Magic #13

12/24/2010
And last, but certainly not least, Penelope Harris used a newfound skill to create these amazing plaster plaques for each of us. This was the gift each of us opened on the day when everyone else was opening our gift. Thanks Penn for being our Magic #13!

What girl doesn't love a beautiful and unique handbag? (Buttons!!) This creative accessory was made by Deb Trotter. Deb says each one is different, so I am hoping the other ladies will share photos of theirs on their blogs.

Here's a close up of the photo panel on the one I (Lelainia) received. Good to know Canada is known for its great moose! *giggles*
