My gift came from Stacy, who blogs at The Backroad Life. I am pretty proud of her for being able to pick out such fitting gifts, since I didn't put many helpful hints in my "likes" list when I signed up for CITC. Then when she went to my blog to research about me she didn't have much to go on for the last few months. BUT....she did great!
Her wrapping skills ..........
|Simple, country, and adorable|
She included homemade caramels ( she posted her recipe on her blog, so go check it out!)
The main clue or hint on the "likes" list was that I love local, handmade, personal items. I was excited to see that Stacy made some of my gifts. You can check out her shop Sew.Stitch.Create on Etsy.
Look at this fun little pennant garland:
The weather is finally getting cold enough for me to wear the flannel infinity scarf she sewed.
In my limited list, I did put that I loved coffee, so she included a candle that smells AMAZIN= Coffee meets cream brulee.
|Didn't I mention she has skills when it comes to packaging and presentation?!|
Finally, a rustic picture frame. How did she know I am on a picture frame kick?? My mom absolutely loves the Red Shed brand so she was a little jealous.
My gift was sent to Laurie Link who just happens to be one of the hosts for CITC. I am going to admit, I was a little nervous picking out her gift. I wanted it to be "perfect" I mean, she has a lot of followers and is one of the hosts, so you know everyone will see what I gave her. You can check out her blog Country LINKed.
Thank you to the bloggers who coordinated this year :Jamie from This Uncharted Rhoade, Laurie from COUNTRY LINKed, and Kirby from 15009 Farmhouse, Lara from My Other More Exciting Self
