I'm sorry to hear so many of you are in a funk!  I've had a pretty good crafting month...just nothing *finished* to show for it!  Or, at least nothing Christmas related.  Here's what I've been working on though:

knitted fashion scarf for stepsister
floor quilt for nephew
four seasons wall plaques for my mom

Other than that I've been doing lots of summer sewing for my daughter, in hopes that winter will finally leave, but since they're forecasting 5-8 inches of snow tomorrow, I don't think it's working.   Tongue

I've been in a crafting slump this month.  All I've managed to get done are 25 scrabble tile necklaces.  Would have made more but I ran out of bails.  I ordered the dog tag necklaces on ebay.  They are about 2' each so the recipients can cut and adjust them to the length they desire.  I have a load of friends and cousins with 'tween and teen daughters and I thought these might make cute gifts for them.  Maybe for a few of the girls at work too..

I was thinking about packaging them and I think I'm going to pick up some of those little round tins at the dollar store.  I've found them there before packaged 3 to a pack.. you know, the ones with a clear plastic insert in the lid..

Anyway, I'm hoping that April will bring some inspiration.

woobie - 25 necklaces is SO NOT A SLUMP hahaha!!! If that's a slump, that's the kind of slump I want to be in!!!

I just finished another pair of mini mittens over here. Just have to weave in the ends...slowly pulling out of slumpiness.

Thanks everyone.. ya'll are making me feel better. 

I love the scrabble tiles! Are they easy to do? They are so cool.

The tiles are so easy.. there are several tutorials around (there's probably one on Craftster), but I used the one at ehow. http://www.ehow.com/how_4709064_scrabble-tile-pendant.html  I bought my bails and diamond glaze on etsy and was every pleased with sellers there... but you might want to check ebay too.. unless you are lucky enough to have a well stocked craft store near you.  I don't.
