Gifts I'm Giving

Hi. I'm Jen. I used to blog here. Remember me? I know many of you are enjoying my new banner and wondering what creative genius is responsible for it. It's all the hard work of the very sweet, patient and talented Ashley Draper. Thank you, Ash, for making my blog look as pretty as it felt!
In the wee hours of the morning I finally finished the last of the aprons. I love how they turned out and since I wasn't working from a pattern, they got easier as I went along.
I thought I'd share a little bit of what else I'm giving this year. I'd love to hear what you are giving.
If you've seen Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium you understand. I really wanted one for myself too but I guess I'll have to be content with sharing. From Target:

For the smart guy in my life. From The Discovery Store:

A one year subscription to my favorite magazine.
There's a rumor that Santa might bring this to our house for one lucky little lady.
For the daring girls in my life. And maybe a little bit for me too.

For the Man in the Yellow Hat wannabe.


  1. Jen,

    Love all those gifts you are giving. We are mostly having a gift card Christmas as the kids are grown and one will be flying home. One lucky stepson and his girlfriend are getting a kitchenaid mixer. It's more about the time together now that they are all grown up. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday they were young:>).

  2. Those are some pretty nice gifts. I love your aprons.

  3. The apron is darling. You are very talented. I just got the The Daring Book for Girls for my Sis-in-law who is expecting a baby girl in February.

  4. I keep see the Daring Books - can you give us a little review? The cover is indeed eyecatching. Since it's my first year in business all my family are getting antidotes from the chaotic life. That's what I call the gift baskets that I am carrying. Happy Everything!

  5. Oh...I must get those yellow boots. Hubby has been wanting a pair for the yard! Love all the gifts, and especially that pretty little apron.

  6. Hi Jen!
    I looooooooooooove your precious apron! You did a fantastic job girlfriend! So sweet - you should be very proud!!


  7. Very lovely....

    What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace (Agnes M. Pharo)

    Enjoy the Season

  15. Jen, I love your banner! Great gifts. Are you selling the aprons? I would love to buy one for my niece if you ever do sell them! By the way...St Nicklaus sent my daughter the Daring Book for Girls and she LOVED it...could not put it down and read it cover to cover!
