For My Sister

I come from a family of five. I am the oldest and I have one sister and one brother.  

Personally I like this picture better. Haha

My brother is in the army just ending being stationed all the way in Hawaii.  He will officially be back in the states this month.  My sister lives in our hometown in Wisconsin. She has always been the the relational one.  She is still very close to two of her friends from elementary school, not to mention keeping in touch with numerous others.  She is the one that calls and texts often, makes sure everyone remembers birthdays and anniversaries.  She is also the one that is constantly admiring my work and asking me to make cards and gift boxes for her friends.  And that makes me feel good about my work.  I am lucky to have her. :)

Recently a friend of hers had surgery and a group of her friends decided to put together a gift basket.  After receiving a gift box from me for her birthday, my sister asked me if I could make one for her to give to her friend.  I created two gift bags, one for her and one for a friend of mine for her birthday.  

You can find the supply list on the Emma's Paperie blog right here.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
