    I have very little for gifts this year and it wont reach further than my kids so for the rest of my family I am making things. For my son and my cousins son I am making the cute crayon roll ups I have seen on Etsy. For the rest I am making several types of jar recipes, bake biscotti and cookies and if time allows, handmade aprons and putting it all in a nice basket. My sewing machine is down so its hand stitching for those but I dont mind and Im pretty quick. So what gifts are you making this year.

    I probably won't do any of the crafty gifts this year.
    I'll just do the fudge, the peanut brittle and try out this new recipe I found for heavenly hash candy.

    I'm knitting scarves for the kids, and for the adults I'm taking nice pillowcases (not the 200 count but more like 600 or 800) and using embroidery to "cutomize" it. I also plan on making some soaps and crocheting chenile wash-cloths for homemade bathbaskets.

    I gleaned hazelnuts(filberts) and my dad had a friend dry them so I have a good 60 lbs to crack and give away. I am planning to make some jewelry from my bead kits, and spend time having the best of times with my family and friends.
    No black fridays or other rubbish. My husband just went back to work after 3 months off so we are fortunate to have a roof over our heads and get our mortgage amended to help us by. We have been doing Christmas ornament exchanges for the last few years and that has been a very enjoyable. Probably make them this year.
