Although we were on a budget this holiday season, I wanted to do something special for my co-workers. We have all worked so hard this year and everyone deserves a little something to know that they are in my thoughts this holiday season.
I found where someone had made Christmas candy grams with the phrase “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” and jolly rancher candies — And I knew what my co-workers were getting!!
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, co-workers!!
A little washi tape and some candy love!
Every year, I make some sort of christmas gifts for our cats and for our friends’ cats. Last year, I made fabric birds.
I found this adorable pattern for knitted Christmas light bulbs – so I gathered up the catnip and my knitting supplies for cute presents for the cats.

A few years ago, I had this brilliant idea to knit a very special man in my life a golf club cover as a silly Christmas gift. I just hope it makes him smile or laugh a little when he gets it …

A few weeks ago, my friend Ashley was talking about how cool it would be for her daughter Emmalynn to have some fingerless gloves for the cooler weather. Emma is about 2.5 this year and has some issues with mittens. After a lot of searching for the right pattern, I decided to knit this pattern from While the Water Boils.
I hope that these gloves fit little Emma’s hands.
