Use old paint swatches a picture frame (with glass) and some dry erase markers for a dry erase calendar works great for kids and adults. You can even coordinate different colors for different rooms. WORKS GREAT FOR A CHORE CHART!
JOY photo collage holiday craft project - old family photos would make this a really nice sentimental gift. OR just an initial for grad, wedding or anniversary gift. Might make the JOY one for me, friends + family + pets + joys.
