What a Gift!

There's nothing I like better than on finding myself with a day off these gloomy, grey chilly winter afternoons. I love to draw the curtains, light the candles and cosy-up by the fire and sit at my craft table and cut, stick and glue to my hearts content! Ideally with a nice hotpot or suchlike that sends out fabulous smells from my kitchen..which also lets me know I have a few hours to myself - and know that dinner is taken care of!
This week I made these very sweet 'gifts' to sell at a local Christmas charity sale ... I very much hope that each little gift will raise some much needed funds for a charity that so needs our support locally. They are such an easy and unusual idea for events such as this - or indeed as extra 'gifts' for friends and loved ones to hang on the Christmas tree. Give them a go!
They are very 'unusual' little gifts! - In fact there is nothing inside them apart from tissue paper or cut up tatty Jiffy bags, wrapped up in pretty paper and tied with a shiny bow - the recipient NEVER gets to see the inside of the gift you see... For on the label it reads:
"This is a Very Special Gift that you can never see
The reason it is so special is that it comes to you from me.
You only have to hold this gift and you we think of you.
You never can unwrap it, please leave the ribbon tied,
Just hold the box close to your heart - it's filled with love inside".

Now I realise that most of you are far far away from any Mollyevents..However, just on the offchance of any of you catching this who do live around these parts read on...
