Off the Cuff
I went shopping and was very uninspired. I needed a birthday gift for a 10 y/o girlfriend of my daughter.
I had read a blog yesterday (for the life of me I cannot remember where) about the feeling of being overwhelmed by received gifts and the alternatives.
The words of the post sounded like the tattoo of a drum, 'No, trash, No trash, No trash', I could not find what I was looking for at the store so I returned home a bit disgruntled. I did not want to saddle another mom with crap disguised as a gift. I also did not want to look as if I had put no effort into the gift and just give cash. An idea bloomed as I drove back to the house.
I had just enough time to whip up a child's wrist wallet. Christie, a blogger I follow had a great tutorial here on lunch money wallets. Very easy and well photoed.
Here is my little wallet, and it did not take any time at all. I will be making more for my kiddos.
A box, homemade card and a little tissue and we were ready to go.
