Birthday tote & Fabric I WON !!!

I had my first win!! I was so excited and had to use some of it right away!! I won some fabric from Junebug’s world. She has a great etsy shop as well. Its full of super cute zipper clutches, pillows & hand sewn cards too.
Today we’re celebrating my Mom's birthday, so I made her a bag to hold some of the goodies!! The green polka dot fabric was just what I needed to complete this tote.





Last fall I picked up these flip flops on clearance for only 49 cents each!! It was hard to hold on to them until now (and not forget where I stored them!!).
Even though spring is officially set to begin on this very rainy & dark day, these flip flops are a fun add on to  help brighten it up a little!


Our family always reuses our paper gift bags for each other & I thought it’d be fun to add this to the mix. Now we have to see which one of us girls gets it next  : )

I'm just in awe of what you can do. And your Swedish heritage shine through it all. I don't know how that can happen, but it does.--Inger

What a fabulous idea. I am definitely borrowing this for me and my MIL - we love to trade the paper ones back and forth - this will be more fun and more durable. :)

Thanks! And congrats on the win. :)
