Great idea to get started on the gift-giving ideas now! This planning ahead will certainly help eliminate my usual holiday tradition: a sleep-deprived December.


Hi Linn, I also make all my birthday gifts, so I try to make Christmas gifts for those recipients at the same time, and put them away. I have a large family so that works for me! Looking forward to seeing some of your gift ideas. Hashi


All your cards are beautiful. I, too, haven't bought a card in years. I either make my own or I make a phone call when I've none to send. I keep mine simple...use my own digital images (imagine YOUR beautiful photos on a card!) for the front with a poem or verse of my own inside. I don't have nearly as large a collection for many different occasions. But, maybe one day.

Thank you for this new series of entries to come. I'll look forward to your gift ideas.


Your cards are stunning! I am so impressed.


That bird is awesome! I'm floored that you've already started holiday crafting. You go girl!


My goal is to have one homemade gift for everyone this year. I have a head start because of the raspberry jam I made this summer. I love your cards-you are so talented in the card/stamping area!


Beautiful cards...I've been starting to think about what to make for Christmas gifts this year also.


Wow Linn, these are so professional looking. I would swear that they were purchased. Of course I love the aqua and red the best. I too am going to work on a handmade Christmas. Gone are the silly, stale Amazon wish lists. So far I have a list of people with a present idea next to their name. Of course the hardest part will be explaining this to the Amazon wish list families members.

Oh how wonderful! I think I will try my hand at homemade cards this year. Too much cuteness!

oh my, your cards are truly beautiful! i look forward to the many handmade ideas you'll be sharing here and am super impressed you have begun so early! ;)

All those cards are so, so, so beautiful. I love scrapbooking too! I just posted about it, but yours are amazing!


You have so many great ideas for your cards - thanks for sharing!! Your post has gotten me very excited for the Stampin' Up party that I'm hosting this weekend. I try to at least make cards every year, I've been expanding to handmade gifts, but some people still end up with store bought as I just don't start early enough. Hope you have a wonderful vacation.

I tried homemade Christmas gifts before but turned out so ugly. Wish I could be like you.

Your Christmas cards are awesome! I am a big fan of handmade products and I have my own website. Actually, if you can make more of this you can actually sell them, a lot of people are looking for gifts like this especially the holiday season. If you want you can visit my site and go list your handmade products :)
