Who's ready for Christmas?! Now that I finished making this last minute gift and painted some candy cane nails, I'm ready to go!
Bring it on, Saint Nick!
Ok, if you are not feeling so confident and you want to add more gifts to your pile under the tree, I have some fun ideas for you :)
If you have an old board game around the house, personalize it! Change the addresses on Monopoly to addresses in your neighborhood, put your family's pictures on the Life game pieces, whatever. Figure out how to make it more fun.
And it's totally free! Yipee!!!!!
Sorry, I got a little excited there. What can I say, I like free stuff.
My nephew love love loves Guess Who? and will wear it out given the chance (by the way, he has noticed it is missing already).
Personally, I'm tired of seeing Maria's smug look and green beret. I mean, really, who wears a green beret. Maybe a raspberry beret...but green? I think not.
I chose 24 pictures and made a grid collage in Picasa (it's a free photo editor--Google it) and printed it. Then I cut the pictures out using the Guess Who? cards as a template. They are 1 1/2" wide X 2" tall.
Print 3 copies of your collage and glue stick them to the 2 sets of little cards that go in the holder or just make new cards if you don't want to mess up the old cards. Also, you'll have to glue pics on the old game cards that you choose to find out who your "person" is (the yellow cards in below pic).
If you have more than 24 people to include, you can make extra cards and switch them out periodically or group people together (like couples).
So cool--I cannot wait to give it to him!
If you are not into cutting and pasting, I also have been making some quick teddy bears using an old pair of corduroy pants that would make great stocking stuffers.
Made them using this pattern from Bev's Country Cottage
