11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini 12 Days of Christmas 2015 (sign up 7-26-17 to 8-10-15; s/o 11-23-15) on: September 14, 2015 03:18:24 PM
Not opening all the presents at once is hard but I try to hold out.

Stockings are the very best!  I rather have a stocking than a large gift.  Each year we all (5 sisters 2 parents and 3 husbands) buy each other one stocking gift. It makes for a wide range of items.  The husbands go for the candy because its easy. One of my sisters gives all the girls earrings and the guys golf balls that are funny.  Another sister always makes everyone an ornament (they are AWESOME).  My other sister lives in Scotland so she always gives something scottish. Last year we all got loch ness monster magnets. Another sister always gives a wind up toy.  My youngest sister changes what she gives every year.  Last year we all got funny fuzzy socks.  My parents always give maple sugar candy and some fun thing they find at the fair.  Last year we all got alligator jerky. I always give something homemade.  Last year everyone got a reindeer shaped washcloth with a homemade piece of soap inside.  

Once again a medium craft is turning into a large (ex-tra large actually) but its turning out AWESOME. I'm rethinking the other crafts because I can't keep making ex-large crafts  Undecided

Favorite Christmas song...if I have to choose just one I would say ave maria by vienna boys choir.  I always thought that they were really angels singing when I heard it as a child.

I have at long last finished my medium to large to huge craft.  I am totally alright with it being a huge because it turned out so well that all those hours mean nothing!  I kind of wish I could keep it...I guess I could keep it and no one would be the wiser but I wouldn't.  I have changed the list of what I am going to make at least 30 times now.  I really need to be kept away from pintrest.

Christmas treat....hmmm do I only get to choose one? I'm a sweets girl through and through. I am going to have to choose the blueberry cheesecake my older sister makes. It's actually a recipe passed down by my grandmother who found the recipe in Good housekeeping years ago. I've tried to make it but it's never as good as my sister's.

I have my final list of the 12 presents. I'm still working on my extra huge medium that has been upgraded to a large. I did finish a fun small one today.

I am currently working on a medium that is actually a extra huge large...glad to read I am not the only one who does this.  I love how it is turning out so its all good. 

I've had a wonderful time reading everyones' Christmas traditions!  Our only tradition now is we open gifts Christmas eve because none of us are morning people.   Smiley

Thank you everyone for the wonderful feedback.

My little sister has claimed it for her dorm room so it will be going to good use...her dorm room needs some serious help.

When I read the challenge I immediately wanted to do something with newspaper yarn...I am in love with the stuff.  As I was pondering what I could do my mom asked me if I wanted a basket/trashcan that had seen better days.  I immediately thought it would make a great shape for a light/chandelier plus the light would shine through it in a cool way.  Here is the end product



Here is what I started with


The first step was to make a ton of yarn


Then I hot glued and weaved my way around the basket


At last the basket is covered


I then took the parts out of a broken lampshade



I decided the lamp needed more so I broke out the "crystal" (plastic all the way) I stole from the cheezy lamp ever years ago.



I really like how it turned out.  The pictures do not do the lamp justice in the dark



Thanks for looking
