This year we made Christmas presents. It was a fun project and I was amazed by the final products of what we gave and received.
Chris had an idea of building a Tardis (from Doctor Who) box. So he tried his hand at woodworking. And after many hours using hand tools to chisel door panels, we got some electronic tools that sped the job up a bit. The result is a spectacular box and now I've requested that Chris make me one too.
For my part, I knit a purse and made a quilt.
And I tried my hand at glass etching.
It's really easy. You just need to get a special glass etching solution. Then you take contact paper, trace what you want to put on the glass (I used a stencil) and cut it out with an exacto knife. Then carefully remove the backing and stick it on the glass, being careful to smooth out any bumps. The glass etching stuff goes on the holes you made in the contact paper, and then you wash it off a few minutes later. That's all there is to it.
With all these Christmas presents, Loki didn't help at all. However, she was very happy when she got homemade dog biscuits on Christmas day.
