Weekend Wrap-Up, May 9 - Tissue Cases and I Spy Bags

This past weekend I realized that I only have a week (less, now) before I have a booth at the Kirkwood Spring Fling Artist Market here in Atlanta. I'm now officially in 'freak out' mode! So, I started feverishly working on goodies for the market. I was going to make some zippered tissue cases like I've done in the past, but decided to go the quicker way since I need to make a ton. So, here's a tissue case, non-zippered! Isn't it cute? Of course I didn't have a small pack of tissues handy to stick in there, but you get the idea, right?

This is a great way to keep tissues neat and tidy in your purse, backpack, diaper bag, on your desk, wherever you need it. I know my pack of tissues always somehow gets messed up and then I don't want to use them. Dirt or something yucky always seems to find its way in there, even in a semi-clean purse.

I made about 9 of them altogether; above is a sampling. I love these little things! I'll have them available at the market on Saturday, and afterwards in my Etsy shop.

I also started work on some I Spy Bags. I'll do a more thorough post on I Spy Bags at a later time, but it's basically a little bag filled with little trinkets that has a window for kids to search through and see what they can find. The little trinkets can include buttons, pennies, charms, anything that's little. Stay tuned for more details! Below is a pic of the piece of a bag that has the window. Still needs to be put together! These will also be available at the market, and later on in the shop.

And finally, as you all know, yesterday was Mother's Day. My day started with a breakfast in bed of Froot Loops, yogurt (that I was expected to share with my 2-year old), orange juice, and coffee. Fortunately we all managed not to spill anything, and it was a fun family time (I did share the yogurt). We went to church and enjoyed lunch afterward with my mother-in-law. Naps (myself included) followed that, and then, then, I got to craft uninterrupted for a few hours. Divine! I hope all of you mothers out there had a wonderful day like I did!
