So Much Catching Up To Do

A few things I was able to squeeze in last week, in between cleaning:
My friend, who is a Nancy Drew fan, had a birthday last week. These adorable Nancy Drew Scrabble pendants are from Lori's lovely Shop over at Morning Glories and Moonflowers. If you'd like to visit her wonderful Etsy Shop click here. I decorated this container below (which was a ME box from the dollar section at Michael's) to slip the little necklace into.
Then there was a Wedding gift to tend to. I made the card below...my married daughter's idea a couple of years ago. The cake is embossed. Love, love, love it! : )

Inside of card:
Back of card:
And a little gift for the Newlyweds:
And while I was up to my elbows in glitter and craft supplies, my cute Sara asked if she could make a little something:
If you would like your very own typewriter initial necklace, I still have some in my Shop (with chain included) for $10.00. Just click here.
I'm also working hard to fill a few Special Orders for this little gal below. I finally perfected her design.
She has dozens of little steps to her, but she's worth it. : )
Even her little shoes sparkle.
I can't decide if I like the purple hanger or the orange one. I guess it's nice to have a choice.
I'll probably put one more of these in my Shop before Halloween, so if you're dying to have one, be on the lookout later. (Spoken for now...thanks so much)!

These are things you did in your spare time when you weren't preparing for company? You're making the rest of us look really baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad, ML!

If you lived closer, I have so much craft stuff I could give you! I don't use it except on really rare occasions.

You've been really busy!! I'm doing good to get the laundry folded (ok, I don't always do that!) Everything is so cute and sparkly! The wedding cake is so cute!

Trying not to squeel too loudly.(The witch is be-witching!) I have wedding projects to do this week too. Love your nest banner idea and the beautiful card. You have pumpkins up....I would think Fall decorations look great with your color scheme. We go on vacation in a few weeks and when we return home it will be officially Fall. I'm toying with decorating now, yes, in 78-degree weather. You inspire me to not procratinate! xoxo ~Joyce

I love it all! I LOVE your header! I love Fall, so once I saw that I was like, "OOOHHHH, cute!!"

Those Nancy Drew pendants are too cute. My friend and I have been known to get together to play a new set of Nancy Drew computer games where you get to run around and solve cases. We obviously don't care about growing up, haha!

I love how the box turned out! It's just as much fun as the gift.

Your wedding gift and card are beautiful! I'm sure they will love it. Which reminds me I have a wedding gift to get to work on...

And your spooky gal is darling. I love all the details you've put into her.

Your home looks perfect! and the colors are so pretty. Sara's necklace's are so cute, she is just like you very creative. I wish we all could just blog and create all day long too.
Mom looks so happy. Letting her help I'm sure meant the world to her.
