1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: handmade holiday on: October 06, 2010 06:02:28 AM
I've tried in the past to do a completely handmade Christmas but, time usually gets away from me and it doesn't always work out! This year, I seem to have a better handle on it and I keep having to check myself for having grandiose ideas! "Keep it simple, stupid" has become my mantra.  Grin

Luckily, my family knows that I am crafty and whenever I am working on a project at family gatherings, I always get compliments on whatever I am working on. I've recently learned how to weave baskets so, the extended family will be getting bread baskets which I think will please them. We are a carb lovin' family, lol.

This list is ever changing and, truthfully, I haven't figured out what all I'm doing yet!

Sister: A matching scarf and hat.
BIL: Same as above. I am also going to make them about 5 market bags since they like going to the farmer's market and such.
Niece: A co-worker's husband made me a rocking rubber ducky out of wood. The only thing I need to do is paint it! I might make her more bibs and a hat.
A hat to match mom's.
A hat to match dad's.
Sweater from Lion Brand patterns.
A pixie hat to match the LB sweater.

Mom: My sister and I are chipping in together to get her a camera so she can take pictures of her new granddaughter. I think I'm going to print her all the pictures I've taken so far and organize them in a photo box. Might also get her more scrapbooking supplies. AND, weave her a little basket organizer for her scissors and such.

Dad & his Wife: I might make some beachy Christmas decorations. I was going to do this last year and didn't have enough time.
Dad's Wife: Scarf

Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles: I believe I am going to weave them all bread baskets. I think I might also make that grapevine ball suet birdfeeder I've seen on here. They all like feeding the birds in their yards.

Purple means started.

Struck through means completed.

I haven't finished my gift planning notebook yet but, this is what I have so far! And I'm not done yet!

BIL - matching earflap tobaggan and mittens for when he is working in Montana this winter. Maybe a corduroy zippystrippyquilt.

Sister - A recipe book like the one in Alicia Paulson's book of family recipes. Zippystrippyquilt.

Father & Step-mom - They just got married last week. I'm going to make a patchwork pillow from the photos of their beach wedding. I think I am also going to make a "1st Christmas" ornament with sand and some of the seashells I picked up in those clear balls.

Aunt - Grapevine suet bird feeder and a doggy sweater for her new dachsund she is getting this weekend.

Paternal G'ma - Grapevine suet bird feeder. She also crochets so, I'm going to print some free patterns off of the internet and put them in a notebook for her.

Maternal G'ma - Grapevine suet bird feeder. Maybe a shawl.

Both G'pas - Scarves

That still leaves the best friend, goddaughter and my mom.

ETA: Figured out mom's gift! My sister is bringing the first grandbaby in to the family next spring! So, I am going to make my mom a scrapbooking kit with all things baby and extra supplies like glue, pens and fancy scissors.

I am officially SO jealous! I could never talk my family into being okay with this kind of wedding. I can't wait to see the pictures of everything!
