The Day After

In our house, a lot of presents are homemade like these:

I guess you'd have to play Minecraft to know what this is. My boys made it for my hubby because he loves to go mining for gold, diamonds and obsidian and of course he has to avoid zombies, creepers and spiders along the way ;D

Here Jake is giving his Dad the gift and he's got a scarf wrapped around his neck that I made for him.
Lars got a huge kick out of this gift because he LOVES this game. So even though he's dressed as the Grinch, he wasn't a grump at all. He'll have this bunch of blocks sitting on his desk at work to make him smile throughout the day.

And here's a gift that Kathryn gave to Luke. If you want to check out more of her art, pop over here.

Here's one of the photos that inspired her painting.

There were a lot more homemade gifts: food, candy, cookies, scarves, blankets, pillows, artwork, poems and more but this gives you a "taste" of what we give and get at my house.

How 'bout you? Any fun homemade gifts you got or gave?

How sweet! I love home-made gifts.

My home-made gifts this year? Well, there was mostly fudge falling under the "made at home" category, but if I keep eating it there will also be the gift of TAILORING that I will be forced to pursue, as fudge never takes long to settle on my thighs!

Pearl: I LOVE fudge. I made some of that too. But I barely managed to give any away. A lot of that "homemade gift" is still stuck on my thighs ;D Thanks for popping by.

That is so awesome! I really want to make more handmade gifts next year. I always think that -- next year will be different!

Rena: I always think I'll make more gifts every year. It's hard to get them all done though :(

That Minecraft gift is awesome! My husband is totally into that game as well. I'm trying to do homemade gifts each year but this year had no time. . . so I went with handmade gifts that I bought.
