Out of my element

Good Wednesday morning everyone!!!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I am slowly but surely checking things off my list of things to get done.
I was hoping to post this sooner but I forgot to take a picture and then forgot to bring my camera to the birthday festivities last Saturday.  I tell you what though, I was spoiled.  My parents bought me an iTop tool with some of the accessories so I can get started making my own brads.  My sister and the fam bought me a labels 8 nestability dies.  I cannot wait to start playing, I just have to wait for some time to play.
My family, the hubby and kids, bought me some great things to prepare for the baby.  Things I wasn't expecting to get, one of which is a Vera Bradley bag.  I will probably end up using that as a diaper bag at least until the baby grows out of needing a diaper bag.
For my sister I made her a cute little purse that I was drawn to thanks to someone else I know online but as far as I know does not have a blog.  Here is the link to the instructions.  Since it has been a long time since I have sewn anything it took me a bit longer than it should have to make this purse but it was fun and now I know how so it should be easy to do again.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Glad you got pretty much what you wanted. The bad did turn out great! Things are a little more confusing the first time you make them at least for me anyway.
