My Crafty Christmas

Wow… I can’t believe its been so long since I’ve last blogged!

While I have been very active on my Instagram account (I go by iknitiatives on there as well), I somehow managed to neglect my blog a bit.

It was actually for good reason. I was a crafting ninja throughout December!

First, I made 4 holiday wreaths for my GIL, MIL, mom, and sister. Then, I made 2 no sew fleece blankets, one for my FIL and one for my husband, amidst all of the other December activities like shopping for gifts and a cookie exchange.

While I had thought about knitting Christmas gifts, I procrastinated and turned to something that would be quicker. And I will say, I’m glad I went the route I did. The wreaths and no sew blankets were so warmly received and appreciated.

As for the cookie exchange, I made 3 different kinds of thumbprints – pecan, walnut, and almond topped with a lovely triple crown jam made from strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

As my Christmas gift from my hubby and to myself, I purchased a Canon Rebel T3i DSLR and Am getting acquainted with it. I also bought an Eye-Fi wireless SD card and I love that my photos will now be transferred directly to my smartphone and tablets. Probably the best $50 camera accessory Purchase. I am also hoping to soon add a new telephonic zoom lens.
