Laundry Bags

Happy Monday.
Thanks again for not going anywhere
while I wrap up a few things around here.
I’m nearly at the point where I
can devote more time to other projects again…
and tell you what I’m so excited for.
Sorry to keep you waiting.
I’m not only a blogger but a mommy too
and a sick Chicken Nugget required lots of cuddles this weekend
and there was nary a moment to wrap things up.
Gratefully, my mother watched the babes
while I whipped up a wedding gift on Friday.
 His and her laundry bags.
With a lavender sachet that holds a piece of chalk.
(Next time, I’ll write in cursive with a chalk pen.)

In addition to money,
I like to give a gift as well.
I told you I was a little old-fashioned. 

How about you? 

And, I’m a blogger
so one photo simply will not do.
Here is my new label.
I found a vintage, rubber stamp set complete with
two sizes of letters and numbers for 50 cents
at a yard sale over the summer.
With a little fabric ink,
I decided to use it for handmade labels.

What do you think? 
  I went simple with the wrapping.
Brown craft paper, embellished with a crystal,
hemp rope, and a vellum quote.
“When I saw you
I fell in love,
and you smiled
because you knew.”

I wasn’t able to attend the lakeside wedding
on Saturday so the husband went stag.
This mama wasn’t leaving her sick baby for nothin’.
Back to the laundry bags,
I posted a tutorial a while back
on how to make them.

The laundry bag is also
listed in my Etsy shop,
which should be fully stocked with other sweet things
by mid-November.
It’s huge and I use mine everyday.

I was going to post a To-Do list 
of upcoming projects that I have planned
but this post is long enough.

I’ll add the list tomorrow.
(You’re going to love them!…I hope.)

There’s still time to “air your laundry.”
Party closes Tuesday at midnight.
Thank you so much for linking up,
or displaying my button,
or just stopping by for a visit.

And, welcome new readers.
Thank you.

    Thanks again for all the sweetness, Carol

  25. Hi Jami, What a fantastic wedding gift! These bags are adorable.

  26. Sorry your little one was sick. I always want to be home when mine are too, and they’re all getting bigger. It’s just part of being a mama I guess :-) You have some lovely photos here. That is a perfect gift!

  27. Hello Honey Bunny! (Pardon the term of endearment but I just can’t help myself lol) I’ve missed you so! Your wedding gift is just divine and I’m going to have to check out this etsy shop. I can’t wait. The chalk is just the sweetest touch, and I’m sure after they are married for a while they will be able to fill in the blanks with all kinds of stuff…teehee. I hope the nugget is feeling better today.

    I hope things are going well for you this week! :)
