Christmas is right around the corner.  
We have been having a little family adventure this week, details to come.  
During our adventure, we were able to celebrate Christmas with my family.  
I was so excited to give my nieces these handmade gifts.  
The shirts with their initial on them were made by my talented friend, Lisa.  
She also makes the shirts I showed you in this post.  
The felted wool flowers were made by me.  

I loved the colors so much in this "h", I had to make three flowers to go with it.

The "M" shirt went to this precious little thing.  She melts my heart.

I also had Lisa make one for my adorable little nephew.  I can't wait to see this on him. 

Speaking of gift giving, I wanted to share my two favorite free printable gift tags for the season.

The first one is from Martha herself.  They can be found here. 
I printed these out for several friends and neighbors. 
I punched a whole in the top, added some twine, yarn and ribbon
and attached a set of them to a plate of baked goodies.

The second one is from Emily at Jones Design Company. 
She introduced the tags last year and I used them on all my Christmas gifts. 
I used the polk-a-dot, stripe and chevron tags all year long on gifts.  
They come in several different colors.

Are your gifts wrapped and ready?
