So here's what I'm planning to make with some of the images that have given me ideas.
Felt pencil rolls (for Lyra Ferber Pencils that Beau has requested)

Handmade Colouring books - I'm going to photocopy some of my line drawings and add drawings of photos from the kids lives and make a nice cover. This way I can use recycled paper.

Japanese style door hangings (Norens)
I like the idea of sewing applique pictures on the panels. My friends have these hanging in all their bedroom doors. They look beautiful and give privacy without blocking light.

Hand - covered 2013 Dairies
This year I bought a simple notebook that I liked and just hand wrote the dates in and stuck in some art work - laborious but also a good meditation!
I've also covered books in fabric which is fun too. Just need a glue stick.
I'm thinking of making Beau a swimming bag too.
Last year I made Short Breads and chocolates and preserved lemons.
Here are some Handmade Stocking filler ideas from Pinterest.
