Happy Holidays!  --sweets4ever






I think this is my first post on here. THat's crazy. I'm on here all the time. Haha

So every year, I either paint or draw my family something for Christmas. I actually want to MAKE them something this year, but I'm having a hard time deciding what. I already know what I'm doing for my mom and sister, but my dad, brother, and his wife, I'm clueless about

Mom- a music themed journal. I'm going to make the pages out of staff paper and bind it together with ribbon and/or a piano bag. She plays piano at church and has been using the same thing to carry her music in for a few years. It would be nice to make her something new and a bit more personalized.

Dad- a picture frame (probably wooden) with a picture of me and him taken at the Rockies and a poem inside the frame. He loves the mountains and lately we haven't been very close, so I thought it would be nice to write him a poem. Plus pulling out a picture of us at the Rockies would be sure to make him smile Smiley

Sister- make her skull and crossbone gloves.

Guy best friend - coffee themed journal/notebook. He loves coffee and he's a writer



My brother - He's in the air-force reserved, has two kids taht live with their mom in Illinois, re-married and has 3 stepchildren, he's an electrician, he loves planes and motorcycles, and is insanely patriotic

My brother's wife- I don't know much about her. She's new to the family, but she definately has her hands full with her kids. I was thinking something along the lines of a basket full of goodies, but what goodies, I don't know. Plus it has to be cheap. I'm a poor college student living 3 states away from everyone. So if the goodies are makeable and not buyable, that's even better.

My best friend- a girl who loves children, works at a daycare, loves audrey hepburn/marilyn monroe/vintage stuff. I've stenciled her things before so I kind of want to do something different, I have no idea what, though.
