|Our mini Christmas tree|
This year I've been making a lot of the gifts that I'll be giving. And several of them came from Pinspiration (Pinterest inspiration). Of course, since Christmas isn't here yet, I can't post about all of the gifts I've made, but there is one I've already given.
I love working with my hands, and I also love graphic design. So putting those two together, I created a plaque of a favorite Scripture passage (1 Thess. 5:16-18) using - yes, you probably guessed it - wood from used pallets. This gift I gave away at a ladies' Christmas party (a white elephant/dirty santa gift exchange), and it was much wanted. I'm glad, because it took 3-4 hours to make - but it was well worth it!
|I forgot to take one last photo before I wrapped it. So, alas, no photo of the finished product.|

So... You'll just have to wait until after Christmas to see what were the other gifts that I made. (Sorry to keep you in suspense. ;) )
