There are so many birthdays amongst my family and friends in April; my mum, my daughter, two of my sisters, my sister-in-law, two friends.
Buying gifts for everyone is out of the question, but when I have time, I like to make home made gifts.
A friend mentioned to me that she would love to have one of the coffee sack pillows I make, so I made her two, and a monogrammed burlap tote bag.
This friend is a potato fiend. She loves them prepared every way you can imagine, especially french fries. Recently my daughter has created a new series of drawings that she named “Potato Problems”. I had to beg her to make me a couple of cards, since they are so cute.
Another friend is hosting Good Friday dinner tonight. She ordered some signs for Mothers Day, so as a thank you for the invite I made her signs early, as a gift.
And every once in a while, I am blessed enough to get something for free. I will be picking up this entertainment unit tonight from Kijiji (a Canadian version of Craigslist)
I have some thoughts on what I will do with it, which will definitely involve paint and adding two bookcases, one on each side.
