Last minute homemade gifts

I'm still making some Christmas gifts...simple, homemade things, like these calendars...you can make some, too, just ask your kids to help out, or just use cardstock and add a photo. Crocheted hot pads made with 100% wool yarn.

I'm also making ornaments, just cut images from a catalog and glued them to wood and tie a string or ribbon on top.
Make a set of magnets...put a few in a clean old tin...so cute.
You can even bake cookies and put them in a tin. Or homemade granola in a jar. My sister just gave us Curried Lentil Soup in a jar! So pretty...orange and green lentils. Tie around the lid with something lovely from Helen Dardik's blog, like these gift tags:
