we've done cake/tea in a mug

handmade scarves

kid (and mama) made cards


A pottery barn knock off 'Noel'

Ornaments - specifically the dove one, the santa one is for kids to make obviously lol

Peppermint bark

play kitchen

DIY trofast - you can put lego square things on top and make it a lego table/organizer!

I guess I consider food to be crafty? lol

I haven't decided what I'll be doing for kids yet (I have 13 nieces & nephews ages 6 and under...with 2 more to be born by Christmas).

For adults, I'll be making car trash bags:

I think my nieces and nephews would live this..... Plus the parents would hate it :mrgreen: heheh.

No but really I live this I might even have to paint names down the sides so if they end up t the cabin then they will know who's is who's.

I really love that.... I need the glow in the dark paint too.

Can't wait to see what others are making! A friend and I are doing "crafting christmas in July" this year - one crafting night a week to work on christmas stuff that we don't have time for during the holiday season. So far (the first week) I made a christmas planner ( and finished DS2's stocking. I made coordinating stockings last year for the whole family but couldn't finish DS2's cause we didn't know his name yet. :-) This week I need to finish the tree skirt that I'm making. After that I'm not sure. I'm thinking maybe little wooden princesses or superheros. The only problem is that if I do the superheros, I don't know if they'd be for DS1 or for DH!

We are going to do pictures blocks for the gparents main gift.

And then add the salt ornament and some lotion bars.

Not sure what we are going to do for the Aunts & Uncles! Have to start looking for some ideas on those!

And for my niece and nephews I'm going to do that 5 pillows sewn together thing and maybe some soap with toys in them.
