Oh that's a great idea! No, she's totally into drawing & she's a wonderful writer.

So I did the stuffed whale and mine is kind of poopy, haha! I messed up on the calculations and well, it does have sort of a cuteish handmade look to it I suppose. hehe. Well I am thinking of also making her a bookmark and then I might do the scrapbook/friendship book thing only I was thinking maybe I should make my own little booklet and decorate it. Then i wont feel obligated to fill it up and then she wont feel like shes ruining it if she sketches or writes in it. (thats how I would feel if it were given to me, anyhow haha)

Well I feel dumb cause all i have so far is a bunch of little stuff. Aside from the book I'm going to make, anyways.
Well maybe I could pop by Boo Radley's [our favorite locally owned gift shop<3] and get her a book or some novelty item that she loves. hehe maybe theres something whale-y there!

Oh awesome! Im stupid, I didnt even think of searching for whale. ehhh. I like that first whale, maybe I can try and do that...Im not sure how my hand sewing is,the last time i tried it wasnt so good but i was rushing so i dont know, but I can attempt it. Maybe that whale on a smaller scale would work better for me since i have to hand sew it
Well yesterday I made her a sculpey whale & a toggle bracelet made of some beautiful glass beads, I made it a rainbow. :]
I also did her card, so that's out of the way.
I'm thinking that even though I made the sculpey whale, I might make her the stuffie too. oh, I could put a keyring on it and I could give it to her as a keychain!
But thats enough whale stuff, haha, her card is even whale themed! But I do know she loves whales so I know shell just love this.

I'd like to make her the book/journal thing but I'm not really sure how'd I go about doing that. I wouldnt be able to fill up the entire thing with stuff because generally speaking, journals and blank books and the like are filled with at least 50 pages. and if I didnt fill it up with stuff I'd feel silly giving her a half-empty journal.

oh, more great ideas! thanks Fudgegirl!

I updated the main post, I posted a list of a few things I am kind of good at. I like the whale stuffy idea, does anyone have a pattern for a whale stuffed animal?

Thanks so much, meanderingartist!
That's a great idea!

Does anyone else have more ideas? I feel like spoiling her and showering her in gifts this year since I've given her small presents lately. I don't even think I got her anything for Christmas. Eek!

So my friend Marnie's birthday is coming up (the 23rd) and I have nooo idea what to make for her!
I don't want to buy anything because basically I dont know WHAT to buy her, and anything I would buy for her I would probably be better off making it for her. Also I have no money..Hehe.
So I'm hoping this is the right forum. Considering I've only been browsing since I've joined and this is my first post, I wouldnt be surprised.
But anyways, maybe you guys could help me with some ideas?
Should I tell you about her, maybe?

She's my bestest friend ever.
She's a lesbian.
Lover of rainbows.
Her fav. animals are whales.
Her second fav. animals are platypi.
Her and I are obsessed with Germany.
She loves cute stuff.
We have so so so so sooo many inside jokes.

Need any more information?

edit: I can sew a little [my sewing machine is broken though so i'd have to hand sew]
I have sculpey clay and im ok at sculpting.
I can draw but im kind of no good at painting.
I can do other stuff do i guess. Just suggest and I guess I can say whether or not I can do it. haha.

once you get into the rhythm, they're cake to care for. being exotic, you can't have them in a lot of places (my old apartment complex for one) and there are a few weirdnesses as far as feeding is concerned but its really not rocket science. they require a lot more attention than hamsters, so maybe you should hold off on a glider until you've mastered the hamster.  Wink

that sucks.
i LOVE animals. but im so lazy/bad at taking care of them, they often dont love me back. :C
