There is a drawback to being the last Friday Girl to receive a birthday gift from me this year. You already know what you're going to get. It was OK for Jan and Michelle, they opened theirs together back in March. But once Helen received hers in May it was fairly obvious to both Nicole and Sue-Anne what I would be making for them.
I did have some reservations about going down this path, as it does take away the element of surprise; part of the joy of opening a gift. However Sue-Anne was very excited when she saw Nicole's a couple of weeks ago. So much so we joked about wrapping something entirely different! So nice to know the gift will be appreciated in advance!
I've suddenly realised by the end of next week we will be half way through August and with a number of deadlines looming for the end of the month I really need to make a start. There are so many ideas floating around inside my head it can be difficult to zero in on one. Once I get started it all becomes clearer, but the problem is starting.
Here's a peek of what I've started. Yes it does involve one of Barb's gorgeous new buttons that arrived in the mail last week.
