you could try decopatch. It is really easy to do and the results are always lovely. Hobbycraft has the paper, the glue and various things to put it on. I'm planning on doing it to the frame of a cheap mirror and a boring clock. They have animals, letters, boxes. I've put it on small glasses for candles, on boring biros... There are probably lots of ideas on the net.

Make soap! Firstly, it's cool because Tyler Durden did that 8-) Secondly, it's really easy, you can buy a ready made soap bars in a craft store and add some food coloring and your project is done)

No idea who tyler durden is but you can buy pure soap bars. Then you can melt it down in small amounts, mix in colouring and scented oil, then put it in a mould to cool. It's good if you have friends who are sensitive to some colours/perfumes as you can still put the melted soap into moulds, hugs xxx

I mainly do knitting I've found it of late that my corss stich has gone out the window due to how my mind is I just can't concentrate on delicate patterns yet simple things like making hats with knitting I'm fine with. Keeps my hands busy.

This is sort of one that I made up and went along with, and I found it to be very therapeutic and good for the mind-set. I printed off pictures that I liked, I would say a nature picture would be fun to do, and all I did was get a variety of different colour threads I liked, and sewed the outline of what was in the picture. It's very much like cross-stitch if you like, but a lot more freedom and fun to do with a picture you like. :)
