Unfortunately I’m at work, lol..but only 1/2 day today, but I do have to work tomorrow. Anyway, so I’ve been busy making my christmas gifts this year, and so I wanted to put ALL the gifts I’ve made into 1 entry, so here they all are, my first time knitting, my first time doing etched glass, and my first time using the freezer paper stenciling….what a fun (and hectic) couple of months, haha…

Everyone in my immediate family, and some other family members and friends, got this ornament: Yes I folded the crane and got that thing in there, and glass etched the year on the outside.

coffee mug cozy for my mom, made another for my sister but forgot to take a pic of it:

Beverage cozies for my mom
beverage cozies for mom - fits 20 oz sodas, 16.9 bottles and cans

and fingerless gloves or wrist warmers, whatever you want to call these, for my step-mom…she’s very picky so I hope she likes them! First time doing these as well (hell, I only started learning how to knit end of September haha).



coasters and candy jar for my dad, the decoupage medium was still drying, forgot to get a completed project picture, darn it, haha…

My regular readers KNOW Ian’s a big star wars fan, so I made these:


For my dad from Ian – Ian wanted a coconut tree since we went to Hawaii this past summer.

For my cousin’s husband who also went to Hawaii with the big family vacation (20 of us total), and dad’s family is so big we draw names to exchange gifts.

A couple of onesies for my cousin’s baby girl born in October.


AND that’s ALL! whew, lol.



  1. Wow! Everything turned out very nice. I’m trying to make everything this year as well. It’s Christmas eve now and I have a few more things I have to finish up!
