PERFECT TO BRING AS A HOSTESS GIFT
Instead of flowers or a bottle of wine, this year, bring a handmade gift that your host or hostess will be able to use for years to come (and enjoy year-round as well!).

BEADED TEA INFUSER
Buy some plain tea balls or infusers and dress them up for the holidays! What a charming idea to make something personal for the tea drinker in your life. Steven James always has great ideas!

You set down your drink at a cocktail party and the next thing you know, you've forgotten which glass is yours! Create a set of these wine charms designed by Tea Benduhn to bring as a lovely hostess gift, perfect for any holiday party.
GIFT IDEAS FOR THE CHILD IN YOUR LIFE
What a special thing it is to make something handmade for a child. This year, give a gift that is personal, and share your skill and creativity with a new generation. Next thing you know, they'll be wanting to see how you made it!

BEADED BUBBLE WANDS
Children of every age love to play with bubbles. How cute is this idea from Steven James? Make up a batch of bubble liquid for hours of fun on Christmas morning. 
FringedFairiesandAngels
FRINGED FAIRIES AND ANGELS
What a perfect addition to a fairy garden! Sew them onto a popsicle stick so that they can be placed into the ground. Or perhaps add a magnet to the back and create a miniature wonderland on the front of the fridge! What can you create from Jennifer Creasey's pattern? 
bookmarks
BEADED BOOKMARKS
These super easy bookmarks can be customized to suit the personality of the reader. Pick the recipient's favorite color for the ribbon, or perhaps there's a pattern that works: look for ribbon featuring licensed characters from Disney or Dr. Seuss at your local fabric store! Use charms instead of beads to highlight a child's special interests. Joanna Mueller's project has so many different creative options! 
Seedbeadpenguins
SEED BEAD PENGUINS
Create a "snowy" wonderland with some felt or batting and add a handful of these little guys for hours of imaginative play! Robert Jackson's project is made from tubular square stitch!
