Making presents

Every year for Christmas, instead of buying presents (with the exception being the relatives under 18 - because I don't want to die yet), we make things and donate money to charities that we like.

That said, the presents are never boring.

I have painted ornaments...



Cross-stitched bookmarks...


and made custom signs.



And I've made more traditional ornaments for my more conservative relatives.






Mr. RK tried to make an ornament hanger, but it looked a bit funny:





Anyone want to come make presents with us this year? :)

PS This was, coincidentally, post #666.

Jeannie said...

I really love the ornaments. My sentiments exactly.

You are so totally creative. Post 666? Yeah, being a Christian, I would have to delete that one. Oh - have you ever thought to do a BITE ME ornament? I really liked the first ornament. Chocolate color....shiny. Peace.

Riot Kitty said...

Darth: Believe it or not, that was a total accident! I was the one who pointed out that it looked, uh, strange.
J: HAHA! Thanks :)
MC: That is a great idea! I don't put stock in #s, I just happened to notice when I posted.

Lynn said...

That last one cracked me up. :)

Huh, remember. I told you Mr RK was doing something with sex jelly. Ornament hanger my fanny! Actually, please don't put that thing near my fanny. That's not my bag.

It is dangerous to enter here in the 666th post. Brings to mind that old Christmas expression, "You better watch out!"

LL Cool Joe said...

If you'd put the ornament hanger with the painted balls above it would have been far from conservative. ;)

Riot Kitty said...

L: I started laughing the minute I saw it. He didn't get it for a moment, but I made him save it for posterity.
WIGSF: I know, right? ;) We were just talking about the homemade sex robot last night.
S: That would be great to meet! You are such a jet setter, let me know if you come out this way.
GA: Seriously...although I don't know how to avoid it. If I deleted this post, the next one would be tagged 666 too. Santa Claus is coming to town!
Joey: What a great idea!

Logical Libby said...

Viagra could help that ornament hanger.

Scarlet said...

LOL @ Joey's comment...and I agree with him! Love your bookmarks, chica! LOL Not for the average bookworm, I must say. :)

Riot Kitty said...

L: I'll let him know ;)
S: I'll totally make one for you!

G said...

Hmmm...the question I have is this:

Are the lovely homemade items with the fascinating adjective actually real or are they photoshopped?

A Beer for the Shower said...

That. Is. Awesome. I approve of all of these, but then again, I'm the grinch of the house. The wife, meanwhile, wants to eat sugarplums and fart mistletoe. Or whatever Christmas happy people do.

There's a huge contest in our awful little suburb offering first price to the 'best decorated house.' I want to spray paint a gigantic piece of plywood to say 'FUCK OFF, SANTA ISN'T REAL', hang it on my porch, and enter.

Riot Kitty said...

G: Yes, they're real! All made by me.
ABFTS: Excellent...I need to steal that sign idea.

John McElveen said...

I of course like the Ball Hanger!!!

You guys are awesome!!!

Hugs and Merry Christmas,

J

Riot Kitty said...

LOL John! Hope you have a ball during the holidays ;)

Scarlet said...

LOL - Really?? :)

Riot Kitty said...

S: Yes! E-mail me what you'd like.

Senorita said...

WOW! ::bows while saying "I'm not worthy"::

Riot Kitty said...

S: Thanks! They're pretty fun to make.
