goodie bag goodness

I'm not one to use the term 'crazy busy' {mostly because I've made fun of too many people for using this, over wrought, term} but this week.... i'm sort of really busy. Busy with work/work {as opposed to this blogging stuff} and rounding the week off, I have an 8 year old's birthday party to organize.
In times like these I depend on my fellow bloggers to show me the way. Check out these cute, DIY gift bags posted over at lovely design
learn how to make these here

Megan -- I did similar bags when Henry was in Grade 2 and had a TinTin birthday party. I made the draw string bags, then copied a picture of TinTin and Snowy and put it inside the bag and traced and painted. Was VERY easy...

Happy Party -

PS - A so obvious but often forgotten favor for 8 year olds is a deck of Crazy 8's.

i totally agree with you on the "crazy busy" thing! that's one of my biggest pet peeves. notice that the most successful people never complain about being busy?

If only I had the crafty knack because those are too cute. My little guy's first bday is coming up and I would love to make some things for it... I am just craft challenged. Time to learn!

These are so cute and would work for teens as well. I made these in different sizes out of Xmas fabric and my family now uses them year to year to package small presents...great for recycling!

You know what i love about these is that you could do them for any age. imagine how surprised and excited my kids (teens) would be if they went to a b-day party and came home with a goody bag!?! most moms stop giving these out by the age of 10, but these are just great. thanks for the post. also...did you get a message from mixwgit? they're back! lisa
