I've mentioned on this blog a few times that I am very interested in giving thoughtful and handmade gifts. I love giving gifts that were made with a specific individual in mind. I admit that sometimes I am just at a loss and I run to the store and gather whatever looks good enough. I hate doing that.
Over the weekend Cordelia attended her first birthday party. I decided this was the perfect opportunity to whip up a little handmade project. The birthday was for a 2 year old girl named Maddy. I decided to make her a little tote bag with her initial and a crayon roll from fabric scraps I had laying around. I put it all together in about an hour and just purchased a coloring book and some crayons! I also added the Andy Mason DVD (Eric and I made it and you can get it here)which has been a huge hit!
We had to leave before the party was over. Cordelia was well past nap time (she let me know this by freaking out over a pink ball). I don't know how the gift was received, but I sure felt good about bringing in a handmade gift!
What did you do this weekend?
