Home made Christmas!

My goal for this years Christmas is to make all my children's gifts but one.
I plan on making them 5 gifts each.
So that is a total of 40 homemade gifts.
Now here is the kicker my goal is to have them all made by December 1st.
I will start this madness November 1st.
So that will give me a month to get them all done.
I know mostly what I am going to make.
The soon to be 12 year old and the 13 year old are making me really get creative.
So if you know of any fun things to make teen aged boys let me know.
Yesterday I found this fun book at Joanie's and since all my kids love stuffy's I had to get it.
I think all my kids will love these fun cuddly monsters.
I also have a Jedi cloak planed for Ben, a fur stole and American girl doll clothes for Maddy, marshmallow guns and duct tape wallets for the boys.
The big girls will be getting some fun surprises too.
I have most of the stuff to make every thing. Now Ijust need to get started..
Wish me luck!

Good luck! I love doing a homemade christmas, and that is mostly what I'm doing again this year too.

When we did celabrate Christmas I always wanted to do a home made Christmas but hubby didn't want that. Maybe next year I'll finally get that.

Wow! That is a very big goal! I'm so impressed! And yes, boys/men can be really hard to make homemade gifts for...I always like it when my guys actually ASK me to make them something because then I know they'll actually like and use them, like shop aprons, tool belts, and gun bags. Good luck - will be fun to see what you come up with :-)

Wow! what a task, but oh so much fun you are going to have Christmas morning. How about ipod covers, sport totes, knit a hat or gloves. Im making a new guitar strap for my budding rock star. Good luck!
