12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: awkward get-well gift on: April 26, 2005 10:12:13 PM
i had surgery a couple of years back, and i got tons of coloring books and crossword puzzle books since i was kinda immobile for a few days.  i mean, i'm talking loads of the damn things.  they were a nice idea, but they were only fun for about...  an hour.  so i wouldn't suggest that. 

my sister and i just put together a care-package for a friend who is in the hospital in another state.  we decided that puzzle books were off-limits, haha.  so we went to the dollar store & wal-mart and bought some random & inexpensive items to take up her time.  an etch-a-sketch, a funny book, one of those paddleball things where the rubber ball is attached to the paddle with an elastic string...  anything that might entertain her for a few minutes.  then we sealed up the box with band-aids, lol.

we wanted to make her a photo-placemat (pretty paper + pictures of friends + iron-on laminating paper) to put under her yucky hospital food, but you didn't mention whether this guy ended up in the hospital or not.  (hope not!)

a bottle of coconut-scented suntan lotion or body spray?  i bought a purse-sized bottle of the body spray at wal-mart for $1 or so (in the bath & body aisle, if you're interested).  that scent always reminds me of summer.

i was thinking maybe a soft beach towel for touch, but if you're like me that doesn't count as inexpensive lol.

of course it's corny.  isn't that the reason it's so appealing?

i don't know if a hershey's kiss will fit in the tin you have in mind or not, but that would be cute.  um...  a picture of you two, or just yourself.  and what about a lipstick blot?  you know, put on too much red lipstick and kiss a piece of paper.  a flower petal from a bouquet he's given you (if you're that sentimental and he actually buys you flowers).  they're not stupendous ideas, but they're space fillers.  =)
16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / craft foam picture frame on: April 26, 2005 09:48:25 PM
i was awarded a, um, homely-looking picture frame at a baby shower a few weeks ago.  the poor thing was covered with wrinkled yellow paper and a wilted yellow ribbon.  so i gutted it down to the cardboard and covered it with craft foam.  yay!

i was going to cut off the extra black overhang, but i kinda like it.  

(sorry for the poor picture quality.  i kept having to back up thanks to my too-bright flash, so they ended up super grainy.)   Angry

i thought about that, but (sadly) i'm OUT of room for pictures.  seriously. 

however, a picture frame could make a cute gift for my sister (who's moving in to an apartment in june).  yay!

gracias!  the best part is that it matches my lime green walls.

i still have most of the placemat left, i need to think of something to do with it.   Huh
19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / my happy new mousepad on: April 25, 2005 04:16:23 PM
this is ridiculously simple, which is why i love it so much.  i tossed my ugly, straight-from-the-factory dell mousepad into the garbage and cut out a new one from a pretty placemat.  (thank you, dollar general!)
