Handmade Holiday and a Giveaway

Welcome to the final week of Handmade Holiday!  The winner of last week’s giveaway from My Repurposed Life is:

 On to the handmade goodness:
My Memere made me a doll sleeping bag when I was a young child and I LOVED that thing.  I brought it with me on sleepovers and camping. In fact, I still have it!  I passed it down to my daughters and they love it almost as much as I did.  Follow this sleeping bag tutorial from The Polka Dot Chair and give a last gift this year!
If you are looking for a quick and inexpensive neighbors gift, then head over to Lil’ Luna and check out her Cookie Gift Idea.  A simple food gift packaged in a fun and unique way is always a good way to go.
Pair this Soda Gift Idea from I Heart Naptime with the one above and you’re neighbors will be over mowing your lawn this summer, I swear!
What boy {or girl} wouldn’t love to receive their very own fort kit?  EVERYTHING they need to make an amazing fortress to play pirates, or army, or whatever their imaginations can think up.
Tutorial and free printables available at Saltwater Kids.
I love the bottle and the whole presentation that Kim from Today’s Creative Blog put together for this adult only gift!  And she was nice enough to share her recipe so stop by and check it out.
It can be tailored to the receiver – options are endless!
Want to impress a sister or close friend this Christmas?  Knit them a pair of uber stylish cable knit fingerless gloves with the free pattern from Blue Sky Alpacas.  I would love, love, love a pair of these to keep my fingers warm while typing away in my frigid office!
Create an accessories gift basket with the above gloves and these adorable  house slippers from Martha Stewart
I love themed gift baskets.  I have created a ton in my time, but I have yet to create a Gardner’s Gift Basket. I realize the snow may be flying, but there is no reason you can’t help the gardener in your life get ready for spring with a great basket filled with all the essentials!  Find out what Darling Doodles included in hers.

If your Princess has an AG Doll, you know how pricey the accessories and furniture can get.
There are plenty of tutorials out there sharing how to make your own items, including dresses (see below), beds and more!  Get started saving money by DIYing this Picnic Table Set from Ana White!

Now that you have a Picnic Table, your daughters AG Doll needs a summer dress so she can eat cookies and drink milk in comfort!  A Steadfast Life has a sweet little pattern for you to use.


Today’s giveaway is brought to you, by me!
I am offering up a printed copy of my Weekly Meal Planner!
Full color, 52 pages, spiral bound and mailed directly to your door – $20 value.
