Gift Giving through the Zodiac - Back to School for the Virgo student

Virgo - The Virgin
24 August - 22 September
Maiden, Servant, Perfectionist, Analyst

This series of articles features ideas for zodiac inspired handmade gifts from members of the Trans-Canada Etsy Team. Each new zodiac month will begin with an introduction to the qualities associated with the present astrology sun sign. Throughout the rest of the month I will feature items which have those qualities and/or would be a suitable gift idea for people of that sign.

This 2009 Weekly planner by MyHandBoundbooks is perfect for the well organized Virgo student. It contains a two page spread for each week as well as places for phone numbers, addresses and other important information. This beautifully made leather planner has been bound using a standard longstitch which can be seen along the spine.

Brightly coloured small flowers are associated with the sign of Virgo. This charming scarf by Jenmerritt is made of pastel yellow microfleece. The flowers are made of reclaimed sweater fabric and vintage buttons from her 'Nana's' collection. Virgoans tend to be be very careful in protecting their health and this cozy scarf will do a great and pretty job of keeping warm in the blustery fall days to come.

This very cute set of 8 mini notecards has been made by Pinkfiredesigns and her daughters. This is a great gift idea for someone who likes to always be prepared for a quick inpromptu thank-you or gift tag. They are made of high quality card stock with a very pretty geometric and leaf design.

This feature has been prepared for you by Morgen of Inkyspider Textile Designs and Kootsac re-usable bulk food bags.

I haven't been able to visit the blog on my home computer b/c it freezes, so what a surprise to come today and see my scarf included in the gift guide!!! Exciting! Extremely exciting, in fact, because I don't often see my stuff in the lineup of products selected. So thank you thank you!!! When i return from IReland, i have a feeling i will be better equiped to involve myself with the group.

I'm a Virgo and I can definitely say that I wouldn't mind getting any of those gifts for my birthday :D

Great job with the list!
