Trying to keep current

Daughter #1 and I went to Joanne's on Friday night and I bought more Christmas flannel to make bibs.  I did not however, do any sewing this weekend.  I'll try and get out there soon so I can send the bibs out before Christmas. Also want to get started on my Christmas cards (yeah like I'm going to get those out on time).

I was a little disappointed by Archivers this weekend.  Received a $5 off on a $5 purchase so I went on-line and purchased a 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug Designs and two matching embellishment packs to start my Christmas cards with.  Well, received an email from them (after I received confirmation) that the paper pad and one of the embellishments was sold out. "But don't worry" their email said, the rest of my order is on its way.  Great, I have a package of embellishments coming and no matching paper to create the cards with.  Thanks Archivers.  Why when I purchased the items did it not tell me they were already sold out? Other things that I wanted to purchase that were sold out, told me that when I tried to place them in my shopping cart.  I miss the brick and mortar Archivers, I don't think I'm going to give on-line another chance, too disappointing.

I did manage to make three sympathy cards on Sunday.

Slow time right now

Haven't been out in the scrapbook room in a while.  I need to soon however, I need to make a tag for a raffle donation and a couple of cards.

I made several gender neutral burp cloths for an auction at work.  I ended up liking the fabric more than I thought I would.

Isn't that rabbit fabric the cutest?

I recently purchased a Dritz Heavy Duty Snap Fastener kit so that I could put snaps on items. I branched out and made a couple of bibs.  I didn't get a picture of the one but here is the second bib I made for a co-worker's little girl.

Need to start thinking about the holidays.  Right now I don't have any plans for making gifts, but that always changes when I start seeing things on the internet and in magazines about home made gifts.
