LOVE this.

Would a tutorial be way too much to ask? I'd love to make this.

Onynxnox, that's perfect! I'm definitely going to do the tin. Thank you so much!

VirgoWolf -
daisyannissa - first thing that comes to mind is a knitting roll. Other than that, I'm afraid I don't know ^^;

Thank you for the idea! If you wouldn't mind though, what exactly is a knitting roll? I haven't heard of that before...

I saw something like this in Martha Stewart's magazine and since her recipes don't usually work out for me, I adapted it and made my own!

They are waffle ice cream cones with chocolate cake baked inside. We decided to go with a white-ish color (added vanilla which makes it slightly yellow) but you could just as easily add in some green or any other food coloring. We finished them off with powdered sugar and sprinkles in the shape of snowflakes.

My 10-year-old sister loved decorating them.

With a 3 1/2 inch Santa!

From above.


These were so much fun to make! Let me know if any of you are interested in seeing the recipe and I'll type it up with my variations, too. They'd also be fantastic with a thin layer of icing and white chocolate chips!

I usually don't plan gifts quite this early because I have so many kids to craft/shop for, who have a tendancy of changing interests very quickly. But I definitely plan early, starting in around August or September- that way I have enough time to get things done without rushing!

Your list looks great!

Well she works alot, she sometimes plays a couple select games (Sudoku, Zuma, etc...), she likes shopping online... She's really old-school, never had a drink, never smoked, never done drugs, 4 letter words gag her, doesn't like to go out or anything, when she's here, she's usually doing bills, working from home (even on her days off, she hears it from us about that), or helping my dad (he has Parkinsons disease). She's handicapped from an accident in her teen years, but likes to refer to herself as handi-capable because she never lets it affect her, says she's just in it for the parking, LOL.

So really she needs nothing, she wants nothing, and she's into nothing LOL. I am at a loss...

What about framing a photo? You could decorate a cheap frame (try Target) and put a picture of you two or just her in the frame.

Sassy bumper stickers? She sounds sassy Wink

You could buy her the full version of one of the games she likes online, or the deluxe version if it's a board game (isn't Zuma online?) and craft a 'gift certificate'.

Maybe to help her work at home if it's on the computer you could make one of those mousepads that is good for your wrist- the kind that has a bumped up section on the end. I don't know if that made any sense, but I'm sure there's a tutorial for that somewhere and it might be a nice practical thing.

Or give her a ball of life!

What do I make for...

My mom! She loves knitting, but hasn't been doing it lately and I'd love to make her something that would encourage her to knit more. It doesn't have to be big, I've already made a couple other presents, just something cute and practical would be fantastic.

Thanks you guys! You're the best!

How lovely! What a wonderful thing for them both to cherish throughout their childhood.

Had it out every year for as long as I can remember...


The mantle has changing lights, and they're all the same color at the same time, they're great!
