Fifteen Years of Christmas Gift Making

Somehow the Christmas gifts for last year were not documented in this blog.

They were done on time for distributing to their various locations. There were about 50 made this year.

Santa’s workshop!


This week there was some time to get ahead on the Christmas gift design for this year. The next idea is pretty much chosen. Being this far ahead of the game is rare and helpful.

Looking back at past productions it became clear that there were no records of last year’s gift.

This post attempts to remedy that.


Fifteen years of making stuff instead of only buying things has helped balance the experience of the whole gift frenzy season.

When a design works and the gift is received well it feels really good for multiple reasons.

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.
