A is for Apricot

For some reason, I pronounce the word "apricot" incorrectly. Instead of the long "a" sound, if I don't think about it, I say the short "a" sound. I must not have ever been corrected as a child and it just stuck. One of my favorite jams is the apricot jam my mother-in-law makes, and my husband has caught me quite a few times asking him if he wanted "aaahpricot" jam instead of "aypricot" jam on his pb&j. It's weird, I know. And now you know one of my many quirks. 

Anyway, the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is all about the lovely apricot:


I needed to make a white elephant gift for a party, so I pulled the orange and teal tones from the inspiration image to decorate a tag:


I clipped the doily to the bag so that whoever ends up with my gift can reuse the tag. The gift is an act of service rather than an object, so on the inside is a simple card with my gift and contact information. 


The wrapping is a simple brown paper bag, folded in half. The bag is easily reused, too :).


If you'd like to play along with the Moxie Fab World this week, here are the details. Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
