another Pockets and Blooms Project

This is a little gift we made at my Pockets and Blooms class.



I made the little 3x3's thinking tags, however they could be little notecards. . .either way, as the sentiment is general. We did the rock and roll technique with the limes using Certainly Celery and Old Olive.



So kewl how a little layering can give you something so cute!

Staying busy on the homefront--I have most of the baby clothes washed (please don't ask me if they are put away), and I have been trying to take some inventory. Thank goodness I found the entire bag of baby bottles I was missing. . . That was a bit frustrating.

I went to Target, as I wasn't sure what I needed or was forgetting about. . .

It is amazing what you can forget about in five years!

Then you start remembering things when you are walking down the baby aisles. . . looking at all the little tiny things :) I had a lot of fun, and I also realized I must have gotten rid of a bunch of stuff! Back to the basics I guess!

T-minus 4 weeks and 2 days!

Very cute! I haven't worked with these pockets, yet. Thanks for the ideas!

It's been 18 years since my last baby. Now that I'm buying stuff for my grandkids, I find it amazing that the industry can keep coming up with new "must have" accessories to raise our little bundles of joy. It's so fun shopping in the baby isles. Have fun!!

I've been wanting to get these pockets for a while now. You made such cute projects with it!

I love walking down the baby aisles, although my youngest is now 2 1/2. There are so many neat things out, even in the last few years.

Good morning my lovely! I love what you did with these cute little 3x3's ... the rock & roll technique with the limes is genius. My friend had her little boy yesterday ... so exciting. Not long now ..... Hugs, Emma x

I've had my eye on the new Pockets and Pieces since the catty came out. If they don't retire, I think you've convinced me to get them! All of the projects you've done are so great!

Robin,

I was cruising SCS and came across one of your Enjoy cards and decided to check out your blog . . . I ended up looking through every post! I really like your style.

I'm a fellow demo and would love to talk shop with you over email sometime.
