So when I was visiting Arizona, I spent some time with great friends, one being Lorri Heiling.  Well she and I have a love for giraffe and myself zebra print, so I couldn't not make her a set of cards in giraffe print and the matching pen.....its all about the "set"....

He is not a Stampin' Up giraffe, but I pick stamps up everywhere that are zebra and giraffe....

A gift for Toby

So glad my friend, Diana Gibbs came to convention to get Toby's gift.  He loves his auntie Kim, so since my new addiction is the Cameo, I had to etch his name on a treat dish.....and just so he remembers who these treats are from.....its a zebra dish!

Convention is right around the corner and this is a pin
 to wear or to add to the convention bag but again, its better in person....It is made on a piece of wood with a clear coat on the top....not a big deal!  It is the tag for a friends gift, you will see in a later post!

This is yet another anniversary gift for a couples 50th celebration.  Their last name is Lemon and this is a gift my mom asked me to make to give them.  She will fill it with lemons....I think it will be perfect!  See if I can get a photo when it is ready for giving also....

For the Newlyweds

Braydon had a wedding to go to and went to buy the gift card, but no card....so I asked him what he was going to put the gift card in....He says, "mom, none of the cards are as good as yours and they are expensive, will you just whip one up" of course......why would I not just "whip one up"  So this was the final project!!!

Etching Glass

I know these are a little hard to see, but I have been doing some etching on glass.  The top 4 glasses are for a 60th Wedding Anniversay and this is their boat name etched on them.  I hope they love them, I had so much fun making them.  And this one here is a salad bowl with another friends boat name on it.
