Like Mother, like daughter

P and I both love to shop, and finding just the right gift is one of our favorite things to do. We have some birthdays coming up so I went to my 'gift shelf' and pulled down all the gifts that I've been buying and stowing to take stock. While I did that, Miss P decided to design birthday cards.

Here is the front of the card. It just includes the recipient's name with pink and purple swirls around it.


Her signature on the back. Do you like the backwards, "Paige Love," This was all totally independent of help.

This is most of what I had on the gift shelf. Note: if I know you read the blog, I did not include your child's gift! I always have our friends, nieces, nephews, etc., upcoming birthdays in the back of my mind, and when I see something for them (especially if on sale) - I buy it - and onto the gift shelf it goes.
I picked these up at the $1 aisle at Target. Paired with a gift card, this could be a cute teacher 'welcome to the new school year' gift.
Let's make this fun - I tag:
1) One Fabulous Mom
2) Biscuits are Never Boring
3)Happy Homemaker
4) Clemsongirl and the Coach
5) Preppy 101

Share a photo of your gift shelf or closet, latest gift you bought, or your wrapping supply favorites.

Thanks for the tag! I love to buy presents, usually shop early and have a special spot in my basement for wrapping. I will plan a post this week. Might have to clean up the corner first!

Holy guacamole, you already have presents for the teachers?
I usually give-out produce.... but only if I REALLY like them. :)
Miss Dodson lived of our tomatoes one year.

Hilary, they were $1 each at Target! These aren't so much for Paige's teacher...we do so many exchanges at work, birthday, secret santa and Christmas for the whole grade level that it helps to be prepared!

p.s. I love tomoatoes! : )
