Made by Alison

It's 8 days away from Christmas and I am all tired out. I have been cleaning house and shopping like a mad woman, while preparing for a birthday party AND celebrating two birthdays in the family two days apart. At the same time, I am also trying to prep for our Christmas break. It may be a little bit of an understatement to say that I am overwhelmed.

I had just returned home from taking my kid to an unscheduled (read: emergency, sort of) dentist visit. It's cold and rainy outside and having stayed up too late last night, I just wanted to curl up in bed even though it's only 3pm on a Thursday afternoon. Instead, I made coffee and flipped open my laptop.

Facebook reader, Alison Allan-Harper had sent me a message. I clicked on it and saw this:

OH. MY. GOODNESS!! How awesome is this?!! Alison loved my idea for a Pull-Out Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder and so she made one up except that she made it even better! I LOVE her project and especially the back with the checked boxes. How clever is that?!

Thank you for sharing your gift card holder, Alison! I was feeling so drained but you have energized me and put a big, fat grin on my face! Nothing makes me happier or more excited than to see a reader put my project idea to use. Thank you for letting me share your project with my readers too. You rock!

  1. Aw, that is so sweet! That just makes me so warm and fuzzy on the inside, making the rain and cold slip away. What a great idea!

    1. That's exactly how I felt when I saw the picture! Warm and fuzzy and I didn't even had my coffee when I opened that message! I got a kick out of looking at the photo alone. It is such a cool project!
