On My Desk...

On my desk today is the product of some late night sewing last night. The fabric is to be used as an alternative to wrapping paper. I think from now on I will be trying to either recycle wrapping paper or wrapping gifts with something that can be used again.

On My Desk

This is my first attempt at a Soule Mama gratitude wrap & I am planning to make a few of these as Christmas gifts.

Gratitude Wrap

I have been saving this Joel Dewberry wood grain fabric for a special project & I love it combined with the linen & spots.

Gratitude Wrap

This wrap is a gift for an ace chick who is having a birthday in a few days so make sure you pop over to her blog to say hello & check out some more desks too.
