Speaking of backtack...

...I'm all done! Woohoo! I guess I had been giving it more thought than I realized because when I got started Saturday morning, it all just flowed. Awesome! I'm so happy with what I've put together. One of the best parts was that I was able to work with materials I already had so I could put the bulk of the budget into tools my recipient would need for her wish project. I spent a tiny bit on embellishments for the bags, but that was it. I so wish I could share more, but I want my recipient to be well and truly suprised by her package! Another thing about this project that turned out to be a pleasant suprise is that my recipient is very different from me! At first, I found that very intimidating, but what I discovered is that it stretched me creatively. I'm so happy with the final product and without this challenge, I never would have created it! Okay, nuff said. Once she receives it I will share some pictures.

(just need to dig out your addy again..sheesh, I'm hoping I saved that e-mail now...doh! )I'm so sorry it took me until the last minute to finish it up. I think I'll overnight it so it'll get to you by monday, or saturday really I guess?
