Handmade/Homemade Christmas Gifts

My friend Jen and & decided to save a little money with some gifts this year by chipping in together and making in bulk some homemade salt scrubs. It was really easy to find a recipe and the nice professional looking containers for them. Plus Jen did a great job creating the labels. The next photo shows how I packaged them up, complete with a special spoon for stirring up the goodness. Now all I have to do is convince Jen to start making these and sell them in her shop. The scrubs work fantastic on your hands & feet.

The Halloweenies.

So yes, this is a bit late in posting but I am still working on
this whole blog thing. I had a Halloween party for my son
and some of his friends and had to share this picture of the
Halloweenies I made. To make them you take the large size
cocktail smokies and then a can of Pillsbury dough (it's the
large sheet of the crescent dough). Cut thin slices of the
dough and then wrap them around the lil' smoky like a
mummy. Lastly make a set of eyes from mustard. And
then cook them of course.

Just one day after posting my new rings on Flickr I was
contacted by Ringblogger to feature one of the rings.
Well they ended up posting both new pieces and I am
thrilled for the write up and recognition. The blog is
a great site for those that are ring fanatics and love
great varieties and styles.

Some New Items.

After a long time of procrastinating I finally managed to create 
these wood rings.  They are very simple pieces and I love making 
them.  The wood is 1" wide and attached to a flat white gold ring 
base that is adjustable. I'd love to try making the rings with some 
of my larger wood discs but don't know how they would hold up 
if they happened to hit something.

My Son's Lunch

I took this photo recently after serving my son's lunch to him.  It was just a great shot of how he will incorporate his toys in with his meals- they should never stray far.  Each truck has its own parking space nestled in between pieces of salami sandwich.  


KnottyByNature Designs is a business comprised of two styles of shops: Outlined & KnottyByNature.  Although I sell most of my work on Etsy I am currently expanding to other venues with hopes of creating full time.
