Vintage Christmas

So I know its Black Friday and everyone is out doing crazy shopping. I personally am not at all interested in big department stores, no matter how cheap their products may be. Instead, I'm spending my day getting started on making my christmas gifts. Who would want a package of 50% off socks when they could have a knitted handmade pair? (Not that I know how to knit socks, but you know what I mean).

I love making people gifts and I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite sources for gift-making inspiration- vintage craft magazines. This one is McCall's Christmas from 1970.









Don't forget! If you live in Portland, to stop by the GIVE Handmade Sale on Sunday. Come by my booth and say hello and do some holiday shopping! 10% of local artist's sales will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank! Happy weekend!
