Birthday Treats

Today is my niece's birthday, and like my daughter, she is a college student preparing for finals. I thought she might appreciate some sweet sustenance, so I made her some chocolate chip cookies. I bought an old-fashioned looking container to put them in, but wanted to dress it up a little. Because she likes pink, I had an idea of what I wanted to put on the front, and found the perfect thing on Free Pretty Things For You. I found the image here. Isn't it sweet? Thank you Keren for all the wonderful graphics you share on your site. Here are the birthday goodies all packaged up and ready to take to my niece. Happy Birthday Tara!

Betsy Anne,

Aren't these the best kinds of gifts...to give and to receive? The commercial was right when they sang "nothin' says lovin' like something from the oven." As far as I'm concerned my family can love me with cookies all year long! =D

When my mother in law died, my daughter's best friend's mother gave us a cookie jar filled with homemade chocolate chip cookies. It was one of the best (most comforting gifts) we received. Love your sweet container.

Hi, What a lovely gift....and more so considering you have added a very personal touch! Now isn't that sort of thing the very best of presents where giver and receiver both enjoy it.

Keep well

Aw, how sweet! Can I be your niece, too? Ha-ha! No, I can only have cookies on the week end so those would tempt me too much! I can turn down store bought anything but home made? Forget it!

I've been surfing on-line more than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's
beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web shall be much more helpful than ever
before.
