    I’m doing both. I actually have a pretty long to do list, that keeps getting longer every time I see something cool on the internet. I’ll never finish it all in time. I never do.

    Hi from NSW Australia. I am in the midst of making many things. I have just finished and sent off my scrapbooked cards which i am very proud of. I have also been making santa style clothes for 2 neices and a new wallhanging for our bedroom. I have made the pud and today will make the first cake with a few more to make as gifts. Yes very busy but loving every crafting minute. Merry Christmas to all.

    Usually I make some type of scrapbooks as gifts but unfortunately this year I am not. All of my stuff is currently boxed up and moved to a new room. I am still in the process of unpacking so I decided not to put the pressure on myself to complete anything this year. But I can’t wait to get back to scrapbooking after the first of the year!

  11. Mary K on December 4, 2009 10:24 am

    I’m planning on making some sequin trees!

  12. Jennifer on December 4, 2009 10:48 am

    I am doing both, but finding it hard to get the gifts done with four little inquiring minds peeking over my shoulder :)

  13. Billie K on December 4, 2009 10:50 am

    No plans yet. I’m having a surprise party for my Mom tomorrow………..hopefully after that I can think Christmas.

    My crafting plans this year include Christmas cards, a daily journal for the month of December, and cards, handmade journals and an altered canvas for gifts :)

  16. Amy Coose on December 4, 2009 11:40 am

    I’d love to make some gift card holders this year. Hoping I can fit that in.

  18. Catie on December 4, 2009 12:41 pm

    I will attempt to create our Christmas cards and thank you notes. I will also FINISH some quilts that I started

  19. debby on December 4, 2009 1:56 pm

    I am quite sure I will be in my sewing room from now until Christmas. i am making everything from the gifts to the gift wrap but I am sure I will not have time to bake. I sure hope someone makes me Christmas cookies.

  20. Tiffan on December 4, 2009 2:07 pm

    I am making Christmas cards as we speak. I don’t know how many I’ll actually finish in time, but I’m having fun making them!


  21. Mary Anne on December 4, 2009 3:19 pm

    I’m not doing as much crafting as usual, but am doing some little Christmas angel dolls that combine both crafting AND decor in one project.

  22. Didee on December 4, 2009 3:51 pm

    So far my crafting has been limited to a few simple ornaments and some Christmas tags. I hope to have a chance to make a few special handmade Christmas cards.

  36. jennifer evans on December 8, 2009 10:10 am

    Every day! We make all our gifts by hand, so we are quite busy at my house. ;)

  37. Carmel on December 8, 2009 1:45 pm

    I am making a few gifts – journals and mini albumns etc.

  38. Beth on December 8, 2009 1:56 pm

    I really want to, but time has been a real issue.

  39. margotmacg on December 8, 2009 11:32 pm

    I’ve made four special christmas boots (stockings, but cut in highwayman’s boot shape, and stuffed at the foot end; decorated to the nth degree – they are gorgeous, if I do say so myself). If I’ve got time I’ll make three more. Would love to win this e-book (one of the only a few Ella e-books I don’t own already). Thanks!
