It would make a really great hostess gift around the holidays, especially if it came filled with some freshly baked cookies! Filling it with biscotti and giving it along with some gourmet coffee beans would also be a good way to gift it. I have a lot of etching cream left and an itch to use it on everything in sight. I have a feeling my family and friends are all going to be finding something underneath the tree that's been etched in some way!
If I'd had more time I would've staged the picture better with cookies and a cute Christmas tag for Kendra's Christmas in July party. I planned on making it all week long, but of course it wasn't until the day I needed it that I bought all the supplies and etched the cookie jar. I had to wrap it almost immediately after I finished. I can say, it's a great last minute gift!
Here's the birthday girl at our fun Mom's Night Out at The Melting Pot! Yummy!!! She loved the cookie jar, with its contemporary three-initial monogram for couples: Wife's First Name Initial – Couple's Last Name Initial – Husband's First Name Initial. I figured her birthday, so her first initial should come first.Here I am right before leaving, just thought some of you might like to see the solution I finally came up with after asking for your fashion advice before. I feel a lot better with my shoulders a bit more covered up and the shorter length of the cardigan makes me feel a little hipper than the longer blue one. For me, this is all gussied up...note the lipstick, low heels and is that...why yes, even a bit of mascara, LOL! Did you notice my super cute new Vera Bradley Frill handbag? LOVE IT, the rosette is my favorite part.
