My grandma, Mom, and her two sisters have always been "crafters" - my sister finally got into it a few years ago. They do all kinds of stuff - tatting, knitting, crochet, embroidery, scrapbooking, etc. I have one DIL who makes fantastic cakes (wish I had some pictures of the things she has produced).

My ex-wife used to make brooms:

Here's a couple more pieces. The lighting was horrible so forgive the picture quality.

Lamp





Do-Dad Box, the idea was to keep all the remotes in it to clean up the coffee table. Wound up holing everything but the remotes.



A design I saw in a woodworking magazine ad for formica. Supposed to be a bonsai tree.
