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!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
