Here is my list for the next while

October:

2 stuffed owls for my friend's little ones  (only have to stuff them)

November:

Card Set for Grandma

It's a small list but I think it will be manageable.

I found a stash of decorative bags for baked goods (the size of a brown paper lunch bag) that I'd bought for pennies after Christmas last year! Half red, half white with snowflakes. 'They'll come in handy.
And I'm *still* waiting for my family to draw names. My mom swears it'll happen today.
I've been busily making things for a possible craft fair, still don;t know if I'm in, or if I can afford it.  They'll go to my etsy otherwise. I haven't made anything for presents yet. Eeep!

Well, one of the names I drew for Christmas is my little sister. Today she told me all about a mirror she saw on pintrist that had the frame covered with old jewelry, and that she wanted to make one, but gave up when she saw old jewelry prices.
Like this one. http://www.flickr.com/photos/georgiapeachez/1700889948/in/set-72157623435452134/  
or maybe this. http://www.flickr.com/photos/georgiapeachez/2222233795/in/photostream/
Cool, right? She also likes the idea of an initial covered the same way. I could buy a wall initial at the craft store. I'm sure I could find a mirror. The only question is having enough to cover either. I like the look of the first mirror best. I was thinking, perhaps cover the back of a nice hand mirror if I could only do a small project. I have strings of pearly beads I can work in, and maybe some fancy buttons could work, too.
Do you all think hot glue or E600 would be the best to attach pieces? Whatever I find, I think I'd paint it first, probably white?
This is an ambitious project, but I like the idea of doing it.
And, looks like I am going to be in an art fair (eep!) at the end of november, so I will be pretty dang busy.
The other name husband and I drew is an older sister of mine. Hee, I'll end up taking care of both presents. Older sis likes geeky things. Their house is surrounded by woods, out in the boonies-very pretty. She and her long term guy have been living together for ages, and just got married a month ago. She rebinds books professionally. And I have no ideas on what to do for her yet. I could do a necklace, if I can subtly find out her favorite colors. I know she likes ones she can just put over her head without fiddling with a clasp. Hmm....I may have an idea for this.
No ideas for the nieces and great nephews yet.
Eep.
No idea for my mom and dad and his mom yet, aside from baking.
Eep again.
My daughter, I've been squirreling little things away for a while now. Years ago, I used a hot pin to poke holes iin an old record album to hold earrings, and she liked it, but broke it shortly thereafter. Maybe I should make another one...she wears more necklaces and pins than earrings now, although she still has a few. Her ears are so darn sensitive. Hmm....

some thrift stores have cabinets with vintage/costume jewellery. Sometimes they don't charge too much for them.
