Homemaking Inspiration ~ Gift Giving Ideas ~ Kelsey's Corner

I love to see the variety in ideas and style that blossom from another homemaker's ideas (which in turn creates more inspiration for the original sharer!). Today I wanted to include some homemaking inspiration from Kelsey. She used our tutorials to make some lovely gifts while implementing her own creative twists. The results are quite lovely. Commentary from Kelsey is also included for your viewing pleasure :)

"One picture shows the un-paper towels, which I am going to use for cleaning cloths. I cheated and sewed them wrong sides together and used pinking shears on the edges. Inspired by your latest bathroom post, I also made room spray and toilet cleaning fizzies for the bathroom and decorated them with the labels you provided."

"The other picture is of burp cloths I made for a friend's new baby following your tutorial! I love how they turned out, and with these in mind I stocked up when flannel was on sale so that I can make some to use with my baby :)"

"Here are a couple pictures of the wedding gift I made. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I had so much fun making and smelling everything! The newlywed couple plans on having a lot of blue throughout their home so I went with that. The things wrapped in white paper are the rubber gloves and sponges. I included instructions for using the products as well."

Thank you for sharing with us Kelsey! Your homemaking supplies and gifts are just lovely! Your wrapping is beautiful! You have left me with some great ideas and I think others will appreciate them too!

  1. Dear Jes & Kelsey,
    This is a beautiful post, which I have thoroughly enjoyed for the elegantly practical giftmaking!
    Jes, just enjoy your time away! Kelsey, cherish your little bundle of joy!

  2. Such beautiful ideas and I must add that handmade gifts are always a delight to give and receive.

    Mank thanks for this delightful post full of sweet ideas. Hugs and blessings!

  3. I love how coordinated everything is! It reminded me of the Crabtree and Evelyn stuff that used to all match....but a set of theirs would cost over $50! I'm thinking this is a little (wink wink) more affordable. And, you can customize the colors and scents for the person. I think I might do the first set for my friends for Christmas in '18. I've already embroidered towels for them this year. This gives me plenty of time to get moving. I hadn't seen the toilet bombs here so I need to go hunting!!

    Thanks for sharing, Kelsey!

  4. Kelsey has definitely knocked it out of the park! Everything looks so gorgeous and I agree with Debby in KS, it does remind me of Crabtree and Evelyn items! All the items Kelsey has made are amazing, LOVE THEM!!

  5. These gifts turned out so beautifully! Thank you for your ideas, especially the gift wrapping.

  6. Everything looks absolutely beautiful Kelsey. I'd love to be gifted something so lovely. Mimi xxx

  7. Dear JES,
