Little Treats

Hello friends
I have luggage!  It arrived very late last night, who needs sleep when jet lagged!!
Despite the late hour I wanted to open up my cases and see all my craft treats.

Talking of treats, before I went away I put together a little something for
each member of the Design Team.  Time was tight so I chose a 
simple design - Cath Kidston pocket mirrors mounted onto cream cardstock.
I printed out the wording and added my favourite little flowers from Homespun.  
The mirrors stayed perfectly in place throughout the flight and Arizona heat by using 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - 3D Dodz 
 Each mirror was placed in an envelope that I embossed with Garden Lattice,
because it is a large folder I could run through two envelopes at a time - speeded things up!
I then layered Labels Four on each one.
 Before I packed them Bella gave her approval! I created 15 in all!
Thank you for enquiring about the boys - they are doing well.
While I was away I spoke to them each day so I was fully updated with everything 
that was going on.  Elliott is back at King's today to hear the results of the latest MRI,
we are very familiar with the hospital restaurant, they do a very good bacon sarnie!

The raffle for the Charity Event is now closed. I posted out the last of the prizes
yesterday so if you are awaiting a prize I promise it is on its way.
There was just a couple of unclaimed prizes and I'm
donating those to a local group that teaches craft to children with disabilities.

Now that my suitcase is here I am adding the final items I purchased to the Mystery Box prize
and I will be announcing a winner very soon - exciting!!
Take care friends.

A lovely gift idea for the other members of the design team. I am sure they were well recieved. Now you know the boys are fine if you have a break you must give yourself some more 'me time'. Trust all goes well today. Anne x

Hi Christine

What a lovely gift idea for all the design team. Glad you have your suitcases back, what a relief.
Good luck at King's today hope the news is good, or at least better then the last time.

Lacelady said...

What a good idea for a little gift - ideal! Good to hear the boys are both doing OK, hope Elliott's results today are also good.

Great you were finally reunited with your bag though. I thought they weren't allowed to fly with a bag that doesn't have a person to go with it?

Sara Hart said...

Hope all goes well today at Kings! I am sure all the design team loved their gift, I know I would.Take care and thanks for your blog time X

Hi Christine,

Lovely news about your luggage. Lovely Mirror cards, you are so thoughful. They are lovely mirrors and haven't seen them around and about? Hope all goes well for Elliot today.

Maggie said...

Well. I love the idea of the mirror onto the card look. Didn't that work well? So good to have the embossed envelope too. Such an inspiring post as you seem to have more energy than most and still time to see to the boys. Don't forget to sleep. xxMargaretxx

Janice said...

Christine, what a thoughtful person you are in making a little gift for the design team. I bet they love the red bus design, typically British!!. Glad to hear boys are ok and hopefully Elliot's results will be positive. Now get on with all that washing that you have unpacked from your suitcase!!!! xx

Glad you're home safely after what sounds like a wonderful trip. Thank goodness your luggage is ok too. Losing that would have been awful. Your mirror gift was a brilliant idea I hope everyone was pleased. I would never have thought of embossing the envelopes!

Hi Christine,

Glad to see you made it back safe and sound, albeit without your luggage but thank goodness it has now turned up.

Your gifts for the DT are so thoughtful and very appropriate too. I'm sure they loved them. Can't wait to see some more photos and all the yummy things you can share with us. I'm sure there will be a few under wraps for now too though!

I received my winning raffle stamps today so if you only posted them yesterday the mailman must be on commission! They are beautiful - thank you so much and I'm hoping to get them inked up soon.

I hope Elliot had good news today after his MRI. He is always in our thoughts.

The joys of travelling eh!! I've lost count of the number of times my luggage has arrived days after me - we used to live in California and therefore travelled back and forth quite a lot. Not a lot of fun having no clothes for a few days with a baby and toddler along with you I can tell ya ;)

Those mirrors were lovely, I bet they were really well received.

Mickie said...

Such lovely gifts for all the team and glad you received your luggage. Have had mine lost a couple of times but always ended up at home. Prayers up for your troubles and hope all turns out well.

Craftychris said...

What wonderful gifts you have made! I bet they loved them. I am glad you have received your luggage. xx
