also from the garden

These are the gifts that I made for the "walking girls".  The "walking girls" are the girls (ladies) that I walk with every morning.  Except on the weekends.  I don't do weekends.  Not now.  Not ever.  We clear on that?
OK, OK, just havin' a little fun.  I made them a jar of handscrub, a lavander soap, a post-it-note holder and I put them in a kraft bag with two cookies on the flap.  I think they liked the cookies best of all!!

homemade from the garden

This is a pen vase I made my mother-in-law for Christmas.  She loves roses.  I had made these before with daisies as the flower, but when I saw these roses at Michaels I had to try and make this for her. 

I hollowed out the roses with a hot knife and then hot glued them to the end of an RSVP pen.  I filled the inside of the pen with green Bazzill Paper (sorry, sis-I know there must be a law against that somewhere) and filled the vase with blue, silver and clear pebbles.  I tied a green ribbon on under the rose and then spritzed the roses with Glimmer Mist (dazzling diamonds).  I finished up by tying a tule bow around the base with an angel ornament for accent.  I hope she likes it...
