This past week has been a busy yet crafty week a few of the projects I completed are displayed below.
I had a wedding to go to and found myself in need of a formal dress length garment bag, so the first thing i did this week was, take a bolt of bold flowered fabric that I picked up at the local thrift shop for 6$ and make a bag for my dress some think the pattern is too bright but i really like it I have a white vintage Samsonite over night bag the goes wonderfully with it as far as I am concerned but please let me know what you think.

My next project was to get a dinner put together for a new mom in my mommy group. I started by making a little taggy style blanket for the baby, some crayon rolls for the older siblings and then cooked a lasagna, breakfast bars, baked some croissants ( not from scratch) , made some jam, baked some cookies and some cereal snack mix so that she not only had dinner and gifts for the little one but some snacks for through out the day. I've included a few photos below but and still not great at remembering to capture every thing so some things are not photographs and the one of every thing together is taken in my car with really bad lighting.

|Cereal Snack Mix - for the kids to snack on|
|Cereal Bars - my favorite mid morning (or anytime) snack|

This past week I also made a selections of tarts for my sisters best friends wedding as part of her late night snack table but totally forgot to take pictures with is too bad as they were all mini and really cute. ( I promises I will get better at this)
Finally I made a vat of salsa and canned it but since I still have another pot to make this weekend I will save the photos for another post once I have all the tomatoes canned!
have a great long weekend and next week i will share my salsa recipe, a few last min birthday gift ideas and a tutorial on how to make bracelets from clear plastic shower curtain rings. ( I made these last night with my 11 year old niece she enjoyed it, and took home supplies to make more with her friends)
