I've been making apple butter and have several jars of that in the freezer (easy crock pot recipe - no actual canning required - although I have done that in years past & made salsa). Also several crocheted afghans and I was thinking about chicken bread dough ornaments for my co-workers. These would be great for a scout troop (speaking from years of experience as a girl scout troop leader!). Ann Clark makes big cookie cutters in the chicken and rooster shape for about 4 dollars a piece --course cookies would be good too!! The ornaments can be painted and shellaced. One year I made lots of co-worker ornaments out of what are called gourd eggs (found them on ebay) painted them, shellaced them and put a teeny eye hook in the top with some super glue to hold it and put a twisted, beaded homeade hook on them --cute! I did some wolfpack & tarheel themed ones too, those went over well. I Have also made what seemed like zillions of those beaded spider ornaments that marymaxim.com sells and printed those "legend of the christmas spider" tales to attach to them --they went over great and people still talk about putting them in their trees every year. Needless to say, I love to craft!!
