do you Missouri Star?

I love Missouri Star and Jenny
she is so real like most of us
she has some fabulous buys on her site
I go there daily for the "daily deal"

this was one of them
the glue stick AND the rotary blade for .99

you KNOW I had to get it 
it will be fun when I play with the mini kites to make
a nosegay type pattern

speaking of kites I need to cut out more of these in everyday colors 
for my niece
it may make a cute tuck in for part of her Christmas gift
she loves to cook and I am thinking of asking
her sis if she needs any pans etc
or cook book
then I will make one of these and some matching
potholders to tuck in with it
all kinds of good ideas around
I know the girls LOVED it when I gave them some of my Moms
old fashioned cookie cutters. I let them choose
as I had ten and five nieces so they got 2 a piece

I also saw another neat idea
through Spoonflower you make a fabric
using images of your own recipes
(I was thinking my moms in her handwriting)
and then out of the linen printed fabric yardage you make
dish towels
how cool is that?
you pay like $20 a yard that sounds high
but when you cut that into 4 dishcloths that are special
$5 a piece for that doesn't seem so bad
I was thinking of doing that for the nieces
and for sis in law and myself from
some of my moms handwritten recipes and maybe
my aunts recipes as well
so many ideas...........not enough hours in a day!

Spoonflower is fun. Using a favorite family recipe in their handwriting would be a great idea!
