I came across these leaf paintings today. For someone with patience they look like a fun, unique project to try. http://jefferyedoherty.blogspot.com/2009/10/first-leaves-of-october.html
I've been doing Visual Prayers (as well as Visual Scriptures) and they make beautiful, heartfelt gifts.I also just reviewed a book called Making Crosses (review will be posted this Thursday) I'd like do those for gifts.Both can be made by adults and kids.
I've just recently started making journal jars. I made one for my Mom last year for Christmas and she loved it enough to write a book from the questions for me and my siblings. http://nanathena.blogspot.com/2009/10/never-know-what-will-be-next.html
I have several gift ideas/tutorials on my blog, but a couple of my favorites areCanning Jar Pin Cushion:http://spt2.blogspot.com/2009/03/mason-jar-pincushion-tutorial.htmland Quick Matchbook Notepad:http://spt2.blogspot.com/2009/10/matchbook-notepad-my-super-simple-quick.htmlI really have been enjoying your blog and look forward to this new theme on Fridays!Have a Wonderful Week-be back to post for WFMW

I have a recipe for crock-pot chocolate covered nuts that is delicious. I made a couple batches and put them in cute tins that I got at Michaels on clearance at the end of the season. I got rave reviews and requests for more this year. Of course, I cannot find the recipe at this moment. :) I'll keep looking though.
I've really enjoyed your site as well, and home made gift ideas are ALWAYS welcome. Here are a few that I've posted recently:These flowers, if done with the right colors, would make beautiful Christmas gifts:http://suchakingdom.blogspot.com/2009/09/paper-flowers.htmland home made kids' meals would be a fun and unique gift for kids:http://suchakingdom.blogspot.com/2009/09/home-made-kids-meals.htmlThanks!

I'm so excited to see all the ideas! Currently working on making gifts myself. I just shared my 1st 'found' idea that I made last week. Still collecting more jars! Quick, easy and cute.http://designtoshine.blogspot.com/2009/10/got-gifts-idea-1.html
What perfect timing! We are having a frugal holiday event at our church for the ladies in late November and one of the most requested topics is frugal gift giving!!!! I'll definitely be tuning in every Friday to see what you've got going on :). Love it!!!

Here's how I make homemade bubble bath! This idea is practically FREE and it's so much fun!http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/blog/homemade-birthday-gift
I think my recipe is really similar to that, only I add cashews instead of only peanuts... but that's very close and she is right, they are very addictive! :)
