Create a gift from your heart....

Our pastor's wife had a baby recently and I wanted to send a little gift to welcome their new bundle of joy. It was their first child. I remember how many photos I took, just in the first month. What could be better than a special book to hold all those memories of their little angel. Making things for little girls is my speciality. Being that I have two boys I rarely get the opportunity to make girly things. I went to my "stash" and got out the fancy ribbon, rhinestones and flowers. You know I love pink...so the theme had to be girly PINK!
A ribbon closure and pink buttons and embellishments adorned the inside. Empty pages just waiting to be filled with photographs of their blessing sent from above.
I made a matching gift bag and gift tag to hold to hold the special gift.
Next time you need a gift try creating it yourself. It will be a gift that will touch someones heart.
Even before the stars lit up the sky, you had a special place in the heart of God.
