Calum, ( grandson) teacher is leaving to go travelling for three months. So Tammy decided to give her a fun useful gift.  This is what we decided on.  It all apart from the " Skin So Softly" bottle and the " micro pore " tape. All fitted in to the "Izzy" bag.   The little cards are 4x4 with bits from my bit box to decorate them.   A nice pen that can be kept after everything has gone.

I didn't make the "Izzy" bag and shoes.  Patricia made them.  So I can't take credit. I have another one of the bag and shoe sets to make up, but the bag will just contain cards and a pen, still have to think what can go in the shoes.  A little hand cream and something else like that I think.

Thank you for your comments on my little gift bags, they are so easy to make up. 4x4 cards fit in them by the way.  So would make a simple little gift for someone who still loves to send notlets even.

Off to pack up things from the chest of drawers that I keep the baby things for making up my baskets, every thing has to be stored away so that Charlies sister can have the drawers to use when she comes to stay.
I hope your weather is better than ours, it's very cold and raining here.

  16. A great teachers gift Hazel, very original as always. Patricia's bag and shoes are great too.
    Was thinking of you, do you have a M and S near? All our bubble bath, hand soaps and shower gels are drastically reduced just now to make way for new packaging. I did think of you and your boxes. I don't know whether other stores will be the same mind.
    Hugs Erika. x
