Driving Me Banana's!!!!

OMGosh! Can you believe that the children will soon be needing Valentine treat bags for their classmates? You might even be thinking of giving little goodies to your friends or co-workers. Here is a little project that you can quickly whip up with scraps and things in your craft room.

Choose a plastic zip top bag for your little treats (you can use conversation hearts, m-m's or whatever you like). I found some nice bags in the craft dept. at Walmart that are reasonably priced. Cut cardstock for your topper a little wider than the bag, and tall enough for your stamped image. Decorate, add stamped image, and attach to the bag. You can use double-sided tape to attach it. Don't get too fancy, as the person receiving the treats will probably tear it and put it into the trash. You can make these quickly, and even the children can help!

Welcome 2010


Saying goodbye to 2009 last night was quiet but fun. The boys and I had a wonderful meal outside on the patio. Gary and Peter made a New England Style clamboil, except here in Florida we substitute blue crab for the lobster. It was nice and cool outside so we ate on the patio. After a leisurely and late dinner, we came inside and watched home videos. Gary and the boys decided to watch part of the Twilight Zone marathon,and I snuggled in my cozy bed with the dogs and tv.2009 has been quite a year, and we already have lots to look forward to in 2010--Ben graduates from high school and heads off to college, Dave and Jenna get married in July, and Gary and I will be celebrating 25 years of married life.
Hoping that 2010 is the best year yet for all of us!
