gertie and i had a lovely holiday in cleveland, and for the second year in a row i stuck to the handmade pledge. last year i bought a lot of handmade gifts on etsy, especially for my nieces who love their American Girl dolls and Build-A-Bears. i got them each handmade sleeping bags for their dolls, and hand-knit doll sweaters too. this year i made my mom and sis the All-Day Tote from Lotta Jandsotter's book, and the nieces got totes with their initials appliqued on. i'll confess i did buy some chocolate from the Polish candy store in Greenpoint, but that's ok, right?
