In my mind’s eye, I am organized. I am prepared. I am woman, hear me roar.
Reality? Meh. Not so much.
But today, reality matches mind’s eye.
I found a really talented blogger, Amy, and her blog Living Locurto. Amy generously, and I mean generously, shares downloads for making all sorts of easy, cute tags, labels, printable cards, DIY projects, calendars, menu schedules. I was reading her site and found darling Valentine’s tags that you attach to a baggie filled with treats. I made two sets, one for my bud Joe in St. Louis so he could treat the SuperStars on Friday. I made another set for Little J’s party which will be this Friday. I made 51 baggies in all.
But here’s the cool part. Because Amy inspired me and made the project simple and cute, I am finished with all 51 bags. The ones that needed to be in St. Louis this week are on their way, and Little J’s bags are tagged and ready. What a feeling to be ready for the party 3 days in advance. It usually doesn’t happen that way. I’m usually up late, late, late the night before stressing because I don’t have a plan or supplies or energy and Little J goes to school, taking lame-looking treats.
So Little J, go to that Valentine’s Day party with your head held high. You have a finished product to give out, compliments of Amy and Living Locurto.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Amy. I owe you a big cafe’ latte. Or a baggie full of candy.
P.S. All goodies, including the baggies, came from Dollar Tree! Love me some Dollar Tree.
