I'm thinking about making chocolates and cholateboxes to put them in for some people. this is easy and you can make allot in ones.

further on I want to make this year a theawallets for a friend, plushie for the dog, key rings, christmas decoration and don't think I will have any time left to make anything else.

One year I did Christmas mugs with candy and cookies inside for everyone. My mom used to make a new Christmas ornament each year--we have a large family so she'd make like.... forty of the same ornament, date it with the year, and give one to each sub-family within the family. This went on for years, became a lovely tradition, and the rest of the family misses it these days. (Idk why she stopped.)

This year I'm not sure what to do, because suddenly I have to make Christmas happen for Shlomi and me, for his Jewish parents, and possibly his Jewish grampa, brother, and sister-in-law.... and I'm broke and have never been in charge of an entire family's Christmas before. xD

Ahh.. new traditions beginning.... :-P

These a standing joke about coffee and Seattle among the family so I'm also making cup sleeves.

I make Christmas ornaments every year for everyone. So far this year I've made some like the last featured project, Pleated Paper Flowers, I think. They turned out really nice. Last year I cut stars out of old jeans and then put scraps of ribbon and glitter and sequins and stuff on them.
