This year im going to try some petite point lace for my niece but who knows how that'll go.......

This year we are giving his family DVD slideshows of all of their family pics set to music. I temporarily acquired his diseased mother's photo albums and have scanned them into the computer and used software that burns the whole slideshow to be viewed in their dvd players. Anyone interested in doing this, I can tell you it's so easy. There are two easy software programs(PixPlay or ProshowGold, the latter which I recommend) that work well. YOu don't even have to own a dvd burner. The program allows you to use your cd burners and cd/r's and converts them to be played in 94%(in VOD or VCD format) of dvd players. YOu drop in the pics, arrange them in whatever order you want, drop in the music(mp3 or wav) and you're done!

My favorite and consistant handmade gifts are personalized chocolates.

I make the chocolates from molds, then personalize the boxes and the tops of the candies. I use colored white chocolate to put their initials or sayings on each piece. Then use edible inks for putting little words of wisdom or initials on the bottoms of the paper candy cups. I also decorate the box with various designs for each individual.

They love it every year! And each one is personalized per recipient.

I'm a big time creative wrapper, so my gift wrapping always looks like a gift too! Some people have left their gifts wrapped just cause it looked so beautiful! I have even bought wooden boxes to wrap their gifts in, but decoupage'd the boxes with cutouts of things they like. One for a girl was covered in jewelry pieces, one covered in costmetics for another girl, wine tasting stuff for my bro, and fly-tying stuff for my dad.

So, its not just the purchased item that counts, the packaging is everything too!

Watch out Martha! Aint got nothing on me! LOL

I enjoy making all kinds of things and have given hand made gifts lots of times before. In the past I have made candles, done cross stitch and made painted wooden holiday signs(cut them out of the wood myself, sanded and did all the painting). The last few years I have been really big into beading...jewelry, ornament covers, home decor etc. All done with glass seed beads and/or other larger glass beads. I really enjoy it and everyone seems to enjoy their gifts.

Every year I make an ornemant for everyone in the family. Normally personalized with names. Although I have been having fun with bead ornaments...

I hate how commercial hoildays are I do shop for my kids everything else I create based on the individuals.

I enjoy doing glass etching... Its complicated process but alot of fun... I am making hand painted wine glasses for alot of people I know...
