Anybody hungry?

I made this apple cake for my neighbors. It's hard to see in the photo, but there are cute little gingerbread people on top. This is courtesy of a sweet little loaf pan I received from my dad in Christmas past. If anyone wants the recipe, let me know!

Personalized Coffee Cozies

Here are the fabulous coffee cozies I made for my coworkers! Each one has the recipient's name embroidered on it. Thanks to the tutorial by "pink milk and fairycakes" on flickr for this lovely holiday gift idea!

Blouse for Maria

I've been working on many handmade gifts for Christmas this year, and I wanted to share this one! My awesome friend Maria is pregnant and will have to suffer through the Atlanta heat next spring. So, I made a top that will keep her both cute and cool while awaiting the arrival of her little one. It's inspired by those adorable pillow case dresses you see all over Canton.

Since Maria received her gift package today, I figured it was ok to share it with everyone else. No surprises spoiled here!
