...into finishing some of the paper craft type stuff I need to get done. I gathered up all the stuff onto the kitchen table to get started... But I am having a hard time staying focused. It is beautiful outside the kitchen window... But since I'm all about the laser-like focus I'm going back to my walk through review.
So I think about when people get to the hanger. I will set up a little table there with a guest book, some nametags and a little tri-fold table display with pictures of my Dad and cool quotes and stuff. I have the guest book done - just made it today. But number 9 is make the nametags and number 10 is make the table display.
Here's the little guest book I made. I had this little drawing pad and this scrapbooking paper. Not sure if the red ribbon is weird or not so I may take it off. I kinda/sorta like it but my husband kinda/sorta hates it...and our weiner dog Oskar sniffed it and really didn't care one way or the other.
And since I have all my paper stuff out and I'm not feeling really motivated to make the centerpieces I decide to make up the out-of-towners gift bags for people that are coming from Iowa and South Dakota and Ohio and Wisconsin.
I bought a whole bunch of Arizona made stuff like tequila suckers with worms in them (yum...NOT!), Arizona honey and jalapeno and prickly pear jelly, cool rock candy, some Arizona made chocolates (which my husband graciously taste-tested for me) and an Arizona Highways magazine.
On Thursday I'll pick a few fresh oranges to put in the bags...but look!
I think they turned out pretty cute!
Did you see my cool invention there on the table to the right of the gift bags. I love this free craft idea. Click here to read how to make this ribbon organizer. And now I am going to go lay down and take a little rest and...
Hey? What's this? How did this little piece of Arizona chocolate get in my pocket?
Oh my. That is a shame.
There is no way I can pick up all that heavy, heavy tissue paper off the top of the gifts bags so...
Maple nut candy. It's not quite Chuckles but during party planning like this some sacrifices must be made.
