It's Saturday! Another first... I'm blogging on Saturday...wow! 2008 is becoming the year of firsts! As promised earlier... I've posted some pictures on the photo site ( www.flickr.com/sewwunderful )
You will notice there is an abundance of Wonder Wallets. Well... they aren't really Wallets anymore...they have become WonderKits!! Sewing Kits, Office Kits, Coffee Kits... you get the idea.
It's part of the February Goals for the 25 Weeks of Christmas Group. One of their goals this month is to learn to think outside the box... and their project is to make theme based wonder wallets based on people they want to gift for. A wondercuppa...either coffee or tea added to a coffee mug and coaster or napkin makes a great personalized gift for the coffee or tea drinker. A wonderkit filled with personal items like shoe shine cloth, extra hankie, extra tie tack, lint pickerupper, is great for the guy on the go! Fits into his toiletries bag, or jack pocket or briefcase. Have a look at the photos and think about someone on your gift list who would appreciate a Wonder Kit.
If you are playing along... February goals for the 25Weekers are as follows:
Start Gathering... get some zip lock bags and index cards... gather all of the supplies you need to make your gifts and put each on in a bag... if it's complete, put READY on your index card and put it in the bag... if you need some supplies, put them on the index card and put it in the bag, but put that bag at a different place... we'll do something additional later on.
If you haven't done so... get your christmas card list ready. Find some christmas cards and put them in a zip lock bag... this time of year is a good time to buy cards on cheap specials.
Also... as you are gifting... think about the person you want to gift... really think about them... likes, dislikes, hobbies, things they do, or don't do... etc... it'll make it easier to have the perfect gift for them
And lastly... think outside the box.... See above... when is a wonder wallet no longer just a wallet? When it becomes a WonderKit! Tailor it to a specific person on your list... or just make'em up. As you are gathering for your gifts... look for those novelty fabrics you bought and didn't know what to use them for... now is the time!!!
Have a wonderful week!! Happy WonderKiting!!
