7 days of Christmas - day 2

Yay! Day 2 of 7 days of Christmas!

I've got quite a few cousins varying in ages and it can sometimes be hard to think of great, affordable presents to make or give them. Most of my male cousins are total geeks. What on earth do you get a geek that's in my price range!

I found these fabulous little notebooks on etsy from Finki and thought they were wonderful. The right price, funky, just what every geek needs! I have also found a couple of tutorials to make some little notebooks, all using recycled materials, so check this out and this out. But for the price, I will probably go for Finki's! Oh, and check out her blog too.

I have an almost 12 year old and female cousins ranging in ages from 17 to 37 and have wondered a bit on what to make them. Then I discovered scrabble tile pendants. How cool are these! Very affordable to make, especially if you are making in bulk. I found a tutorial here, and some great supplies here. Lots of etsy sellers have sheets of images already sized for you to cut out and put straight onto your pendants. Love it! You're bound to find the perfect image for the right person.

Still more to come on day 3, so check back tomorrow!
