I’ve been working on a gift basket for our Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Protection District Auxiliary’s annual fashion show this week.  What to put in it?  Cards for sure.  A 2014-2015 Annual Catalog as well as the 2015 Occasion Catalog.  And I decided today to add a fabulous little Large Kraft Grid Journal Clutch Purse–that’s really a journal.  I got my inspiration from one made by Becky Roberts at January’s SU! Leadership Conference.  I wanted to offer something to make my basket eye catching and attractive.  I think this will do it put it over that edge.  I’ll also be including an invitation to a class for the winner of the basket and 4 for her friends.

I got interrupted in my progress of posting these photos yesterday by a call from a neighbor who needed to be taken to the Emergency Room due to a dislocated shoulder.  I left home a 1 p.m. and returned around 9.45 p.m.  Not the way I had intended to finish my day but she sure felt better.

Wonder what today will bring?  🙂  I hope it’s more stamping, even if it means cleaning in my stampin’ studio.  Thanks for stopping by.  You do help to make my day!
