Handmade Christmas

So this Christmas I tried to make as many gifts as I could by hand. Here are a few pictures, and my list:
-24 bottles of vanilla extract (made with Meagan, 12 for my family/friends and 12 for hers!)
-24 fabric gift bags
-painted/appliqued pillowcase for John
-a lot of felt play food for Jack & Ruby and a set for Meagan's boys
-2 sets of wooden peg dolls for Olivia and Jack of all of our family members, with felt bags for storage
-smockets for Ruby & Alex
-9 fabric napkins for my mom
-framed embroidery for Jason
-framed embroidery for Sarah
-seasonal word blocks for Sarah
-baby doll for Olivia

is that it? really?

That's a lot! I love the framed embroidery. I have a pic of the vanilla out of the bag (I reused the bag for some herbal tea):

It smells SO GOOD. I can't wait to try it.... I think the handmade Christmas was approximately the best thing ever.
