Happy Giftgiving

Recently we celebrated two birthdays in our extended family.

Both of which involved my kind of shopping.

For my sister I found this suitcase in the Reject Shop

and filled it with baking goodies

including some caketoppers I made using Stampin Up! products.

 For Steve's sister (who loves patchwork, pink & blue and was turning 60)

I found a jelly roll in colours and patterns to suit,

(not an easy task as so many jelly rolls

feature bright modern fabrics)

and popped it in a cute box that she can use to store the fabric

once unrolled.

She was over the moon when she opened this gift and

ran around showing everyone what we had given her.

My sister had spotted the suitcases herself but hadn't bought one,

so she was happy too.

So I felt that for once everyone was happy.

And guess what?

I bought one of the suitcases for myself.

Because, unlike my sister, I couldn't resist ...

Oh I can relate Fiona, when shopping for my bestie I often end up buying one for myself as well.
