my homemade christmas gifts (Pic heavy!)

I'd like to finally share with you ladies the gifts I made this year for Christmas that I gave to family and friends.

I bought the glasses and drink mix for our gift exchange at work. I etched the words "weeble" and "wobble" on the glasses. One of the psychologists who tests preschoolers got this gift, so she appreciated the humor.

I etched our daycare ladies names one the mugs. (Thanks for the idea Charys!!) I found a snowman soup recipe that I attached to the mugs.

Made one for Cadence (and for myself and Shawn)

Here is she is drinking from it on Christmas morning!

Made these ornaments for the grandparents and us.
They are the kids handprints then decorated to look like snowmen! I then stickled dots on them to look like snowflakes.

I made coasters for the grandparents. (I still have to apply the finishing on them and the cork for the back)

Made a storyboard for the grandparents (and us too!)

and the one i made before of Cadence:

I love it. I've made those snowman ornaments with my preschoolers many times. I love them. I was heartbroken when Caleb's shattered this year.

The etchings turned out great. So did the coasters. What a neat idea!

I used shatterproof ornaments. I want these to last a very long time! Smile

ooooh, love the mugs! Did you use Jasmine font? I like that much better! The pic of Cadence drinking from hers' on Christmas morning is so sweet! That would be fun to scrap.

How did you do the coasters?? Such a coooool idea! I want to make some of those!

Charys- Yes, I did use the Jasmine font! I like the elegant look of the names on those mugs. Thank you so much for posting the ones you made as well. Those mugs from WalMart are AWESOME!!

Here is the website I used to make the coasters: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/photo_tiles/

You'll have to post pictures when you create the coasters!!

all your stuff is great! I love those handprint snowman ornaments. I will have to remember that idea! Your coasters turned out awesome too Smile

I am going to have to jump in and etch something already. I do need to get back to actually scrapping pics, after all my holiday gifts stalled that process.

THose mugs are perfect and so cute. I agree with CHarys, that pic of Cadence drinking from hers in her jammies is so sweet. The ornaments are adorable too. TFS
