I realized I have quite a few Christmas gift projects underway. I will probably not get all these finished but we'll see what happens.

Handprint doodle framed artwork (12x30) - this is going to be a gift for my sister and her husband but I ordered the frame & matboard on eBay and can't even start till it gets here.
Crocheted doll blanket for my niece - one row to go & edging. I've been putzing wiith this since January; I better get it done before she grows out of dolls.
Stenciled burlap covered pin boards for my nieces & nephews (5)
Decorated whiteboards with matching glass magnets (from Lei's tutorial) - I will at least make 2 of these, maybe one more for my mom
Tea cozies - I started making a few of these last year and never finished them - maybe this year!
Calendars - using Brandy's 11x17 ScrapSimple Blenders templates
Personalized set of weekly planner sheets using SG Layout Templates In Review - I will get a batch printed for her at Kinkos.
I would like to make some coaster sets too but that's at the bottom of my list.

Would love to hear what everyone else is working on!

I'm working on a 12 Days of Christmas cross-stitch ornament set. I've been working on it off and on since August and just finished 10 Lords a Leaping. Hopefully I can finish these last two quickly and get them on the tree before Christmas! I may be nuts because I want to do another set for my brother once I finish the first.

Scrapbooking-wise, I'm going to do a mini album of my favorite Christmas memories this year.

I've spent most of my free time in November putting together a book of my son's first year. It is just photographs, no scrapbooking, but has taken a long time to sort through all the pictures.

I'm now about to start designing two scrapbook posters for my sister and sister in law as new house gifts. My sister moved in June but it wasn't the time for gifts, my sil moved in last week. I hope we will all be together for Christmas so I'm planning on putting them under the tree

I'm hoping I'll find some simple things my 4 yo daughter can make to give as presents as well. I'll have to start searching Pinterest.

I'm making 3 calendars from Brandy's template also. They turned out beautifully and I just need to add covers and binding.
I just finished 2 albums for my daughters with the activities of their families throughout the year (about 60 pages each).
I'm finishing up three doll afghans for my granddaughters.
I need to finish the edging on a baby afghan for my son and his wife who's 1st baby is due on Wednesday.
I just finished making gift labels for my Christmas presents before I checked in here.
I need to make my Christmas cards which I haven't even started.
I am making doll clothes for my granddaughters American Girl dolls and Barbie dolls.
I keep coming up with other ideas but I'm pretty confident that I can get the above projects done and then I want to have some time to enjoy the season with church and family activities.
It's nice to see that I'm not the only one who is still not finished.

I've finished my cards and calendars, which I'm really happy with.

I'm working on a wall art/scrapbook page for my MIL featuring the kids, I hope I get it done in time.

I have my Christmas cards done - just need to address and send them!

Calendars are still in the works!

I'm also working on a lapbook for my Grand-Niece and Nephew, I was moving right along until I ran out of scor-tape and had to order on-line (because neither our local JoAnn's or A. C. Moore has it), so I kind of lost my momentum on that project BUT I hope to get that finished this week.

OH yes AND I have to get at least 1 Cookie Swap Recipe finished and sent to April --- definitely don't want to miss out on that!

I'm really enjoying reading about what everyone is working on!

Let's see....

My calendars are finished and back from the printers.
My meanering book from Lei's tutorial is done for my grandfather (need to post a pic of that still).
I have two hybrid albums for my niece and nephew partly done.
Hybrid atc's are done.
Christmas cards are designed, just need to print and address.
"Dress" hand towels are bought, but need to make the dress part. They are kitchen towels, but the top part of the towel looks like a dress.
I have two more hybrid projects I would like to try before Christmas, but not sure it will happen.

I feel better writing it all down now and seeing that I have accomplished something!

sounds like a great excuse to drink soda. Do you cut the cans up or is it built from whole ones?

So....Y'all are making me feel like a MAJOR under achiever this year!!! Not that I ALWAYS make tons of things, but with the move, and business being busy (and now I'm sick...) I don't even have my Christmas list made out! AGHHHHHH!!

So...you ladies should post photos in the gallery and link them here...so we can see your handy work! :)

I WILL make the cookie swap...it's a tradition now and I LOVE it!!

I have completed an Christmas Meander book to go with a hand-knit scarf for my "secret sister" at church.
One matchbook style mini-book is finished and the second one is close!
Have another scarf on the knitting needles - not sure it will get done, but I'm pushing it!
Working on ornaments ....
Designed candle wraps, purchased candles ... now to put the two together!
I have a free day Friday so I'm hoping to decorate the house!

I am doing photo ornaments again. I do them every year for a group of friends and family. It started out that I did 2-3 a year and now I'm up to about 20 - 25.
I just sent the e-mail out requesting their most recent photos so I can (hopefully) get them done early! Of course, I say that every year, and every year I wind up doing them in a panic the night before Christmas!
