It's In The Bag.. and I am dreaming of a New Year

Handmade Holidays:
It was fun.. It was crazy... It really should have started earlier.. Like, last April.
( The handmaking part, that is...)
But I had a great Christmas and I hope you all did too.

The most fun was the boy-craft. I mean, I loved the girly stuff:

The felted doggies, the "ruffle duffle", the sweety monster:






and my sister's Mini Pinny (casual modern pinafore to be worn with jeans- sorry, no pics, but soon in the shop.. pretty soon, anyhow. I mean, I need to catch my breath! phew!)

But the really wild stuff was for the boys.

Felt revolvers ala ReadyMade Mag for the big boys:




Pokemon storage and deck tote for a serious gamer who has to catch them ALL:




The sketchy sketch book for my manga obsessed future animator:




The Make Mag/Craft Mag inspired recycled plastic bag music and sketch book holding mini messenger bag (check out the grommet for the earphones for the new i-pod from Grandma):


It was all such a blur.. Kinda like my photos (oops, sorry.. it has been pretty cloudy lately) .. and now I am ready for that New Year feeling, fresh start and all that jazz.

Thanks to everyone who comes by to say howdy and to the people who bought crafty gifts from me and the people who sold crafty gifts to me and the people who sold them to my relatives so they could give them to me...

More soon.... I have missed you blogland... It is good to be back.

Welcome back! You've been missed! I thought maybe the full-body foundation garment snapped shut at the top and you were hopelessly stuck!

Glad that isn't the case.

So good to have you back! Wow, those revolvers are impressive! Why didn't I try to make one of those? Ah well, next year...

YAY for boy crafts - those revolvers! brilliant!

Though I am harboring a secret crush on that ruffle duffle.....

I second the relief that you are not trapped inside aforementioned foundation garment.... glad to see you back!

I, too, am in love with your felted doggies and the ruffle duffle!! Looking forward to your future posts! And Happy New Year's Eve to you!

Oh my gosh, these are all so amazing! The dogs, the guns, the ruffles! Actually, that'd be a great band name.

And I'm loving the concept of this Mini Pinny. Too cute from the sounds of it.

Wow- I love seeing cool crafts for boys! I must have missed the Ready Made with those amazing revolvers, which one was it in? I'd really like to make those.
Thanks,
