Yes, Chawne can stretch scraps like no other. She is very inspiring, indeed. I hope Little Mister is feeling better. Poor guy. I love that he still wanted his stuffed animals to celebrate, even when he didn't feel like doing so. Cute!

My sister asked me to make journal pouches for this adorable little family of girls she babysits for occasionally. The family has four girls, and they are all melt-your-heart adorable. I forgot about it, and then she asked me where they were, so I whipped them up as quickly as I could to give them to her the next day. I finished late at night, and gave them to her the next morning. I didn't even take pictures. The girls loved them, though, so I guess I pulled it off. I wish I had been able to put more time into them, though.

A few years before my Granny Becker passed away they had a birthday party for her.

We were all to write down things that were special or that meant alot to us...the thing that I always remembered was that at Thanksgiving she would alway have Christmas stockings for all of us. One time I asked her where her stocking was and she responded, " I have never had a Christmas Stocking."

For her birthday that year I made her a Christmas stocking. It was only a felt kit, but it was very intricate with alot of detail and her name on it. I made her pecan, plain and caramel divinity to fill it and stuck a note in it telling her that now she had a Christmas stocking.

Every year after that I always made her the different divinities for her stocking. Every year she would send me her stocking about a week before Thanksgiving so I could fill it. She would not let anyone else fill it or have any of her candy.

The really incredible thing was that she was not a blood relation. I was gifted with the fact that she chose me...I miss her.

I like to put a lot of thought into my gifts, because I too take gift giving very seriously. On the other hand, I have scrapped together many a last minute celebration. My most recent party: my son's birthday party with 30 people and kids, changed locations to an indoor playground because of bad weather at the last minute.

I cast on a baby hat the night before a baby shower and finished it the morning of. Just in time knitting!

Making dresses for Little Dresses for Africa and starting a small quilt for Craft Hope. Scraps and bright colors would come in handy:)

as you well know, most of my gifts are thrown together at the last minute and usually my calculation of last minute is off so I'm a little later than last minute. on that note, your birthday gift will be late this year.

most thoughtful gift...i would have to say (sadly, as a crafter) that it was planning and taking rocky on a fishing trip for his birthday years ago. He still talks about how much he enjoyed going out on the lake and fishing.

My sewing machine is a storage tabletop and so I think it would be best to exclude me from today's give away festivities.

Hope Little Mister is back in peak shape in time for cake on Friday (or sooner, really).

Happy 5th day of Novakkah!

I am thinking the strip doll quilt I made for my doll obsessed niece. The night before it had to be sent to Idaho. Leaving things to the last minute so I "have to" craft instead of getting up with the baby - a good strategy I think. Indulging in my hobbies while also being a Christmas hero - what a win win right?

The most meaningful gift I pulled together in a hurry was DIY silhouettes of my kids that I gave my parents for Christmas. They were so easy but they turned out SO well. I think they are the best handmade gift I've ever made. And my parents *love* them.

Once, I found out a boyfriend (now ex) was going away for thirty days. I stayed up the night before and wrote thirty letters in thirty envelopes, packed them in a box to send with him. They included poems, song lyrics, pictures, illustrations.... everything. He and I eventually ended but I still think about doing it again, he seemed to like it so much.

thanks for the shoutout!

i once wrote a letter containing all the things my dad and i never said out loud for his 60th birthday. he seemed to like it.

Every year at Christmas I send my SIL a box of stuff, mostly presents for her boys (who have December birthdays). We send them our Christmas CD, and every year I make some little ornament-y thing for her at the last possible second. One year it was little stacking trees, one year I was felting knitted mistletoe in the middle of the night... It's always a last minute mess and it always works out great.
