Secret Santa is upon us ... and it gets harder and harder to think of cool things every year. We have three days of presents and a $30 limit. Every year I sort of try to do some crafts or something and keep the budget down.
This year I drew the name of a girl who likes to "garden and cook" ... ok, well that should be easy! ... and since it's winter there aren't a ton of plants available ... so I went deep into the abyss of my brain and came up with ... chalkboard pots!
I started off with regular terra cota pots .... at Home Depot, like 94 cents each.
Then I stuffed each one with green tissue paper (grass), labled each pot: basil, rosemary, cilantro, dill - and then I put a seed packet of each of those things in there. I took three pieces of chalk and wrapped it in a black & white ribbon - and it was SO CUTE ... THEN I forgot to take a pic and gave it to her today, LOL ... and I can't believe I did that but I thought this was SO CUTE.
She LOVED it.
