It's my friend Diane's birthday today... the kind of friend who brings homemade pasta to my kids when I go away, leaves a dinner on my doorstep when we've had to rush to the hospital with someone, or just drops by with warm cookies, or to spend an hour with my lonely cat. She's a sweetie. So I bought her some sugar cookies sprinkled in pink sugar and some little English soaps.
Using my roll of brown paper, I stamped her name, a few stars and a little cupcake. A hot pink ribbon and I'm all set. Interestingly, although I find brown paper packages to be desirable, I'm not sure in the glitzy world of glossy gift wrapping if others do. My gift I showed you HERE was the VERY last one to be selected from the pile of 50 gifts by the pregnant mama at the baby shower be last Saturday. Ce'st la Vie.!
