Little Deuce Coupe

"Happiness is the vehicle we travel in, not our destination."    Unknown

This will just be a short post (at least shorter than usual). I wanted to share something that I tangled for a very good friend for her birthday. Using a template from Ben Kwok, I made this VW bug for her.

While the blue was not the perfect match, she owned a light blue bug for the four years that I've known her. And she told me she has been driving a bug for the last 15 years. So when I saw that Ben had this template, I thought this would be a great gift for her.

Fast forward a couple of weeks from when I first had the idea. She informs me that she is getting a new car...a larger, much fancier Mercedes! My first thought was, "Oh no!" But then I realized maybe my idea would make an even better gift now so she will have a memory of the little bug. Here it is framed...not easy to get a good picture through reflective glass!

I think it's pretty cute, and I'm happy to say that she likes it!

  1. So cute! How could your friend not like it and appreciate something so personal. I'll bet she cherishes this like she cherishes the memories of driving her various "bugs". :-D
