Gift Idea - Watercolor Paintings
My hubby's birthday is August 25th. It is such a mile marker for me because once his birthday is here - I blink and it is Christmas. No kidding! I'm always amazed how quickly time flies the rest of the year.
So, the way I look at it - Christmas is next week and I've got lots of gifts to get!
I think a wonderful gift I would like to give would be a watercolor of something special for someone I love. The only problem is - I can't do watercolor......
No worries in this techy age. There is an app out there called Waterlogue that turns your pictures into watercolor paintings. It is such a fun, fun app - you've got to try it.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Wouldn't it make a nice gift for your neighbors
to photograph their homes?
This is my grand daughter sitting on the floor in
Target reading books. I think this is a gift to me.
This is an oil rig, and it happens to be one my 18 year
old son helped to build this summer. What a great giftfor a guy who has everything - a painting of his workplace,
or maybe a favorite sports stadium.
I hope this will give you some good ideas for getting your Christmas gift giving season started. Handmade gifts are so much more personal and special. I don't know about you, but I would love a watercolor painting like this.
