March Class

After my last post I hope it makes sense why I haven't posted many projects in the last couple of months. I've really been wanting to share something handmade that wasn't a recipe. Those of you that were in the January class saw these dresses on my work table. They were a submission turned workshop, and we decided on March 5th.

While I'm not big on giving them, I know several members of my family like to receive gift cards, and in some cases, cash. I'm also not a proponent of giving the card on the trusty little hanger it comes glued to or buying a $5 card that someone else wrote either. Each of these dresses have either a small envelope, a magnetic purse or glass vial to store a gift card or money. The back is perfect for writing a sweet sentiment to the recipient. Simple envelopes sewn from wax paper protect the "card" but give the receiver a hint that something pretty is inside.

In other news, today is my 14th wedding anniversary. Yep, he's still buying me glue after all these years. We're off to spend the rest of the week in Las Vegas thanks to my darling Mother who graciously offered to keep my kids. It's going to be downright GLORIOUS I tell you.
