I've done a little side project

I have put all my regular WIPs aside to work on some Christmas gifts. Here's the first one I finished. My wonderful friend who will be receiving this gift regularly checks my blog, so she's getting a sneak peak at one of her gifts - she just doesn't know how it's going to get finished up (and I already have her main gift so I don't mind sharing the little extras I include!). I'm planning on doing a few more. I think they are just beautiful and so elegant. I hope she likes it as much as I do!

I Love Etsy!

I'm constantly making lists and I usually have a small notebook in my purse or tote. If given 5 minutes of quiet time (standing in a line, waiting for the light to change, etc.), I will usually pull it out (if I don't have a sudoku book on me) and start making lists. Things to do, projects to start/finish, groceries, etc. I'm sure you get the picture. Well, I love cruising around Etsy and looking at all the wonderful things to buy, when I came across this seller. She makes covers for the size of notebooks I usually tote around, so, I bought one. It arrived today and it's really cute. It even came with a new notebook. There's nothing so wonderful as a fresh pad of paper! I just had to show it off.
