I was sitting around the house thinking to myself that there's not much to do in the middle of November, and then it hit me: oh crap! It's November! Christmas is on it's way. And this year I have to make all of my gifts because my boyfriend recently lost his job. There's no time! What in the world am I going to do? I need to think of gifts to make for everyone.
And now I'm surfing the net trying to find ideas for gifts for the most important people in my life and I'm drawing a complete blank. Thought maybe we could try helping each other come up with ideas for the people on our Christmas lists. So make a short list of the people on your Christmas list, their interests and what kind of crafts you specialize in or prefer to use. Here's mine:
1. Boyfriend: Loves nerdy things in general. Anything Final Fantasy related. Plays a lot of video games. Likes ninjas. Like I said, he lost his job recently. He's at home constantly, so I'm going to need to hide what I'm doing from him. Possibly something I can take on the bus/to the bookstore.
2. Roommate: I want to make sure I make something nice for him because we recently had a falling out and I still feel bad about it. Is obsessed with Resident Evil, zombies in general, Zelda, Metallica, Cthulu and cephalopods in general.
3. Gal pal: Likes cats, comic books, very colorful stuff. She is also a crafter so anything I make needs to be of high quality.
4. Friend/Coworker: Owns cats and fish. Awkward, but not really nerdy. Really likes penguins. Too bad I can't crochet him a girlfriend.
These are the most important ones, I suppose.
My preferred mediums: crochet and polymer clay.
Post yours! I'll do my best to help.
