Gearing up for a Handmade Christmas!!

Hi, everyone!  It's been a while since I've posted on here.  I've had a busy summer and fall.  I hosted several camps this summer at my home which were a great success.  So successful, in fact, that I decided to offer two monthly clubs for kids this fall: one for art and one for sewing.  They both filled quickly and are keeping me busy.  It's been so fun and rewarding to share my love of crafting and creating with others.  With all that going on, I haven't done much with Walnut Hill Handmade for a while.  I'm hoping that will change soon as I start to get orders for Christmas gifts.  Offerings from Walnut Hill Handmade for Christmas will include:  custom cloth dolls, custom name and word pillows, handcrafted dollhouses for little dolls such as Mini Lalaloopsy, Littlest Pet Shop, etc., felt cookie baking sets, and hand-knitted fingerless mittens.  I've included a few photos of a recent order I've done via Walnut Hill Handmade on Etsy.  For more samples of orders I've done, please visit the gallery page.  Please order early to give me plenty of time to make your one-of-a-kind creation.
