Like most of you, I am in those last minute holiday preparations. I still have grocery shopping, cleaning, present shopping, dog grooming, and wrapping to do. It is a fun, yet sometimes exhausting time of the year. I try to slow down and reflect on the blessings I have and enjoy each moment, but sometimes those deadlines just kind of creep up on you. ; )
Yesterday was my last day of school, and I wanted to give something to the aides who help me so much each day. I bought each of them a Starbucks gift card.
I used images from the Crafty Secret's Retro Christmas CD. I did a double pocket. One for the gift card and one for the tag.
I used German glass glitter around the edges and adhered it to the glassine bag.
I tucked a tag inside with a Christmas sentiment.
I used some of my homemade rusty jingle bells, some gingham ribbon, and a bit of green twine to tie to the top of the tag.
I am off to do a bit more Christmas shopping with my son.....wish us luck!
And give me patience....lots of it! ; )
