What is a
Thrifty Christmas
Making Handmade Gifts
Blog Hop
you may ask?


We know we love to receive handmade gifts 
and the Design Team will be making several for those 
on their Christmas lists, so we thought 
we would share the projects we create that we can give as a gifts.

This hop starts today, December 9th (12:01 am CST)
and will run all weekend
ending on Sunday, December 11th(11:59 pm CST)
to allow you plenty of time to hop.
Now with any hop there has to be some prizes along the way right?
Well this hop is no exception!!
You will want to make sure to visit each design team member's blog and leave a comment as each one of us 
will be giving away one TSB image!

If that isn't enough to entice you to hop with us, well maybe this will...
 1 random person
(who comments on all DT blogs)
will be selected to win the
Grand Prize:
$25 in digis from TSB store

See all the products in the TSB Store 

Here are my hand-made gifts....

I've been a busy little elf... :)

Here are some earrings made with the TSB images 
lollipop & holly ...

Purchase these earrings, $8.00 per pair

SOLD (both)

I used my copics, shrink plastic & jewelry findings 
for some funky fun earrings for gift giving...


This is my Breast Cancer Bangle bracelet - not sure whom it will go to but I have made it anyways. 
I am in the habit of creating things & then storing them for the 'right' person... I love the little pink ribbon beads...

Purchase Pink BC Bangle Bracelet $25.00
(see listing at bottom)


Its a beading kinda time for me right now... I call this set 
Blue Crush...
It is a long pendant style with hammered silver accents with blue glass, 
the bracelet is all hammered silver and easy
elegant silver hoop earrings...
It just sparkles...

Purchase Blue Crush set complete $45.00
(see list at bottom)


I am loving the silk tied sets... this one is called
Green Silk Stones...
I love the delicate nature of the set with the hand knotted silk cording with the stones along the necklace & pendant accent.  
I used a 14ct gold hoop set for the earrings 

Purchase  Green Silk Stones  complete set for $45.00
(see list at bottom)


Here is another set...

This one is 
Purple Haze... 
again the hand knotted silk cording 
with satin silver & purples beads with a little glass accents...
cute matching earrings...

Purchase the complete set for $45.00


It wouldn't be me if I didn't have some Dragonflies somewhere!  :)
These are definitely my favorite!
I love how the glass teardrop beads work well for the 
wings & then the small crystals with sterling or gold beads
to make up the tail... 
is it called a tail on a Dragonfly???  

I seem to always make up the post-it notes
posty purse notes for stocking stuffers.  I do
get carried away with the variety of paper colors...


Ooooh... another set ...
Purple Moon... 
lots of purple, glass & crystals, 
a double necklace pendant with matching 
bracelet & earrings....

Purchase  Purple Moon  complete set for $45.00
(see list at bottom)


A simple but effective hand-stitched 4" x 5" 
journal - I just simply call "Red".  I love the seed 
bead accent hooped dangles along the 
exposed stitch spine...
I've missed making journals...
must get back to it...

That's the end of my show... LOL
Hope you enjoyed it...
