Have You Ever Had One of Those Weeks?

Happy Friday everybody!

I know it has been several days since I posted, but I have been super busy. Izzy has been sick with a cold for the past couple of days and has refused to take naps (which is really unlike her) and Jason has a big release tomorrow at work so he has been super busy and won't be home tomorrow (boo hoo).

But I have been doing a lot of stamping and have some really exciting news to share! I have been selected to be a guest designer for the Do Me a ! Favor line at The Inkspot here in St. Louis. I am so honored. It is a line of favor boxes and tins and I have to design a couple of favors using stamps they have available at the store. If you happen to live in St. Louis or are just driving through, you absolutely have to stop in. It is the most awesome stamping store! They have a little bit of everything a stamper could want. I can't even tell you how much trouble I get into every time I go there. I just can't help but walk out with something.

Today I wanted to share one of the projects I came up with for the line.

It is a treat bag. I used the Bubblebella image from Stamping Bella and colored her partially in with my Prisma Color pencils. I can't help it, I love using them. Then I pieced her together with some blue and purple card stock and a piece of coordinating paper. Next I stamped the sentiment from Bunny Slippers by MFT stamps. I cut out circles using my nestabilities to make them look like bubbles floating out of the bathtub. Then I tied a piece of silver ribbon at the top and finished the bag by filling it up with Hershey's Bliss chocolates (as far as I am concerned this is the most important step in the process). Didn't she turn out great? I think anyone would love to get this as a treat. I am so excited I was selected. If you would like to get the full directions for this project you can stop by The Inkspot.

Before I close my posting today, I just wanted to follow up on my last posting. I know I told you that Izzy has been calling her noodle "mommy", but I am not alone. Yesterday, she was flipping through one of Jason's plant catalogs and was pointing to all the pretty flowers and saying "daddy". Now granted I would rather be a flower than a noodle (I am clinging to the idea that she thinks that I am skinny like the noodle), but I still feel vindicated.

Well, I hope you have a pleasant weekend and thanks for stopping by!

That is the cutiest bag and it would be a perfect gift to give to your favorite mother for all those times she took care of you when you were not feeling well and not wanting to take naps(hint, hint)!

Congrats on being selected as a guest designer. You are soooooo creative! Can hardly wait to see your next project!
