Christmas Gift Idea.. Getting Crafty

Standard

If you’re like me… ME = Loves XMAS. Loves giving, BUT on a limited budget this year…

THEN

You, my friends, are in for a treat.

In order for this to work, I guess the need for a crafty person should be thrown in to the mix..

I saw this idea (and some other awesome ideas) at this blog.

I’m planning on making these calendars for gifts this Christmas!

To begin this wonderful creative and crafty journey, I headed to JoAnne Fabrics, but to my disappoint they only had four of the wooden cubes, and they were only an inch on each side. Grrrr

BUT, since I truly believe in making lemonade outta lemons, I decided to give it a go.

I ended up making these adorable (well, I think they’re adorable) cubes that have my God Daughter’s name and birth year on them.

So let me know what you think.

I’m going to order the wooden cubes online because I don’t think any of the craft stores near me sell them, but then I’m going to give these calendar ones ago.

I HAD THIS MARTINI LAST NIGHT FROM SAGA SUSHI AND STEAKHOUSE..I CALL IT THE PUM-KINI.  PRETTY GOOD EVEN THOUGH JUST ONE COST THE SAME PRICE AS HALF OF OUR DINNER BILL.
