Thanks guys!

Those glasses are so cute and fun!  Also, your etching is so nice and neat!
Thanks! I am happy how they turned out. It was my first time etching since the cream is hard to get here and shipping cost more than the cream itself! Finally got a hold of a bottle. I did 3, 5minute sessions of etching on each glass while re-spreading the cream every minute or so. That seemed to do the trick for getting a good, even, and strong etching. Oh, and contact paper is your best friend.

AlishaMisha - I still want to try etching. I will need to put it on my list for next year (again)...

WaggonsWest - super cute runner and pillows!

I am so far behind on my crafting. I am just now getting out my holiday cards  Roll Eyes

Here are a few more that I made:

This one has a lot of shiny around the edges - I really liked how it turned out

This one was one of my favorites and took me the absolute longest  - the shiny white portions are actually a silver glitter pen (this is also the one that my daughter told me that I shouldn't be spending the time since the recipient will glance at it and throw it away - disheartening)

Another one, was a little less happy with it

Here I began to get tired of making cards and went with a much faster card...

And then, I decided I didn't have enough time. For most of the rest, I repurposed old cards by adding random things to premade cards (either drawing on them or adding googly eyes etc)

I have a couple presents that are going to be late, but wanted to share the first step for one of them - painted paper. I will be using these in a project, so you will see them again later (and I really hope that it turns out!)

I have a number of half done presents, but they will probably not be done until January. This is my annual statement: next year I will be done earlier! (I am so impressed with all of you who are done and have done such amazing things!!)

I just finished some blocks for a swap. Here's the link... I'm counting it as 3 projects (not 4) because one set I cheated and had some perfectly sized blocks in my stash from a former craft exchange and I was out of time + they were better than I could do myself at the time. Though I think the wonky blocks should count as a dozen projects as they pained me so much!

So - upon looking at my list of finished projects and started projects, etc...  I have come to the conclusion that if I hadn't had to take 3 months off with wrist surgery, I would have completed 50 projects.  So...  maybe next year.  Smiley  I thought about starting my list tonight but I'm tired and the world is trying to beat me up right now.  Maybe tomorrow in between paper macheing MORE mushroom stems.  Smiley

I've wracked my brain and I figure I am forgetting a few things that I've managed to get made this year. But as for right now at this moment, I stand at 26 finished projects.

Wish I had a working camera still, but that is just not a top level concern at this moment.

Finished it at 11pm (with 15 hours to spare! lol) but it took me until 12:40am to mount the jolly thing. Not having time (or the iron) to iron out the creases makes me sad though.
Can't wait to give it to her this afternoon! The church and the sky swirl are done with metallic embroidery floss, though it may be hard to see. All done with 6 strands held together. 6 strands of metallic was a nightmare, especially since I've never really done any embroidery other than TM patches. The image size is 16" by 12" - though it's not all embroidered! Just the moon, TARDIS, and detail on the trees, church, the silver star near the trees at the bottom (also metallic) and the sky swirl. Since I only started it a few days ago, I'm happy with my efforts.

Oh yeah. and I only had a 3" hoop to hold it while I stitched. Lips sealed
