Mary, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Oh Boy, Now I know who!!!  She is such a special person, it is an honor to make stuff for her.

On the other hand, the centerpiece is for me because:

This is a mild version of the mess my table is usually in.

Here are my centerpiece ingredients..except I swapped out the dark green tin plate for an orange one (they were treasures of Paul's Mom, and very well used).  I asked Paul what tools to use for cutting and the dear did the wooden bowl and the pitcher and let me use the tin snips and glue gun. Everything is attached except the big pitcher which I will want to use for flowers.

Not home for a few days, waiting to see what ideas I can get from questionnaire.

Colleen,  I agree ! I have things that I have picked up from years past, but I too started thinking about my special person and started making sure I pick put things that are " her" too.   So as the ideas flowed, I was buying online.  I hope to have time to make a few things for my SS. We have so much going on at out home right now, I am hoping to get my quilt room back in order today so I can work on a quilt that I must get done so I can send it to Beth.

Need to go to P.O. this morning before work.  Then I won't get any work done...thinking about my new SSS.

Zoetc49, ( why wait?) don’t wait-

that’s why we get our person so early in the year, so we have months to make and find the perfect gifts. Some of us started collecting items in January. And, the impossible missions are on going projects to include in the package too. Enjoy the process. 

Comment by Colleen Froats on April 9, 2019 at 11:51am

Lee, participating in the impossible missions also give you items to put in your box. Visit the 2018 SS posts & see what we put in our boxes last year for some ideas. 

And just have fun finding items that fit your person’s questionnaire answers and surprise them. 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on April 9, 2019 at 10:47am

I picked up both med boxes, long and flat and squarish! I have to decide later which is the best to use for the great finds I turn up with. Wink! WinK! Is it my imagination or does the squarish box look smaller then last year???
