My favorite gifts to give are homemade ones. As I was thinking of the sweet friends back in Illinois that I'm going to see soon I thought what better gift than a walk down memory lane. This picture of us is kind of old, but I remember taking it. Every single time we get together we do the same thing. Take a picture in the same spot. Usually on a bench at the mall. Cracks me up:) But you know what, I love our little routine. It's familiar and fun. Those trips to the mall are priceless to me...ha!
If you are struggling for a last minute gift idea this one is really simple. Just print out a favorite photo. I just used copy paper, and then sprayed it with a fixative to insure that it wouldn't smear. Next decorate a canvas however you want. I used a wide canvas so it would sit up on it's own. Then just slap some Mod Podge or glue on the back and front and voila. Instant photo art:)
I also made some memory verse magnets. I'm thinking of selling some of these in my shop. I know personally I need to surround myself with His word!
And there you have it. A sweet walk down memory lane...all tied up with a bow:) Hopefully they'll just skip reading this post;) Total spoiler alert!
Have a blessed day.
