Presents for my Peanuts

My daughter loves  presents.  It's totally her Love Language.  It's mine, too, but seeing the joy on that little girl's face when she gets a present makes me almost as excited as if I got one, too.  (Notice, I did say *almost*! Ha!) Well, what kind of present-giver would I be if I just handed her a small trinket and said, "Here's your gift!"  I mean, there is a certain amount of excitement and joy when you are handed a small, brightly colored package, so I indulge her. Because I'm a crafty lady, I have made my own gift bags a few times.  Here's one that just melts my heart: Yep!  That's totes adorbs. And it's the perfect size for a 2-pack of Shopkins or a Thomas Mini (for my son, whose Love Language I haven't quite pin-pointed---Gifts isn't quite it---but like he would say "no" to a present!!) Here's how we make it. Supply List: Birthday Memories DSP #144118 Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbo

5 Minutes or Less!

July is rapidly approaching, which means summer is in full-swing with social events (parties, BBQ's, family reunions, etc., etc.)! I love  to host and attend parties!  (I also love to eat food and drink wine, so that could be why!)  But with this time of the year being so gosh-darn busy, it is hard to find the time to put my usual "flair" on decorating for my own parties or creating gifts for the host/hostess of events I'm attending. So, I've created a way to make stunning decor pieces and quick and simple hostess gifts that I (and you!) can make in 5-minutes or less! Let's get started. Gift Tag  A bag of cookies and a quick little gift tag makes for a stunning presentation for a host/hostess and family!  You can even stamp out a number of these and be ready for all of your gatherings in no time flat.
