I wanted to make as many of Christmas gifts as possible this year -- since I had some extra time and NEED to save money! I decided to go with a cooking theme, since it's something my family enjoys doing together and that I've been doing a lot of these days. I made my own recipe books with my favorite recipes from 2008 and packaged them with felted potholders that I knit. Yippeee! They turned out pretty well, though these pictures are quite crappy.
