Like many people, my family and friends are at a point in our lives where we have all we need and don't need stuff. Of course, that means thoughtful gift ideas are hard to come by this time of year.
Given my terminal cancer situation, my family has hinted that they'd like me to make them things so they can have something personal when I am gone.
Today, I obliged.
I made Star Wars Christmas ornaments for my sister out of salt dough and think they turned out fairly well!
I followed the recipe and instructions here:
Other than the cookie cutters ($10), this was a super cheap project, as I already have the acrylic paint.
I also did small (6x8) paintings of me and my best lady friends to give them as gifts. Drawing people isn't really my specialty, but these paintings kind of sum us up in a cartoon way. I hope they like them. Pardon the picture quality, as they're already framed in glass.
I also make almond poppy seed bread for all of my neighbors. It's super easy and delicious.
