a handmade Christmas


felt_clips.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

so i'm trying to hand-make as many gifts as i can this year BUT the whole recent life-changing event really, well, screwed with my plans. so now i'm just trying to include small handmade gifts with every store-bought gift. it's charming and a lot less time-consuming.

these cuties hair clips are going to my neices along with their warm fuzzy old navy gifts. they were super easy to make, just a little hand sewing with embroidery floss and felt. the clips i bought at joannes and the felt flowers i found in packs on etsy. they take maybe 10-15 minutes a piece and you can easily make them while watching tv. so if anyone has questions about them, let me know.

also, as if you needed more hints: pick one, brooklyn or manhattan?

I'm more partial towards Brooklyn. Love the walk ups there. Yum.
Manhattan=overrated and overpriced.

somewhere with a spare bedroom. preferrably with view better than a brick wall.

manhattan = higher rent, less space, husband commutes, central park
brooklyn = lower rent, more space, i commute, ammenities

brooklyn isn't a bad commute depending on where you are. and you guys definitely need more space... i hate to see you try to adjust to a tiny place after living large for so long... you both will hyperventilate!

the question is, where is the nearest target.
