The holiday season often becomes a time for gift-giving. One of the traditions that my fella and I started to embrace was the idea of giving time and adventures (aka super-dates) to one another instead of simply giving items that we could either buy ourselves or would forget about in the future. Don’t get me wrong; we give each other presents all the time. In fact, last night I came home from my first day back to work to some hyacinth bulbs! And, it isn’t like we’ve never given each other Christmas gifts but this year there was so much going on with the wedding… and with buying stuff related to it… that we opted to take some time for ourselves.
If you’re like me, you probably have some relatives who give you gifts that just aren’t you. And, there are some gifts that are *sorta* right. For example, these super warm Isotoner Hoodback Clog Slippers. They are black which is a plus but they’re a little too lodge-wear for my taste. So this morning I did a little DIY project. All you need is a glue gun, scissors, and ribbon of your choice. I opted for a ribbon that looks like metal studs because I had it around the house for a previous DIY project (that I haven’t gotten to just yet). Basically, I took the ribbon and placed it over the log cabiny ribbon that the slippers came with. I cut it to size. Then I simply used a glue gun to attach the new studdy ribbon. Ta Da!
