I'm not home right now, so I can't see the things I have piled there waiting for me to do them. So this is just the list off the very top of my head. But I think I have enough to start off!
3. Perry the Platypus car air freshener for sister

I wish. I'm winging it! I think it'll basically be a sachet with dried lavender (We have a ton of the stuff because we went to the lavender farm in the summer) with Perry stenciled on.

Oh my, do you have a link for this? I am very intrigued.

ha ha "selfish" crafting?  hey, we deserve to craft for ourselves Cheesy

So true! I feel like I'm always crafting for someone else. I started working on my Kindle cover, and it occurred to me that this may very well be the first thing I've made for myself in a VERY long time! Grin

Yeah...I normally don't craft for myself so I do feel a tad selfish but I know I deserve to craft for myself so I plan on making it a habit in 2012.  Cheesy
