First, there are the book shelves Hubby made for me. I mentioned in passing that I would like bookshelves for each side of the fireplace in my living room. When we originally built this house I was not interested in having built in shelving in there but after 10 years...I changed my mind. I didn't really expect to get my wish so soon but once again Hubby impressed me with his carpentry skills with the most unique set of book shelves I could ever ask for.
While I didn't know about the book shelves that were being made for me, I was making Hubby a little something for Christmas too. I am a water colorist and although I don't paint as much as I'd like to, I do love painting. I started a painting a while back for Hubby of a Native American astride a horse, looking down a snow covered hill at a herd of buffalo passing. Now, I chose this because of my husband's Native American heritage.
And finally, Caitlin's gift to her dad and me. She is really creative and always comes up with new ideas to gift us with. This year she came up with a gift I simply LOVE!
Holidays, birthdays and special occasions are so much fun around here. Especially when individuals give a little of themselves by creating something special. Think about it the next time you have to take a gift somewhere; consider giving something hand made and then watch the recipient's eyes light up when they open it.
