Thank You.

I recently had a baby. I had so many people give us gifts and make meals. It was quite a blessing. After we brought Avery home and we were there for a few days, my mom and dad took the older two kids back home with them for a long weekend. It was nice to have a break. The idea was to get the older kids away and I would rest to help me heal properly. I was getting a little bored out of my mind - after all, I only had one kid left to look after. So...I handmade little Thank You's for my friends. I made a card, a heart ornament and a little bag to put them in. I made 200 of those same hearts as favors at my wedding so the people that were at my wedding didn't get the heart and I made them different cards. If you still haven't received a Thank You from me it is because I've only given them out in person. If I haven't seen you then yours is sitting on my microwave waiting to be mailed. I will eventually get to to post office. We don't mail much around here.

Handmade cards in general are very easy to make and a heck of a lot cheaper. I was at Target yesterday looking at Get Well cards (the little neighbor girl broke her arm and Jude wanted to get her a High School Musical card). YIKES. Almost $4 for a card that I don't even like. No way. I told him we could color her a picture. The bags were cheap and I already have a ton of stamps laying around - but in the interest of those who don't - I did borrow these particular stamps from a friend. Stamp pads are inexpensive ($1 at Pat Catans). I know not everyone takes pottery and can make their own hearts BUT - craft stores sell an assortment of wood ornaments or other small craft items you can make a lot of. I just thought it was a nice touch to give a small gift as a thank you. So...here are the pics.

What a wonderful, frugal idea! They are so cute and I’m sure that the person who receives them finds the homemade factor so much more special that if you had bought a card.

Wow! I'm so impressed that you have made these projects and hosted multiple giveaways at Fall Ya'll with having a newborn! Look at you go!
