     I had a small dilemma for christmas presents for all my friends.  I needed 6 presents that were cheap, not crappy.  You know, something that says "I'm awesome and Cassandra rocks for getting me" rather than "Cassandra is a cheapskate and got you a cheap present"
     So, in a recent cleaning of my room, I realized that I had a lot of left over supplies from my previous adventures in Craftland.  These things included, a giant bottle of etching cream, some LPs, and a bunch of glycerin soap making stuff I had recently bought.  Noting these treasures, a diabolical idea began forming in my head.
    Thus, a gift basket supreme was created.




What is in it:
1.  LP Bowl
2.  Etched Glass
3.  2 bars of Glycerin Soap
4.  10 Make Pie Not War Skickers
5.  1 Slinky Jr.

Time it took:
A couple hours, I multitasked with the etching, soap, and bowls.

Cost:
$10.00
----$5.00 for a new set of glasses to etch
----$5.00 for the Slinky Jr. (They were $1 each at Target)
Everything else I had bought previously and was sitting in my room waiting to be melded into something more fabulous.  The stickers I made in my Intro. to DTP and Printing class, so I got to design and make them at no cost.

I looooove to get a present that someone spent time thinking about, making or putting together. This gift would mean more to me than a generic gift that cost more. I don't think that it is cheap at all.
Lucky friends!

The slinky becuase everyone loves a slinky and they were only a dollar and the sticker because I designed and printed about 160 of them for a class and had nothing better to do with them.  I'm sure as hell not going to be able to find 160 different things to stick stickers to.
