Calendar and Gift Bag

There is a contest going on at Oh My Crafts blog spot. All you have to do is use an item purchased from OMC.

I used the nestibilities I purchased to make the below calendar.

I finally took pictures of the calendar I was working on and I also made my first gift bag!
The pictures aren't the best. I just got a new camera and am still figuring it out! So please excuse the bad photos!

The calendar I made is for my DD's little soroity sister. I started the calendar at August and went through July. I figured why start it at January of this year, when she receives it the year will be almost gone!

Here are the pictures!

This is the gift bag for the calendar.

That's calendar #1, I have about nine more to go!

Have a great day!

Oh the joys of moving! I have moved way too many times throughout my life time and here I go again!

I really am excited about the move, its just the process. I am excited about settling into the new place and getting everything just so, its the packing and the actual move that I don't like!

We got a lot done tonight. I am hoping that we have everything except the necessities packed and ready to go tomorrow. We are planning to start moving some of the boxes over on Monday evening and hopefully everything will be moved on Tuesday. We have a few people lined up to help so hopefully everything will go smoothly!

I am already going through withdraws. I want to make SOMETHING, anything! I hate packing up all of my treasures. It makes me really sad! But I will have more room for my crafting supplies at the new place. I won't have to sit in the middle of the apartment with my goodies and try to keep things looking somewhat organized...LOL! We all know how that goes!

Well, its getting late and I think the fireworks are about over. I didn't get a lot of sleep last night due to the noise and people having a good time. That is one of the many things I am looking forward to at the new place, QUIET! Anyways, that is all for tonight.

Have a great night!

I don't know what happened, but my most recent posts are GONE! They were there the last time I logged on, just the other day, and now they aren't there!! hmmm...I have never had that happen before!

I will repost the project that I had posted.

The other news I had is that we are moving next week! A very sudden and unexpected move, but we are both very excited! We are going from apartment living to country living! I can't wait! We will have more room and a yard again!

I don't know how often I will be able to post because I may not have internet until the 23rd. They said they would try to get it hooked up sooner, but we will see how that goes!

Well, I reposted the project, posted it and guess what??!! It was here again! I really don't understand what happened, but it's back...LOL! Just gotta love the internet!

I don't know when I will be able to post again, so until the next time, have fun and be safe!

Happy 4th of July!
