A Christmas Gift for My Sister

My Harold Gale Pink Santa

This year I am making gifts for some of my loved ones.  I wanted to make a purse for my sister and I loved my collage purse so much that I thought I would make one for her.  My sister loves religious jewelry and girly things so I decided to make her a purse and include the Lord's Prayer and some special things just for her.  I ordered a great heart from Michelle at Designs by Shell that served as my inspiration.  I used a card for the Lord's Prayer and I added my sister's name to personalize her purse. I added a cross with a little bit of sparkle but not to much. I added all sorts of lace and ribbons and of course her very special two sided heart with Proverbs 3:6 on it.  I think it turned out really nice and I hope she will love her new purse made by her very own sister - Beverly. 

Leave me a message and let me know what handmade items you are making this year for Christmas gifts.  I will be here sharing my Holidays with you all, so be sure to drop by anytime. 

Until next time...

Happy Holiday Crafting!!!

Oh and my pink Harold Gale Santa is just showing off.


  1. What a lovley gift! I'm trying to make bits this year, but had a difficult few months so not able to make anything 'big' just little bit and pieces.

    Did you use the prayer card on the bag or copy it somehow? And where did you get the hearts with the quotes on?

    I'll hopefully post some images of things I'm making, but for now I still have a post from last year with decoration ideas on my blog

  2. Thank you for your nice comment. the print on the front is a graphic that I made using printable fabric and my ink printer. It was a card that I had and some other graphics. I used PicMonkey to make the collage. The heart came from Designs by Shell. You can find her on Etsy and there is a link to her in my post. She makes beautiful things. Hope this help and hugs, Beverly

  3. Beverly, it's stunning! She will not only love it but cherish it! Great job!! You have such a talent and putting lovely things together to make more lovelies!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing it with us for Pearls and Lace Thursday!
