WHOA!!! One month since I've posted!

Has it been 1 month since I've posted?  I can't believe it...where did the time go?  I feared life would get in the way of posting and it did.  Oh well, I'll just get back on the horse and keep

I have been very busy...Here's what I've been up to:

My sister-in-law asked me to make gift card holders for some of her dance students:

Fellow demo France Martin has a great tutorial on how to make these Top Note gift card holder purses....SO CUUTE!
