Terri, sounds like you have your act together with you scrapbooking, so 2013 should be a breeze there. The classes for/with your friends will be fun and maybe have the side benefit of putting some extra money in your pocket from product sales.
I love quilts. I grew up in Amish/Mennonite country so handmade quilts were always around. One year my grandma bought me a quilt at a big fundraising event at the retirement community where she lived. I still have and love it. My ex-MIL also did beautiful quilts. At one point, I thought quilting would be "my thing" until my mom and I went to a rubber stamp class at a LSS and I fell in love with the stamping.
I used to knit as well and know how nice it is to be able to make things for loved ones. I am sure your son's coach and his wife will love the "made with love" gift for their twins.
