My neighborhood craft fair is this weekend. And before you roll your eyes and think, oh a little tiny craft fair...there are 2500 homes in my neighborhood! It will be great to see neighbors both familiar and new.
I'm putting some last minute touches on things and making sure I'm ready. This morning, I packaged up these cute Signs of Santa elf packets. Each holds a small hand sanitizer - perfect for teachers, bank tellers, grocery clerks, postal workers - anyone who comes in contact with the pubic during cold and flu season will appreciate that you thought of them. As you can see, I've used the Tags and Tidings bundle for the gift tags. I love that one stamp and die made light work of creating 16 tags. I was done in no time flat!
If you're in the area, come by and see me at the Briar Chapel Fall Market, happening from 11-2 in the Clubhouse. Mention my blog and you can pick a free card!
No time to type! I'm busy, busy, busy getting ready for this Craft fair. But, stay tuned for Saturday's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live where I'll show you how to make this hand sanitizer packet, plus a few more gift packaging ideas!

I just love stacks of gift boxes at the holidays. I don't even care what's in them. There's something exciting about stacks of packages tied up with ribbons and string.
These were part of my Santa's Workshop OnLine class. They're just too adorable not to share with everyone! I got the idea from Sam Hammond from Pootles. I do hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I have a chalkboard in my studio that says, "What did you stamp today?" When I first started with Stampin' Up!, I put that sign front and center, to remind myself to be creative, no matter how I felt. I will honestly say that I'm up in my studio designing and prepping at least 5 night a week. The rest of the time, I spend wondering why I'm not up there! But really...we all need a break from our routines. Even a few minutes of creativity, away from the job, mom, wife, responsibilities will bring a sense of renewal. Creativity is part of self-care. We can't care for others when we don't care for ourselves.
I finished my little chocolate care package today. Isn't that little batty-box boo-tiful? Not only that, it holds 3 Hershey's Miniatures, too! There are so many fun patterns in the Toil & Trouble Suite, it's hard not to keep playing with it. I'll be showing you how to make the Hershey's Miniatures Box and the miniature milk carton boxes tomorrow on my Facebook Live. Come craft along with me every Saturday at 9 am EST.

I feel like this care package is a game of "Can you Spot the Difference". We've had a Petit Treat box, a Harry Potter Card, a Cellobag of M&M's, and today...teeny tiny milk cartons that are just big enough to hold a single Hershey's Kiss. Super Cute, super adorable, and quick as can be to make, without any special tools.
I originally saw these cute little boxes on the Julie DiMatteo's Paper Pixie site. She made them for her son's 3rd birthday and I thought they were just adorable. Add some Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, a Gold Library Clip, and some Solid Black Baker's Twine and they make the perfect addition to my Halloween care package.
Want to learn how to make them? I'll be showing you how on my Crafty Saturday Facebook Live. Pop on over at 9 am EST Saturday morning and craft along with me.
