Do songs count? Or babies?
Songs count, you can share them here.

Babies don't count as you can't give them away or sell them, especially not here.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Wow, it is great to see the creative work you people do. Thank you for sharing it.

I design jewellery using glass beads mainly but would have to do the "image uploading" course to share with you all! The photos are good too as hubby makes those and he is a talented photographer...

Keep up the good work

Socks are neat, they take a second.
What lovely work! I crochet booties but have yet to master the art of knitting in the round that small! It tends to looks like macramé

Yes, it's all edible, and quite tasty. With her own fondant recipe, it's not the usual sugary decorations.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Here are some of the items I made for our unbirthday party
http://instagr.am/p/KDSgy/?ref=nf
Sugar paste teacups for the cake
http://instagr.am/p/KA-Eb/?ref=nf
Tea cup piñata that turned out to be almost indestructible (too much papier mache)

And here is some of the letterpress work I've been doing. After a visit from the manufacturer on Friday, my press is working properly

I am now working on a hallway dresser the movers scratched all over the place. I'll take some pictures. I am doing Indian style.

I apply the color with brushes, sponges and plastic bags for textures.
