I will start of show and tell as I have lovely photos in already!
Kelsey put together beautiful themed gifts. She found packets of seeds on a huge special. So she made up gardening gifts...
Kelsey included some home made hand scrub and gorgeous packaging. I love the styling! She said these gifts were very inexpensive and a big hit. Really good ideas here!
Jane made Olive Oil soaps. They look really good! Soaps are amazing as they make great gifts or supplies.
I love the shapes Jane and the colour, they look really creamy. Beautiful.
Kelley has been card making. She found a luscious book of floral images! Perfect! This is a dream come true kind of op shop find for me. There were enough beautiful pictures to make stacks of cards!
Old books just are fantastic for card making. For a few dollars you could have a hundred images! You can choose any theme that you like or that a loved one likes. Rose books are pretty much my favourite find!
Kelley these look like super expensive cards and what a supply you now have!
Anne took a little wooden box and decorated it with Beatrix Potter pictures to make a little book box. I think this is gorgeous. Her beautiful crochet is shown as well.
I think everyone has shown beautiful AND economical gifts! Now over to you! What have you been making this month? How did you add to your gift cupboard?
In Australia we have Mothers Day coming up. I also have a couple of birthdays as well.
I added a huge roll of plain brown paper to my stash. I think it is 50 meters and it was really cheap. Good old brown paper always looks stylish! It also covers ugly pots and looks good to wrap around a bunch of herbs or flowers, wrap soaps and make bands around a loaf of bread etc. Handy stuff!
I am almost finished a rug for charity, I am on the last row with is a scalloped edging.
Pictures can be posted on the Bluebirds Facebook page or emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Works in progress are also welcome!
I hope your week is going well. We have had lots of rain and the garden is watered. xxx
