  1. My favorite gifts are the ones that my best friend has made for me: hand blown glass vase, knit scarves, fingerless gloves, messenger bag. She is my inspiration! My favorite gift to make for girlfriends are personalized decoupage boxes. I use images that remind me of them, photo copies, and lots of glitter.
