Making Christmas gifts . . .

Since hubby lost his job last month, I am making all my Christmas gifts.  I love doing crafts of all kinds and so I have a variety of things I'm doing.  

One project is that I found some wooden picture frames at the craft store - they are square shaped and about 8 x 8 in size.  I also found saying like, "hope," "relax," "dream," "smile," and a couple others.  So, for the ladies I work with, I'm making the frames by painting them all the same off white color.  Then I am painting each of the sayings in a different color and finding rub-on stickers that match the theme of that saying and that will be my gift to everyone.  There are 13 people at work I exchange with - and it will only cost $3 per frame.  

Do you have any things you're making for Christmas!?

Well I want to oil paint a portrait of my bf and I as his gift along with whatever else I can figure out he wants.

The canvas i'm working on is 80 x 100 cm. Still small but yet big for the time frame I have. Plus I can always snatch it back and work on it after I present it to him. He won't mind. lol

I'm sort of enjoying it. It's been so long since I've picked up any art related stuff - since January gasp.

I just hope it turns out ok :D

Oh I was gonna say.. not many people make Christmas gifts but I think this year a lot of people might.
