2 Days Until Christmas and the Handmade Holiday Ideas Keep Coming!

  016 

It's just 2 days until Christmas! But we still have inspiration for you galore. Take a look at the beauties Jim Hankins and Donna Espiritu have for you today!

First, Jim creates another handmade masterpiece using A Christmas Carol and Gilded Lily!

"I’ve always loved the rounded shapes of Swedish clocks with their strong circular architecture leading up to the face of the clock.  I love clocks in general and make many as gifts because it’s a gift that keeps on ticking…It’s functional.  My interpretation of the Swedish clock has been miniaturized to 4 x 9-inches and sits beautifully on a side table, desk or even a mantle.  The Swedish Table clock also has a small little drawer for tucking in treasured memories…

There are two versions of the clock.  The Swedish Christmas Clock and The Gilded Lily Clock." ~Jim
