Okay, maybe you are a procrastinator? Or perhaps you find the mad-rush against the holiday clock to be thrilling? In either case you are covered on CraftStylish this week. We have some featured projects that you can whip up as quick as an elf and they'll look like you started on Labor Day. And for the craft thrill-seekers, just wait until you see what's possible practically over night and just in the nick of time!

  • Jeffery Rudell will post "take two" on last week's failed paper creche project. Even though it is hard to imagine one of Jeffery's failed projects, it will be fun to see what passes his own personal muster. Check it out on Monday morning, and prepare to be amazed.
  • Ah, yes, it's that time on the craft calendar when many of us wonder what ever possessed us to pick up a needle? How are you ever going to finish all of those DIY gifts in time? Jennifer Worick weighs in with some comisseration, consideration, and creative wisdom to spur your crafty soul.
  • Quick! You are leaving for a holiday party in an hour and you forgot to make a hostess gift! Relax, Shannon Dennis will show you how to make a darling (and quick) cookie plate cover and still have time to get all prettied up.
  • Linda Permann has a really cute idea for your DIY tree: Trim those boughs with crochet ornaments. These sweet danglers are perfect for a beginner and you can make a whole trees-worth in no time.
  • Erika Kern gets you busy with a bake-free goodies project: fun felt food for a child's play kitchen. With a few dollars and a bit of cleverness, sheets of 25-cent felt are turned into cookies, cakes, fruit and veg, and more!
  • Tina Hilton brings us over the finish line in the final installment of the Dare to Make It Knit-Along. This is the moment you've been knitting for: a completed handmade sweater. Be sure to post your accomplishment in the gallery so we can all ohh and ahh.
  • On Friday, Mary Ray will show you how to make a beautiful quilted Christmas-tree banner quilt. This stunning project makes for a great hostess gift or as a way to bring some holiday dash to your own home.
  • Susan Beal's part three of her ornament upcycle posts will show you another terrific embellishment idea to revive your favorite holiday decorations and make your tree sparkle.
  • What do you want from Crafty Claus? That's the question on the Roundtable this week. Join the discussion of what's on our wish lists this year or read the responses for some not-so-subtle hints on what to get a crafter this year.
