    My husband is good at giving gifts. Though we have agreed not to really spend anything on Birthdays or other holidays, he still finds something wonderful. I have several poems and paintings. But the best gifts are when he gets presents for my niece and nephew. They show how much he understands me.

    I loved my silhouette all my family went in together to get me for my birthday! Crafty has to be easy for me, because it doesn’t come naturally! 🙂
