My Absolutely, Positively Last Handmade Gift For Christmas ~ Maybe

Panic set in yesterday when I realized that I still had to get a gift for a woman I work with at my day job. I could not figure out what to get for her. Since I stayed home due to the snow, I went looking to see what I had as far as supplies. This is what I pulled together.



This is what I turned it into.





Not the best gift in the world, but without driving myself crazy over what to get her, I think this works. Plus, she can always take the scrapbook paper with the initial out and use it for an actual photo.

I gave it to her today and she loved it!

How could she not? Handmade gifts are wonderful, showing a bit of effort on the part of the giver!

And really, it is your last one for the season...you still have a couple days?!

Of course she loved it! It is a great gift and even more special that you spent the time to hand make her gift.

Totally cute...I know that she will love it...or did love it, depending upon whether you have already gifted her or not. Love the monograms...they are everywhere right now. Merry Christmas!

Very nice work, Kathy! You've been hand-made gifting up a storm. You must have a big family and/or lots of friends.

Very cute! I'm sure she'll love it - monogramms are so big this year!

Merry Christmas!

I'm not surprised she loved it. It turned out great! (I like the bling you added too :-) ).

Don't you HATE THAT when you forget somebody??? I always have high intentions on making gifts like this ahead of time...like June but it never happens! You did a great job and it doesn't look like you forgot her! My gift would have had the receipt stuck to the gift...hinting the time of purchase and everythign!
