I took a longer break then expected, I had a lot going on and I just wanted to be able to focus on life and not even think about the computer for a while. I have a tendency to get VERY sucked into the internet.
Little J graduated from Nursery School last week and since I was one of the class parents I had a lot to do for his last day. We went away for the weekend last week and then this weekend we had 2 birthday parties for some of Little J's friends and I had his family party.
I try really hard to make a point to always give a handmade gift, even if it's only a small part of the present. I saw this tutorial on MADE a while ago and I loved these little bags. As a matter of fact I need to go back to Michael's to see if they have these back in stock so I can make 2 for my boys.
I added a little flower to Isabella's and a shark to Daniel's.
I filled up both bags with some art supplies from the dollar store. I have an awesome dollar store close by and I got all sorts of Crayola products for an excellent price. I was able to fill up the bags with tons of fun things!
I always get a little shy when I give handmade gifts to people who don't know my obsession with crafting and sewing. I always feel like they must think "Wow, this chick must have A LOT time on her hands!" I wish! I do all my crating after 8PM and I usually stay up way too late.
