Very fun. Love the unique gifts and special things to you. The desk is a "Secretary." That will be perfect for Seminary!

Such wonderful gifts! I love the desk & typewriter too. Have a wonderful, warm day.


Oooh... I love looking through all of you fun gifts. Enjoy your classes... I'm in school again as well and it is a lot of fun this time 'round.


Hey, love your gifts! Also, would Janna mind sharing how she made your rice pillow? I have a friend with a "girl surgery" coming up, and I'd love to make her one...


Your gifts are lovely Joanne. The needlepoint from your grandmother is precious. My youngest teen would love to be pecking at those typewriter keys!


Fun gifts!
