Crashing this thread (which I have stalked religiously, you ladies are delightfully inspirational!) to ask if anyone has any ideas/sites/templates for cute homemade gift tags? I'm making some food items for xmas this year and want to be able to customize some cute tags with more than just a "To" and "From" field, but am having a bit of trouble finding something suitable.

 

I do have Photoshop so I can use .psd templates, just haven't found any pre-made tags big enough to print cooking/serving instructions on! =)

I just found these wood type printables on Pinterest yesterday. They're free, and she's designed a whole gift wrapping set, including food gift labels and recipe cards.

So I was ordering prints from Wallgreens to make a collage  and realized I could actually make the collage on line and have the whole thing printed as one picture!Who knew?Ok,everyone but me probably.HA!HA!So excited that all I have to do now is pick it up and decorate a frame!

 

How is everyone doing?

 

I decided to make a bunch of t-shirts for my husband.Off to get them in the wash so I can start to decorate them...

rere- I did a collage online through Walmart. It was an 8x10 for like 2.50. Figured it was easier (and cheaper) to do it that way.

 

Its bright and sunny outside today.. I actually had to double check the calender because it doesn't look like December here. Its even in the 80s, we were debating going to a water park today since it hasn't been cold enough for them to close. I need some Christmas weather! It might motivate me to work on gifts!

How do you all deal with wrapping gifts? Part of me wants just to get it done but the other part remembers spending Christmas eve night helping my mom wrap gifts (well  other than ours, when it was turn to wrap ours we went out to the living room with Dad to wrap Mom's gifts). I use to LOVE that, spending time as a family, drinking hot cocoa, listening to music and wrapping gifts. We always talk about what we got who and how we thought they would use it.. I would love to do that for my girls but with three of them and no other adult it seems a little daunting.

Oki,

 

Uhg.I had no motivation either yesterday.

 

Wrapping with 3 small kids sounds hard.Maybe that's a tradition to start when they are old enough to actually help wrap.I usually just wrap a little at a time but reading your description of what your family did made me think twice about it.It sounded so sweet.

 

I can't wait to go pick up our collage.My daughter and I had a good time putting it together.I hope it comes out nice.

 

 

 

 

My husband got home last night and my daughter is currently trying to talk him into going to get a tree so I may not get anything made today.Oh well.

Okimom- you and me both. I'm doing nothing. The calendars and the orange wreath seem to be the end all of Xmas crafting for me this year. Just no motivation. Which kinda bums me out b/c I had about 10 diff. ornaments I was super excited to make this year. I've really gotten into that the past few years. But nope, don't even care to bust out the paint or anything else required.

 

Guess that isn't helping is it? shrug.gif

I've got zero motivation as well, but this week is it for me. I found out yesterday my job needs me to come back from maternity leave a week early... so it's now or never this week for the Christmas crafting. It must be done by Sunday! I can do it, but I'll have to work on stuff every single day...

Ok, So I sat down again with a list of everything I need to get done between now and the end of January (yea, I went that far.. I have a birthday in Jan and one in Feb to make things for..) then seperated it into days so now I know what I need to get done and when it needs to get done. I made sure it was reasonable as well (not going to be able to knit a sweater in a day, just doesn't happen unless you are a knitting speedster). Im better at getting things done if I have a list telling me what to do, if I don't then I flounder around doing nothing.. Ok, sometimes with a list I flounder around doing nothing whistling.gif

 

So tomorrow I need to:

finish cutting out the quillow tops I started today (already have the fabric preped and one almost all the way cut out)

sew the tops

finish cutting out the quillow bottoms and sew the bottoms

finish sweater front

sew front to back of sweater.. remember why i hate seaming when Im knitting 2whistle.gif

Taggie Monster

Taggie giraffe

 

I preped all the fabric for the quillows today, Ive realized that an hour of prep time saves several hours of project time. I lose track of where I am if I have to stop to prep stuff and then it takes a while to figure out what I was doing. I also put together two coloring books for the kids and pulled out the pillowcase I started for SIL a while ago that I haven't finished yet.

I figure for wrapping Ill do all their stuff ahead of time and have them help with the gifts for inlaws/family. My oldest loves to help wrap and my middle is actually pretty good about not getting into trouble. Ill just have to do it during nap time so the baby doesn't "help".

 

Oh and you all aren't any help when it comes to motivation.. Although its comforting in a way to know that its not only me that has motivation problems.

Just got done sewing the taggie giraffe and taggie monster. When I get a chance Ill upload pictures. The monster is really cute but Im not so sure about the giraffe. DS likes it though, he took off with it when I put it down for a second and I had to distract him to get it back. Silly boy..

 

Now Im going to go work on the sweater front.

I'm almost done with the quilt! It took me a half hour just now to pin the front, back and batting together and I'm going to sew it up in a bit here! The finishing touch will be topstitching, which I hope to complete today as well, barring any disasters. Still on today's agenda - cut felt for the baby booties and fabric pieces for the embroidered name plaque. My original crafting plan is just out the window... I've got to get everything done by Sunday now (more or less) so I'm just trying to slam things in. After the two things today, I've got to work on my nieces gifts... but those should hopefully be quick. Hopefully.

This sweater is kicking my butt! Its not even that hard to do its just I have some sort of mental block about it (I get like this with projects when I have other projects Id rather be doing but I know I have to get the one I don't really want to work on done first).. The person Im test knitting it for is great but she really needs photos of the finish project by Monday so Id like to get it done by Friday to give me a chance to get my child to actually put it on so I can take a picture (easier said than done with my child). Im going to just do the fronts and backs of the quillows when I quilt them. Im using a solid piece of fabric with a boarder so its not like I have to cut 100 squares or any craziness like that..

