Any crafters here? What kinds of crafts do you do? Do you sell the things you make or give them as gifts? Any pictures of things you've made?

I have not done it for a while, I used to do wreaths and old fashioned craft brooms and decorate them for all the holidays, did a few for myself and then did a few as gifts only, I also used to do decorative "what not" boxes, paint decoupage, find spcial little things to put on them ie: lace, beads gems, old fashioned lettering, initials of the person who was going to be the recipient, I spent hours on some of those boxes, I also used to buy plain satin ball ornaments and decorate them fancy with beads, lace etc; basically customize Christmas ornaments as gifts, never sold any of them, though.

Ooooh, I'd love to see them all, but especially the decoupage boxes! That sounds amazing.

I make beaded jewelry...all kinds of stuff, earrings, necklaces, but mostly bracelets. Some are just for fun, some are to give as gifts. I'm learning new techniques all the time (doing wireworking now) and occasionally I even sell the odd piece. Lots of pics of my stuff on my facebook page.

I used to knit, but currently I need a new (smaller) pair of needles so I can make something worth wearing. I made some stuffed animal scarves with my larger needles.
I also did a bit of crocheting. I have some little toy snails that I made by coiling up some long tubes of my work.

I make ATC's ~ Artist Trading Cards and do art journaling. With art trading cards, you make cards- playing card size basically- and swap them with other artists.

Those really are amazing! Very pretty 8D

I do random things... like making teddy bears for my brother. my most recent hing was making 4 foot tall flowers out of cellophane that I'm painting yellow and green lol.

I went to a paint-your-own pottery shop downtown today and painted a ceramic whale bank. :D it's going to be glazed and fired and I'll get it tomorrow.
