Gift+Card for a Domestic Goddess



Happy birthday to my sweet friend Robin, Domestic-Goddess-Extraordinaire. Seriously, she's amazing--she even has her own very successful chocolate/cake/candy business--see it here.

A homemade pleated apron is the perfect gift for such a friend. Don't you agree? Looking forward to giving her this gift tomorrow! (Nanny's vintage rolling pin not included.)

Snagged this apron pattern and tutorial free online here. If you've never been to Darby Stickler's blog, prepare to enjoy and add her to your "Favorites" list forever. While you're visiting, you'll find an entire list of fun tutorials. Don't you just LOVE the blogosphere!

A handmade gift needs a handmade card, right? And since Moxie Fab World is having an Around the House challenge, this sewing machine card fit in just right. Click here to see the amazing entries. You just might be inspired to enter the contest, too!
