1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / gift for a close guy friend on: October 06, 2008 09:49:37 PM
so my best guy friend turned 19 today, and i have no clue what to make him! he has been my crush for about a year and a half now, but i don't want my gift to make it awkward. i want it to be meaningful in a "you're really awesome and i love you best friend" way and not a creepy "i've got a major crush on you" kind of way. does that make sense? haha he knows that i like him, but i want it to be a strictly friends gift.

he's a big metal head and loves the internet and video games (pretty much anything for xbox 360). he is learning how to play guitar and writes his own songs too. i made him a shirt a while ago that said "team creeper" on it, which he loved and all his friends like a lot. i also bought him a poster that says, "if it ain't metal, it ain't music". he's super into ultimate frisbee, and his favorite color is black.

i'm sure he'd like anything i make him, but i want it to be a meaningful gift instead of just a silly thing. anyway, if anyone has any ideas i'd love to hear them! he's visiting near the end of october, so i have a little while to think and create. anything is welcome, and if you need more info, ask away! thanks so much!  Grin

so after 8 years (ok, exaggeration) of not having internet for more than 5 minutes, and taking 1 picture a day since my camera has decided to be a complete failure at holding a charge even WITH new batteries, i present to you my package from scifunk! it is AMAZING, and i obviously had the best partner ever. sorry to all those who think they did, but really, i totally win on this.
my themes were (i think... vaguely i remember. haha) sharks, owls, fashion, deadliest catch, and photography!

first! a super awesome shark pin! the photo's blurry, but wowowow is it amazing!


second! an amazing shark pillow! it's so fuzzy and fluffy and amazing! when i make my bed i make sure it is HIGHLY visible!


third! this super neat painting! it's called "catwalk"! fashion reference! i think it's adorable and i think scifunk said her mom painted it? it's so fun and the colors are awesome! it's now residing above my closet to give me some fashion inspiration!


fourth! a wallet! with cute little owl fabric! it is so fun, and i've been desperately needing a new wallet! she even gave me the left over fabric to make something else Smiley


fifth! i didn't even realize i had this until my roommate went through the box and found them! and i was really excited she did because i love them and wore them to my photography class that next day! camera earrings!!!


and last but certainly not least, my absolute favorite out of everything in my package (i love all the others, but this is just too adorable!) EDGAR HANSEN! for all of those who watch deadliest catch, you know who this is. but for all others! he's my total favorite person on the tv show. and he's the deck boss for the northwestern crabbing boat! notice the crab in his hand! and he's even wearing his deck gear!


but wait!

the crab is detatchable! clever scifunk put a magnet in his hand and one in the crab! GENIUS! now i understand the little message she left Wink

thank you SO MUCH scifunk! i absolutely adore everything!!

so things got a bit crazy once school started (2 days earlier than i had planned for!), and who knew photography would be such a difficult major, with more reading than actual photography!? but i think things are getting settled now, so crafting shall commence this coming week!

Embarrassed things are going pretty slowly on the craft front for me! school started earlier than i thought, and classes have already piled on the homework! who knew that a photography major would be so difficult! i'm hoping to get a lot of crafting done on monday, tuesday, and wednesday. we'll see how that goes! i've been searching high and low for a certain thing i need, but can't find ANYWHERE! so i might have to come up with something completely different!

just checking in! it's been slowly but steadily getting done. i just started classes (which i thought were supposed to start on thursday!), so i'm probably going to give crafting a rest for a day or 2 to get settled into my class schedule. hope everyone's crafting is going well!
