I am proud to say that this time I finished the pair of gifts at home, and even found time to photograph them!
Two pencil / notebook "bags"- one purple and one pink (luckily my lovely nieces have chosen two different favourite colours!). The idea is not my own - I know I saw this concept on a blog somewhere, I think maybe a year ago - if it is yours, please let me know so I can properly acknowledge you!
(I did finish attaching the second set of snaps before getting in the car...)
The best thing about these gifts was watching them being immediately put to creative use... ahh, a rainbow, carefully made with every pencil in the set!
(I heard later that this was her first ever rainbow!)
