Handmade Gifts + A Winner!

I love making handmade gifts! There is a satisfaction when giving the gift that  it's really from the heart since you took time and care to make something so special.  This year I made my sister scrapbook pages for my nephew's album and I made her family a little Christmas album for photos of this year. I also made my nephew a bunch of felt food. I got Simplicity pattern 2445 on sale for $1 at JoAnn's and went to town cutting, sewing and stuffing. There are a lot of free tutorials and patterns online, too. I found some of my favorites at Smashed Peas and Carrots and Craftiness is not Optional. Even if you're not into making felt food, they are really cute crafty blogs to follow anyway! The cinnamon rolls are my favorite- I had to make some for Quinn, too. And she is requesting chicken nuggets for Christmas, so I'm making some of those for her, too. Here's the bounty I made for my nephew...

Is anyone else making handmade Christmas gifts this year? We also made our Chrismas cards- I'll have to post a picture later because they turned out really cute!
And now, the winner of the Scrapbook Trends is Mandi! Send me your address and I'll get it in the mail to you!
Happy snowy Sunday, everyone! :)
