those are awesome ideas! i love the idea of making a magnet that says "real men wear aprons." that would be perfect to put in my husband's stocking, since he's such an awesome cook.

I'm thinking about making some flavored vodkas and liquers. Does anyone know where I can get some bottles?

Also, that no-knead bread looks great.

I will be baking cookie bouquets and truffles too!

i saw nice bottles of a decent size at ikea last week

for christmas this year i'm making
a Tom Baker Dr Who Scarf
Slippers (3 pairs min)
Scarves (non Dr Who, 2 min)
Little red and white socks/stockings for the christmas trees
amigurumi toys (2 min)
that's it for the moment, though the numbers are liable to go up, and i may think of something else to make

I'm in full holiday crafting mode!  Grin here's my list:

Sam (boyfriend): tuque already finished, lovely black alpaca
                       I need some more small crafted things
                       balancing dinosaurs?  some kind of small stuffy?
                       Salt dough ornaments/figurines

Sara (sister): Thrummed mittens, nearly done.  My own pattern which I want
to submit to Knitty, so I can't post pictures, sorry!
                    Salt dough ornaments? This is her first Christmas in her appartment, so she needs decorations.

Lloyd (sister's boyfriend): floppy disc wreath?  He's a film maker/photographer and computer geek.  I also happen to have 50 or so old floppy discs kicking around...

Mom: thrummed mittens, she wants them early, though, so she can have warm hands while walking to work.  I'm thinking of getting her The Joy of Cooking for an under the tree gift.

Dad: slippers, probably knit and felted
       Something else?  He's retired, so home all the time and often bored...  Loves working with his hands (carpentry, excetera) starting to cook more often.

Jo (Brother): ?? a tuque? Socks?  Last year my sister and I made him a quilt and he loved it, so I don't know how to follow that.  What do you make an 18 year old future millwright who prides himself in his masculinity?

Charnelle (best girl friend): Lion slippers, I'm excited for these.

Sam's parents: crocheted lace star ornaments.  They have crocheted snowflakes, along with many other hand made ornaments on their tree, so I'm making them gold stars.  Possibly some salt dough ornaments too...

Jamais sans mes ciseaux.

Michael's has some cute bottles usually, if you have one near you, or maybe check their website. Maybe AC Moore too.

Thanks to everyone who posted ideas with links....I've gone through just about all of them looking for projects!

Wow amnesia! Those hats look wonderful. Did you use a pattern/book or are you just an unholy uber-milliner??! Cheesy

My brother loves hats a a funky fedora would be great for him.

My boyfriend and I are having a bit of a DIY Christmas this year, and it happens to be our first Christmas together because he happens to live in Australia, and I happen to live in Florida, so here are some of the ideas I've had.

things I've done so far
A little picture frame w/a picture of me in it
Hand painted pencils I used nail polish for the pencils
Bookmarks, a muffin shaped one made out of card stock, a monster one card stock, 2 ribboned bookmarks (strands of ribbon tied together with charms attached to the ends)
Love coupons
A wire beaded ornament
Bass tab things from songs from Donnie Darko(printed off the internet)
A mini notebook with the front and back covers collaged a bit

things to still finish
Embroidered pillowcases and hand towels for the bathroom
Boxers with funny iron on transfers on them (muffinator, muffin man, quote from fightclub)
A mini scrapbooked cookbook
A little scrapbooked calendar with art from his favorite artists
A jar with 60 loving thoughts from me for him to read at night when I'm away
I'm stitching together a quilted scarf
I think I'll make a stuffed thing of some kind
An altered journal for learning French because we are going to learn French together
Toaster Pastry ipod holder, I'm going to make one for my younger sister as well.

So yeah that's what I will be working on for the next month.

Heyy everyone!

This is my first time planning to do a crafted Christmas. I know it's kind of late to start but I already have a lot of ideas. I just don't want to stress myself out too much because I have a lot of people to craft for.

For my cousin and uncle (the computer geeks)-Floppy disk perler bead coasters.
For my best guy friend-an inkjet print T shirt with one of our inside jokes on it.
For my favorite female cousin-a collage with pictures of us from the past 16 yrs.
For most of the men in the family-etched glasses
For some of the women in the family and some female teachers-soap/lotion sets

I'll probably post more ideas later on...if you have any suggestions, here's who I still need to find ideas for:
-My cousin's boyfriend-he's into baseball and having fun
-My mom-I want to make something really nice for her, I'm just not sure what.
-My brother-he's 13 and is really into video games (Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Guitar Hero.)
-My dad-probably will be getting etched glasses, but I want to get him something else to go with it.
