First up, for my wonderful nieces I wanted something fun, that wasn't clothing (they both enjoy clothes so I buy them stuff fairly regularly and I wanted gifts that are a little different).
As you can see, I opted to make them personalised bunting! Megan loves blue and her room is pink, she also loves a more ordered look so I went for a simple theme for her. Charlotte is a little bit more free spirited so I used more colours and went for a more patched effect. I like both strings but I think Charlotte's would be my favourite if I had to chose!
For my husband's grandmother we've framed a picture I painted a while ago. I'm not overly gifted in the painting department, but it turns out I can run up an ink and water colour still life reasonably well!
It's the frame that makes a picture though, and I think my wonderful husband did a great job picking this one out!
