Mug Shots

I've been away in Albany New York
for some serious R&R at my BFF's country house.
While I've been up here braving the cold,
my children have been doing some...
Take for instance this thrift store tiki.
Please...take this thrift store tiki.
Samwow actually needed a movie prop, so he bought the weird thing
for two bucks, then broke into my primer.
Not that this is helping.
The effect may be the exact opposite.
So we'll break out the metallic gold next.
Two coats later, and we have a golden idol for his next big production,
a music video with a zombie apocalypse theme.
Sometimes, I just don't ask.
However, with Dollar Tree white coffee cups, painter's tape, and chalkboard paint,
Savannah managed to pull off graduation gifts for all of her uber
bright friends heading on to their last two years of college.
Simply put painter's tape around the rim, handle and base,
pressing firmly into place.
Turn the cup upside down, and two coats later,
you have a caffeine container that will express an insomniac
chem major's true feelings.

A few sticks of colorful chalk tied with ribbon and
 tucked in before wrapping complete the gift.
And really, what kid doesn't enjoy endlessly personalizing their stuff?
This has been another strange gift idea from the team at LIR.

Yes, yes, I'll be home soon.

You look great! Hope you had fun in the chilly NY weather!!! Your kids are a creative bunch, no surprise! Love the tiki and the mugs are awesome! Cute gift idea!

Both of those are fabulous. What a cool gift for a college-bound, jaded, hard-to-shop-for kid. Savannah is a genius! Totally need to see Samwow's film with evil tiki.
