I was inspired by this post by leaguegirl:

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Crafted Gifts--purse-necklace-pouches-scarf-food-- LOTS O PICS on: December 25, 2006 02:22:00 PM
Thanks guys. The turtle bites are the easiest thing in the world to make. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a sheet with foil. Stack a rolo candy and pecan on top of a pretzel. Put in the oven for 3 or 4 minutes. Take out and smoosh the pecan on to the melted candy. Yum Yum. The hardest part is unwrapping all those rolos. But I did have to make about two hundred of them.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Crafted Gifts--purse-necklace-pouches-scarf-food-- (complete w/ photos) on: December 25, 2006 07:09:35 AM
First up is a glass marble necklace set. I made three sets for different friends. I made up the glass marble pendants, and thought to myself, I need a pretty way to package them up. I stumbled upon neat little unfinished wood boxes at the craft store, and thought hey, those would be just right. So I decoupaged the sliding top with pretty paper and painted the rest. I then made a removeable board to hold/display the pendants. The top two photos are of the same finished set and the bottom is the box for the next set I made. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out.

Next up are cute little 15 minute coin pouches. Super easy and sized just right for coins or cards.

Now for some tacky kitchy goodness. A pom pom and felt scarf.

A pretty hobo bag made from runnermom100863's tute here on Craftster. I lucked up on finding the fabrics on two different occasions from the remnant bin at the fabric store.

And now for the food. Yum

Turtle bites

And Peppermint Bark

Sorry if the post is too big. Since today is Christmas, most of these have been given away already, and were very well received. It makes it all worth it! Merry Christmas! Cheesy

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: paper stars - stellated happiness [pix] TRY#2 -update p.9, p.11 on: November 28, 2006 10:25:28 AM
and which I drew my designs on top of.

In my opinion, YOUR designs are what make these stars so fantastic. I could totally see you being a very successfull textile/fabric designer. I am obsessed with your designs on the third star down on page 11. I would just about kill to have that as wallpaper. As you have said earlier, anyone can make these stars, they are easy (your words, Wink I have not been able to do it yet). But I think that it is, your drawings and designs that has turned this into a thirteen page thread. They are amazing. Can't wait to see more.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice/Tips for newbies to the sewing world? on: November 27, 2006 04:53:56 AM
My tip would be to use good thread. I have yelled many dirty words because of cheap thread. It breaks. Often.  When I first started sewing, I thought thread was thread, and would use those multi-color jumbo packs from the dollar store. I quickly learned my lesson.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that princessandthebead also included a box of herbal green tea (I need to really relax after work in retail this time of year) and everything was wrapped beautifully!

Oh, my goodness, that is so incredibally cute!  I love the sheep pins too!

I told my hubs that I may have to part with one of the pins, and include it, with his mom's pincushion for Christmas. She loves sheep too. Man, there a bunch of sheep lovin' folk out there. Cheesy
