Baby Gift Dilemma

Monday, March 10, 2014

For those of you who read my blog "SERIOUSLY?!?" from Thursday, March 06, 2014, you will know I have a friend who seems to be using me simply for gifts. Many advised to just send a card or ignore her altogether with, but based on how I was raised I am having great difficulties with this, so I compromised.

Rather than doing a wishing well for her shower her sister in law decided that she would buy a bookshelf for the nursery and everyone could bring (and inscribe) a book for the baby. I have to admit, I absolutely love this idea! So, I went to the local library where they have a book store filled with donated (new & used) books. All the money spent there goes back into the library. I found a brand new copy of one of my FAVORITE children's books...

This is remarkably appropriate since the baby's mother and I majored in Art History together and did our student teaching at the same school.
In addition, knowing finances are tight and that I haven't seen this woman in forever, I decided that rather than buying a gift I would use my scrap fabric and make her something. So, here is what I came up with. Hope she likes them! (the baby's name is Chloe)

    You never cease to amaze me!!!! I totally love the fact that you got the book at the library gift store!!! Not only are you giving a baby gift but you are contributing to your local library!!!!! That puts a little more "power giving" in your gift and makes it really mean something!! You are so crafty and I know the bibs are very much needed and will be highly appreciated!!!! Great job my friend!!!!
