Creating a Gift is Joyful!

I had the privilege of attending a baby shower for a girlfriend of one of my daughters.
The baby is a boy and she is naming him "Jack", a name I am very fond of.
(My father's name was Jack)

I always try to give a little something that I hand make...
... my way of adding a personal touch to gift giving.

As all of you crafters know...there is just something special about receiving a present that exudes the love, time and thought that went into it.

So I made this for dear little Jack!

Warmly,

Hello Carrie~I didn't want to miss the opportunity to come by and wish you a Happy Valentines Day.
Sometimes our lives can become very busy making it difficult to return visits. I appreciate you taking the time to not only visit but, especially for leaving me with your sweet comments.

It truly inspires my creative process. It's always a joy for me to share.
I hope you can stop by for some V-Day fun. I've posted a tutorial on Conversation Heart Petit fours.

Sweet Valentine Wishes,
Sara
