I'm a big fan of the blog Free Pretty Things for You and the person behind FPTFY– Keren.  She is such an inspiration to us all, isn't she? So creative and generous! So I jumped at the chance to work on a holiday project with some of her fabulous art. Here's a fun little Christmasy gift bag you can pull together in no time at all.

    The link you give for the little bluebird goes to Flicker. Flicker will only allow me to save as a webpage. How do I get the actual picture of the bluebird?
