Home Made for a bloke.....

In the theme of handmade (sort of) Christmas gifts we fixed up some beer for widget's dad.....

I've seen these done several times and was glad I gave it a go this year

"Reinbeer"


Labels printed from this fun site....  


really fun with some christmas pipe cleaners with little bells....


our ham was delicious.....


... it came with a calender that surprised me.... 

.... when my boys were younger in the house I really was against these sexy woman calenders and pictures.... I told them it's an insult to me to have these images.....

... somehow I don't feel the same about this one!.....


(actually I think he needs a bit more meat on him!!)

Righto, Gotto Go..... still sorting those cupboards.... how come when I sort one shelf it makes three times more mess and things to do??????

Perfect way to start a new year.
Love the reinbeer.

I've been wanting to make reinbeer for a few years now, but I keep forgetting! Love the calendar! ;0)

Susan said...

Love the reinbeer idea, and your calendar story is very funny. I don't think your calendar is demeaning.......it's art!

Janet said...

The Reinbeer is great! I know what I'm doing for my s-i-l next year! Did you make your own beer? The calendar is nice to look at but would make me feel guilty after all the times I've told men that such stuff is using women as sex objects. :)

Michelle Ridgway said...

Ah reminds me must get a 'firies' calendar for next year. Lol. Love the rein beer and your ham looks delish.

Jeanette said...

Too funny Fiona. I'd keep that calender too. :) Love the reinbeer. Hugs,xx.

cute reinbeer..
as far as I am concerned that guy in the calendar is still a male, when I look at him I think 'get out of the bed and get some clothes on so I can make the bed!'
I must be too old....

Ham and reindeers look great The other looks delectable
Oh you are naughty

Susan Snooks said...

Funny reindeer beer! And I've been cleaning cupboards too! Must be the thing to do before the New Year!

Jane said...

It's always harder to think of things to make men. This would have gone down well

Karen said...

Back from holidays and catching up on your news. The ham looks delicious ( and so does the calendar!). Love the idea with the beer bottles. Good luck with all the tidying and sorting. Isn't this a great time to get into those cupboards so there can be a fresh start to the new year? Good luck!

Quilt Kitty said...

Oh Fiona I love your reinbeer weewee - what a brilliant idea. Good on you having the calendar, a few more sales & the poor boy might be able to afford to buy clothes! Scrumptious looking ham (the real one, not still talking about the clothesless man!). Tracee xx

Nicky said...

Fabulous idea, I know some blokes who would appreciate reinbeer :-)

Jennifer said...

Oh dear, I must be getting old......all I can think is that calendar bloke looks far too young for me!

Anthea said...

Ha ha, I love the beer Fi, very clever.
As for the calender, that's a good one... years ago a boyfriend of mine was a Fireman, and he appeared in the WA Firemans calender, so of course I had to have my copy!
Tell Hubz your calender is for ... um... ah... bed linen research... x

Susan said...

Yummy calendar - oops I mean ham!!???Great idea about the beer labels.

Narelle said...
