Sorry for the fuzzy pics  Embarrassed

Here are my completed marble magnets.








and the decorated tins



I didn't do too great on them, there were lots of air bubbles in the first batch. But the second batch came out great so next time they will look nicer!

Well, I have finished almost all of my gifts!  I think I am going to add homemade dog buiscuits to the list for all of the dogs in our family.  (There will be 5 dogs and 4 cats with our whole family this christmas).  TracyMarie, thanks so much for posting that recipe.  I also made 2 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange at work tomorrow.

I will post the pictures of my FO's as soon as I can.  (I had to unwrap one of my gifts because I had forgotten to thake a photo. Grin)

OK, I finally have a minute to upload all this stuff. I still have one item to finish tonight (my sister's Trailer Park Boys T shirt) and a few things like melt and pour soap and a Buddha figure for my best friend. I forgot to photograph my Mom's travel/make up bag before I wrapped it.

So, here's where I'm at (starting in upper left corner and moving right, then back to left side in middle then moving right etc):
1) felt ornaments for my Mom. I've since strung them with silver embroidery floss
2) el dia de los muertos tea towels for my sister
3) The Green Bastard Holly Ornament for my Pal Jenny
4) A "Lucky" make-up/ travel bag for my sister. Also in photo two monster dolls (before they were stuffed) I made for the Christmas Family that my friends and I are sponsoring.
5) Noel tree ornament I made for a friend
6) a set of Christmas scotties I made for my friend Wendy. I have since added a plaid scarf to each of the little guys.



7) an iPod cozy for my buddy Maddy's BF (complete with his last name & hockey # on it). Done in team colours.
8 ) Cardboard and fabric Partridge in a Pear Tree ornaments for my Sweetheart.
9) I made two sets of these button fruit napkins. One for my Mom and one for my friend Kate. If I have enough time I'll make a floral set for my sister.

Although the following two photos were taken of last years batch, I'll be making more doggie treats for all my furry pals again this year.



This is how I package them up in glassine bags.



I didn't think a dog would notice something like this, but everytime I bring a treat in a glassine bag to my friend Lisa, her giant German Shepard always tries to snatch it out of my hand. LOL

I am so up for this. I've been lurking on this thread since its start.
Here's my list:
   Sister 1:
      Lutheran Sisterhood Gunclub Teeshirt, Something else
   Sister 2:
     Chronicles of Narnia (Got it when my roommate moved out),
     Sock monkey
   Lady Friend 1 & 2:
      Sock monkey, Do Not Disturb Reading the Bible/Making out
      Doorhangers
   Male Friend 1:
      "Bad Mother F**ker" wallet (he has a pink one that he catches  
      crap for, and what's manlier than a wallet stenciled with   
      profanity?)
   Male Friend 2:
      Bruce Campbell Teeshirt, Otherkin Slayer kit (Soap, Holy water
      bottle, perhaps a stake... something else I'm sure)
   Male Friend 3:
      I <3 Zombies Teeshirt
   Male Friend 4:
      ?
   Entirety of the maternal side of my family:
      Washcloths (knit!) DONE! (50-ish, maybe more.)


So, basically, 4 stencilling projects (need to buy shirts and a wallet), 2 Doorhangers, and 3 sock monkeys (one of which is nearly done). Mmmmm... Christmas break.

Everyone has made such awesome, cool and thoughtful gifts. We are sure to put a dent in sales of all those multi-national (walmarty-type) companies. Cheesy

Phew! Just put the last posted prezzo... in the post! With 30 minutes to spare of the last post day before Christmas- typical me! I didn't get any pictures (because I was rushing about like a crazy loon!) but I sent:

Ex-housemate- Handmade design book
School friend- 'Don't tell Mum' book (bought)
Bestest buddy- squeezy cushion thing (he often sleeps at his pomtooter, because he's useless!), mix CD (Compiled by me and my Boyfriend-of-oh-such-obscurre-tastes) and 'The Dharma Bums' book (bought)

alas- I have a couple of overseas people who I just haven't finished, so they're getting a January package. This is the usual run of things... BUT! I have finished a postcard sized scrapbook for my chum in Osaka who collects art gallery postcards, and I've bought 2 packs of Booja Booja truffles (also known as the greatest foodstuff on planet Earth- I mean it!) Smiley

Pics of other prezzos should be up by the end of the week! Horray! I've still got loads to do though, so I'd best vamoose and get to it! ^_^

Here's what I've gotten done so far:

3 Sock monkeys. They're my second try at them, and they worked out much much better (seeing as the first try one had no tail or ears).

I just need to stencil 3 shirts, one wallet, and make 2 doorhangers, then wrap everything up.
