homemade gifts: notepads

inspired by this diy project at Design Sponge

Time to think about Christmas gifts! I hardly have the time (who does?!) but handmade is so much fun to give away. Especially little notepads which are handy for most everyone. Think scrap paper, recycled chipboard (cereal, pop tart, cracker boxes), twine, staples . . .

Usually the kids are the only ones having fun with paint, but not this time. It's been way too long since I've used watercolor. Always something else needs to be done. But sometimes I just need half an hour to make something without a purpose; something meant only for fun.
