Crafty websites

So, I'm doing my own Christmas presents this year.  Making them that is.  I've been scouring the web for ideas and came across some awesome blogs/websites that have totally inspired me.  I thought I would share some of these websites (and record them all in one place for myself).

#1 Opps, I craft my pants  

#2  Someday Crafts

#3  Blog party link for christmas craft ideas

#4  Somewhat Simple

#5  Not so idle hands

I'd share what I'm making, but some of you awesome people may be recipients of my stolen creativity, so you'll just have to wait.  :)  In the mean time, here are a few crafts I've done recently to decorate my house with...

This next one is an advent calendar.  I made 25 different magnets for each day.  They store on the back of the cookie sheet.  
By Christmas our calendar should look like this!

And a few close ups of the magnets just for fun. 


Lots more crafting to go, and less than a month to get it all done!!
