Handmade Secret Santa Gifts

I am a member on a cake forum. Actually it’s my home away from home. I’ve met up with a group of them two years in a row at the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show in Tulsa and had a blast both years. It’ll be an annual event as far as I’m concerned.

For the second year in a row I participated in a Secret Santa Exchange with the members of this forum. This year, what with the Handmade Pledge and all, I ended up making a couple of things for my SS (although I do admit to sending a book that I didn’t make and a couple of toys for her kids that I didn’t make).

For my Secret Santa recipient I made a reversible apron in her favorite colors (blue and green) from batiks. I also embroidered four towels with “inspirational” sayings (well, inspirational if you’re a cook or baker I guess).



Two handmade gifts completed.


9 trillion left to go…

    Frank, I have an embrodiered tea towel that I LOVE dearly. From a sweet friend in her 70’s.
    It says “Alcohol is the answer. I don’t remember the question.”

    Everyone will love your hand made gifts……..they are all beautiful works of art!
