A Couple Quick Gifts

I was trying to come up with a gift for my Granddad. He doesn't need anything, doesn't really use most of the stuff he gets, and is just generally a tougher one to get something for.

So this is what I came up with - simple, funtional, and with the pic of two of his great-grandkids, it's cute too!

I used a 5x7 acrylic frame. And I found the calendar at Split Coast Stampers. I think he will really like this.

My husband really liked it and had a great idea. He suggested I make one for his Dad to go in his truck. He drives a big lumber truck all day, and he keeps a calendar up on his dash. So hubby suggested I just add a velcro strip to the bottom, so he could put this there. What a smart man I married!

I made this one in the 4x6 size so it would sit on his dash better. I know without a doubt he's going to like this!

Hi-I just love your craft corner! That is a great idea for your grandad-What a cute photo of the kids. Now he can look at the calendar and his Grand-kids while he is driving his truck or taking a break! I visit often but this is my first time leaving a comment. Blessings, Rose

Hi Jennifer-the daughter that loves Mrs.Beasley is Junia-she just turned 7years old on halloween. She picked up the garter stitch a couple of months ago and has taken off with it! I started her with pencils when she was little-if that is any help-I don't know. She loves to copy what her older sisters are doing-that's the secret-I think. Thank you for visiting, Rose
