I love the new Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP). I made this gift bag using one 12 x 12 sheet. “Open me Already” is from the Stampin’ Up! Balloon Adventures stamp set available beginning Jan 4, 2017. Do you like the Whitsper White Mini Pompom Trim? I think it looks adorable on this gift bag. I love the little birthday hats on all the animals too!
Here’s the directions to make the gift bag and another gift bag I made using the Candy Cane Lane DSP.
At Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) this morning we discussed John 7. Basically it talks about how God is in control of the world. It’s very comforting to me, given the things going on in the world today.
This afternoon was my first time to be in my house alone without any construction workers or family members. My pups and I were very happy to finally have some alone time after a couple of months of people here daily. Tomorrow the construction guys are back to tidy up a few things on the list. If you are wondering if I have any regrets about doing the construction, the answer is absolutely not. We saved, planned and dreamed about it for over twenty years and we truly do love it!
Keegan started taking weekly voice lessons and is pretty fired up about it. He’s trying out for a solo in his vocal jazz group.
Abby just got done with a big scholarship application. She is trying to get most of her college paid for so she can afford to go to medical school or grad school to do Alzheimer’s research. I can’t believe in six months she’ll be graduating from high school.
Steve installed a sound bar on our new TV in the sun room. It’s amazing how handy he is. He also washed the pups for me because I’m doing therapy dogs tomorrow.
I hope everything is going well for you during this Advent season.
