My love language is Gifts! Handmade I gifted in Jan/Feb

My sister says my love language is GIFTS, and yeah I agree with her!  I love giving gifts (I love getting gifts too) but I really love it when someone loves what I gave them….ok that was a lot of love!  But you get my drift.  Since my whole business started due to the compliments I got from the handmade gifts I have given over the years, I feel like I sort of have to make birthday/holiday gifts for people.  Sometimes I just can’t (no time, etc. and then the guilt sets in) but I really do try to as much as I can!

For January/February – there aren’t too many birthdays in our world.  Just my husband, my sister-in-law and a niece and nephew and a few friends… okay that is quite a few.  But I only managed to get 2 handmade gifts delivered.  The 3rd is still in progress and didn’t make it for the birthday gift, but I have plans for it.

The gifts I did get done were a Tinkerbell inspired purse for my niece! tinkerbell purse She had a Sofia the 1st birthday party so I was going to go with that theme, but then her mom (my sister-in-law) said that she was really loving a Tinkerbell movie music CD, so I picked that up from Amazon along with the cutest little Tinkerbell stuffie from Hallmark.  You know I just had to make her a little Tinkerbell inspired purse to put everything in. I even tried out some decorative stitching on my machine on the handle. Cute, huh!

A kitty throw I really love giving handmade, and I can’t guarantee everyone will get something handmade, but I will darn well try!
