So, remember my actual doggy bag that I posted earlier?

Well, this is what is going inside that doggy bag:

On the left side is an embellished Theo Chocolate bar.  It's a local chocolatier.  How about that fun tag?  The sentiment is by Paper Smooches....the paper and chippie are Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg line.  Can you spot the upcycled supply?  The 'road' below the chippie is from a Starbucks coffee cup sleeve...I might have a huge stash of those puppies...just sayin'.  All that fun ribbon is made by my bloggie buddie Sherry!!

Here's the entire set:

I had loads of fun putting this together...hope that you'll play along with us over at LESSology!  Remember, you have until 11:59 pm EST tonight!!!!

I wanted to share some Garage Sale pics from yesterday...

I had a ton of stuff to sell...I got alotta these kind of comments:

Do you have a store?

Are you closing your shop?

Do you sell stamps?

You must have a ton of money invested in your hobby.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

I had a pretty good turn out...I even had several gals that were repeat customers!  LOL...I had 3 sales last year:)  I averaged over $100/hour...not too shabby...we just won't discuss how much the retail value of everything would have'd think my garage would be empty, but it isn't even close to being empty!  Grrrr...I think that stuff I'm planning on having at least 2 more sales before I add more stash to the pile.

Last thing I wanted to share and then I gotta get choppin' on several DT assignments {yes, I'm real time bloggin'}....

I finally broke down and ordered new biz cards:

The very wonderful Karen Baker was hugely helpful on this project...yes, it is my bloggie banner that Karen designed.  I bought the cards {notice the rounded corners?} at Moo.  Love those guys...they crank out quality stuff...I'm never disappointed.  

Okay peeps...gotta hop!


  1. I wouldn't know what to do with a garage sale like yours, thankfully we don't live close enough for me to pop over and scrounge through the left overs. I loved your business card, I mentioned to Karen how professional it looked! I'll have to send you the one she did for me :) (It's my day job, not the card "job"). Fabulous sweet treats.

  2. So those were the goodies hidden in the bag? Fabulous! Love the bird and the sentiment for the van thingy. Kudos to you on a successful sale! And can I just say that your cards are wonderful, the quality is top notch and I think you've convinced me now where to go.

  3. LOVE your doggy bag and everything to go inside of it! Simply FABULOUS!
    OMG...not sure I took you quite seriously enough when you told me you were a shopaholic...LOL...WOW...that is A LOT of stuff! If I lived closer, I'd be there in a second ;)

  4. WOW WOW WOW... these are just gorgeous !!! Love them all Sista... hugs...xoxo

  5. Love the goodies that you made to go with the doggie bag and my ribbon looks excellent on them. Notice I opened the ribbon shop on my blog today.
    Now that is a lot of garage sale stuff and reminds me of all the stuff I am staring at getting ready for the same thing.
    Love the business cards. Would love to see one in person.

  6. wow, I thought all these while where all your cards go mostly to the garage sales...
    so exciting to look forward all the sales..I wish I were shld take more pictures and share with us..
    hope you bring back with emptied basket with good sales..!! woot woot!!!

  8. I love everything!!! I love your doggie bag project and the new cards are so fab! The rounded corners are fantastic! What a great idea! I think I will steal that. I also love scrappy garage sales. I am fortunate that my (not so)LSS has garage sales twice a year before CHA so that I can clear out my "old" stuff. <3

  12. Look at those adorable goodies you have for your sweet doggy bag! That tag just makes me smile. What a fun sentiment and I love the pink cloud paper and the car. The Starbucks sleeve makes an awesome road. Yum on the candy bar, too.

  17. Holy crud!! I'm on a flight now and I'm totally going to take the rest of that stuff off your hands. haha "Do you have a store?" hehe. Love it!

  18. Oooo and WOW! Do you think you could take pics of everything so that if my husband thinks I am spending too much I can show him your stash? ;>)
