This past summer I bookmarked a project on A Merry Mishap on how to jazz up white porcelain dishware with a paint pen. Yes, as in those things you can buy for a few bucks at the craft store. Wouldn’t it be great to personalize a platter or large bowl with a design all your own for someone on your gift list? After completing your design you bake it in the oven at 300º for 35 minutes and presto change-o, instant one-of-a-kind.Posted In gifts, house and home, kitchen, make it
I’m only speaking for myself here, but my holiday budget is tighter this year than it’s been in some time. I’m talking pre-career. The nice thing about that is that it’s made me think about the gifts I’m giving even more than I normally would. Starting today I’ll be sharing some ideas for handcrafted gifts to make and give.
Sure, I could buy a friend a bottle of their favorite alcohol at the liquor store, but something homemade might be even better. And cost a little less. And be a little cooler, just think of all the bottling possibilities!Posted In christmas, cocktails, gifts, holidays, make it
As I previously mentioned, this year I’ve abandoned gift guides in favor of cool things. You can simply look at them, put them on your own wish list, or purchase one as a gift if it really fits someone’s style.Posted In accessories, christmas, food, gifts, him, holidays, house and home, kitchen, wear it
