DAY 14 - 25DAYS of Christmas Gifties or Stocking Stuffers

DAY 14 -  Tile Craft Wall Deco for a Special friend

Oh boy! Please excuse my posting for today. I am having the sneezles and runnies and have taken some meds. Never thought they would take effect so quickly! Lol.

If you find my post trailing off suddenly....you know why :P

Anyhow, while waiting for the meds to take effect, I wanted to make a very dear friend of mine a special Christmas gift.

And I found and love what WordArtWednesdays have! They have really beautiful Bible Sayings which I will put to good use later.

So, I decided to make a Tile Art Deco, so my dear friend could hang it up and also pray that the words will encourage her daily.

My printer ran out of ink, so I had to write them. Sorry if it looks messy! :)

Here's what I did and will be entering for Challenge #55 - Anything Goes.

Have an awesome day! Zzzzz....off to Lala-land....

DAY 13- 25DAYS of Christmas Gifties or Stocking Stuffers

DAY 13 - Recycled Gifts (Part 1)

Today, I've decided to do something a lil different. I went round looking for stuffs to recycle and guess what caught my eyes?

A Shampoo bottle! :)

Do you know anyone who always misplaces their stuffs? I do. My hubby! Lol. He's always looking for his "Eyes" and car keys...or house keys...whatever! So, you get my picture. He loves to put his stuffs everywhere and then come looking for them! :P

So I have decided, this would be a great gift for him! A Recycled Shampoo Holder.

I have almost made a Tutorial on it here.

Have fun! *hugs*

Meanwhile, it's back to my crafting gifties. Creating something at the moment. While unfold it when I am done!

DAY 11 - A DIY Kindle Cover. An Awesome gift for a teenager!

If you are an avid reader like me, you will definitely love this. I have loads of books. My 3 girls love reading too. So put our books together, I think we can actually start a mini library of our own! :)

But I have recently given quite a fair bit of our books to a good cause.

Anyhow, I have kept some for my craft purposes. And here's one awesome example of what I did:

Want to know more? I have also created a TUTORIAL on it. Check it out here.

So, If you are looking and thinking of what to get a Teeny Bopper for a gift this christmas...this would be good ;)

Hmm...Come to think of it, I might even do one for my nieces! :P

Have a Blessed weekend!
