15 days until…

Idea #6

Take some photos of the family to give as gifts.

Grandparents and other close relatives LOVE pictures of their adorable grandkids. Its especially nice today… well, its nice and snowy, but you know what I mean, so today would be a great day to go outside and have a friend take pictures of you!

You could go to one of the craft stores and buy an inexpensive frame and paint it really nice, making the present even more personal. Or you could try something a little different and get some tissue paper and (slightly) watered down glue and decoupage the frame.
