A lady looked over at the tree with a sigh, "I don't even want to think about Christmas right now. Let's get through Halloween and Thanksgiving first," she replied.
I'll have to say, I do agree with her to a point. I quickly replied to her with, "Did you know there are only 10 more Fridays before Christmas?"
She paused and then said..."Oh....Now I'm a bit stressed."
Yep, only 10 more Fridays. This got me to thinking about all that I have got to do, and one of the things I need to do is mail packages. First, though, I have to get the gifts to go into the packages.
Here is one gift I have come up with....
The person I'm thinking of with this gift is very conservative. She is a beautiful woman, and dresses very simple, so I started out with this scarf that I made. I think she will like the colors.
Then I decided to make her this wood bracelet. Not sure of her wrist size, I figured a memory wire bracelet was the way to go.
She doesn't like heavy earrings, so I made her these crystal and paper bead earrings. I hand wrapped and triple dipped them in a special glaze so that they are water resistant.
Last thing I decided to throw in was this Ladder Necklace I crocheted. The colors are conservative; navy, white, green and brown. It is also adjustable!
Now she has several pieces she can change out. I don't expect her to wear all these pieces together, although the earrings and Ladder Necklace go nice together, as do the scarf and bracelet together.
I wrapped it up and tied a bow, added one of my beaded guitar string Christmas ornaments, and now it's ready to put in a box and ship off.
The next gift I have to figure out is for a guy. Girls are so much easier to give gifts too....
