This year, our large extended family have decided to not buy any gifts for each other and to make them all. I love this idea and have made jewelry, a poem journal and am working on some magnets. Now my only trouble is what to make for my cousin Lan. He is almost fifteen years old and hasn't been to pleased with previous gifts.
I have two teenage brothers and a goal to make their Christmas presents this year. They share a room we call the 'man cave' so I'm working on a sign they can put over their door or something. I'm just spray painting a long piece of wood (you could use heavy paper, canvas...whatever). I'm going to arrange stencils to spell out 'man cave' and then spray paint over that white or black...haven't decide yet.

I made I picture collage of him and I can't decide what to do with it. I put it in a white picture frame and I was going to put inside jokes on the frame, but I don't know anymore.What should I do?
It is lovely the way it is. Include a sweet letter or poem.
I love it! If you think it needs more, maybe write your name and hearts around the frame using color sharpies. I think it is sweet as is, but you need to love it!! Post back what you decide!
