I'm a super-duper procrastinator, so I'm only just starting on mine, but they are (hopefully!) quick and easy this year so it shouldn't take long. Famous last words, eh?

Anyway, for those who are more organized than I, show us the gifts you have made! Or, if they're not finished yet, tell us about them/show us a work in progress pic!

I totally have no pics, but I will show you what I am making if that helps :P

Making these for my siblings: http://www.theppk.com/2011/08/punk-rock ... jar-mixes/

These for my girlfriends (I am using my own mix of equal parts baking soda, sea salt, soy milk powder, and double that amount Epsom salts and pulverized oat meal.. I scent with peppermint and vanilla, and colour with green by dabbing the oils onto a bit of cloth and swirling it in the mix): http://www.essortment.com/diy-beauty-pr ... 51914.html

And then I knit a simply cowl/ circle scarf out of chunky wool for my mom.

Work friends are getting peanut butter cups (I don't really have a recipe, I just make them up) and candy cane fudge: http://blog.peta2.com/2011/12/candy-can ... dium=Promo

My squirrels are getting a new cozy polar fleece hammock for their cage and pumpkin pie (their favorite! Recipe is mine): http://sexyclean.wordpress.com/2011/10/ ... mpkin-pie/

I made the mistake of doing an entirely DIY Christmas this year, haha. I did enjoy it, but it was stressful to the last minute getting it all done. My camera cord is in my dorm room though, so no pictures until I get back to school on the 6th.

I spent the last month and a half either sick with the death flu or getting my car fixed to the tune of TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS (damn.), so my presents for my brother and his wife were not done.

I managed to finish hers-- it's a Cold War-era surplus Soviet tankers helmet with the headphone bits replaced with normal headphones that you can plug into an iPod or whatever. (Yeah, the originals wouldn't work so well...) I think she'll dig it in general, even if she doesn't, you know, wander around tank-helmeting it up. (They're black padded cloth since they're mostly to stop you bumping your head on the inside of your tank.)

His will be more-or-less that too, except American, modern, and with a microphone so he can play video games and chat with it if he feels so inclined, and painted with a particular WW2 German camouflage pattern that he should find amusing. (It's a DH-132A helmet and Hetzer ambush camo, if you feel google-imagely inclined. I think it'll be impressively ugly.)

Yeah, it's silly and requires a lot of rewiring to make these things useful outside of their intended context, but it's fun and I think they'll think it's amusing, at least.

I actually got mine done on time this year! I was up super late on 12/22 so that I could overnight ship them on 12/23, but I made it!

I embroidered monograms on hankies for my dad and grandpa. 4 for each of them (that's all I had time to do). My sis took the larger project of embroidering day-of-the week kitchen towels for my mom and both grandmas. She finished with time to spare, but she also has a lot more free time than I do! All was very well received.

I'll see if I can find pics of the hankies. I think I took some bad cell-phone ones right before I wrapped them (I'm not sure, it was 4am!)

Made this for my brother, a hardcore Twin peaks fan (just as I am, I was tempted to keep it for myself for a while). It's made with 14400 pearls. Sorry about the bad pic quality, my brother took the picture, heh.

Bumping this, because I want to see what people are doing this year.

Ooooh, yeah! Not sure I'm going to have time for DIY this year but I can't wait to see what others are doing!

This is a hoop for my youngest wall of fandoms. Image

Here is another hoop (sense a theme here?) for my best friend. It is a total rip on one from pinterest or something.

Made a rosary for my mother!

Already wrapped and labeled "from your heathen daughter."

I also made a bracelet for one of my best friends, but I realized a piece broke off one of the slider pieces, and I don't know if I can alter it and take that piece out without ruining the whole thing :(

I just made a batch of Indian spiced nuts for my best friend and her family. I made a necklace and earrings for my grandmother, but I have no pictures.

EPIC!! I am also a huge Twin Peaks fan, and I can tell you I would be stoked to get that.

Cross-posted from the Stitch-n-Bitch thread, cause everything else I made is already wrapped up and I didn't take pics yet!
