Homemade Christmas

I am not the craftiest person around, the creative side of my brain is lazy when I am wide awake which isn't often but there is something about glue, fabric and markers that just makes me want to create:)
So I have for you today some of my favorite things around the web that you can make for Christmas.
First we have Bizzy Bee Creations I personally love her altered clipboards and Holiday Garland
I Love, Love the Garland:)

Perhaps this next one is more then you want to take on for the Holidays but I have to at some point in my life make this. But if you are the super crafty type it would make a super awesome present.

I have seen the Crayon Holders all over the web, personally I think they are uber cute and would make one for Katie but the rest of my kids probably would just dump them all out and then stomp on them, Skip To My Lou is a really great place for gift ideas and easy to understand tutorials.

If you really, really like to get creative check out this amazing Snowman over at Simple Flourishes. I was definitely wowed.

I am making these for the kids for Christmas (shhhh) the pattern is easily adaptable so I can make all there favorite animals:)

Little Birdie Secrets is one of my all time favorite blogs and i want to make Lots of these Memory boards. Again great easy to understand tutorials.

I want to make all my kids a quilt again this year, I really love the Ragged Squares quilt over at Crazy Mom Quilts and she does a awesome tutorial.

So that's my list for the day, I have more (lots and loads more) but I will save those for another time, right now my house is crying "clean me! clean me!"

Wow.. some GREAT ideas!!!

I've made those clipboards for birthday gifts for some of the women in my neighborhood. They've LOVED them, and I was thinking of doing them as teacher gifts this year for all my kids.

I am totally IN LOVE with the snowman ornaments. I MUST make some of them!!!

We are planning a homemade Christmas this year and good grief I need to get started! Thanks for all the links!!!
