Friday's Gifty~

I have some people I need to visit in the next week. And since it is FINALLY spring, I thought I would take a little spring in a pot! I picked up these 3" terra cotta pots from Michael's and covered them with decoupage and paper. 

I have this plant you see. It's a Wandering Jew. This plant is actually a clipping off of a clipping of the original plant. These little ones I just put in are clippings from my clipping... are you following??? Actually this is like the 5 or 6th clipping I have taken from my ONE plant. They grow so well and are just SO lovely. I actually have a hard time throwing any of it out, so I put it in water, wait till it regenerates its roots and re-plant it. I have pawned it off on SO many people and will continue to do so. But at least this time it looks pretty ; )
I dug out my bamboo skewers (they were being used!) and attached it to a little medallion that I stuck in the dirt. Just a little note to send along with the plant (to help it stand up!)
Of course I couldn't stop there... I had to make matching cards too. I want to give a little love to these ladies and who doesn't love a big button and a plant?!
Here is the second set. This is SUCH a fun and really and easy project. And I think it makes a delightful gift. And that is all for today, and for this week! I actually have two more gifts I need to do, but they are for Mother's Day so I probably won't share them for a bit. Thank you for joining me for Nifty Gifty Week! I loved hearing all your comments and ideas. Thanks for sharing your love and may you have a wonderfully FABULOUS weekend!!
loves to you~
