Handmade Gifts are the Bestest

One of my best friends recently graduated from Nursing school.  I cannot say enough what an amazing accomplishment this was - for she was not just a student, but also a mother, grand-mother, and manager/owner of a pretty large poultry farm.

With ALL that on her plate, wouldn't you agree with me when I say that so few could do so well.  All of us that know what she is capable of never doubted she could do it.  WE all know how when she sets out to do something ...she does it...no matter how big a task it is.

And she did...with flying colors...

So proud of her.  Trying my hardest to figure out what that perfect gift should be, was difficult for me.  Not sure why I put so much into the giving of a gift, but I do know that there is so much I'd like to say to her, but words never come.  So I can only express it through the  meager gifts I offer.

Being a very much a handmade gift sort of gal, I decided to make her a hand woven scarf.

And of course, to add that perfect touch, I very quickly made a tag to go along with it.

I know that most of the awesome projects you've seen today on the {ippity} blog are using the {ippity} set, "What's Cooking"...and they are food related, but I couldn't resist using it for my gift tag....along with  {ippity} Stitches of Buttons, and Unity's itty bitty, "Fun Burst".

Because, well, this gift, really is made with love.  To my good friend, Jean. I'm so proud of you!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
