card purse/ gift bag

My parents were in town for the holiday weekend and of course mom and me did some Black Friday shopping. This year we waited until around 8am to head out. Our favorite time to shop was at 4am, this midnight thing is no fun for us so we opted out. We did manage to find a present for one of her friends and she asked if I could create a gift bag for her. Well sure I can do that! So off to my office I went. 

This could be used by the recipient for another purpose once she receives it. I am pretty happy with how this turned out. I would have liked another sheet of the pattern paper to make the handles with, but sometimes you have to work with what you have on hand. Thanks for stopping by!!

May all your handles match perfectly!

terri's treasures gift card holders

I made a bunch of gift card holders for terri's treasures for the upcoming holiday season. I had a good time making them, now it's time to set them free to new homes. If you are interested in any of these, check out my website or email me

I have even included some pictures of the inside of the holder. These are so much fun and I can make pretty much any occasion you need!! :)

newmarket halloween haunt

I will start out by saying that this years haunt was much warmer than last years. It was so bitter cold out that we couldn't stay after the parade, the poor kids were frozen solid. This year, the sun was shining and it was lovely. We had a great time as a family doing the fun free stuff the Rec Center offered (thanks to many generous donations!!)

Here is my guy striking a pose as the Hulk!! He looked so adorable all dressed up. Love him!!

Here they are together. And I actually got a smile out of Kira. Who happens to be an Umbreon (Pokemon character) Nana made her costume and she won first prize in her age group!! Most of the day she was cranky as all get out. We had had a bad week of temper tantrums and lots of yelling having to do with school and tween drama. After she won, her mood improved greatly. whew. Love her too!!

Alex was able to get into the bounce house. He looks so cute without the hands and head jumping around with all those muscles! Very proud of myself for getting this shot.

So happy we got to spend that time together outdoors. Winter is coming and I am not looking forward to that at all!

May you have a spook free day!!
