Christmas this year was a real celebration in non-materialistic home-made gift giving. I only bought two gifts – a board game (Balloon Cup) for Emily’s mom and a CD (Dan Mangan) for a work gift exchange. The rest of the gifts had to be home-made, which stretched my limited creative abilities. For a friend, I made bike helmet ear muffs and a board game themed cork board. For my mother, I made snow globes. For Emily’s family I made putty cat poppers (cat nip laced treats).
Instead of gift giving, Christmas focused on family and food. What a lovely combination. And loads of board games, snowboarding, and a big bonfire.
Porter, were you Santa? You might need some extra pillows for padding. hehehe.
Wow! what did the ear muffs look like?
I am not Santa.
I’ll try to find a picture of the ear muffs. You can kind of see them in this one: http://picasaweb.google.ca/orbilini/NotSoSecretSantaParty#5415348385413535906
I still want to finish a pair for Emily and for myself, so I’ll take a picture of that.
