Okay- This Is Fun

Still posting from the library, girls! The repairman hasn't even called to set up his house call! Ug! I miss you all!

Please keep in mind that I've never had a little girl to dress up so Instead, I do things like this! This is the wreath that I made and that Karyn won in my recent give away. I knew I wanted to wrap it up pretty and make a tag to match- so I did! I wrapped the wreath in some of the same fabric that is in the wreath and I added some tulle and a jewel.

I made the tag reversible. Little did Lisa know that when she sent me a Birthday card, she was also giving me CRAFTING SUPPLIES! I hope you don't mind, Lisa! Do you recognise the "card"?

I've been coming down to the library every morning at 9:00 AM. There is no one else here this morning and it's so quiet that I can actually write! All I need are my slippers and my coffee! ☺
Have a great week end, girls and I hope you enjoy your wreath, Karyn!

Hi Sweetie!
What a gorgeous package and I love the tags! Karyn will be thrilled!
I wish you lived closer, I would send my husband over to fix your computer! He is a computer genious and an IT manager in real life :) He would have you fixed up so fast! Maybe he could fix it for you via email or phone? What seems to be the problem with your computer?
Love ya sweets,

I could not imagine not ahving my computer!! I would go nuts!! hehehe! Good thing my hubby is a computer nerd! We have like five computers in the house for 2 adults and one 5 year old. Kyle is so ahead of the other kids when it comes to computers, it's funny!

Lisa said...

Oh sweetie! So sorry about your computer! I miss you too! And no I don't mind at all! How clever you are to reuse it! I usually keep them until I toss them a few years later! Now I have a new purpose for them!!!
Happy Halloween!

the library is the greatest resource, isn't it?

your packaging of the present is perfect!


Vickie said...

The wreath and your how you wrapped it is so beautiful! I also use old cards for crafting. Drives my husband crazy that I have kept Christmas cards from a few years ago:)

When I take Adela to the library there is hardly anyone there in the kid section. We usually have that to ourselves for at least an hour. Very nice:)

Oh Holly, I'll be So glad when you get your computer fixed! I miss you! It is nice that you were able to do this post today. Thank you, I know it's a chore for you at the library. It is so pretty how you wrapped this wreath up to match it. I bet she hated to open it. I hope you have a nice weekend. I'll be thinking of you! Twyla

Hi Sweet Friend,

Just thinking about you and hoping you had a lovely weekend! I hope your computer is fixed!!

Love and hugs,

Holly girl, I miss you blogging from home but your dedication and "don't let them down attitude" is to be greatly measured! I had to smile, when I thought of beautiful you with pink bunny slippers, two curlers in your hair and a cup of java entering the library. I bet you were the talk of the town...imagination is good when your computer is in sick bay. Sometimes life is all about, doing what it takes to make it happen.

Hey Holly!
I love that little wreath and matching tag! It's all adorable...Lisa is one lucky girl! Of course, I have to say that all of us girls are lucky, for having known you Holly! I hope the repairman shows up soon! Fingers crossed here!
Big Hugs,
