Christmas Gifts for Friends (with a Mistletoe theme)
Friends and I usually exchange small gifts for Christmas. This year I knew exactly what I wanted to give and was so excited that I was on top of things. But things did not go as smoothly as I would have liked, in that I waited to the last minute to start making the felt mistletoe that I wanted to give away. Making the felt mistletoe was a complete failure from the beginner. I tried several times to follow this tutorial but each time it just wouldn't come together, and so I switched over to a different kind of mistletoe and finally, my mom, who I had pulled in to help me, and I decided that it just wasn't working and I should order the mistletoe. Of course, even though it was guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas, it arrived promptly on December 26th! Thus, my friends received mistletoe for next Christmas!
Continuing my mistletoe theme, I made our favorite lip balm for kissable lips and gave red polish for happy mistleTOES.
