Gifts for MIL Mother's Day

Hello everyone. I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday. I haven't done anything today but rest. I have a very bad sinus headache, and can't seem to shake it. It's rainy again today, so that isn't helping. Luckily, DH understands, and has been taking care of me today. :-)
The top photo is all of the items I'm putting in a gift bag for my dear Mother-in-law. I think she will really like it! She really apperciates hand made items as I have said before. I've very fortunate to have such a wonderful lady for my Mother-n-law, and we're taking her on our Alaksan cruise in late June. I think we're going to have such a wonderful time! I can hardly wait. It's less that 55 days til we sail again. My DH & I love to cruise. In December we went of a 2 week cruise to the Carribean and Central America. Maybe next week I'll post a few of those pictures with some funny stories. Especially the sweet little lady in Caragena, Columbia! Stay tuned for that one!
The bottom 2 photos are some note pads that I made. They were fun and easy. The bottom photo shows the inside. I wanted to use some DSP for the inside, so I ran the DSP through the 9" Xyron, and glued it to the Bliss Blue, Lovely Lilac & Certainly Celery CS. Then I cut the pieces to size. Again, I stamped each page of the note pad on the bottom right as additional decoration. I got the tiny pens from Staples some months ago. I didn't know what I was going to do with them when I bought them, but they were so cute I couldn't pass them up!
I'll try to post something new tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie
