How was everyone's Thanksgiving weekend?? Anyone do any Black Friday shopping?? Or how about Small Business Saturday shopping? or Cyber Monday shopping? Isn't it funny how we have an entire weekend devoted to super sales during a holiday where we are supposedly grateful for what we have?
Anyway, this week is going to be pretty hectic for me...the long weekend brought some much needed rest since we were all super sick here for a couple weeks! Now it's time to get down to business and get some things done! Normally we'd be getting Christmas decorations out and put up but right now I'm trying to get swap items made, and homemade items done for a holiday shopping open house that my sister in law is having at her place on the 1st!
I'm a bit behind on the open house items, but this is my last swap package to go out for a while. Thank goodness. I'm even behind on blogging about the things I've been receiving. So, just to tide you over for now, until things can settle down, here's a pic of what I'll be sending over to my partner. It's secret, so I can't tell you to whom or where it's going.
I finally gave in and purchased some super cute chevron twill ribbon from Paper & Pinafore! A super cute shop with uber cute paper items. But the best part was how cute the ribbon came wrapped up with twine and Havilah even threw in some samples of her colorful bakers twine. LOVE!!!
Friday night I did have to sit down for some last minute sewing and put together these 2 pouches as bridal shower gifts for a shower I somewhat hosted (if you can even call it that, I more just showed up and had the girls play a couple games). I used the chevron twill to add a little tag to the pouches. Love the way it looks and will be using these more often than I thought I would. I may be putting in another order really soon!
