Here's another present that I can finally share now that the holidays and wedding festivities are over.
This little present was for a precious OCD toddler in our family who loves to collect and organize sticks. Kooky, yes, but oh-so-adorable! What better gift than his own gme of pick up sticks?
I painted a bunch of wooden skewers in a rainbow of acrylic paint (he's a toddler, not an infant, so I wasn't too worried about him dying from chewing on paint sticks) and snipped off the sharp ends. I painted a box I had on hand with black India ink (one of my favorite art supplies) and forced my baby to put her painted hand print all over the box. She was a good sport, for the most part.
This is one present I NAILED this year. Heck yes! I love it when you know you've given someone the perfect gift! That is the ultimate payoff. You have to know the person really well and pay attention to the little likes and dislikes in order to rock it in the gift-giving world. So, have you ever nailed it when giving someone a gift? I'd love to hear about it!
