Handmade for Her

December 20, 2012


It’s an interesting thing to have a child with a birthday the day after Christmas.  It’s a fine line to walk to be sure that each day gets it’s own special attention.  While we knew N’s birthday would be close to Christmas (her guess date was the 25th!) and we knew we wanted to keep it special in it’s own way, we’re still figuring out the details.

Thankfully, we have a little time to find our way.  In the meantime, we’ve decided to stay home for the holidays.  With so much activity within a matter of days, we thought it best for all of us to just keep things simple.

What are your plans for the holidays?


  • The doll was made by the lovely ladies of Windfall Dolls.  Her name is Olivia.
    Mama-made dolly birthday crown.  Tutorial here.
  • A simple mama-made doll.  Tutorial here.
    (Some of you fellow baby-wearers may recognize this wrap scrap.)
  • A still-yet-to-be-finished BSJ in Mosaic Moon’s Morrigan.  Oh, yes!

    During the days of growing up depending on the family, it would be a happy or “sad” occasion for a child to have a birthday so close to Christmas. If the family could afford the gifts, they would give the child a birthday and a Christmas gift separate. If not, it was one gift given as both. I love the knitting you have done. Its so cute! Thanks for sharing. :-)

    We are staying home as well. My little one turns three on the 27th so I understand the intention to create something special. But what a wonderful time to be born, full of celebration and jolliness all around. Merry Christmas and a happy birthday to N.
