Jennifer Hadfield is my #1 all-time blogger to follow.  She is brilliant and her Blog (Tatertots & Jello) is amazing. I’d like to share a nifty gift idea for a neighbor, teacher, co-worker, friend … anyone!

I am making these for my grand daughter and a few for neighbors as a good-bye note when I move. I enjoy giving inexpensive – and most importantly, practical/useful gifts.

She has a link to Amazon but I buy the EOS lip balms at Target.

Happy Spring, y’all!  🙂
