the MS packaging of those spices is great!  i bookmarked these felted-ball acorns and felted-sweater oak leaves the other day--they might work for packaging, too!

Love those oak leaves oneredboot!

Hi Crusaders - I'm officially down and out with my first cold of the year. I have been working on gifts though, and I wanted to share. I'm going to link to a blog post that I just did (sorry for the external link) because my head is too fuzzy to fight with Craftster to upload pics:

Let me know what you think, and let me know what all of you are working on! xoxo

This is my first craftster post. It's quite scary! Everyone is so talented and I've been sitting here going through this thread writing down ideas for Christmas gifts. I think I'm a little late to hand make everything, but would like to make a few things - stocking fillers and personalised ornaments for people to take away for their trees etc and can't wait to start taking part in this!!

I am not an experienced craftster, but have made handmade cards and small sewing projects before. I've just ordered in some crafting supplies and cannot wait to be able to join in here! I'm on maternity and have 7 weeks before baby comes, so plan on putting the time to good use. My sewing machine is out and I'm going to do a little bit of maintenance this afternoon to get it up and running again.

Cider sachets for everyone and Beatles ornaments for my sis and step-mum are top of my list!! An amazing idea!!!

I'm already excited about getting ready for next year - I'll be trying to make LOTS more!

Welcome crafty_cow, and gorgeous embroidery ineedart! I love that "B" - so festive!

I'm still in the throws of this cold thing, my nose is so red, maybe I should do a Rudolph photo shoot to prep for next year's thread? (Only half kidding!) Good thing is though, being confined to bed means I'm getting some holiday knitting done. Pictures soon!

get well soon stoliedina!!!

also the embroidery is incredible, recipients are very lucky. This thread is so inspiring, thank you everybody!!

I am away from home with limited craft materials but am communicating with my little sister for christmas tree decorations... as the more artistic one she is in charge of the whole shebang but I am currently working on seven-origami-swans-a-swimming for her theme of birds. do decorations count as christmas crafting? I am feeling a little lost without access to a sewing machine, origami is as far as I get at the moment...

Thanks everyone. I have been really into embroidery lately. Its sort of instant gratification which is what I need with three little kids. Stoliedina, feel better!!!
