Halloween Treat Bags for 2nd graders

My youngest daughter, Sarah, is in second grade this year and I thought it would be fun to make these darling treat bags. Fry box pattern is from a lady on the cricut messageboards. I can't remember her name and I've searched for it.

New Cards using Cuttlebug folders

I'm going a bit stir crazy with this cast on, but I have one more day and then I'm free!!! Although I'll have to take it easy for awhile, but at least I can drive again. Anyways, my daughters and I wanted to try out my new cuttlebug folders so we made some fun cards. Enjoy!

My Right Foot

Hi everyone: I know it's been awhile since I have posted, but a couple of weeks ago I had surgery on my right foot. I have plantar fascitis and decided to have the surgery to release the ligament that runs under the foot. As a result, I have this big cast on my leg and foot and haven't been able to do much. I'm not supposed to walk, can't drive and certainly can't sew very well. I get the cast off this Thursday and it will take about a year before I will be fully pain free, but at least I'm on the road to recovery.

I've been spending alot of time catching up on my Netflix and reading, but ready to get back to being creative. I haven't even had a Starbucks in over 2 weeks!!!! Oh well....soon.
