My friend Julia and I have been buddies since 1st grade. I love that we still keep in touch with each other. She is truly one of my oldest friends (not by age...she is 27, but you know what I mean). Julia is nearing the end of her fourth pregnancy. Yes, she has been busy in her 20's! I'm very excited to be attending her baby shower tomorrow.
One thing I hate about buying gifts is that you end up spending so much on gift wrap and cards that you can't afford as much gift as you would like. I decided to forgo traditional baby shower gift wrap and come up with stuff around the house so I could spend a little more on the gifts.
dressed it up in different ways. I still had a roll of craft paper left so I decided to use that and a brown paper bag I had laying around. I fancied it up with pom poms that I made. I just happened to have yarn colors that would match the crochet booties I commissioned Melissa to make for the baby boy. For the tag I used a cute little card that Becca had given me. She gave me a whole stack of them around Christmas. I have so many crafty friends!
