Christmas ’08: The Girly Gifts
A couple months ago (before I got a job) I decided to try to be creative for Christmas. So, I leisurely set to work on “The Glamorous Gal’s Domestic Charm Collection.” Then…I got a job. This halted most everything besides sleeping and eating…and even some of that. A few days before we planned to leave for Middletown, I realized that I was less than half way done! So, I whipped out the sewing machine, spray paint, computer designy tools…and some quick meals….and here are the results!:
I think I had a little too much fun designing the labels…maybe that’s why I had so many aprons to do at the last minute?
For Mindy and Katie:
I had fun adding something different to everyone’s aprons, like Mindy’s little yellow flower pocket. 🙂 Mindy’s apron had to be delivered because she wasn’t with the rest of us at Christmas 🙁 I bet it looks cute with her pregnant belly
For Heather and Elaine:
For Lauren and Ruth
Ruth hasn’t received hers yet…seeing as she’s out of the country at the moment….so if you’re reading this Ruth, expect the green apron on the bottom to arrive in a package sometime, because it’s for you!
The Girls & their Aprons:
Not everyone was with us at Christmas, but here are some pictures I did get of the girls and their aprons:
Elaine uses her apron to help support her little pregnant belly:
Grandma wasn’t there for Christmas, either, but I snapped this picture after a mini late Christmas exchange at her house:
The preparation may have taken a while, but it was lots of fun and totally worth it! I love giving homemade Christmas presents! …do I really have to wait another YEAR??
