    I too have been putting together my list for the year! :)

    Lots of things planned that aren't for Christmas - class treats for Valentines and Easter, end of year gifts, Easter decor and some birthday gifts here and there.

    DS Birthday
    - Happy Birthday Poster Size Sign for Party Decor
    - Embellished Brown Paper Sacks for Party Goodie Bags (24)
    - Space themed Altoid Tin Set (gift)

    Twins Birthday, End of Jan - Recipe Binders - wanted to finish for Christmas but ran out of room in the boxes to send so I gave up. Going to try and get done!!!

    Misc. Things

    A-Maze-ing Printable + Valentines Pencil (Class Treat, 25)
    Easter Class Treat TBD (25)
    Speckled Egg Easter Wreath
    Felt Easter Garland, Design TBD
    Jumbo Yarn Afghan - DH Birthday
    Sisal Waste Basket (for downstairs bath) - Hot gluing sisal rope around mesh metal basket I picked up at a garage sale
    Painted Mason Jar Set - End of year teacher gift, one will be red with green felt leaf tired on, one will be yellow to suggest a pencil - still figuring out embellishment and one will be chalkboard black
    End of Year Gifts for 2 Aides, TBD
    Father's Day Gift for DH - TBD, will make something with DS
    Toy, TBD for 5yr old girl birthday
    Various handmade cards for birthdays, etc. (39)

    Christmas List so far is as follows:

    - Winter Swags (Not really Christmas but want to have done to put up when Christmas comes down next year - I've got most of the supplies purchased at the after Christmas sales and I think I may have all I need to assemble - these will go up on the French doors in the living room when the big tree comes down)

    - Red Felt Tree Skirt with Applique - Would really like to do this for under our big tree. Need to make sure I can make the pattern first then I'll order the wool blend felt. Will probably do black felt applique - will be fun picking the design!

    - Embroidered Sheet Sets (2) - Will embroider simple design in black on the pillow cases and flat sheets

    - Custom Cord Wraps - These will be for DH, you drill a hole in synthetic wine corks and add knotted bungee cord material - thought they might be useful for him out in the garage and will make a good stocking stuffer

    - Felt Ornaments, Designs TBD (20)

    - Salt Dough Ornaments - Will make with DS to give to various family members

    - Felt Sunglasses Cases with Felt Applique and Embroidery (7)

    - Felt Poppy Decorated Clothespin Magnets (4 sets)

    - Felt Tote Bags (2-3) - Plan to make the bags including felt applique and embroidery

    - Red Burlap Wreaths with Embroidered Ribbon Bows (2)

    - Felt Covered Meade Notebooks (2)

    - Felt Hot Water Bottle Cover with Applique and Embroidery (1)

    - Ribbon Paperclips (3 sets)

    - Embroidered Umbrella (1)

    I did a glass block with a nativity scene on it for my mom for Christmas and she really liked it so I am thinking about making one for various other members of the family for Christmas. The kids want to make ornaments so that will be on the list. I made a rice bag for my dad but I am thinking about making some pocket size rice bags for him and my kids to keep in the coat pockets.

    AJ, as usual an amazing to do list.
    I notice that you use a lot of felt. I have only done one project in felt but am going to do more this year. Will do decorations for work people using felt.
