So my daughter was down with a virus this week and she has to be 24 hours without a fever to return to preschool or day care which was Thursday. I work from home and she came down to greet me with her hair in disarray. I asked her if she wanted me to put a "pony" (pointail holder) in it and then I said, "or do you want to do it?" I wish I could have captured he face. She thought for a moment, and I could see the wheels turning thinking I never thought about putting things in my own hair, and she finally responded with YES! She immediately marched upstairs to remove the many "pretties" (ponytail holders & barettes) from her dolls hair - which by the way are really meant for my daughter.

So i'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with life lately, as we all do from time to time, and found inspiration from a recent card I made for someone else. Isn't it funny how you can intend for a message to be forothers when in fact you are the one that really needs to hear it. I love how God works that way. Enjoy!

At first thought this may be a simple choice, right? Well this past week (who am I kidding it's the past two weeks) I have chosen crafting. Now not to overwhelm you with all that I have accomplished I have chosen a gift bag and card to share with you. Keep in mind this was created two hours before the pool/birthday party with my 4 year old chomping at the bit to dispatch-us-forth-with to the pool immediately. It's always gratifiying to take something as simple as a plain gift bag and dress it up!
I use Dora paper and stickers (that i just had to have when my daughter was obsessed with Dora), the negative of a Making Memories Chipboard number, We R Memory Keeprs washer, Ribbon - Joanns, Happy Birthday stamp - Hero Arts (mayber?), Celebrate stamp - Inkadinkadoo.
As a foot note I premade a page ready for a first day of preschool picture. Hopefully I'll have the photo printed before she starts kindergarten! :)
