My friend Kathy is celebrating a special birthday this year, she just turned 50! So my friends and I decided to buy and make her 50 different gifts, wrap them up, put them in a basket and surprise her with them. She was very happy and surprised. I did a similar gift idea when my sister turned 50. It's really fun because one of the rules is you can only open one gift per day, so it's 50 days of fun. Here are a few photo's of my wrapping creations. Kathy is an avid seamstress, so I decided to decorate her gifts with buttons.
On Wednesday it was my friend Allison's actual birthday, so we celebrated with breakfast at another yummy restaurant in Frederick called Cafe Nola. They have amazing breakfast sandwiches and great coffee. After breakfast we relaxed with a wonderful pedicure from Thomas Scott Salon and Spa.
So, the past few days I've been working like a nut trying to make up for my play days. I was in my studio all day yesterday and today creating and pricing jewelry for the Waygoose. I'll take photo's tomorrow of some of the pieces and post them on Monday. I'll also give you more information about the new Waygoose opening in Bethesda in Monday's post.
Here is a photo a Yin and Yang necklace that I made. I love how it turned out.
