firstly--i must say that it is so very refreshing that i have found this website full of very cool crafters. i must say i am hooked to this site.
my problem is just as many of the other peeps here. no money, little time and no ideas for gifts for the peeps i love.
i have an older boyfriend in his 40's who is the hardest person i can think of for a crafty based gift. hes into fishing, hunting, the outdoors in general. he is such a sweet guy and i want to wow him with my creative genius. i was thinking of a picnic backpak set with a few add ons, but that fell thru when i realised he has tons of camp gear already. .... what to do?
my mum is pretty simple. being the crafting goddess she is. she makes these awesome handbags...but my trouble is whatever i make for her is going to be juvenille compared to what she would make....shes the artsy-est mum around.
the old mans parents: my boyfriends parents are classic. in their 70's, have everything already....was thinking of foodie items , but that seems like a waste seeing as mum is cooking and baking. i really want to wow them and be original and that is the test...
(i cannot knit or crochet or anything)
and all thats left are a few little treats i would like to send thru the mail to my friends and family. i was thinking of little pouches of something (i can zip off the pouches quickly outta felt and stuff.) but what to put in them....
i know all you creative geniuses will be able to assist in my brain blockage.
oh! i should also add that my b/f used to play the bass for 30 odd years, and he sold it --wah-- he has never played for me and i constantly mention how i want him to pick it up again....maybe i could incorporate that into his gift??? i dunno...too much thinking i guess.
