OK I am counting baskets in my sleep now and am totally fed up with them!

My daughter is having her birthday party next week and has invited four of her friends. I want her to feel proud of her party and I decided to make a little basket for all of the party guests. I feel like I have done nothing else for the past week but now they are finished and I just have to decide what to put in them! Tricky since I don't want to spend too much money and I don't really want to put sweets in them. I'll come up with something. I like the idea of giving a small gift that may not appear to be that great at first but that may stay with these seven-year olds forever. I can totally see these little baskets evolving from toy beds say into mobile phone beds, or from conker holders into nail varnish holders. When I think of them that way they are totally worth the time and effort I spent making them.
Ces petits paniers sont pour les copines de ma fille qu'elle a invitées à sa fête la semaine prochaine. Beaucoup de travail. Je n'ai rien fait d'autre cette semaine. Mais l'idée que ces petites choses pourraient rester avec les filles à vie me fait penser que ça valait la peine.
