Planning ahead...

I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org

Yes, I am a shameless self promoter when it comes to my birthday. However I have never had the problem of people forgetting my birthday or not knowing what gifts I would like.
One of my wonderful Grrrrlz - the original Ms T often says: "Your presence is your gift."
Rubish.
The truth is I just love the thrill of unwrapping. My daughters know this. They are very wise. I often get gifts like a stone wrapped in a piece of fabric. Or, one of my all-time favourites, an earbud wrapped in toilet paper. I was in a good mood all day.
I guess for me it really is the thought that counts.

:-) Well, you'll be happy to know that this year I'm organized (maybe because I got 8 hrs to myself between Christmas & New Year) while being sick to do some planning) and have a present for you. I'll remember to put a lot of wrapping around it... Maybe I can get Katya to send you some feathers or grass or tiny bits of fabric -> she loves wrapping odd items like that.
