I held off posting pictures of the things I made for Christmas because my lil sister has a profile on here, although shes not nearly as addicted as I am I didn't want to chance it. Then I FORGOT! So here it is all in one... cause they all hold something....

Lil Bros wallet- HUGE Alabama fan he also got juggling balls made from the same material but cant seem to find the pic...




Lil Sis' colored pencil roll w/ fill in pencils before she got it. She also got the wallet I used to make my babyangel tutorial, HA!! she saw it a million times and didn't know it was hers...



Moms eye glasses holder. Closes with a ribbon tie. Crappy pics much prettier in person


Grandmas tissue holder:


and my personal favorite!!!
I got my angelbaby the twist up crayons so she wouldn't break them all the time (ps-doesnt work still broke 'em-the crayon part anyway) I made her an apron that holds 8 of them and a matching tote to Carry her coloring books



BONUS action shot of her with it on, she wouldn't take it off **loves it**

I actually figured out the apron from the crayon rolls everyone was making, shes too young for that so the apron came about. It was her favorite thing this year, it made me sooooo happy! Its simple to make if you have any questions let me know  Smiley

This is the first year I havent been able to splurge on everyone. So at first I felt pretty bad. But I think Im gonna do this this year too!

Side note, my lil sister (11 yrs old) got in the crafty gift spirit to ... she made her "boyfriend" an Auburn fleece hoodie pullover. Threw us all for a loop when she came in and asked if we had a jacket pattern and some blue and orange fleece, but she did it! Ill have to get her to post it! I have a pic but its totally her creation and kick butt!

Thanks ladies!

for me, it wasnt a matter of cost but something I had wanted to do for ages.
I posted a lot of the items, bar my daughters, who reads this from time to time..(mental note...get pics of the suitcase I revamped for her)
she even ended up making me the best thing I got for christmas

I've wanted to do it for a long time too but never thought my stuff would be good enough, since being on craftster my confidence has skyrocketed! Thanks to all the tips, hints and tutorials from all the amazing crafters on here Ive managed to become pretty good (tooting my own horn a lil) Even making my own wallet pattern and tutorial. Its a huge reward to see people liking your creations and even bigger one when you can give back to a community like this.
The quilt your daughter made is gorgeous! I'm sure it made you proud as well as excited to receive it! My mom and my grandmothers whom I learned a bit from  are quite proud of my work progress too. And thats the BEST compliment!!

He actually was the recipent of my first ever wallet, when I showed it to him he said THANKS, I was like um, well it wasnt for you but if you like it you can have it. LOL

I love the Dora apron. I wish there would have been Dora when I was a littlie. Also I love the Bama wallet. I feel like we're bonded by a love of the Tide. That's so corny, but whatever.
