It's not too early to be making (or thinking about) some small gifts!

This isn't going to be an extensive post on small gifts for friends, co-workers, etc.  But I wanted to share a few thoughts.  This post: 10 Small Gift Ideas to Give to Your Friends by Sarah Beals at Joy-Filled Days will give you some terrific inspiration.  Some of her ideas are homemade or put together at home; others are things to buy.

I hope to share a few posts this month about small gifts to make.  Some ideas right off the top of my head are coasters, mug mats, tea wallets, dishcloths, potholders --- nice small, uncomplicated projects, some of which could be worked on while traveling or at the lake or the beach.  I've made loads of these sorts of projects in the past and have many ideas to share.  Stay tuned!


  1. I've never heard of a tea wallet but what a great idea!

  2. Thanks, Luludou! Have fun with these ideas!

  3. Thanks, Lana and Pamela!

    Pamela -- I am not sure what happened but I recently found all of your comments in the unmoderated comments in my blogger dashboard. None of them ever came through via email as is the norm with comment moderation. So I just found them this morning, or they would have been published before now.

    As for the tea wallet, I couldn't seem to put a workable link in this comment, but if you click "fun with felt" in the label cloud, a post with a link to the tea wallet instructions is about the third one down. They are a fun and easy project to work on in the summer time. I use mine when we travel; others might use theirs for work or other uses. They are so cute and useful too!


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
