A Crafty Gift

During the fall, our women at church did a Secret Sister gift exchange. We were matched up anonymously, and brought small gifts to church for each other twice a month. At the beginning of December, we had a party to wrap up the program, and to reveal the matches. We called the program "LIFE Givers," with LIFE standing for "Love Is For Everyone."

I was bringing gifts to a friend whose last name is Mullens. I found a blank tin wall hanger-thingy (already painted red with a white border), picked up some green paint and a silver metallic pen, and also purchased a neat little Christmas tree rhinestone sticker. Here's the finished product!

My friend opened it and said, "I love it!" Whew! It's always great when a handmade gift is well-received!

That is such a lovely idea - I love stories of turning something, any ordinary thing into a piece of art, better yet when it's a gift!
