Crafts {Day 1 of 3}

 Okay, so inspired by Libby's post. I'm making my 'very own' craft post. She linked to two wonderful websites; made & Ruffles and stuff. Two websites that I am now - happily - following.
 A fair few of those things require sewing machines and being able to sew well. I tend not to think of piercing my finger everytime I try to sew being able to sew well. So, I went on a craft blog hunt and found Martha Stewart's website. She appears to be famous. Anyway, I'm now thinking about Christmas presents.
 When I was little, I would just draw a picture for my family. I distinctly remember drawing a Christmas tree on green paper, cutting it out and putting it in a what, cracker box? and giving it to my dad.
 Though, that was cute and for the past two-three years I've been buying presents. I've always loved art and this year am restorting back to 'my old ways' by making something for each person instead.
 Not just one big thing though. A little stocking filled with nice things!
  • I would buy a plain stocking and decorate it {if possible}
  • Something unique and personal for each family member
  • A few of my 'famous' flap-jacks
  • A well thought out card
  • A few sweets!
That's probably enough, seeing as they get to keep the stocking. If I can't find any near-plain stockings I'll have to make some if I have time! If I don't though, I'll just wrap things up.

All of the websites have great craft ideas!

What do you think of my idea?

Also, this will be a three day thing for the last three days of my mid-term, even though it isn't themed that way :) ~Maeve

The things that you plan on making sound cool to me. You should do a homemade christmas series on your blog. That would be neat! :-)

I am new to your blog and following you. I would love if you stopped by my blog and followed me.

LOL, your Martha Stewart comment pretty much cracked me up. Yeah, she's really well-known in the US. she has her own TV show and all kinds of stuff.
