Thoughtful (and inexpensive) Gifts- Part Two

So this week was my younger brother's birthday, and I had a chance to put my "gift-giving" thinking cap back on again!

My brother Iain is awesome. However, he is totally in a different realm from me as far as interests and hobbies go. He's a computer/technology guy. Usually, I will have Josh help me with Iain's gifts, but this time I had to pull it together quickly so I was on my own!

So using some card stock, felt, beads, and a fine-point permanent marker I made this:

I also put it in a nifty little frame that I had on hand.

We also gave him a card with some cash in it because, let's face it, when you've just graduated from college what you really need is $$$. =)

Iain LOVED his gift, and everyone got a huge kick out of the quote. In case you haven't heard this before, it's from a show called Little Britain. Here's a link to a youtube video that will explain it all.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, staying toasty and warm!
