Call me cheap but I will be sharing with you gifts I am making that cost me next to nothing. With my financials being the way they are I am having to really stretch my dollar this holiday season and use items I already have on hand. The first gift I want to share cost me actually nothing to make because I salvaged the frame from the garbage and already had the chalkboard paint. If you don't have any on hand Walmart carries it for under $5.00, or you could maybe get it cheaper with a Micheal's coupon. I love this chalkboard paint because you can use on wood, metal, glass, etc.
The frame is made from....you know I actually can't think of the exact name for it but a house marker where you put your street number. I love how it turned out. The natural patina on it is what made me love it so. It might just be a gift to myself.
I am heart broken this week our shar-pei Mocha passed away. She was 16. Two more years and she could have contended with the oldest living shar-pei. But she was so sick her liver, kidneys, heart. Then yesterday she suffered a stroke and went paralyzed in her hind legs. It was the most heart wrenching thing to witness. Thankfully my mom and I didn't have any kids at the daycare when it happened so we were both able to go to the vet to be with her. I am feeling so guilty on top of it because I went through the last two years of pictures and couldn't find a single one of her, none the less she was loved deeply.
I wish for everyone to have a beautiful weekend~
