a few last minute gifts...

12.29.2010

I did decide they had to be made.  I was thinking I would just say, done, no more present making.  But then I changed my mind, of course, I had to. 


 Just a couple zippy wallets for some great teachers. 


I always try and make useful things as gifts, and I'm sure these will get used, and perhaps be pretty and bring a little smile to some one's face.


I forgot to thank all of you who stopped and left such nice comments on my deep thoughts post before Christmas.  I was glad to put it out there, just want everyone to know that sometimes things seem perfect, but they're mostly just carefully edited for maximum enjoyment. ♥

  7. Adorable, as always! I made one of your gathered clutches for Little Man's teacher. She loved it. I have to put this on my next years to do...by then I will have mastered the zipper!!!
