Tomorrow I'm going to my cousin's wedding reception. My gift for her is a compilation of ideas from a few different blogs. I know that its not good ettiquette to brag about a gift I'm giving someone, but I was just so excited about bringing together several free ideas from blogworld that I thought it might be post worthy.
Above you'll see:
1. A personalized 9x13 for the happy couple. Can you see their name etched in the bottom? No chance this dish will get lost at a pot luck! I was a little worried about doing the etching but it really was no big deal. Here's the tutorial that got me going: http://happyvalleyquilter.blogspot.com/2008/03/name-that-dish.html
2. Matching Red, Black and White Potholder. Idea planted in my head by Freda's Hive cute yellow potholders. Mine isn't near as cute as hers. http://fredashive.blogspot.com/2008/04/what-im-doing-this-weekend.html
3. And lastly, I printed out a few FREE, adorable recipe cards from Posy Get's Cosy. http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/2008/05/my-sister-made.html I love cookbooks but there is something even more special about tried and true recipes handwritten from someone you know.
Now I've just got to wrap this all up in some cute fashion and it'll be ready to give. I hope she likes to cook.
Thanks again for the Inspiration Blog World!
