Belated gifts

I am the queen of good intentions.  I have a list of projects I want to do...I just don't always prioritize very well.  Case in point.  Here is my dad's Father's Day Gift.  I only gave it to him a few weeks ago.  I'm still sorry about that.

I had seen this idea on Anna's blog, had the covered button kit...but just didn't get it done on time.   I was thrilled to see my dad using one of the bookmarks the last time we visited. 

Second example...a fabric basket for my brother.  He needed something fun for his home.  I used cut up jeans for the handles and bottom.  It was only a couple weeks late this time.

I share this info, if only to make myself more accountable.  I don't want you to think I am perfect in anyway.  I've got my weakness and foibles like everyone else.  I guess the conclusion is, I still got it done.  Hopefully I can reduce your guilt-load and mine as well.

I really like those fabric button bokmarks. What a fun idea!

....and who isnt the best at good intentions. The ones who are on top of everything, just make the rest of us look bad ;-)

I totally understand! This coming from the woman who was intending to work on gifts for grandparents this month and has yet to start even 1 after 27 days. Nice!

And I didn't mail my parents their gifts for mother's day and father's day until August. However, I had them all ready to mail back in May. Hmmm . . . only took me three months to do it. ;)

I am always happy to hear from crafters who are as deep into procrastination as I am........sigh. 8-)

I am that way too (I have the annual Christmas album for my parents laying around here somewhere). But you still did it.

I like the denim basket.
