HollyBearsMom - Ahhh okay, gotcha. I did make some labels for his brother's "Bananahol" (Banana skin wine - WORST WINE EVER.) on a Andy Warhol theme that they both when blitz for. That will have to be an idea for when I have a bit more time, though. (And have my computer with Photoshop on it up and running ) I think I will be filing this under his Christmas folder. By then he should have a few beers made, too, and it would be cool to label and wrap up a 6 pack for him to open, and then let him open the rest of the labels.
I would love those recipes, if you wouldn't mind either posting or PMing them. I'm thinking Father's Day on that one, thanks for taking care of my next two DH gifts!
Bonjourmama - Thanks! I will bookmark those, too.
Neva - Hmm, that gives me some ideas to work off of, if I can find some faux leather (I'm sure there's gotta be some) but, argh, needs more time. Maybe I can work on this idea for father's day, too, the glasses and homemade liquor would make such a cool gift. Also, I would totally kill to have a glass etching kit! I will have to look into them, I have only used really big blasting stations. I made the coolest stein once that I did in by leaving it on the keyboard tray. When the keyboard tray got bumped, the tray slid in, and *smash*! I have a feeling they're on the "too much money right now" list, though, as well as any beer glasses he'd want, etched or not. I am so sick of money and lack there of.
I should have asked you guys weeks ago! I've been agonizing over trying to figure something out, and then turned to this forum with only a few days left. Now it is the day before! All of these are fantastic ideas, but all take longer than I had, especially since most of my time goes to taking care of a toddler and an infant. If I actually had a few days to sit down and concentrate on something... *dreams*
What I am ending up doing - I know I totally said this was not an option, but I am making him a wallet. I'd made him a duct tape wallet for his birthday last year embroider with the Horde symbol from WoW (Here it is! There is one picture before and two pictures after this one, too) Well, I snuck a peak at it and the thing is positively going ooey gooey. I'm making him a cloth one (I HOPE I can get it done while he's at work today...) on the same theme as his cake, with a classic mario bros. 1up mushroom on it. And I'm going to the health food store today to pick up a wooden handled shaving brush and shea butter and DD1 and I will make him some shaving soap today, I think he would really like that. I'll try to update when I get the chance, thank you!
