Several months ago my husband asked me if I’d consider joining a bowling league.
I was shocked! We only bowled occasionally and my scores were pretty low. Before I talked myself out of it, I said yes!
We are 15 weeks into our league and I’ll tell you, I’ve made many new friends at the bowling alley. It’s a new-to-us place, 50 miles one way, but totally worth the drive.
With Christmas approaching quickly, I went to the craft store yesterday and picked up some items for making jewelry art gifts for the women bowlers there.
I’m going to start working on them today, but I thought I’d tell you what I have in mind and show you the supplies I got.
You know I love making trinket boxes, so I got some of those. They are very reasonably priced at 6 for $3.99.
Because I already know the women bowlers names, I got some sparkly letter stickers. I am going to put the initial to their first name on each box.
A while back I ordered some bowling pins without the pin backs on them. I’m going to glue them on the boxes.
I’m pretty excited about the scrapbook pad I found at the craft store. I always buy the same one, ha ha. This one is completely new to me. I’ll decoupage the paper onto the boxes before decorating them.
Lastly, Christmas items were 60-70% off, so I decided to get some things to wrap them in when finished. The bags are clear so they’ll be able to see their gift without having to open it right then. The stickers, clips, and ribbons will make fun accents.
What’s not pictured is the jewelry I’ll use. I still have to gather all my pieces and figure out how they’ll fit. That’s my favorite part- gluing the jewelry. Hopefully I can get them done today. I’m also going to make Christmas cookies and candy for the men league bowlers.
Hope you have a great Sunday!
P.S. My photos are a little different than usual. I took them last night in my kitchen (not the best light) and on my new vintage pink tablecloth. They’re not perfect, but I like them anyway. ❤️
