It is the final Thanksgiving service this evening, we certainly have a lot to be thankful for.
I am still working on gift bags and have completed another three. Another games bag, which is a toss game with pirate bean bags.
Mine were filled with dried peas.
I had some fun trying to stick on the google eyes, for some reason they wouldn't stay on. I finally got the hot glue gun out and they are fixed on fine now.
The other two are a little smaller and are bags for storing hair accessories, the ribbons down the back are for attaching hair clips. The pockets for slides and bows.
I have a busy week planned this week making a batch of soap for men, I have some sandalwood fragrance I want to try. More bags, of course. Tags, cards, the list goes on. Have you started your Christmas gifts yet?
You are certainly keeping occupied!ReplyDelete
I haven't had a trifle in ages, I really fancy one. Your creations are so good. xReplyDelete
Wow. Fantastic bags. This year my family will hopefully be getting bags, not made by me, that is beyond me now, but will have a reproduction of one of my paintings on a shopping bag.ReplyDelete
Gifting is always a burden for us, so I make them too. I had a bad garden year, so they won't get much from that this year.ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous bags and the pirate game is adorable.ReplyDelete
Sandalwood....one of my most favourite fragrances. I'd love to be in your house when are making that soap.
Your pirate bags are just too cute! I have to say I am loving reading all your industrious posts! You are an inspiration :)ReplyDelete
Your bags are adorable. I love seeing what you make and I think anyone would love to receive your gifts. They're always so sweet and thoughtful!ReplyDelete
What a great idea for hair accessories!ReplyDelete
So cute, especially those pirate game bags. What a clever idea.ReplyDelete
We also found that we had to cut back drastically gift giving because of the sheer number of persons.ReplyDelete
I don't do any crafts but I do bake and I find edible gifts are much appreciated.
I love the little girlie bags for hair clips etc.. So cute.
Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!ReplyDelete
Yum...always love to see what you've fixed up for dinner with friends.ReplyDelete
You do make the best desserts. Of course they would go down well. I am sure you are enjoying making and filling the gift bags. What fun your family will have with these. I am making dolls for my granddaughters and am already hoping that I can get them finished in time.ReplyDelete
Your bags are very unique and gifts in themselves. This year, in our family, we've all agreed to only give handmade gifts. I've started embroidering some tea towels and will make each daughter/daughter-in-law a tablecloth from printed home decor fabric, too. It's the thought and love that really make gifts meaningful.ReplyDelete
Your desserts look scrumptious!
Fruit tart is so inviting. Everything is obviously a labor of love.ReplyDelete

That trifle looks delicious, and so does the tart. The gift bags are such a good idea. I'm not making many gifts this year, I knit everyone a pair of socks last year and it took up lots of knitting time, this year I want to make a pair for my dad but I think that will be it for gift knitting.ReplyDelete
The desserts look so good. Your gift bags are so pretty and cut. You are so talented. Have a great day!ReplyDelete
Those are just too cute, my friend. I have several things cut out for Christmas that just need sewn together, but I confess that I have not been "motivated" to finish my projects. Thanks for the inspiration :) Hugs to you!ReplyDelete
Super original, cute bags ! You always have great ideas !ReplyDelete
And delicious too ;)
Your bags are so clever and fun.. and home-made gifts are the best of all. And having them as games too.. just brilliant. Have you gotten and egg from one of the hens yet? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
It does become hard to do something for everyone as families expand, but your gift bags are so creative and better than any store-bought item, Lorraine. To answer your question, no I have not started any Christmas gifts. We usually wait until the grand parents give us some ideas.ReplyDelete
Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
The bags are really very beautiful and so original ! Even with smaller families making gifts becomes difficult, everybody has everything ! So a small little personal thing is nice I think. What I hate is when they ask money ! That doesn't look nice under the Christmas tree !ReplyDelete
You are so very talented and must have so much patience , Beautiful gifts xxxReplyDelete
Where do you get all these ideas? You're certainly the most creative lady I know.ReplyDelete
I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information. https://ritzz.net/ReplyDelete
