I wasn't able to buy a gift for her last week, but luckily, there was an arts and crafts fair last Saturday (where my friend Mansy and Hey Kessy had a booth) and Marc and I were able to put together a cute little present before heading to the baptism.
We bought a hand-painted handbag from Stars for Dreams and filled it with two other goodies from other stores: We included a pretty little felt headband from Felt It! and a cute little keychain monster from Artist Madhouse. I'm quite sure that Summer herself wouldn't be able to use these things just yet, so I made sure her mom (my friend) would like the things we gave too!
We didn't wrap the handbag itself and decided to just make a nice card/tag for the zipper. I cut out a card and stamped my elephant on it and wrote our message on the back. Mom couldn't resist drawing on the elephant to add to the design ^^. Oh, and I bought a couple of rolls of washi tape from Hey Kessy, which we used on the card as well. I'm glad my friend loved our present :)
Here are some photos from the reception:
Summer with Tita Ninang!
After the reception, we headed on over to the parents' house for an afterparty hangout where beer was drunk and hair was braided:
I did a crown braid on Arianne!
And a fishtail braid on Kim:
And a headband braid on Katty:
Works well with her bleached hair right?
PS: I couldn't resist getting myself a keychain monster from the arts and crafts fair! Surprise, surprise.
PPS: Oh, and another goodie to show:
Yes. Russ gave me his distortion pedal! For free! The Universe loves me...
PPS: What's on my needles? Another prototype of the Lily of the Valley hat and some prototypes for a headband design.
