Older sister- Tardis afghan (it's worth noting however that I've been working on this for the past three years and it's still not done, so we'll see if she actually gets it this year or not Tongue)
Younger sister- Pocahontas slippers
Dragonfly shawl
Dad- Peppermint oreo truffles (maybe)
Nana- ??
Papa- ??
Grandma- Crocheted pot holders
Grandpa- Crocheted hat and scarf
Aunt- Crocheted wire earrings

I am sooooo far behind on my winter crafting.

I usually make a mass Christmas ornament - this year it may be a stamped resin clay one, not fixed on an idea yet.

I also do a food gift, and when I am on vacation, I probably will be making jars of pepper jelly again - that was popular.  Maybe some BBQ sauce or something.

For MIL, I wanted to do an embroidered runner for her table as well as some napkins.  Have the materials, just not the motivation.

For a friend's mom, the embroidered runner, without the napkins

For SIL, she saw a viking knit bracelet of mine she liked, so I may make one for her and her daughter, in a bronze wire, caps, and charm, if I can find the bronze wire.

For the same niece, she is very active in a church and I found a cross frame that I will decorate for her.

That is all I have planned so far.

For myself, I have been wanting to make a recycled tin advent calender to put on the fridge - I should get on that!

UGH BLAH! I don't know what I'm doing for ANYBODY! I'm running out of things to make every year.

R:I made a santa's drawers so I'm making cupcakes for the nice drawer, but idk what to make for the naughty drawer? I also knitted a hat
G:No idea, I asked her what she wants and she doesn't know either.
N:I was gonna get her this book she wanted and make her like a reading in a jar. I might still do that just without the book since she bought it for herself already

Aunt: I'm making her a amigurumi monkey since she loves monkeys. Almost done. I might also make her a scarf, depending if I can finish it.
Mom: I never know what to make her, our home is already really cluttered so I usually buy her stuff she can use so I might just do that
Grandma: No Idea! help?
Godmom: Also don't know. I was going to crochet her something, but the monkey is making me tired of crocheting. She loves anything that's really cute and crafted.

I'll also be making cards and giftcard/money holders for my mom to send and give people

Nothing set in stone yet, I just came here to lurk for ideas although I don't have many to make for this year.

« Reply #17 on: October 06, 2013 06:19:04 PM »

Edited: I've come up with a couple ideas, though not completely done.

SIL: She's the easy one.  She loves retro stuff and pink.  In the past I've made her a sleep mask and an apron.  If I can't think of anything else, I can give her stationary.

BIL(SIL's husband):  I don't think I know him well enough to craft something he'd like, so I'm buying him a movie.

Grandmother-in-law:  Wine markers.  I still have the wire for these from the last set I made someone years ago.  I just need to find my beads and make some sort of backing to put them on.

My annoying FIL is my husband's problem!  Tongue

I had a great idea for what to do for my sister-in-law, but I'll have to do it next year so I'll have time.  I got a whole bunch of old patterns of my mother-in-law's when she passed away, and SIL loves vintage but doesn't really sew.  I thought I could make her one of the dress patterns, and that way it would be both something from me and something from her mom too.
