If you are looking for some ideas for handmade gifts this season, you are in luck. There are several notable blogs featuring daily and weekly inspirations so you can stay away from the mall this year. These are the ones I know about. Tell me about the ones you find. I could always use 1000 more ideas to distract myself from what I currently need to accomplish.

I have all these projects swimming around in my head with that usual feeling of tragic excitement. The tragic part comes in when it turns out I only have time to make one of my ideas before Christmas.
And also don't forget the idea treasure trove you can find at Martha Stewart, which features a Craft of the Day. To reveal how sadly compulsive I am, I'll tell you that I've clipped and filed every likely craft idea from MS Living and Real Simple for years ('likely' as in nothing requiring gesso or gold leaf). Now I have these four huge categorized binders. I love the internet as a resource, but nothing beats having an idea book in my hands.
