Hey everyone!  In two short days, I'm heading home for the holidays from college.  I don't get much crafting done when I am here, unless you count sketching, and I'm looking forward to having plenty of creativity time.  Here is my list of 12 crafting or cooking project I hope to do over break.  Many are things I've been wanting to try but haven't had the chance.  If I do one per day, it will be 12 days of Christmas crafting!  Just thought I'd share my plans for fun.  Smiley

1. Dipped Ritz - I have heard of these, but never made them or even seen them.  They sound simple and delicious, and I want to make them with a white chocolate drizzle and sprinkles on top... mmm.
Completed Dec. 11... I ended up making them with a peanut butter-butterscotch topping, and here's what's left of the first batch.  I think my decorating skills will improve with practice.


2. Polystyrene Ornaments - Might make some for gifts if they turn out very nicely.  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206148.0)

3. Pajamas
Completed Dec. 12... I'm wearing my new jammie shorts now!  Oops, my wet hair dripped on them.  Please ignore the spots.

4. Cinnamon Apples - This is an old family recipe that my mom and Grandma make each year for the holidays, and I want to learn.

5. Aprons - I'm hosting a Christmas cookie party, and I'd like to make cute aprons for each of the chefs to wear while baking and decorating.

6. Knit a Scarf - I don't know how to knit, but hopefully a scarf will be pretty simple to figure out.

7. Pillowcases

8. Ice Candles

9. Pumpkin Brownies - Came across the idea here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210281.0) and they sound delicious.
Completed Dec. 8... turned out more like cake, but very yummy.


10. Felted Mittens

11. Gingerbread Men

12. Hoodie

Yay, I want to start right now!  Cheesy

I recommend big needles and thick yarn so you can do it in a day. The thinner needles take a lot longer.

Hmm, thanks for the advice.  What size would you consider 'big' for needles?
