PIF Gifts

I am packaging up my PIF gifts so I can get them in the mail this weekend. I chose two of my favorite things for my PIF gifts (I sound like an Oprah show!). Hope all the receivers enjoy their gifts!

The first is a handmade card from India from Hope for Women. I love these cards and will tell you more about them when I have a Hope for Women giveaway at the end of next week.
The second item is a handmade coffee cuff from my friend's Etsy site Gretchen's Creations. Gretchen is an amazing crafter. She handknits the cuffs from 100% wool then machine felts them so that they fit to-go coffee cups. A much cuter and environmentally friendly way than cardboard holders to insulate your cup and your hands. Mention that you saw the coffee cuffs on Greenstylemom and she'll give you the 2 for $20 deal. They would make a great stocking stuffer! (If you email her, she'll even make you a coffee cuff in custom colors!)

Be sure to check out Gretchen's other items. I LOVE her felted bowls. I have several for me, and I've given several of them as gifts. The little ones make great jewelry catchers.

Oh Kristen! Thank you so very much! I can't wait for my goodies! (No pressure!)

I've always been conflicted about the sleeves on coffee cups. And I love, love note cards, paper, stationery, etc. excited!

I love the coffee cuff - that's a good idea, I think I'm gonna go knit a few.
