For my mom, the non-appreciating of the Stampin' Up! stuff mom, that I've talked about many, many times here. Do you think she will like it? Do you think she will feel bad for me again because she thinks I 'have' to make handmade gifts even though I've told her for 10 years that I 'love' to make handmade gifts? Do you think she will keep the gift cards and give the book back to me in a month or so like she does everything I give her? Sounds sad, huh?!
After this many years, I just have to laugh about it and keep doing what I want to do and not worry about it! In fact, I'm kind of amused by each reaction as I watch her open it or hear her on the phone tell me 'that's so cute, honey, what do you want me to do with it?'. She just doesn't get it. Gotta love her!
I used the Mini Pocket Book tutorial available on the right hand side bar or the tutorials page of this blog.
