Gift giving....

 I so love giving homemade gifts.... I have made quilts and many other things that I just love to give at Christmas time or even on birthdays. So when Norma gave me a wonderful box at Christmas a couple of years ago I knew this would definetly be something I would try. She always inspires me to try different things. I also knew who I was making this one for....someone who just loves her Magnolias as much as Norma!
 I used my copics and tried the stipple effect around miss tilda...and added lots and lots of glitter!

I am so happy that I have made many gifts for friends this year...because last year was a right off completely and I did not feel very good about it. I have to say I did start my projects in January...which was a good thing. You don't feel as rushed and many times I really don't have time to put the care into things that I really want to take time to do.

This weekend I am working on some more of my Christmas cards. The weather looks perfect for indoor crafting!
