What do you make for your family, inlaws, and friends?

vanilla? Like vanilla extract? How do you do that?

I've seen the vanilla made with vanilla beans and vodka.

Not sure what I'll have time for this year. But in the past I've done coasters from ceramic tile, scarves, homemade laundry soap, wreaths and I'm sure there is more I'm not thinking of. I've been finding lots of ideas on pinterest this year.

Fleece toys for pets (braided scraps into ropes are my favorite), crochet hats, scarves, quilts, waldorf style dolls, super hero capes, hooded robes for dress up, flavored popcorn (chocolate, caramel, found a new one for peppermint), sewn bags, pillow case dresses, flannel nightgowns/pants, crayon rolls, art work, handprint ornaments, ornament frames that hold photos, and other hand crafted ornaments/Christmas decorations.

Well last year I made hooded towels, quilts, fabric tent, lapboards, a button letter picture, and other stuff I can't remember all now. This year I plan to make those rice or wheat filled fabric squares as heating pads/ice packs. 2 for each kid so they have one in the freezer and one to heat up. I also think I might do some sugar scrubs this year for some ladies.

You all are so crafty! The kids and I paint pottery- a coffee mug for dad and ornaments every year for the grandparents.

Photo books, knit scarves/hats/mittens, cookie/cake mixes in mason jars, occasionally I will paint a whimsy family portrait for someone. I spend all year long trading design work for WAHM made gifts. Some favorites among my family are handmade soaps and pedicure sets.
