What crafts do you enjoy doing. I have a penchant for jewellery, bears, pincushions and hanbags. No rhyme or reason but these things I find myself continually doing. For Christmas this year for the first time I made a heap ofornaments and really enjoyed them. I made enough of each one for my daughters as well so that when they eventually leave home they will take a box of these things with them to decorate their own tree. So spill tell me what you like.

I have been making these bags. I made enough to sell wholesale for Christmas. I can't quite get the rounding on the corners. This will get better with time. Do you have any photo's of your ornaments. I would love to make doll clothing myself.

That is neat that you made so many ornaments. I like to do crafts too but I've not made ornaments. There are some great crafts that you can buy in kits. My daughter likes to do these. I like to knit and crochet and some other yarn crafts. I also like to sew and itis also useful.

The ornments were easy, recycling alot of stuff I had around the house like light bulbs, buttons and beads. They didn't take too much time and I have started collecting stuff in a box for next year now!

I love crafting! I design and create jewelry, that is my fvorite craft. I also like to craft gourds. Actually any craft that I see that grabs my attention I will do, LOL. I made a bunch of Christmas ornaments this year too, mine were made out of gourds. What were your ornaments made from?

I love paper craft, card making, paper making, ceramics, sculpture, clay throwing, cement sculpting, wire work, welding, soldering, jewlery making, beading, glass slumping drawing, painting, tie dye, tea dye, polymer clay, crochet candle works and coffee painting. My avitar is one of my coffee paintings. Basically, I do whatever I feel is right at the time and try to let my creative juices flow with whatever is lying around. I have always wanted my own shop where I could sit all day and make things and sell them. Alas, I doubt it will ever happen. I have managed to make a very eclectic home for myself, and everyone always has a beautiful Christmas present from me every year

I love crafting floral arranging,crocheting,loom knitting,macrame,cross stitching,and a few others. The idea for the ornaments for your daughters is lovely. WHen they decorate their tree they can think of you as they hang those.

I love to scrapbook. It is just so time consuming though. I have like 5 boxes of things to sort through before I ever decide how to do one page. (who said this is relaxing) LOL!!!

I like to make cards. I also like to make jewelry; although I'm not real good at it yet. LOL But, I keep trying.... I also made some christmas ornaments this year. I seem to be getting into a lot of different things. I watch crafting shows and get some really good ideas. I guess I get in over my head trying a lot of different things at a time.

Hi there, I make lotsa ,lotsa cards! In fact, I no longer have a kitchen table, it's piled high with crafting goodies.........I haven't bought a card for simply years, I make them all. I work 20 hours a week, and the rest of the time...although I do have a family, y'know..., I make up cards for family and friends. I often have phone messages to say that someone needs a card asap...I sell to family, friends, fellow workers, and at craft fairs. I also make jewellery, but thats mainly for gifts, ratheer than to sell, as I tend to make necklaces with glass beads, and these can be quite pricey to sell to other mums. Best time of ther year, is Christmas as it's sooooo busy!

I really enjoy doing crafts. Anything that involves making things is fun, although I particularly enjoy knitting and crocheting. Lately I've been sewing, mostly tote bags.

i love paper crafting, card making, scrapbooking, candy wrapping, invitation making, and anything that has to do with a computer and printer. i love designing and printing my own artwork for children's room decor. I just started to make ceramic tile crafts that I think are really cute. desktop publishing crafts are my specialty

Hi. I'd love to see some of your patterns for your ornaments. I do all kinds of crafts that don't require sewing but I am considering re-teaching myself to sew. In any case I would love to make some ornaments for my family and friends this year. Last year I made gift box ornaments and think it would be a cute tradition to continue.

I'm not sure if what I do can be called "crafting", but I create small figures/dolls out of polymer clay. I don't do "production line" type things, as each one is completely different. But I am working with my hands, and letting my creative juices flow, if that counts! I guess it would fall more into "arts and crafts". But it's all such a relative term, it's hard to say if it's one or the other. Either way, I make stuff! I think it's great that you are making something that will be come a keepsake in the future! That makes them really special! I hope your daughters take good care of them, and pass them down to their children and grandchildren!
