Hello.

Have you been doing any poncetastic prep for Christmas?

Do please post up some pics of your homemade decorations and/or homemade gifts for us all to gawp at.

Or, if your child has brought home (or made at home) any brilliant/endearingly wonky Xmas crafts, do take a snap and post them up too.

Photo was easy ,just uploaded from my photo stream.

Vodka whack a load of sweets in vodka, put bottles In dishwasher on high setting. Leave to dissolve shaking it every day.

Ahardyfool I only started knitting in February! An old dog can be taught new tricks!

I want to use a different theme in wrapping for each family member. I love this one.

Oh my, not Terry--'s crotch--!

Very impressed by Scuttlebug's bag.
I have done handmade gifts in the past. I wish I had photos of the crushed velvet retro ties I did for my brothers one year when I was about 17...they were quite something!

Alicadabra Tue 20-Nov-12 18:23:03

Wow, you lot are all so talented! The cakes! The bags! The advent stockings! I'm in awe <slinks off in shame for thinking my humble crafty efforts were any good>

Think you're a bit premature to be poncing Xmas just yet.

For the American mumsnetters, a bit of poncetasic Thanksgiving... Bread cornucopia

would like to share mine - how do I post a picture??

Christmas Elf- very please with him! He'll be keeping an eye on my DS (age 7 months, never to early to start the Father Christmas bribery!)

Love that elf!!

I'm no crafter - these are from a kit bought for DD last Christmas. We sat together last weekend and started these. Needless to say, DD lost interest shortly after starting so I finished them. We like them!

Bejaypers, I am feeling incredibly disorganised right now. I am tempted to send a photo of my liquor cabinet. It's all I have that is remotely Christmassey but none of it is home brewed.

MidnightKnitter Thu 22-Nov-12 08:24:05

handknit gloves and scarf for my sister. Funny i've never seen her wear them.

Theicingontop Wed 28-Nov-12 14:34:40

Yay for Christmas poncing! Totally new to this, in a way, but kind of not. I guess I was an undiscovered poncer. I've been poncing away on Pinterest without even knowing I was doing it.

Aw, this thread died somewhat. Anyone got anything else to show?

Here's my pick from my 6 days of Christmas crafts so far...even if they look a bit more like starfish than snowflakes

OstrichSizedToLapland Thu 13-Dec-12 08:27:43

Oh I've got one.

The family of elves that live on our porch.
