At the beginning of the year, I envisioned stacks of cloths, Snowbabies and Santas, maybe a few Christmas Stories, too, piling up and resulting in easy gift giving for the end of the year. Well, I managed to make... nine.
Paired up with little Mary Engelbreit soaps I've collected, and packaged in decorated cellophane bags with pretty ribbon and tags, Rebecca's teachers, principal, administrators and librarian were all taken care of.
I might have to keep this one in mind for next year, they came out nicely and are good gifts. Meaningful and thoughtful, but not over the top, where the recipient feels like it's too much.
There's more handmade to come, but for now... here's hoping 2010 will be good to all of us, and that you're ready to put 2009 behind. Happy new year!
