Last week I finally revived my crafty creation mojo.
Not that I haven't wanted to be crafty,
I've just been b-u-s-y.
So, here's what got me going.
I have a sweet friend who is going through a divorce.
She and her adorable girls moved into our neighborhood,
a few doors down from us.
Since we'd already shown up at her house once without a gift,
I had to get with it.
Home Is Where Your Mom Is.
Ever since I found out she & her girls would be starting over,
that line kept running through my mind. :)
I started with a Multipurpose Container,
$3 at the Dollar General.
Once at home it was time to fire up my trusty Cricut sidekick.
I cut all my letters on brown vinyl.
Next it was time for the tricky part...
appropriately space and place the letters .
Much harder than it seems. :)
Now the yummy part,
add in all the goodies!
Ok at this point,
I must have gotten a little excited.
Because before I knew it I had added ribbons.
Oh how ribbons can take any project
from drab to fab.
Check out the cute heart on top.
No detail too small! :)
So please tell me,
do you think it's as fabulous as I do?!
I really enjoyed my crafty creation.
I loved that it was an inexpensive
and practical gift .
Because anyone who's ever moved with children
knows you need handy snacks.
And, long after the snacks are gone
she has a sweet reminder that
Home Is Where Your Mother Is.
Thanks for stopping by.
I can't wait to hear what you think! :D
