Get Ready, Get Set, BOUTIQUE

Hello, friends.  Thanks for stopping by.  I feel like I've been neglecting my little blog.  I've been getting ready for my biggest crafting event of the year - my annual church boutique.  The Heart & Hand Crafter's Boutique is this weekend, Friday & Saturday, December 2-3, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Liberty Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Not that many of you will be able to attend, but I sure wish you all could.  That would explain my absence from my normal routine.  I've been incredibly busy making items to sell at the event.  I am very pleased with what I've accomplished, and am hoping for a very successful boutique this year - for myself as well as for the other ladies who put their hearts and hands into this special event.

I made SEVERAL of these little paper bag pockets to be used as gift card holders.  I am sharing just this one because I wanted to enter it in the challenge over at Stampin Sisters in Christ.  You can read all about this challege by clicking on the following link:

I'm also entering the challenges at Totally Paper Crafts and Stamping With the Dragon.  Here are the links for those awesome challenges:

I don't know how much I will be able to post until after the boutique is over, but I will do my best to make another post before the weekend.  I hope you are all having a wonderful and productive week.  Please leave a comment, and I will head on over to your blog to see what you've been creating.
