The Elfing Begins Again & Eco-Kids Tuesday

I have been very into making presents this Christmas season. I feel like maybe gifts are more meaningful when they are hand made. Either that or I am just cheap ;) No, really I love making things. I put a lot more thought into something I am making, than something I buy.

A tree pendant I made for my midwife, Ruth.
Because she helped me to grow. Spreading my branches, while staying rooted.

A necklace I made for Bunny from beads I ordered on Esty.
Gemstones to help sooth her and ease her discomforts.

An upclcled hat and mittens (that Bunny helped with) and wool boot insoles for The Hubs (Shh, don't tell...)

I plan to make more gifts. Pajamas. Maybe matching hats for my girls. Something for my sister's children. Who knows what I will end up with.

What gifts are you making this Christmas?

Welcome back to Eco-Kids Link-Up!  We had so many great posts shared last week! I enjoyed each and every one of them.  Here are a few of my favorites from last week!

Hey Mommy, Chocolate Milk has the cutest idea for decorating an outside tree with repurposed water bottles!

I adore this simple, eco-friendly Nativity scene over at An Idea on Tuesday!

We have a soft spot around here for gnomes!
