Thank you officepro and Holiday. You can do it too...only takes seashells, wreath form, hot glue, and merry lights...oh and a little bit of time to put into it. Lol.
You've probably seen the trees I make. I believe I've posted it here before.

This year I am going to make - Jams, Chutney, Pin cushions, Aprons, Oven Gloves, Cookies, Christmas Cakes. I am not going to buy any presents everyone is getting homemade this year.

I love the sound of those spiced nuts in jars that have been mentioned - does anyone know where I can find a good recipe please??

My 5 yr old DD will be painting and decorating Christmas magnets and ornaments from the wooden cut-outs at the craft store. We will probably enclose them in the Christmas cards.

I usually make my cards for people. Usually involves some sort of photography, last year i stuck a red present ribbon on my cats nose, and used it as the image for my christmas cards, it was really cute. This year, i might dress my little sister up as a christmas fairy, and take a nice black and white photo. Or maybe my dog as santa claus? I might go for something comic actually. I could stick cotton wool on my chin and wear a christmas hat, that would be so funny.

Gifts, i usually make a little hamper. I buy small cardboard boxes, and decorate the festively, then inside i put all sorts of christmas chocolates/sweets and maybe a little gift like earings or a braclet. This year i might knit scarves, because i've just knitted myself one with this gorgeous angora wool, and it went really well But it would take ages, so maybe not.

Those shell decorations are beautiful!

This year I am making personalized hampers (for my dad a "movie night" hamper that could contain popcorn, a few dvds, candy canes, cinema tickets etc..you get the idea, the specifics aint worked out properly yet lol. But I will be tailoring them to each family members "things they like" if you see what I mean lol). They will be wrapped in eaither Copper, Cream or Gold metallic wrap (that should arrive soon) with contrasting metallic bows. Will start putting them together in December, but will buy the things to go in them from now on in lol

I am also doing home made cookies that I have bought some really cute cello bags with xmas designs on to put them in. Nice ribbon to tie them shut and voila!

and breath

lol
