Seriously, what woman doesn’t love jewelry? I can’t think of one.
This is why when I married the hubby, who has no brothers and three (yes - three) sisters, I knew exactly where I was going. I was going to learn how to make jewelry. This has been the foundation of my Christmas gifting prowess for the last four years. I wasn’t sure if it was a popular gift until last year when they opened the gift and said “Oooohh … it is our Jess’ jewelry gift!!” It is a thing now – my girlfriends love it too.
So here are a couple of things I am working on …
(Disclaimer – I still haven’t told the majority of my family and friends that I even have a blog so I can reveal some of my Christmas gifts. The hubby knows, my dad knows, my lil bro knows. And I have told my mom and she swears we will go out “and look at my blog thing” when I am there this weekend. Oh and my BFF Meighan knows – and she does read – love you Meeeiiighan!)
So for another BFF Kelly (who I will be telling as soon as she calls me back) I have made this necklace, not for Christmas but for her birthday (Happy Birthday!!). I chose this message especially for her – and she knows why.
For my sis-in-law Amy, I made these earrings. Cause I know she likes them big and with bling!
And for my other sis-in-law Megan, I made this necklace. I get to give it to her on Saturday. She finds out what her baby is on Monday! I am hoping she gets lots of dreams are between now and then!
I know what you are thinking … where is the gift for the other sister? Well, we don’t "Christmas" with her until after the New Year so I have a lil time. Don’t judge me, I have already told you I am a procrastinating crafter …
