surprise for somebody



often when i want to make a hand made present for somebody i think about it too late and then there is not enough time to create anything. so i thought i should make some gifts that i can grab "on the go", just as i also made some cards to be ready when i need them. sylvia and i both made bookmarks like these before but we almost sold out of them, others i used as presents, so i needed to make some more.

the first person to get one of these - and this is the surprise i mentioned in the title - will be... of course my dear sister sylvia! she made them with me and i realized she never took one home with her. so sylvia, you can pick one of these and i'll put into the parcel i'm getting ready for you. love you!


do you also love "just because" gift giving? i think it's the best way of giving, with no obligations or expectations to fulfill. it's fun to get a surprise ready for somebody!

Honestly I think just because gift giving is the best kind of gift giving there is. The person receiving the gift isn't expecting anything and the giver knows there is a gift to give so there is an underlying excitement that fills the air. Once the gift is given the feeling of joy is spread all around and happiness fills the space.

I agree with Tracey. I love to give little gifts (preferably homemade) just because. It helps brighten someone's day and that's awesome! These bookmarks are so pretty!

I love giving gifts just because! Tracey is so right about the underlying excitement that the giftgiver can experience. although i also like planning gifts.

thaaaank you, I'm always reading several books at a time so I am constantly in need of a new bookmark. I like the one on the far left best!!!
