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

Re: Christmas Crafting Ideas?

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: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2009/04/trash-bag.html

I like the car trash bag idea. I need to make one for my own trash-filled car!

Re: Christmas Crafting Ideas?

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 (http://pinterest.com/pin/182747697349005733/) 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!
