Enjoy Life

Hi there!  Hope you are all enjoying your week so far.  It's been reallllly windy here for the past 3 days, and I think today it's slowly simmered a little bit.  We had gusts up to 60mph, and if you could picture me trying to pull my car door shut while that strong wind is blowing .. yea .. you can go ahead and laugh.  lol!  I swear I must've looked like a fool!  That wind felt like it was going to rip my car door right off!  Wow!

Paper Purses & Pin Basket

Hi there!  Did you all have a great weekend?  Hope you did!  I got to see my little boy sing in Chapel this Sunday morning for school .. and it always brings tears to my eyes to see him walk in down the aisle with the other little ones.  I love watching him sing and do all the hand motions that they do ... I wish he could stay this little for a LOT longer.

I love it when those tiny little hands and fingers wiggle in the air, those little feet dancing up on stage and witnessing that huge smile that radiates as he sings.  It's always so wonderful to see your little ones be happy isn't it?  sigh ...

I wanted to show you another set of brown paper bags that I made.  It's supposed to be like a little purse, so the flap opens up and you can put goodies in the inside pocket.



Then I also made a little stick pin basket which I painted and distressed:


I really really enjoyed making these, and can't wait to make more!

Thank you so much for visiting me .. I always look foward to seeing all of you!

Big Hugs,
Elise
