In early November while I was getting my hair cut I asked my Stylist, who is in her early 30's, what type of gift she likes to receive from her Parents, her answer, you guessed it---gift cards. The Stylist working next to her, also in her 30's, agreed, gift cards is the gift of choice because they can choose what they like.
Okay, I'll admit that I put gift cards on my list to my local quilt shop or JoAnnes but I also put anything handmade so I left room for some creativity.
I'm going to have to come up with a way to make giving gift cards fun. I've decided I'll have to be creative on what I put the gift cards in. A wine glass, a makeup case? What to do for the guys?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make giving gift cards fun?
My Christmas memories today are ornaments that I received from my sewing circle friends in 1984. At the time we were all stay at home moms and met once a week during the school year to work on our projects. Although we met for a couple of years this was the only year we did an ornament exchange.
This little snowman was crocheted by my friend Bobbie.
My friend Rose trimmed and filled this sweet little basket:
I made this ornament for the exchange and made one for our tree as well.
I'm almost finished with my snowman penny rug, I just have to finish the hats and embroidering their mouths.
They're beginning to look like snow people---not men because a couple of them are girls. Hopefully I'll finish it this weekend.
