I'm very excited, my first blog birthday is only a week away! This is so much fun. I remember when I got my first follower that wasn't one of my friends or family members. Then, I had ten followers, woo hoo, and now 100 followers! It's just so totally awesome. I just love reading all the comments, it has done wonders for my self-esteem.
So, as a small gesture of gratitude to all of my faithful followers, I have made a gift bag of blog candy. I made the little bag, I call it my Bitty Bag. I love gift bags, but the paper ones don't store well and you can really only use it for gift giving. But, with the Bitty Bag, the possibilities are endless. You can put your lunch in it,use it a purse, gift bag, crafty stuff, or whatever your heart desires. The Bitty Bag Tag was made using the Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink. I LOVE Papertrey Ink, and the cherries matched perfectly to the fabric on the bag.
Here is a close up of the tag:
Now, onto the good stuff, the bag contents! I wanted to put some of my favorite crafty things in it. But, I would need a large tractor trailer truck to accommodate everything, so this is just a sample of what I love to use.
-Eight (8) paper sack pouches, two of each color and of each style -Twelve (12) of my handmade paper roses -Four (4) handmade heart yo yo's -One (1) of my handmade notepads with a matching cherry button tag -Two (2) packages of rhinestone bling -Six (6) little Martha Stewart doilies -One (1) package of Hanna Stamps-Birthday Hanna -One (1) wood mounted rubber sentiment stamp, "Enjoy Life's Simple Pleasures"
To keep your strength up for your Beth-A-Palooza Craft-A-Palooza, there are some complimentary refreshments! One package of Twizzlers and one package of Peanut M&M's. Both a staple of my diet! Since I can't send you one of my famous cappuccinos, there is also a $5.00 Starbucks gift card, the next best thing!
