Countdown to Christmas: Day 3

Happy Friday...seriously, TGIF!

I'm back again with my Day 3 bags for the kids:


{well actually it's just one of two of the bags today}
EDITED to add bag #2!

Originally this bag was a different design, I decided to re-design it when I saw it uploaded on my blog in Preview form.  I'm much happier with it now and  I'm glad that I added a poinsettia bloom because now I only have like 98 of them....LOL...and that Pink Paislee brad?  Love it...dehoarded it...patting myself on the back for using what I have:)

These are obviously easy smeasy...just a lot of fussy cutting and you know me, I gotta do a smidge of stitching or it just doesn't seem finished to me.

Yesterday the bags were filled with Japanese Gel Pens:)  I never know what they get until I fill the bags in the morning.  Did I mention how much I LOVE the Japanese dollar store?  :)

I have a ton of projects to work on this weekend along with finishing my Xmas cards...I realized that my list was much too long so those that don't get Xmas cards will get Valentine's Day cards:)

Love little kraft bags! They just make me happy with their sweet size, and I love how you've decorated them. The stripey paper is so happy and I adore the snowman and snowball sentiment. The pink just makes me smile.

I like your thinking on the cards, I might just do New Year's because there is no way I can finish Christmas ones! These bags are so much fun, and once again, it is a wonderful idea!

What a fun little bag... dehoarding is good and Christmas cards are over-rated (ha ha, I just did photo cards, too much pressure).

Yay for dehoarding, girlie and for one fabby project too! I love this sweet idea of filing those envies with a treat on the countdown to Christmas (which is scarily close!)
Oooh guess what I got this week? One super duper card from YOU! Thank you so much! There's a card heading your way across the pond, hopefully you'll receive it soon :)
