Hand-Made Gifts


My mom made some incredible hand-made gifts this year. Pippi's quilt came with a note attached: "The hearts are because I love you and the arrows are for 'Choose the Right." I think Pippi will treasure her quilt for years to come. And below, here's me with a cute new purse. I love it!
Pippi also made me a hand made gift this year. As the large shoe box containing her gift was removed from the tree she reminded me that it was fragile and to not shake the box. Here is her gift to me:
I took a picture as fast as I could because this gift was very fragile, and it did, sure enough, meet an untimely demise.

The symbolism of the quilt is so neat. That probably will stay with Pip for the rest of her life.

Maybe you could glue the ornament back together. Aren't the gifts your kids make treasures?
