What crafts do you do? Post pics if you have any sweet creations.
I really want do something with my hands. I would really like to try scrapbooking or jewelry making. I think i’d need to take some class to get me started.

I love beading! I’ve been making ornaments for all the women in my life every Christmas for a few years now. I started off making jewelry, but find I don’t really wear it too much and the ornaments are just a huge hit. This year I’m going to try to make little beaded boxes for everyone, if time permits.
These are the boxes I’m going to start making:

Probably not the best option for most people since it is so time consuming, but I make quilts.
Here are two of my most recent ones:
My dog has trouble staying off the quilts I’m working on.

If you want something you can do with a minimum of preparation, I enjoy calligraphy. It takes a long time to start getting the letters right, and such, but if I want to sit down and work on it, all I really need to do is grab a fountain pen and some nice paper. It’s what I do when I’m in a lazy creative mood :).

I scrapbook. I have completed a scrapbook for high school, college, and am now working on one of events after college, as well as one of my dog. I print all the pictures from my camera, and then after I scrapbook them I categorize the ones I didn’t use in a box by year. It’s a good way for me to organize pictures and all those little mementos I get from things, such as tickets. I think it is fun and it is worthwhile!

Right now I’m making decoupage glass magnets. I don’t have any picture on here unfortunately, but the’yre pretty easy to describe. You just put some flat glass round stones from Michaels, decoupage glue, round magnets and a little decoupage paintbrush. You then find things that you want to make magnets of. I’m currently making a set of 10 for my brother and his gf as a gift of all of the places that are important to them so they are map magnets! They are so easy, you can do them while watching TV or a movie and they are really cute and a perfect gift for anyone!
They’re like this…http://pinterest.com/pin/192779733/

I do all kinds of things, but most of them are for my friend’s kids. I made these blocks for a friend’s baby shower.

I knit and do jewelry. I kind of quit the scarf I was working on during wedding planning and haven’t gotten back to it yet although our wedding was 3 months ago lol. But I’ve started doing chain maille jewelry which, although it can be kind of expensive to make, is right up my alley. I like making regular jewelry, but I really love working with pliers and weaving the itty bitty rings together to come up with such an interesting creation. I just finished my first bracelet and pair of earrings which I gave to my mom while she was here this weekend and she loved them! They look similar to the picture above except the wire is copper, I loved the warm color.
