Tart & Tangy Hostess Gift


Here is the gift I presented to my hostess at her workshop this past Sat. Everyone liked it (especially Hannah) we all got a giggle when I gave it to her & mentioned I put it in a 'coffee bag' but did not decorate it since I believe in recycling & figured she could re-use it. There was a lot of chatter (excitement) and since she was sitting at the table far away, only heard 'coffee' and thought that's what her gift was. She said she had just made a pot so she was going to leave it in the kitchen - she was smelling the coffee still on her hands. HA HA (I asked her permission to call her out) it really was cute.

I got the idea for the water bottle drink from Nancy at iSTAMP - she always had fabulous ideas (and orange slices candy pouch from Lorri Heiling also on her blog). I decorated the small notebook from the $ store and notes was stamped using the rough edges alpha. I wanted to show all the different things you can making using the Summer Picnic DP (it's one of my favorite by SU!) and show off all the cute fruits in this set (both of which are only available through next Tuesday!) Pin It

After seeing what you did with the designer paper at the party (and what you did at my party), I was sold on it. I can't wait to get it and make cute things with it. Your ideas and cased ideas are great. I wish you lived closer to me so we could hang out Donna and stamp!!!!

And I got to be the lucky hostess! THANK YOU, Donna! All the goodies were at least as great in person as they look in this picture (which is still a lovely photo).
So glad it was that instead of coffee, LOL!
