Super Busy Party Time Week

So for our family from Oct to the end of the year is celebration after celebration.

It all starts the beginning of Oct with my brother-in-laws birthday followed in a few days by my sisters birthday.  Last Sat we celebrated my grandsons birthday at a bounce party place.  Lots of crazy kids but they were all having a blast.

This past weekend was Jack's sister Lily's birthday.  This one was at a local orchard in upstate NY.  It turned out to be a perfect fall day and one of the best kids parties that I have ever gone to.

Yesterday was the finale of the party week and it was a trip to Build A Bear to use that birthday gift card.

Well more birthday fun to come.  My other grandsons birthday is next week, my daughter is the end of November, Thanksgiving, other granddaughters birthday and then Christmas.  

Wow exhausting thinking about it but looking forward to spending more time with my favorite people.

Its Been Awhile

Well its been a few months since I last blogged.  Its just been a super busy few months and quite honestly with all that was going blogging was at the bottom of of list, but now I am back and feel ready to go.

One of the things that has kept me extremely busy after my August Round Lake Craft Fair was the flood of orders that came in for my Paper Purses.  Yikes I could not believe their popularity.  I have made hundreds of them in the past few months for showers, parties and events.

One events that I had an order for was a banquet for a organization called the Women's Fund  The organization goal is the improve the lives of women and girls to serve as a voice and advocate for other women.  The theme this year was the Power of the Purse.  My paper purses went perfectly with their theme.

Below is a sampling of some of the ones that I have made from my orders for parties and events.

I actually love making them and each one is different.

This was just for one order.

Oh well that's all for now.  Gotta to get back to my paper purse creating.
