I thought I'd just blast to the past for a moment. Well, the not so distant past. Christmas to be exact. I wasn't blogging yet and thought I would share one of my bigger crafty undertakings of the season.

My family is a bit girl heavy. I did not say heavy girls, I said, "girl heavy". Not just my immediate family but my extended family also. I have one son and three daughters (a fourth waiting for me in Heaven). I also have 5 nephews, 6 nieces and 2 great nieces. I didn't make these for all of the girls, but I was able to check off a sizable length of my gift list with these gratitude wraps that I spotted over at Soule mama. They were fun to make. The directions were easy to follow. And I think they turned out quite special. I loved choosing the patterns and personalizing each one. One of my nieces is in college. The other is going to be a pop star. I thought this was something they could use. And maybe think of Auntie (not to mention, write to Auntie) while they are away...
All in all a very gratifying project, this gratitude wrap.
