Hi there, friends!
I have to admit…I am playing catch-up here at home since being back from SNAP! conference. I’m almost caught up on my emails and laundry…and I am finishing up sign orders. But most of all, I’m being sure to spend time with my girl (who I missed like cray-cray) and my man (who will be heading out of town for work soon), because let’s face it… family is most important.
* Disclaimer: we are an alarmed and armed house. FYI.*
(Just in case a creepster is reading this. That disclaimer isn’t for my bloggy friends…you gals are my peeps.)
Speaking of SNAP! conference, I wanted to share the roomie swag I brought/made for my friends, Bev of Flamingo Toes and Michele of The Scrap Shoppe. I was so lucky to room with these girls…after being online buddies for 3 years, we finally got to hang out in…*gasp*…real life!! More on that fun later…
So, what do you give/make two of your favorite creatively talented blog friends?
Well…more “stuff” to create with of course! Plus, some inspiration for more creativity…
Rather than using gift bags, I gave the girls totes filled with fun goodies. I stenciled on a quote that reminded me of the both of them and fastened a felt flower and couple of rolled fabric roses to it also. I made a chalkboard tag and tied it to the tote with baker’s twine. I gave the girls cupcake liners, large washi tape, glitter, pad of paper, pen, ribbon, a blank apron to beautify, and chocolate (not pictured…eaten). I made them both a hand painted wooden sign and gave them a few things from my shop (not pictured).
Here’s a close up of the sign I made…inspired by a favorite scripture.
If you know me you know I LOVE giving gifts, so when the girls squealed and “ooooo-ed” and “aaaaaa-ed” over the goodies, my heart was happy.
Thanks to Bev for taking beautiful photos of the swag for me! I totally spaced it before rushing off to the conference.
I’m hoping to share more from SNAP! soon. Stay tuned :)
