I am here today just to share a bit of inspiration.
Sometimes we think that we must make something fancy for gift-giving, but we don’t.
Just remember that anything that comes from your oven is made with love.
I know that with all the wonderful sources like magazines and Pinterest, it can be so tempting to get super fancy…but we don’t need to.
Sometimes the tried & true is just perfect on it’s own.
I made a banana chocolate chip bread in a mini-loaf pan for a friend.
It wasn’t fancy….just my usual recipe.
But then I wrapped it in waxed paper, added a paper doily and a heart-shaped Valentine and tied it up with baker’s twine.
The love was in the care with which I made and packaged it.
Simple & pretty. Made with love.
Sometimes that is all we need.
Thank you so much for visiting me!

Angie, your posts are like a little ray of sunshine. Thank you for not hiding your light under a bushel.
Peace! ~ Kim
That's a wonderful idea, thanks Angie.
Where do you buy your bakers twine? I haven't see it anywhere that I shop. Thanks.

I am a total sucker for cute packaging and this is darling!
I just started a new Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party on my blog this week – would love to have you stop by and share! http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/finding-the-pretty-delicious-linky-party/
That is so sweet, Angie! My favorite "go-to" little gift for someone who might need a bit of "uplifting" or even a "thank you," is a mini-loaf of some kind of sweet bread tied up with a bow. Those little things usually bring the biggest smiles.

I love this! It's such a cute idea for wrapping up goodies. I wish I could pin this, but I am at work on a borrowed computer. Need to pin when I get home! Very cute and I just bought heart shaped dollies too!! Might be time to bake!! 🙂
This is so cute!! Hope you can link up at my Trendy Tuesday party!! http://www.sweetlittlegals.com
