A very girlie gift for a grown-up girlie

Hello there,

Hope you are having a good day.  Today I am going to share with you a little gift I made for my ex-MIL's birthday.  Yes I know it sounds strange to send gifts to an "ex" in-law, but I've always got on really well with her as she is lovely and she is my son's Granny afterall, though I don't think she will every forgive me for making her a Gran before she was 40 - lol!

A little girlie bag...

... with treats for a grown up girlie!

I also made a post it note holder with her initial on and a card, but I was in such a rush to make sure I got to the post box that there wasn't enough time to photograph those items but they all co-ordinated.
I didn't make them too fussy as she lives very close to her 2 very little grandaughters and I didn't want there to be lots of glitter etc in case they got hold of them.
They arrived in time, thank goodness and she liked her gifts, which is the main thing.

Back tomorrow with another idea in my "Countdown to Christmas" series, until then, have a great day... xxx
