Now, I made something, but I'm not sureI should give it to her. I found this awesome vintage fabric. The designer is Marimekko and it's circa 1972. I made this little bag last night and lined with vintage white linen. I think it's cool, but this sister is a bit picky (she dislikes going to thrift stores with me because she thinks their "stinky", but she's sometimes into teh whole vintage thing). So I'm wondering, should I go ahead and give her the homemade gift? Or, should I get her something from the store? Or, should I do nothing, because I'm not even supposed to know she got me something?

This year my siblings and I decided we would simply pick names for gifts and not buy for everyone. There are five of us and when you start adding in-laws to the bunch (in addition to Dan, Mike's girlfriend - who I'm guessing will be an in-law in a couple years) it makes it a little hard on the pocketbook. So this seemed a great solution for us, that is, until I found out some were breaking the rules. A particular sister of mine (I won't name names) apparently purchased a gift for me, though she did not have my name. Normally, I would be completely fine with getting gifts, but now I am in a tuff position (by the way, I wasn't supposed to find out that she got me something, it was an accident). Should I get her something, or not??
