I hope you are well. My metric farewell dress is done (I'll show pics once I have some of my friend's DD wearing it) and boy #2 is flying home from university for the long weekend. I just LOVE to have all my children within shouting distance!
Do you struggle like me with presents for men?? I really do and I think it's because I hate giving unwanted stuff. So I came up with an idea .............................. find out what they like to eat and give a home baked treat. This one is for a friend's birthday and I made it extra special by adding a voucher for a refill to the packaging.
My husband likes his rusks extra crispy so my friends started calling it Squirrel rusks. Why not use it? I cut my friend Andre's name with my Silhouette and added a "print and cut" squirrel to the voucher. Here is a close-up:
For my non South African Bloglanders - it says "valid for 1 refill of Hazel's Squirrel Rusks". To: Andre, Expiry date: 6/2014 and my number to re order. I blocked that out with some digital Washi as I don't want anyone to order my speciality Squirrel rusks - that privilege is reserved for friends with vouchers.
Here you can see the whole thing:
That's it - my not-so-manly manly gift!! Also, while most of my Bloglanders are eagerly awaiting spring, it's fall down under in Sunny SA - I like that my present reflects the season.
I'm off to do some shopping before boy #2 has to be picked up at the airport. Can't wait to have him home.
Thanks for looking at my blog today and please come back to play.
