AEDM 2011: Day 3 A gift bag

This morning just before leaving home I felt the bird house I painted yesterday looked a bit bare in patches so I added some more flowers. It has been already handed in at my teacher´s workshop for the exhibition. Yay! Done! My list checking self is happy.My working table today. Yes, it´s our dining room table. Big enough for my creativity. I´m a Super Nova when I work. :D I expand and expand and expand.
Today I made a gift bag for a pre-teen girl. I used my scrapbooking papers plus ribbon, foam alpha and butterfly embellies made by one of my classmates.
The white on our grass is not snow, it´s the fluffy cotton that our neighbour´s "palo borracho" tree is sheding now. It looks really cool.

The bag you made for Sofia is lovely. What a great use of a variety of materials. Thanks for explaining the tree and the snow-look-alikes on the grass. Had never heard of that type of tree before.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I did realize that I had put the wrong link. Love the flowers on the bird house.

What a fun post - a plethora of goodies to check out! I adore packages that are all prettied up - unfortunately mostly I use premade or simply the comic papers from the Sunday papers (that is a family tradition that I have passed along to my kids). LOVE the birdhouse - am big into birdhouses and I made one with hanging forks/knives/spoons for my garden goddess this year. I'd love to have a yard full of different kinds of birdhouses and maybe one day I'll get precise enough to make some that fit together! Meanwhile I get the $1 ones from the cheap bin at one of the local craft stores. Thansk for al lthe inspiration (and I'd love to see one of those trees - how cool!)

Your bird house is adorable. I constantly scan thrift stores for houses to make into my projects. My mantle has six of them, assorted shapes and sizes, honoring both Emily Dickinson and Virginia Woolf.

Your workspace reminds me of mine and I do the same thing... I have created a W.I.P bag so I easily store everything overnight. LOL.

So great to read of your adventures!

You know, I never thought about embellishing gift bags before. Love that idea!

Thanks for the inspiration!
