What we gave, Part 1

Santa was really too, too good to me this year. I received several very thoughtful gifts and my craft docket is full until about 2014. However, for both D and I, the joy of Christmas lies in seeing people open the gifts we’ve spent time scouring for or making ourselves. Here are a few of the gifts I gave this year in hopes of inspiring you for gift giving in 2010:

Vintage 1890 Rhubarb Lithograph (via etsy seller Bananastrudel who carries many MANY amazing prints ranging from architecture to botanicals)

POWER GRID. We are Serious game players around here, always on the lookout for the next late-night bout. I thought this game would be so fitting for Erik, my sailor man who just spent 2 years studying nuclear power. The best part is that Norfolk, his duty station, is on the power grid map, so when we’re playing without him we can put a little picture next to Norfolk and pretend he’s right here with us! Also, this game board is reversible, so its essentially 2 games in 1. score!

There were several other vintage and one-of-a-kind things that i of course forgot to take pictures of before i wrapped and gave away, but that gives you a good idea. D will be back with Part 2 and a lot more homemade gifties (she was QUITE the crafter this Christmas)
