I'm not making much because I'm broke...  Cry
but I did make a wreath for my family (it's a cross between a wreath and a family tree) and a crocheted blanket for my boyfriend.
Supplies and all probably cost me $30?

Ok I am nearly finished with Mike's stuff. I am filling his stocking now with crafty stuff and dollar store goodies.
oh, Mike is my boyfriend btw. I am finished with my dad's gifts. All crafted and wrapped. I am done or very nearly with my mom's gifts. I still have to finish my brothers' stuffs. They are always around so it's hard to do their blankets. I think I am pretty much done my friends' presents. Just gotta crank out a couple more rice bags cause I was short somehow. Also have to make some cookies. Will have to recruit my brothers.

I also make chocolate covered pretzels with almonds/sprinkles or white chocolate accents. Then I got creative and crumbled pretzels with almond slices and mixed them with chocolate and made lumps of chocolate crunchiness. Hope they taste good!

I used a regular bauble ornament and hot glued some innards of and old computer all over it..he LOVES it:

I just wanted to share that my baby and daddy poppets stole the show.  I was really nervous again completing with my sis (who gave my DD tons of superhero figures --Xmen, TMNT, and Superfriend) and my bro (wii), but she loved the poppets best of all.  Heehee.  She's a little craftster and I think she loves the fact that I made them especially for her.  She liked their little boy parts too.

We mostly made our gifts for Christmas, and here are some of the things we made.
My husband made these ornaments he made 10 of them. All of them were double sided made out of sycamore and mahogony(I think).

Then he made these pens two are made out of ash, and the other are redwood.

And I made the bags that the pens and ornaments went in.

Also I made this taggie blanket for my husband's cousin's baby.

I made this purse for my mil, she loved it. She had asked my husband and I to make her something so that she could show off our stuff to her teacher friends.

Rockin Guitar strap shoulder pad. Did you use a pattern or just wing it? My bro's bday is coming soon and he is hard to shop for. A new shoulder pad for his new guitar strap would be awesome to make him. Everything looks so cool, and everyone looks so happy too!  Grin

Hey, thanks! I actually winged it. I made a pattern on graph paper first, but just kind of guessed at the measurements. If I am feeling really ambitious I might try to make a curved one some day. One thing you can't see from the pic is that I used fleece on the inside bottom layer for more cushion. And bias tape. Lots of bias tape.
