Emma's Birthday is Coming....

Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by today!
So, how was your Thanksgiving holiday?  Ours was pretty low-key.  My boys were not able to come home (both had to work) so the hubby and I managed to get several things checked off of our "Christmas to-do" lists.  We wrestled in our 12 foot live tree and the house is almost completely decorated! I can't wait to have my entire crew home for Christmas.

I did get to have my sweet Emma over to spend the night on Friday and Saturday (something I am very thankful for).  When Emma spends the night, she wants to do 2 things - go to Hobby Lobby and make something in Nonna's craft room!  So, we made our run to Hobby Lobby then got busy with paper, Cricut carts and glue!  Emma's birthday is December 23rd, but her party is going to be next weekend - so we got busy making a few goodie bags for her guests.  Emma wanted everything to be decorated with cats and the color purple. So this is what we came up with....

* Goodie bags from the candy making section at Michael's
* Grand Labels 11 Spellbinders Die
* Create A Critter for the kittens
* Worn Lipstick Stickles for the noses
* White gel pen for "stitching"

* I typed up and printed a little thank you note
* Next I used a Labels 11 Die to cut them out and had Emma sign her name
* These were added to the bag of the bag

Emma was really happy with the way her goodie bags turned out!  Best of all, we both enjoyed our time together crafting away the afternoon!

And that's about it from Emma and Nonna today!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,

  14. Fabulous bags. But best of all was the time you got to spend with Emma. Thanksgiving afternoon my 12 yr. old grandson and I spent time in my craft room making duct tape wallets. No cricut but still creating. And this 12 yr. old boy wanted to spend time with me. The 9 and 7 year old were in and out, they were only interested in getting a wallet. lol

  15. Tanya, the goodie bags are so super cute! I love the layout and that kitty is my fav-o!! Sorry part of the crew had to work...but looks like you two were able to make the most of it.


  16. Aaaaw, how FUN for you to have a day with sweet Emma!! You both did a fabulous job on the treat bags and the kitties are adorable!~ I can't wait til Arya is bigger to have days like that!
    Super cute!
