41  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: What are you making for Christmas this year (2008)? on: October 18, 2008 07:48:08 AM
I told myself last year that I would learn a number of different crafts (e.g. paper crafting, sewing, knitting, jewelry making), so that I would be able to craft most of my gifts this year. Unfortunately, despite all of my best intentions, I still have not learned any specific crafting techniques (though I have bought a number of supplies and borrowed lots of books from the library). I still want to have a handmade Christmas though, so I am hoping to make some easy crafts, buy items crafted by others, and/or buy used gifts.

I haven't decided what I want to make yet, but I thought that I would start keeping a list of some of my ideas here.

Maybe I could dress up as some variation of Fancy Nancy:

That would be fun and easy! A number of preschoolers would probably recognize Fancy Nancy and those that wouldn't, would still think that I looked silly (which is all that really matters).

I need an easy costume for myself that would be recognizable to and appropriate for preschool-aged kids (I am hosting a Halloween puppet show for 0-5 year olds). Last year, I went as the Paper Bag Princess, which was super easy. I would love to do a storybook or nursery rhyme character again this year, but I am open to other ideas as well.

This is a great idea! How did you attach the memo pad to the disk?

Anyone bored of looking at my inchies yet? Undecided Roll Eyes

Nope! Your inchies are beautiful! I especially like these bugs and butterflies ones.

I love this idea! Your fabric is really cute - and fitting as well.


Not being an on-the-go tea drinker (I do not carry tea at all; it stays at home) I am curious to know how you use the wallet, where you take it, where you get your hot water and cups and such.  It is very cute and I love the fabric!!


I bring tea to work where we have a kettle, ceramic tea pots, microwave and mugs (though I use my own travel mug).
