Arts and Craftiness

I have not been able to create anything for a while. That makes me a little bit crazy, so I like it when I have an excuse to cut and paste and stamp.

Our show recently opened and I was determined to make a little somethin-somethin for the other "wives" of the brothers in the play.
(Me and a few of the "wives", plus one brother that can't resist a photo op. We are in our Egyptian costumes, which are just too fun too miss.

ANYWAY I found some amazing graphics for an amazing deal at the Cute and Cool shop of Itkupilli, and so I made these little tags by using her graphics, adding a saying, and topping it with my favorite stamp.

I stuffed little bags with the tags, some chocolate (a backstage must) some gum (an onstage must) and a few crackers in case anyone needed a snack.

These were surprisingly easy and I will definitely be using this idea for future friends/sister/neighbor treats. I am always happy to find a simple thing to pull together that looks cute. I got the luggage tags at Staples and the bags at Hobby Lobby.

I am also happy to say the EAR is completely better ( who would have thought earwax could put you in bed?) but due to the disgusting details, I am not posting about that. I am feeling SO MUCH better for a few reasons (different post), and instead of telling my friend that cuts my hair to just 'trim it', I decided to actually get a new style. I know people say cutting your hair isn't that big of a deal, but I feel like a new woman.

AND PS- my kids started school yesterday!!!! Shhhh, don't tell...
I may just read blogs all day

Your hair is precious. Did you decide what catagory you fit in yet? Congratulations, on a little free time and the opening of your show. Wish I was close enough to come see it.

Love love love the hair! I'm getting a new look today, too. I think it may help me get a new lease on life. :) The power of hair!

I have to say, that although I know it's been a long time since I've seen you, I DID notice your awesome hair cut the other day when you came by. It looked so stylish and healthy and young. It suits you.

Wish I loved my haircut as much as I love yours.

I loved your hair! The new cut is great. I'm going for a long look these days, but instead of a long curly tousle too often looks like a stringy mop.

The tags turned out really cute. I may have to get some of those images. You are really good at doing tags and I need some good ideas for the swap I'm in.
It was great seeing you. I can't wait to see your show....with ALL my daughters!


I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

God Bless You ~Ron
