I am a Mum of two teenagers, one boy and one girl and for years now I have got "Mum I am going to a party tomorrow and I need a present". I mostly love to make their gifts. But pressure.......come on.
I know what they are like and normally I am the last to know so I try to have a gift or two up my sleeve. Ever prepared........if only in my dreams.
My son came to me last year and said "I need a gift for Courtney tomorrow, her favourite colour is orange.'' Orange wasn't a colour I had on hand so a make over was needed and quick. So from my shelf I pulled down a doll that holds bangles and necklaces. I had created them for the "Handmade"magazine who had published them. Perfect for a teenage girl.
