A gift for Sarah-Jane

Hi Guys,

I hope Sarah-Jane doesn't mind but I thought I'd post some pics of the little 'room-mate gift' I made her. Firstly, I wish I'd taken a pic of the lovely 'Convention Survival Pack' that she put together for me. It was perfect, lovely decorated bag (with my fav Vintage Vogue SS) filled with tissues, pen, gorgeous covered (altered) notepad, much needed Panadol Rapid (esp after fire alarm debacle) & mints.

My lovely friend in the US, Lavonne, had very kindly sent me some more goodies, including some of the very yummy Satin Ribbon & 'Pretty in Pink' cord buttons. I made up some little pillow boxes using the Big Shot (so easy) and decorated them in pinks & browns (no-one who knows Sarah will be surprised at the colour choice LOL) and put a few little pieces of ribbon & some buttons inside. I wasn't sure how to package them, and then I realised that the Fancy Favour box/bag will hold three of the pillow boxes perfectly. Light bulb moment!!

Here are the pics:

I was quite chuffed with how the the pillow boxes fit.

Will try & come back & add the recipes later, need to be at a conference at 8am & its 23:15 now, must get to bed.

have a great weekend,
Love Fi x

Maybe I could just come sleep over on the floor of your apartment and a goodie bag like this would find its way to my pillow!

Hi there Fi

What a gorgeous gift set you have made. So very clever! I love the colours and love the box you made to pop them in. Sarah-Jane must have been thrilled with such a thoughtful gift.

I hope you had a wonderful time at Convention and came away very inpsired. Sounds like the first night was a bit chaotic though, you poor things must have been very tired the next day. But Memento Mall probably made up for it :)

It must have been great catching up with so many blog friends as well and hopefully getting to make some new ones.

Well, I could leave an extra long comment, but I think I might email you instead. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Love Lee-Anne

Hi fiona,
thank you so much for leaving such lovely comments on my blog.
convention was just fantastic wasn't it. I really enjoyed the social side of it, as much as the educational one.
I love this little gift you made. I would have never thought to put the pillow boxes inside the bigger one. Terrific. You have one lucky room mate.
