Sharing a little "welcome gift" I made up for missionary Sally Sebo who shared about her passion (orphans in Romania) last Thursday night. You can't listen to her presentation without being stirred -- she's probably my absolute favorite missionary speaker!
I wanted to make up a welcome basket for her, but since she is only in the states for a few months every couple years - and a lot of that time is spent traveling around and sharing about her work - I wanted to keep the gifts simple and light so as to not overload her suitcase on her return trip.
I figured that she could always use some snacks on the road, and since I like to include at least one thing that isn't "consumable" I opted for a small clutch.
I used this tutorial from A Rosie Sweet Home as a basis for my clutch.
I didn't have any extra place mats laying around at this time, so I made up something similar (though smaller) with some jean material and a pretty plaid.
Someday, when I get the time I'll make you up a tutorial of how I did mine.
Here's what I included in it:
While I'm sharing about Sally's visit --- here's a pretty fruit basket one of my generous and thoughtful friends made up to help in entertaining her! It was as delicious as it was beautiful!

What a lovely gift! Perfect for a visitor traveling. Love your clutch. Great use of the jean material. The fruit basket your friend made looks yummy.Safe travels to your missionary friend.
We love Sally, too. What a sweet, sweet basket of goodies. The clutch is adorable. So many people complain about their kids being PKs, but I never felt that way. And one of the absolute best blessings was that they had the privilege of spending time with missionaries and evangelists.