 

So tonight I am finishing that sweater front then sewing it to the back.. Tomorrow Im (hopefully) going to be working on:

 

Quilting 1 Quillow (included in this is finishing the fronts and backs I have sitting in pieces around the kitchen)

make 1 pocket and attach to quillow

cut out another quillow top

cut out another quillow bottom

sew quillow top

sew quillow bottom

Finish 1 sweater sleeve

cut out crayon rolls.

 

If I have time I need to run to the store and get some cars so I can measure for the car pockets for the car mat.. Umm, can I use car one more time in that sentence.. whistling.gif

That's way better than anything I'm working on!!

 

Yay for progress Ladies!

 

I finished painting  a frame for the photo collage and got it all matted and put together,finished up another t-shirt for my husband and decided what to make my sweet gal(she really wants one of those owl pillows that are all over the place)!Hopefully I can get that done Sunday while she is with my mom.

 

Also my daughter finally got busy!She just made a bunch of little notebooks for some aunties and cousins and she's working on her 3rd potholder.

 

 

Any ideas for something to put under the tree in the doll house?I guess I'll just have a look around the craft store.I really need to get over there by myself.

I feel like I've made some good progress. I cut the pattern pieces and fabric for the baby booties, and read through the instructions - I've never made footwear or anything that requires weird folds and turns, so this will be a new experience for me. I think I understand the directions well enough though, so hopefully I can pull them off. I'm going to do them half machine stitched and half hand sewn, depending upon the part of the bootie. 

 

I also cut the pieces for the name plaque, and have three of the letters of my son's name embroidered. I also dug out a dark wood picture frame that I'm repurposing for it. The one that inspired me to do it in the first place uses an embroidery hoop as the frame, which is cute, but I like the more finished look of the frame in this case. 

 

As for the quilt, it's basically done! I was having a hard time deciding whether to do decorative topstitching or just tacks on it, so I decided to sleep on the decision last night. I've decided to put in the extra effort and do the topstitching, so I really get the look I'm going for. It's his first quilt, so I just want it to be super special. So today I'll do up the topstitching. 

 

I anticipate finishing the booties, the plaque and the quilt today. And I may even cut the fabric pieces for my niece's apron, her matching doll apron, and for my other niece, the towel tote bag and washcloth puppet. I plan to sew those tomorrow. 

 

And then I've got to mix up some bathtub paint (for the towel bag/puppet gift), do six mason jar soy candles, a couple of handprint ornaments with my son, order some photos online (need to get to that today actually, so they get here on time), and for my husband - glass etch a couple of glasses with a Viking helmet, after I freehand draw it as a masking tape stencil (for a gift with his favorite whiskey). 

 

God I hope that's everything... keep going everyone! We're so close!

Kitchen- booties aren't as hard as they seem! I was rather intimidated by them at first but they turned out to be SOOO easy and so darn cute they are worth the effort!

 

I just finished painting peg dolls for the girls doll houses. I started on the car mat and then realized that I don't have green, brown or dark blue felt (I need it for the houses/lake/trees) so it has to hibernate until tomorrow when I can make it to the craft store (or Walmart). I don't have the felt to do the finger puppets either, I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered the felt I did but none of it is in the right colors. Or it could be they sent me the wrong felt, I can't find the receipt to check it and its not such a big thing. I always have a need for felt. I found some fabric squares I had planned on using for the peg dolls but they didn't work so I pieced them together and I'm making mug rugs for the children. I sewed the tops and cut out the bottoms already so now all I have to do is cut batting, sew/turn/topstitch, quilt and add on the place for the cup to sit. I have another quillow cut out, I'm going to hopefully get it pieced together today so I can sew/topstitch/quilit it tomorrow. I need to cut out the pocket for it and sew that as well. I also did 6 rows on the sweater.

Well here's where I'm at:

 

Teacup Candles: still looking for more nice+cheap teacups and saucers. I have almost enough to get by but am not happy with most of the teacups, they're just little glass things with no saucers. I have the soy wax, wicks, color, and eo chai blend. I guess I can make what I have already and save some scent and color for any more. I have enough extra wax for other things, maybe jar candles.

 

Sweaters: DH's done though one yarn join needs a touch up, weave in messed up in washing. DS2's hoodie is done, DS1's cardigan needs sleeves and a yoke still.

Hats: Have the yarn and patterns now for balaclava's for my boys.

Misc knitting: wanted my make mom a shrug but never got to the store across town with the bamboo-silk yarn I wanted, it might still happen last minute. I want to make legwarmers for my friend, she wants soft acrylic, which I have.

 

Sewing: Jeweled satin crowns almost done for my boys, nice fabric pouch for my MIL about done, hooded cloak for DS1 fabric is ready. I'm about to make up a few wrapping bags later today, couldn't resist some Christmas fabric I saw.

 

Baking and Candies: For DH's work I want to make an assortment of cookies, 4-6 dozen I guess... I think oatmeal cranberry, gingerbread men, and pecan sandies. Also making peppermint bark and 3 kinds of chocolate truffles for us and extended family (orange, hazelnut, plain). DS1 wants us to make candy cane shaped soft pretzels, we'll try that at home this week then bring a big batch to church for the party on the 23rd with some good mustard.

The baby booties and the embroidered name plaque are all done. I also have the pieces for both aprons cut out and ready to go. I still need to topstitch the quilt - we overslept a bit today so I didn't have time to work on it this morning. By the time I got to a point where I could work on it, dusk was pretty much here so I missed have good daylight to sew by. I don't have a task light at my sewing desk, so it makes sewing in the evenings rough. Maybe I should've put a good task light on my own wishlist this year...
