Our neighborhood women have swapped names to do a secret sister thing. I usually am not really big on this kind of fluffy stuff. Mostly because I tend to be a worry wart, OCD, or a total procrastinator. But I came home from Omaha (Grandpa's funeral) to find a beautiful card with a sweet message in it waiting for me. It was from my secret sister, and I had no idea what was going on! But I learned it was a little activity planned by our Relief Society to let the women get to know someone a little better. And by the time I found out what was going on my SS had already left me another cute gift.
I realized I was enjoying them, I mean really, how often do moms get these fun little surprises on their doorsteps? So, I joined in and have a secret sister, and I can only hope I am as good as the lady who has my name. She is stopping by weekly! I can't do weekly, I am not on the ball enough. But, I decided to make each gift meaningful.
So, first up- make three cute cards. I can't shell out for the nice ones at the store. I L.O.V.E. SendOutCards, but my name is on them, so I wouldn't be a very secret sister. I found some super cute paper at Hobby Lobby, and I decided I really needed to let my stamps get some fresh air!
So, here are the three cards I made, and each will accompany a gift. (We are supposed to do one thing a month for 3 months. So, my SS is definitely an over-achiever! I don't know how I got so lucky!)
This was the first card. My secret sister loves to garden, so I got her a pair of gardening gloves and some glycerin hand lotion from Bath & Body Works. I still haven't come up with anything for the next two gifts. But I still have plenty of time!
