Today's Goodies & I was Inspired by Another Blog!

Today was a pretty productive day, craft wise and other wise. I started off the morning with the littlest one and me going up to middle son's school to watch him do his 1 mile run...Little man and I even joined him for the last half mile. They ran, I walked! :-)
Then Little man and I came home and had popsicles (it hit the 90's today!!!!), and he played the Wii while I got my books together for an upcoming inspection at my husbands unit.

Once 'work' was done it was time to play...I decided to take a break from mini making and make some more pieces for my upcoming craft fair. (barely 2 weeks away!!!)
So I made an adorable Potted Flower. These pics just don't do the colors justice...I'll try to get better pics of everything tomorrow. I also made a cute little cf-style flower fairy, but she just came out of the oven, so pics tomorrow.
The Harvest Angel is actually a piece I made back in the Fall, and my mom has spoken for her...but I realized I had no pics of her. I was playing with my camera and got down on the floor with our dog Zeus. The old man is such a good dog, especially since he turned 11 in January. I think he's such a handsome boy, don't you!

Earlier today while reading through my blogs, I came across an entry at Katie's Clay Corner about her miniature gift bags, made from calendars and wrapping paper. Well, I got to thinking...I have tons of scrapbook paper out in the garage, and I need some kind of cute little bags for my craft fair for earrings...SOOOOO I searched on the internet for some free templates and made some sample bags! Personally I like the purple style better, one it's actually a little easier to put together, and (once I use the right size hole punch) I think it'll be the sturdier of the two. So tomorrow I am gonna print off a whole mess of bags, cut 'em out and glue 'em up! Thanks Katie for the inspiration!!!

Well it's late and hubby is already in Nighty Night all!

  1. Sorry for missing this post earlier....Glad you thought about the scrapbooking paper....I did my very first bags and mini shoeboxes using scrapbooking paper, and I must say it is much stronger than the calendars!! I love how you made some for your earrings...Your customers will love that! Must say...I was pretty speechless to see you talking about my blog, thanks for making a girl smile!
