Two Tuesday

I hope Debi of Dly's Hooks and Yarns doesn't mind, but I decided to use her as my inspiration on Tuesdays. It's a great day to list what you're grateful for.
Two things I'm grateful for:
My wonderful followers on my blog-thank you so much for all your wonderful comments, ladies. Even if I haven't had the time to answer you yet, please know you always make me smile.
The cooler weather today-although we live in Central Florida and are quite used to the heat, it always comes much too early for me after winter. The high 50s temperature this morning was very refreshing.

I finished two projects today:
The last two dishcloths for my Stampin Up friend. Thank you, Sharon and Debi, for all your nice compliments on these. I love making them!
My second completed project is two of the items for my gift baskets for work.
Aren't these darling? They're made with paper!! The Sizzix Big Shot has a die that cuts out two purses with handles from a single sheet of paper. Just fold on the score lines, stick together with double sided tape, and add brads. Voila! And there's treasure inside...

Hershey Nuggets (which for some reason I always call Hershey Treasures). I put an Avery label on each one stamped with holiday label stamps. 
My friend and I made ten of these bee cards, five for each basket.
Now my goals for tomorrow: finish assembling the last two projects for the gift baskets, finish crocheting my daughter's slippers, work some more on my three WIPs that are trying to turn into UFOs, and start another set of dishcloths for another friend. 
I want to leave you with two links to projects I think are cool:
(cute and fun to make; I'll post pictures tomorrow of the two I've made)
(part of my growing list of afghans I'd like to make)
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)


  1. Hi Dear my friend. I like your flowers so much. They are so cute. But your very pretty gift bags are so wonderful.. This is a very clever idea. I like to make gift bags..
    Best days....

  2. I don't mind at all if you hook up and do the 'Two on Tuesday' with me - I'd like that very much. (you can use my picture if you'd like.) Have a great day. :)
