Friendship Gifts--April 2011



My "Friendship Gifts" for the month of April are very simple...Jelly Beans! With Easter not arriving until the end of the month, I thought everyone would love to be nibbling jelly beans all month--and, they are fat-free! I found the cute lavender & pink polka dot cello bags at Michaels, filled 'em up with the jelly beans, tied up the bags with lavender and pink gingham ribbon, and attached tags I stamped with a cute little rabbit! Voila...my "Friendship Gifts" are ready to go. I bagged up a lot of these so that I can give them out to guests who visit my home, offer them as a "Hostess Gift," or just give them to someone to brighten their day! "Friendship Gifts" Very easy...very festive! Thank you so much for visiting with me today. On this first day of April, I'm enjoying the Spring season...still holding back on the white shoes & pants and patent leather shoes until Easter, however!
