...that can make everything I can and has made herself alot of stuff already??

i usually frequent the "bag" thing but she makes those and has some pretty cool ones.
this probably helps... i sew and crochet very poorly and can't knit. i can glue things and cut things out.. i can draw... uhh..... yep.


she's pretty unique and likes unique girly things....and hello kitty... well.. sanrio stuff in general.
i've thought about recepie cards and a plushie?
ugh. i dont know.

How old is she? I'm assuming we're not talking about a child?

The cool thing about those of us who craft is that we appreciate handcrafted items. I can do a little bit of just about everything, but would still cherish something handmade. So, just for the record, I don't think you can go wrong.

That said, I like your recipe cards idea, particularly if you fill a few with your own tried and true favorite recipes. My aunt did that for me when I first moved out on my own and then each Christmas for a couple years would add to the collection with her favorite cookie recipes, etc. And plushies are always fun. Smiley

Could you cover a journal in fabric for a recipe book? Or decoupage one? Or decoupage a pretty box to hold cards? How about a photo album with scrapbook-ish inserts to hold recipes? I found this to show you what I mean: http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/mag/articles/article.1390.p1.html

I think crafty and personal is the way to go. Smiley
