this holiday season, perhaps you’ve made, or even something I’ve made. And though you will likely have to purchase supplies for whatever it is you make, you will know that the end result is a gift that is original, one-of-a-kind and heartfelt.
