My mother is one of the craftiest people that i know...sewing, quilting, jewelry making, clay beads, knitting, etc.... I am limited in my crafting... time being a major factor. My crafts include beading, knitting (very slow), glass etching, hand sewing (my sewing machine is not in working order) etc.

I am at a total roadblock on a Christmas present for her... what does one make for someone who can make anything? or should i just give her a bunch of crafting supplies?

I'm just in need of ideas... my dad is getting fleur de lis etched hi ball glasses. I can do something similar but i would like to do something different.

Thanks![/font][/font]

Is there a craft she isn't skilled at yet that she has mentioned wanting to start? Maybe get her a book/dvd on how-to and some supplies?

Ditto the idea of getting her started on a new craft.  Maybe you could make an example of the craft for her and give her the supplies to make her own, or you could make a crafty instruction guide to go with the supplies.

personally i'd love it if somebody gave me a crafted item rather than supplies this time of the year. I love supplies, yes, but i find that i usually don't have time to make things for myself for most of the time that i have for crafting and i'd love it if somebody who's received something handmade from me reciprocated the effort every now and then Smiley

I saw these neat photo pillows on Decorating Cents (I was on maternity leave and watched a lot of daytime TV).  They used photo transfer paper to create some really nice personalized pillows.

Here's some info on photo transfer pillow projects:

If you pick the right fabric you can use fabric glue and don't even need to sew anything.
