I am very busy wrapping presents! Trying to make them look pretty even though they don't last too long!! I hope everyone enjoys what we have bought them this year! If not, maybe they will be too stunned from the wrapping to notice anything else!!!
I made two more of the 2 tiered stands to give as gifts to a couple of close friends that I used to work with at my last job. One gal has been my friend there for almost 20 years now!! The other, I met just a couple years before I left but we really hit it off. They are both special to me and I miss seeing them everyday. It is hard to match that work friendship because there are few people you see everyday!
Not having much money, I went to Goodwill (my favorite store it seems) and found these Christmas plates for $1 each, salad plates were .50 each and these candlesticks were .50 each. I loved that the candlesticks were already Christmas ready!! So for $2, I made something pretty for my wonderful friends.
I had already made these for my sister-in-laws and my mother-in-law.
Here is the one I made for myself!
I hope everyone likes them as much as I do. It isn't much but I hope they use them and think nice things about me when they get it out each year!!
To all my wonderful friends and family,
