In my family, all the women over the age of 18 do a Christmas Present Swap. In the swap, instead of trying to think up a unique idea for each person, you come up with a single idea and create a bunch of that one idea using different colors for each rendition. Here's my craft from last year: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=288564

This year my mom decided to join in the crafting mayhem too! She was trying to come up with an idea for this year, and I gave her a link to this board for the to look at. After looking around some of the boards, she found the Christmas Bauble Tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=324730.0) and decided that project was the one she wanted to do. After a lot of planning and a little customizing (we couldn't get the sizes listed in the tutorial, so we had to improvise!) we sat down to make them! A few thousand pins later, they turned out beautifully!

I'm very proud of her. It was a lot of hard work to do all these and have them done for christmas morning, but she was able to do it.
