The holidays are coming up...

Do you make all or some of your gifts and if so, what do you like to give? Do you make your own decorations? As always, got pics? LOL

With 4 girls, a DIL and 2 Mil's, jewelry will be given. LOL I struggle every year to find some kind of craft that I can give to Tom that I can make without him seeing. Obviously, if I do a stained glass project, he will see that since he's always over my shoulder going "Whatcha doin?" and the studio is in the laundry room anyway. LOL Bad planning on my part. I would love to make him something for his office--he works from home 99% of the time. I just don't know what.
I love decorating for the holidays and in about 4 weeks I will put up my village. I takes over an entire room so I have to plan on this...especially since this will most likely be the last year I can do it for a while since we have a couple of grandbabies due in March! (Two different kids, due within 8 days of each other!) I will definitely post some pictures of the village when i figure out where it's going and get it all set up. It takes me about two weeks when I am working and a week when I am not to set everything up. I can't wait!

    I think so. I haven't worked with it much, but it isn't too bad.

    Quoting DaniandTom:

    I've never used those but I have seen some adorable baby printed fleece that I am toying with making blankets for both my soon-to-be grandbabies. (Have 2 coming in March) Is it pretty easy to work with? 

    Quoting LivinDeadGurl:

    I am hoping so. I may have them as gifts for two of them for Christmas and then wait and make the other two for birthday gifts since two have birthday's in February.

    I may just do big no-sew fleece sets for them all though, so it won't take much time if I do that. I am undecided right now.

    Quoting DaniandTom:

    Oh boy! That's a big undertaking with 4 kids!! Will they be Christmas gifts?

    Quoting LivinDeadGurl:

    I usually don't make anything but the food we

    I do plan on making the kids blankets this year and maybe matching pillows. Not sure on what else.
