    Love your creativity Melody - lots of luck people will be very happy to receive your goodies!! Mahaalo for the link to the recipe!!

    Will you be able to post pictures of your cards Peanut? Must admit that I am always looking for inspiration!!

    Tonight I am going to sew some covers for individual tissue packets to include as stocking stuffers. Nice thing is that they will be easy to sew up by hand since my machine is tucked away for now.

    MM: they're just simple stamps on the cards. I don't do anything fancy. I like to know my limits. This year's card is a Christmas tree stamp on the outside, with a "Merry Christmas" stamp on the inside. Easy...

    You could easily learn mymel! Youtube is a great resource for stitches. Give it a try sometime!

    Dinah - this '1 garbag can made out of hundreds of little circles made out of magazines' intrigues me - please tell us more!!

    I just finished cutting out the recipes for the Kauai relatives. Have yet to make the cover for the albums. Will be putting them altogether on Kauai. Love having this perfect frugal and yet practical present for them.

    Still need to get the fabric strips cut to take also. With all the flying between the islands that DH has done recently, he was awarded the Hawaiian Air status that lets him take 2 bags free - saving $34 each way. Plus I didn't have to send the presents by mail as was my first idea. Things are shaping up!!
