    for Christmas gifts this year??

    I'm making altered CD's as ornaments, altered letters for my nieces and altered glass blocks and wine bottles with lights.

    So what are you making?

    Sam, you use a special diamond drill bits and put holes in them. Then you put strings of minature lights in and decorate. I'm wrapping ribbon around the glass blocks like tying a package and decorating the top with a bow and christmas picks. Some people paint the flat sides. When I get them completed, I'll try to post some photos, If I can figure out how.

    This isn't really a Christmas gift, but for stocking stuffers for all four of my DD's I'm making them a bunch of cut outs on my Wishblade to use on their scrapbook pages. They all scrap and I already asked one DD and she was really thrilled with the idea.

    Since I have been subbing in the lunchroom we go through tons of those big cans of food so I wash them and bring them home. I have been using paint, scrapbook paper and ribbon to decorate them and I am going to fill the inside up with different goodies and give them as gifts for the boys school and sunday school teachers. I am making the snowmwen hats out of big marshmellows and Oreo's, the white chocolate dipped preztel's, the rice krispie half dipped in chocolate, ect.

    I posted pictures under altered items. A really cool one (will post picture when done) I am working on now is a fishing theme. We have a guy that comes in during lunch service and keeps the tables clean and empties our trash--he loves to fish. So we thought he would like that filled with fishing supplies. Maybe I will get it done tonight and post it.
