Sharing the Holidays

Hi friends.
I've been looking over some books and websites this morning, and I've gotten some lovely ideas for the coming busy and sparkly season.
I think we'll be making many of our gifts this year (a rather large fete, as we are not exactly "Step into my Enchanting Etsy Shop" people at my house. We try, but....), and I have begun collecting ideas and getting ready.

Here's what I'm thinking:

I'll of course share my favorite ideas, as always, but I would really appreciate it if you'd share yours, too. You don't have to post directions or anything -- even if you could leave a comment saying "We did something cool today, make sure to check out today's post!"

I'm hoping this way we can share ideas, and I can keep everything in one spot!

It's pure selfishness - I'll see something beautiful that I think someone I know will love, then I'll forget where I saw it, and won't be able to find it again.
This way, I can have everything under one category, including the comments.

Anybody interested?

Here are some things I'm up to...

The Crafty Crow http://belladia.typepad.com/crafty_crow/ has links to lots of ways to craft some Thanksgiving turkeys - I'm probably going to do the Feathers Turkey and the Turkey felt board activity.

If you sew and want tons of project instructions, Sew Mama Sew is doing their "Handmade Holidays" again through November. Every day they have several tutorials, mostly for simple projects. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=615 If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you'll see links to all of the projects posted so far.

Here's a link to last year's projects - I tend to think they're a little better than the ones being posted this year, but maybe that's just me. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=291

PS - I hope this was an ok post to put all this stuff on...

MP - Great! I look forward to your ideas!

Steph - I don't car which post they're linked to - any of the posts in the "Sharing the Holidays" category will do, then they'll be easy to find!
I haven't checked out the links yet (smile - got crafting going on today) but I definitely will!
