Project ideas:

- ornaments (a given)

- garland
- small decor like door pulls, pillows, plaques (sp?)
- wine glass markers
- small snowflake mobiles
- table ware like place mats or hot pads
- decorated coffee mugs
- hot pads/coasters filled with "Christmas" scents, so when something warm is put on them, they smell nice? (cinnamon, etc.)
- little sachets filled with Christmas scents
- small picture frames with Christmas 2010 on it
- for pets - holiday paraphernalia (a Christmas collar or bandana for a dog, a little catnip filled Christmas tree for a cat)
- Christmas jewelry (a pair of earrings, perhaps?)
- napkin rings
- small origami gift boxes (The ones that I saw were the size of a jewelry gift box for earrings. Cute as a button!)
- simple holiday cards for sending to friends and family
- small holiday recipe organizer
- cute little stocking stuffers like lip balm cozies, Ipod covers, needle books, book marks

Argh!  I want to sign up but I've used all my swap space.

Should get feedback this week for one of them though (three of my packages are posted) and then hopefully I can get my name down.

Toublet damn you and your tempting ways! I've started on Christmas presents this week, and it would be nice to have a few ornaments, cards, or something else that I can't do to change up the sewing and crocheting projects that my family is going to get from me this year!
Going to have to see if I get a free spot before this closes, just waiting for post to get to Canada already in a few swaps.
