Peighton's Halloween Bag

Oh, the wicked witch who is not so wicked... It's a posh Halloween Bag for a super special little girl! I fell in love with this applique design and it's stolen my heart. I think it's soooo stinkin' cute! Almost as cute as bitty Peighton... It has inspired the start of Halloween decorating in our house and everyone is getting excited. I am not a Halloween fan, but have decorated the mantle for Halloween for the first time in life. Shocking, I'm living on the wild side today! Watch out world, I may even dress up for Halloween this year. Shall I play tricks on my family or give them treats??!!??!

Flower Necklace

Well, bat your eyelashes when you look at this! Can you believe how sweet it looks?! I saw it on and fell in love with these necklaces! Lolly's creations are so much prettier than this & I hope you go to her site to see what she has made. They really are simple and super fun to make. I only had a small window to try and whip one up yesterday. Things were flying through the air in my craft room while I dug for supplies. Then I ran upstairs to glue it all together. One eye was watching wild children & the other eye was creating this. Can life get any better than that? Love your family with all your heart. Thank God for all that He has given you.

First Aid Kit

All girls need a first aid kit. AND all girls need a posh first aid kit! Love the clear front so you can easily see what to grab quickly. I have now modified my "teacher survival kits" to have the clear front as well. For those of you who don't know me, each year I make "teacher survival kits" for my children's teachers (with the exception of our new male teacher--he doesn't seem to be into ruffles so much...). We fill them with little essentials: lotion, nail clippers, Tylenol, mints, etc. You get the idea. And this bag is all mine! It goes everywhere with us. You know how young men tend to gawk at pretty ladies? Well, that's what other women do to this bag. Don't worry, I keep a close eye on her, remind her to be modest, and not talk to strangers. Are you giggling??

Sophia's BackPack

Look at this sweet little backpack! I made it for a toddler going to preschool. It is a simple drawstring bag just the right size for a beautiful child. The dangling ballet frog was included by special request & adds the giggle factor! Sophia is quite proud to be a big girl with her very own school bag. Inside there's a special bag for potty accidents: it's lined with waterproof material, flaunting ruffles, and monogrammed with "wet happened." So funny! The teachers really got a kick out of that. I was at a loss for finding fabric... we ended up with a shower curtain on the outside and lined it with a crib sheet (also the straps). Giggle again!! Always find time in your day to laugh. It brightens your soul and everyone around you. My mother has always giggled her way through life. It's fabulous and I love our daily chats (and giggles!).
