~* an awesome homemade gift*~

 So I asked my dad to make me this planter box for my centerpiece. I got the directions online and emailed them to him (they are not good finding things online, but do email!). 
 I gave it a quick dressing for fall. I loved it so much and it means to much to me that my dad made it for me. I've wanted one for some time and was just too busy to make one myself, so I thought this would be a good project for my dad. He is getting older and without planned events, he just sits around watching TV or eating. I want him to keep his mind sharp and keep him doing stuff.
 So now it is dressed up for Christmas! I love it! I am so happy with the way it turned out and how awesome it looks on my dining room table.  
I can't wait for my parents to come over for Christmas breakfast so that my dad can see how special his homemade gift to me is. 
I made most of my gifts this year. It was really fun and affordable to make gifts for all my family members. It made me really feel the real meaning behind gift giving.
Have a great day!
