You can make a gift like the one Lisa has designed for this graphic above. countryclipart.com
Using craft wire for connecting and hanging, you can cut hearts from thin pieces of wood, drilling little holes to thread the craft wire through,
paint them with acrylic craft paint and spray with a poly urethane. Use a pretty fabric or ribbon bow on each end for hanging on the wall.
Leave "tails" on the bow to hang down and look pretty. You can also make hearts from fabric, cut and sewn together (sew right sides together,
leaving a small space for turning the heart right side out and for stuffing, then stitch the small opening closed.
Then link the hearts together with wire or ribbon, making a bow at each end for hanging. Use your imagination!
For a new bride, you can do this all in white, using strands of pearls to make some loops and then satin bows over the tips of them to anchor them down. Mothers seem to also like this gift.

Look in our
Modest dress section.
Remember, you can make "cookies in a jar" mixes in quart mason jars... these make excellent gifts... even "hostess gifts" for you to give during the holidays. Look in our Cooking Good Things section
Another Good Thing you can make... gifts for the freezer for helping someone during an illness, or for after a baby is born into a family.
You might be surprised at how much a neighbor would appreciate a gift of cookies on a plate! If you have never really gotten to know a neighbor, this is a very good "opener" for future conversations! Yours just might be the only friendly gesture they experience today!
Make time for someone today!

I just received a gift I'll always love! It is a collage of pictures of our children. Our friend got pictures from one of our daughters (unbeknownst to me) and copied them and made the collage with a poem in the center of the grouping.
You can purchase a CD from the Graphic Garden and on it you will find patterns for x stitching, stationery, email, webdesign and more. http://www.graphicgarden.nu/
