Oh ehinders--I bet your child was thrilled!  I know I would be! Cheesy

You must repost when you get more done...I think it is fine because children have great imagination!

oh smeddley--you are so lovely!  What a lot of beautiful and fun projects!  I love those bracelets...I had to stop making them...aren't they addicting? Cheesy

I would love to see your hip belt--it is the crochet with the tassels?  I want to make one but don't have a pattern... Sad

Awe, thanks!  And yes, those bracelets are SO addicting.  I have a few more to make (for people who have requested them) and then I'm telling myself I'm going cold turkey.

The pattern I used is a modification of a pattern I got for free on the internet.  I changed up the rows, and made a two-piece variant, as well.  The weird thing is she charges for the pattern now, so I don't know if I can share my version or not.  It's a weird situation.  But it started as the Josephine Hip Scarf.  It works up fairly quickly, unless you follow the actual directions and end up with something enormous - on the first one, I did it exactly as it said and ended up with a giant scarf (But I use it as a shawl, too, so it works out).

Wow!  I am loving everything!!  pac man blanket, spinning wheel, beautiful cards, socks, crowns....just WOW!!

I wanted to share a pic of Lana decorating her sugar cookies this year (I helped make the cookies and if I count each one I'll have made it to 5o!!  LOL!).  The set of piping tools really made it fun and easy!  This time we only made enough to share with Santa and my brother, but next year we'll make a really huge batch and invite her friends to come to decorate them!

I'm loving the play kitchen!  Too cute!

And beautiful socks, indigo!

Yay for cookies!

Alright, here's the last of the stuff I finished up before christmas, though now that I think about it, I didn't take pictures of it all.  Oh well!

Captain America shirt for my dad.  There were so many little pieces that I had to iron in, but it all worked out despite that.  I also applied the paint with a sea sponge this time, not worrying about getting it completely filled in, so that it would like vintagy.

A batman shirt for my dad.  Same dealo with this one, making it vintagy.

And I made 4 sets of these chalkboard wine glasses.  They were super easy and fun to make.  You take blue painters tape and tape up the stem, leaving the base uncovered and then give it three coats of chalkboard spray paint.  I get a set of chalk for each set as well.

Some chocolate, peanut butter, and oreo bark.  I found the recipe for it here on craftster.  Its really really good!

My preggo SIL requested these cookies this year.  I've made them once before, but its been a couple years.  They are vanilla bean pillows.  I don't think I tried them when I made them the first time, but I did this year and oh man are they good!  They have vanilla sugar on the outside.  You cut up a vanilla bean with a couple cups of sugar and let it sit for at least a week.  You can use the sugar of a bunch of different things.  And the vanilla sugar doesn't go bad, either! 

I also made like 10 bottles of vanilla extract, as well.  And jerky, too!  Though I failed to take pictures of those.

Ok, these are probably going to be the last things I post for this year. I've been pretty sick for a week now and I'm lacking in motivation.

My Christmas baking....

Cran-pistachio cookies

Peppermint blossoms

Oreo truffles

Pretzel turtles

Christmas crack

I also made Rocky road fudge but didn't get a pic, and I covered Pringles cans in scrapbook paper to gift everything in.

Last, I made a catnip filled rat for our cat's Christmas gift.

QueenNinjaMonkey "christmas crack" is "chocolate sex biscuit" in my family after my sister declared it  almost better than sex  Grin Grin Grin I made two huge batches on the 24th, by the 26th there was nothing left but crumbs and toothache  Wink Love the re-used Pringle containers too. My low salt diet means I don't have many of those any more, I used to use them as soap moulds.

Smeddley, I love you bd costumes and your bracelets  Grin I have supplies for those but haven't got around to making any yet.
