Handmade Holiday & a Giveaway

The Holidays are upon us and it is not too late to have a Handmade Holiday!
Each Friday for the next 4 weeks I will be sharing links to 10 Handmade Gift Tutorials that you can pull off in a short period of time!  There will be a little for everybody, kids, neighbors, teachers.
Plus, there will be a little giveaway at the end of each post to reward YOU for taking the initiative of crafting your way through the Holidays!



Here's to a Handmade Holiday!

Today's post is brought to you by: 
A few words from Amy, owner of Smitten Image:
I am constantly changing the look of my son Jack's room.  Instead of spending tons of money on expensive art, I took my love of graphic design and created my own prints to decorate the walls.  I decided then to share my work with others, and Smitten Image was born!

I am a Special Education teacher, a blogger and a hobby photographer.  I love spending time with my family and I love hearing how my prints added that special touch to other people's nurseries, bedrooms or playrooms!  I welcome custom orders and would love to work with you! 



If you have a girlie girl like me, then this adorable DIY Canopy Doll Bed from Attempting Aloha is a must!  And at under $14, it is affordable too.  Just a little time and effort and you'll have a gift your daughter will treasure for years.
 
Since we are on a baby doll theme, creating an easy Doll Carrier (from yours truly) will allow your little one to easily carry around their baby while keeping their hands free!

 Pajama pants make a great gift, especially when they are personalized to the child - from the fabrics to the name down the leg! The Life of a Cheap Chickadee shares a tutorial for these fabulously comfy bottoms.

This Messenger Bag from Crazy Little Projects would be perfect for a busy mom on the go, or as a church tote, or for a trendy Grandma.  Really, this fun little tote is perfect for just about anyone!

These Homemade Hand Warmers from The Scrap Shoppe is an adorable AND functional package all wrapped up in one. Perfect for neighbors, teachers, or as a filler to a gift basket.

 Another sweet and personalized gift is these Glass Tile Pendants from Sugar Bee Crafts.
I can see these as a great group gift - one for each sister or friend!

 
Again, personalize however you wish and add a little treat and you have a perfectly heartfelt gift.

Pair this Levi Apron from A Girl and a Glue Gun with the bowls from above and you are on your way to the perfect kitchen or baking themed gift basket!

 Do you know someone who could use a little pampering?
Then make some of this Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub from Mom Endeavors.

 
This Pinecone Firestarter Gift Basket from Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom was made for pennies and is a really useful gift for anyone with a fireplace!
