My new favourite gifts to give





The artsy clutch was my old favourite go-to girly gift, but I made 2 of these "Cute as a button vintage clutch" (es) in a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. I love this pattern. It's sooo easy to make, and so quick!

These are presents, and I want to keep them, but I always take that as a good sign!

I also bought some jewelry making supplies from Supplies You Need and have made up some rose earrings, using my trusty glue gun. I'd seen these done at Grosgrain and Trey and Lucy. Green rose earrings modeled here by Old MacDonald (from a falling apart Golden Book I bought yesterday at the Oppy).



Edited to add: In my haste to post I didn't mention that the clutch pattern was from the Meet me at mikes book!
