Simple cross stitch small things that are easy to do for beginners. You can make key fobs, bookmarks, pictures in small frames and all can be bought with everything you neede. The kits have needle, thread, aida and frame. The instructions are easy to follw and you have something pretty at the finish.

Paper crafts are easy to do as well, I make Artist Trading cards, altered CD's and lots of other things. You can join a forum and trade what you make. I belong to these boards. This one is small and a bit more personal

This one is big but they have a lot more going on
www.atcsforall.com/

Both are free and you can swap and trade on both sites giving you something new to make and do.
Have a look at my blog you will see what else I get up and if you like you too can join in the challenges.

Here is my favorite. If you don't have any of the supplies they are very cheap to buy.

Bookmarks

Supplies: Tags (or card stock), paint, magazine or calendar pictures, and yarn.

I use Tags I get from the craft store. They are like manilla envelope paper with a reinforced hole in the top. You can use card stock (the paper has to be heavy) if you'd like.

I like the metallic-looking paints because they have a glossy finish. I prefer it to be smooth.

I use Page-A-Day Calendars. I save each of the pages for this craft. I generally buy them at 75% off. I also use magazine pictures.

Yarn I use for 2 reasons. I can see it in my book better and (most importantly) my cat LOVES them. I buy cute and specialty yarns at Big Lots. So, it's not too pricey.

Here is an example.
