I'm still accepting a couple more Custom Recipe Illustrations for the Holidays! (through Thanksgiving) If you want some details, drop me a line at Jessica@firstpancakestudio.com or check out the listing on Etsy.  Here's some of my favorite custom recipe prints from last year:

 Croquetas de la Abuela

Thanks to the link on BuzzFeed I've been getting lots of requests this year!  I love hearing people's stories about their family recipes and seeing photos of them cooking in their kitchen's.  

Grandma Sember's Stuffed Cabbages

 

It reminds me that while the holidays are often busy and stressful... I really do look forward to spending time with my family and preparing a delicious meal together.  

Personalized Presents on Etsy!

So excited to be featured on the Etsy blog with other fabulous illustrators and artists making custom orders for the Holidays!  Some of my other favorites: name plate, Home for the Holidays illustration, Under the moon cufflinks, Morse code necklace, and Custom Doll in an animal suit!

Free Printable Knitting Tags

This year I challenged myself to make many hand-knit gifts! I took a trip to North Hampton, MA to WEB'S, the biggest yarn store in the country!  Have you been?  It's amazing!

  I love the whole process of knitting a gift; from selecting the pattern,  choosing the yarn and then wrapping it up all pretty! I'm still trying to get a bunch of presents finished up for the holidays.   So far I've completed 2 scarves, 2 sets of mitts and a hat.. Not bad right?

 

I've been seeing adorable free printable tags on many of my favorite websites; on RavelryDesign Sponge,  and an awesome round up of free printables on Creature Comforts!  I decided to make my own for the holidays!

 I really loved the idea of including the washing directions so the recipient knows exactly how to wash their gift!  And it was fun to draw all the little symbols....

Some of these aren't marked.  Just in case any of my family members are reading the blog : )  The tags don't line up perfectly, but they were good enough for me!  You can still cut off the exterior color and they look pretty good.

Anyways,  I wanted to offer them up for free for any of my knitting readers!  Here's the Poinsettia tag front, back and the Geo tag front and back.  So, Happy Holidays!!  Also as a reminder, if you want to follow my blog via Facebook please "like" my page!
