I'm hoping to make most of Charlotte's Christmas gifts this year, a good money saver. I love making people gifts and I appreciate receiving handmade gifts as well.

 I'm hoping to have time to make her a Farmers Market basket full of felt fruit and Vegetables and other fun food.

Sometime in January after the holidays my plan is to make a kitchen set for Charlotte out of an old entertainment center, so I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start making some food for it for Christmas gifts so she'll have stuff to play with along with her play kitchen.

As a small girl all I did was play with my kitchen set. I secretly am making it for me to play with along with Charlotte. ;)

Here are a couple cuties I have made so far.

Will you be making any handmade gifts this year?

For the past couple months I've been busy refurbishing old furniture.
I got the desk many years ago from a nun and the coffee table came from salvation army for less than $10.
The color I used for both pieces are Mermaid's Net by Behr. I made a chalk paint, which is usually used for the distressed look, but I love the matte look and the paint goes on so smooth. It also dries pretty quick and no chips or peeling so far!! I used a wax paste to protect and seal the paint.  I am very happy how both pieces came out.
I'm looking forward to show you pictures of my completed living room makeover.

This is my next big project.

Have you been working on any projects lately?
