When I was Nine I made a pretty ugly clock for my dad's garage...  He is always working in his "man cave" on furniture, clocks, his MG TC or other various projects.  So for Christmas this year I decided to upgrade his childish time piece into something a little more... Grown Up. 

I bought a plain clock from Lowe's Hardware and a scrapbook paper kit from wal*mart and voila!

"Bruce's Workshop"

While checking out they had Christmas Cacti on sale, so I bought one and spiffied it up:
