Rebecca's Party

Happy Saturday to you!! 

Can you believe that we are literally one week from Christmas. 
I can't believe this month has just flown by. 

For today's post I'm linking up with Rebecca to celebrate her birthday and blog party that she's having. 

Let's give a big shout out to our beautiful "Texas" friend Rebecca. 

No, she's not from Texas but since she visited during the shows we just claim her as one of the Texas girls. 

And since she's also celebrating her birthday today, I hope you'll stop off over and give her a big, huge, Texas Birthday wish. 

See how pretty she is:

There's Rebecca with Jo Packham, Gina Galvan, and Carol at the Spring 2010 shows.

To celebrate her birthday post, she asked that we show a special gift we'd made.

A few years back, I had decorated a gift bag to give to a friend and
I also embellished a book with her initials:


Well this year, while I was thinking what I would do special for the same friend, I decided to wrap her gift in a another handmade bag that I decorated for her:

It's such a fun and easy thing to make and I think it makes it more unique than just buying a bag or wrapping a present with paper.  To me it is more meaningful when something is made.    

Thanks Rebecca for letting us celebrate this special day with you.

Don't forgot to stop over and give Rebecca lots of Birthday well wishes,
 hugs, and
kisses on her special day!!


  1. I wanna be your special friend! lol!

    I was over at Rebecca's a few minutes ago! Fun!


  2. Can I be your special friend after the bags!

  3. Thank you so much Theresa, I love being a Texan with a Minnesota accent! Yaaa you betcha!
    And believe me the weather in Tx agrees with me better than Mn.
    I love your bag, such a simply stated but great idea! You have such class girl!
    I hope to get back there in the spring! I love and miss all my Texan friends...
    Thank you so much for my birthday wishes and sharing my party and sharing your friendship with me

  4. Love your bag... and what a great picture of Rebecca and her friends!!!

  5. Hand-made gifts between Friends are ALWAYS my most cherished pieces. I would never want to throw a wrapping away that looked like this... it's Gift enough itself so I can only imagine how ultra special the contents of such a bag would be!!!!
