1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / need a gift idea for my dad on: December 10, 2011 12:23:39 PM
I need a gift idea for my dad for Christmas, he is in his 50's likes to work out, listen to music on his ipod, and i don't know what else.  i don't know what kinds of colors he likes.  he likes to read magazines.  my mom got him a nook color last year, but he hardly uses it.  he also likes sports, we live in Milwaukee, WI and so he is a huge packer, brewer, etc. fan.  he does not wear scarfs, and I already got him a hat before that he wears.  I'm not sure what type of style he has, but it is not a kitschy, crafty style.  I would like to make him something that he would like and actually use. I am low on funds this year and cannot afford to buy a gift so I have to make one. I can crochet, bead, do needlepoint, etc.

I made a bunch of earrings for my mother for Christmas.  I was going to post it for the contest, but I forgot.  I got a cookie tin and put them in it, I made one for each part of the tin.  Some I made from patterns and some I did freehand. unfortunately I didn't keep track of which were from patterns.
here they are all together:

here are all the earrings:










and i also made an earring holder from a frame I had laying around:

and here they are all together:

my mom was very impressed and thinks that I should start selling my jewelry.  what do you think? how do you like the earrings?  any constructive criticism would be apreciated

and here's the final result:

here's my first commissioned work, I made it for my grandma for $20. Grin It took me two sittings to make it. I learned the technique from a book and it was my second attempt at it. I think that it turned out really well.  Let me know what you think. sorry for the blurry pics hopefully I'll get a good camera soon.
