Hey everyone!!! I am in desperate need of help finding a gift for a friend. I didn't think we were exchanging presents this year, but apparently we are. Here's some info about her:

She's 25 and studying physics at UC Berkeley. She loves to run. She parties and drinks a bunch. She loves to knit, although she hasn't knit anything in awhile. She used to be a project manager for Habitat for Humanity, so she's very handy. She adores Rosie the Riveter and Wonderwoman. She's loud and has the most infectious laugh you will ever hear. She's tall like an Amazon woman. She has had a really rough time the past 10 years with her health (she has lupus). I'm thinking of a gift that is a pick-me-up kind of thing. Oh, and she has her first real apartment of all time now. She has her first kitchen and living room instead of just a bedroom. We've been best friends for 8 years and she is always the hardest person to buy gifts for.

So far I'm thinking of making her a Rosie the Riveter devotion candle. I'm stumped after that. I need to make sure she can fit it in a suitcase. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks guys and Happy Crafting!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Does she have an Ipod or mp3 player or other music player for running with?  I would make a holder of some kind for that - arm band, waist band whatever to make it hands free.  Also, what about makind something like a pair of knitted, or fleece mitts that has a small flap pocket with button closure) on the outside surface so that she can carry her key, and maybe a small amount of cash when she is running - no pockets, bag to worry about.  Wonder woman earwarmer headband, maybe make cuffs on mittens to match.

Something for her home, like a framed collage or shadowbox of pics and treasured items from things the two of you have done together - or a scrap book.

"just keep crafting, just keep crafting"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I LOVE the idea of an ipod case. Hmm...gotta figure out which kind she has. I can totally make it a Wonder Woman one as well. I also think I'm going to decorate this wooden mirror frame with pictures of us and inspirational messages. Thanks for the ideas!!!

she sounds like a feminist. i dont know if she is, but i love those shirts that say "this is what a feminist looks like". they seem easy to make, basically just stencil it.

I ADORE that idea! I've made us several t-shirts already with funny phrases from our friendship so I know she will appreciate that one! Thanks a bunch!

If you stencil why not stencil her a Rosie the Riveter or Wonder Woman pillow cover which would easily fit into a suitcase.
