Hot Cocoa Gift

Last night at my club Erin mentioned to me that she is now an avid follower of my blog, that makes me happy since I now know that someone reads my blog. She also mentioned that she has been checking to see if my blog would update but it hasn't. I have been very busy with life the last couple of weeks and haven't had time to update.

I wish I could say that I was out shopping and getting my Christmas stuff finished but that isn't even the case. I was getting ready for our annual Youth Retreat in Angelus Oaks. We took 39 youth up to the mountains and it can be a little stressful. I had to lock the youth into going, get the finances taken care of, permission slips, purchase stuff for the snack bar, get games ready, and pack Malachi and I. Boy am I glad that is over for this year. I said all that to say this, "I have been neglecting my blog because I just had to much to do."

Yesterday I frantically worked on Stamp Club projects, I had no idea what I wanted to do for our projects. The only thing I knew I wanted to do was play Bingo with the Bingo stamp set and the Bingo Bits Stamps from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I even planned ahead on that one and purchased some extra little items for prizes. Anyway, I jumped on Stampin' Connection to see if I would get inspired or I could steal an idea. SC didn't fail me, I was able to steal this idea to make the lunch sack pouch. I got the idea from Sherry, you can visit her blog at Sherry's Stampin' Room, I think her bag is cuter than mine even though I almost copied her project exactly. Maybe I will give this cute little bag to my neighbor or something, that would be better than the alternative, leaving it on my desk or putting it in my cabinet to collect dust. I have so many project that I just can't give away because they are just to cute. What a hoarder!

I'll be back this week with the other projects from Stamp Club in a day or two. So never fear Erin, I will post again this week! LOL!
