    I make the fleece hand tied blankets for my family... They're warm and soft and easy to make.

    I tend to do handmade gifts for my family each year. One year I made dreamcatchers, another year was wreaths. I've made candles, cookie mix jars, jewelry, potpourri jars, and shirts. I'm working on totes this year for people. Hope those can help you some.

    I'm making jewelry this year, for both of DB's sisters and a necklace/braclet/barette set for some of his nieces.



    OH EDIT:


    There's a way you can make really cute jars, for cookies, candy, dog treats...the kinda resemble gumball machines.

    Take a glass "fishbowl, glue to an upside down terracotta pot that you've painted. You can decorate it with paint, decals, rubon transfers look great. You can make a lid with the round bottom some of those pots come with, or a wooden base. A little wood knob glued to the middle to lift it looks cute.

    They're really adorable and easy, kinda hard to picture, I need to post one I've made.
