I've been busy!!!

I had to sit down recently and try to be a little craft for various gifts I needed to get done. Even though I'm sure Jon doesn't think I need a whole room for my crafts, I really do appreciate the fact that I have one. I know it won't last forever and I definately don't keep it clean but I do enjoy having one.

Tomorrow is the last day of school so I wanted to give Reese's teacher a little something w/out spending a lot of something. So I made her a gift bag with a card that attaches and inside I made a little milk container with some hugs inside and the made some flowers to stick out of it. I also made her a little card holder/purse with a few matching cards (I actually made 4 of these.. 3 for the ladies I visit teach).

Then I wanted to do something for Reese's classmates at school. Remember the old sour cream containers? Well I made about 20 of those with candy inside. That was a bit time consuming but I let Reese help stamp them as much as he had the patience for.

And lastly this week, my sister asked if I would make some bows for a twins convention thingy she is doing so I figured why not! I definately don't do the greatest job and making duplicates can be a pain but I managed to put together 10sets.

I'm always impressed with the things you come up with! I try to be crafty but the things I make always look like a kindergarten put it together! Good job!

Well aren't you just Martha Stewart. What else you got up that sleeve of yours kiddo?! Great job on the hair bows. I don't need to make Rielly do a great job yourself!! In fact, make me one! hahaha. Love you girl, you make BEAUTIFUL cards! You should sell them! I love 'em. In fact, I think you will be my official card lady. I need some for EVERY occasion! Father's day is coming up. =)
