A Gift for Pam & A Peek for Robyn

It has been a long time since I've posted pictures of anything I've made and I have been busy, really I have.

For her birthday, I wanted to give my friend Pam an initial charm pendant made by Mimi, another dear friend. I've spoken about Mimi's work before and her lovely things can be seen here. In order to make the presentation a little more special, I covered a paper mache box and added a punched scalloped oval stamped with a P, a little Quickutz bluebird and my favorite sheer dotted ribbon. I accompanied this gift with a ribbon tied assortment of greeting cards I made. Pam was pleased which made me happy. There are certain friends who prefer handmade gifts and are very appreciative when you make the effort.

And now for the peek for Robyn. As I mentioned, in an earlier post, I am participating in the GaGa for Garlands swap being hosted by Tamy Ottomeyer. Our banners are to be in the mail this week and I'm almost finished with Robyn's. I thought I would post a peek of it here.....

Robyn, If you're reading this, I'm hoping to get it in the mail to you tomorrow. My husband just had some surgery yesterday and I've had to stick close to home but I think I can skip on over to the post office and get this on its way to you. I hope you like it.

Now you know that none of my posts can end without adding of a picture of my very special sweetie....who has been very sick this past week. Feel bettter Charlie...Gram sends kisses! He's 4 1/2 months old and still a happy guy-even when he's not feeling well.
