Day 14 Make & Give: Making for the Sistahs

Today is the fourteenth day of my special holiday season of giving. From now until December 25th, I plan to make and or do something special for someone I may   or may not know.

I’m hoping that these little acts of kindness will inspire my readers and their friends to do the same!

Yesterday I had the honor and pleasure of getting together with a few of my nearby art sistahs. It’s a sweet little tradition that we have to meet up in NYC , walk around at the Holiday Pop Up shops and have lunch. We share our recent going ons regarding family, work, art projects and ventures. There’s always a lot of laughs and then there’s the gift exchange… Now my sistahs are tres tres talented so I have to definitely be on my creative game! Every year I gift a journal of some kind. One of my friends has commented on how she loves my “dress” themed books. I changed up the design and this time used sewing pattern tissue as my background, cut out and sewed little dresses made using my hand dyed fabrics, added new and vintage trims, tied ’em up with bias tape and tucked them into machine serged cloth tie bags with a few journaling supplies. Sweeeeeeeeeet!    And least I not forget, the ladies gifted me back with their gorgeous handmades. Lucky me!
