Herrow dear T-Central Fellows!
So I wanted to go and visit my Dad around my Birthday for a Change and I thought I could bring them X-Mas Gifts, while I am there just so shortly before X-Mas. "Them" would be my Dad, his Girlfriend and my Half-Sister.
So I worked on the Gift for my Half-Sister, which I finished in 1 Week of Work. I used "Crochet" Technique to do it, even tho I have never done a Bag or Anything like that before. Just straight Cords. It turned out very nice (Pics are HERE in Case you wanna see). I packed the Bag with some Hello Kitty Stuff to round it up. She is at School-Age BTW.
I still need to make the Keychain for the Strap. Will do it tomorrow or the Day after.
Then I did or still do the Gift for my Dad's GF. I am making a wooden Jewel-Box for her, which is "filled" with soft Cloth on the Inside. Also I will decorate it with some shiny Gems and Stuff. On the Inside I will back selfmade Bathsalt and a selfmade Jar of Salve. It is coming great after working on it the whole Day. Will make Pictures within the next Days.
So now, while those Gifts were in my Head since the very Beginning when I had the Gift-Idea...I was thinking about Stuff for my Dad. First I wanted to make him a Portrait with a self-crafted Frame. Then I thought about a self-crafted Mouse-Pad. The Problem is...when comparing with the Things I made "for the Girls" it feels wrong in so many Ways. I worked on Jennis Gift for a Week, on Daisies for 2 or 3 Days in the End and for him it would be only a few Hours? Not right. But I can't think of Anything.
He is 44 Years old, loves Computer and Tech Stuff as well as his Family. He is a Security Guard and yeah...I am just not sure what to give him.
The Thing is, he lives in Italy, so some Things already dun work. Also it has to be Something I can transport in the Train. =/
The other Thing is...I have last seen him 2 Years ago, before that I didn't see him for 10 Years! And in that Time I never had the Chance to give him any Gifts. Not for X-Mas, not for B-Day. So a Portrait looks "cheap".
Now...does Anyone have a decent Idea of Something I could craft until Dec 7th? I am pretty good at almost Everything that has to do with Handcrafting and such, so that should be no Problem.
(Gee, sorry for the long Pre-Talk. But I want you to understand the Problem better)
