What I have been doing!!!

I am going on a 2 week trip.
My husband and I are going to New York City. Doctors appointments for a health issue my husband has. Then we are going to Charleston, South Carolina. We will be there for our anniversary and my birthday! Then to Charlotte North Carolina where my husband works.
I will have a lot of down time and I HAVE to have something to work on. I cannot watch TV ad nauseam. PLUS, This is my busy time. I need to make LOTS of treat containers for the upcoming holidays. I cannot loose 2 weeks of work time.
So, I have been cutting out a LOT of parts and pieces. 

Tiny Take Out boxes ~ probably 100 
Bottle hangers ~ just a few, maybe 10
Gift Card folders ~ just a few, maybe 20
Gable Boxes 50'ish
Pillow boxes 25'ish
Damask Snowflakes ~140'ish 
Fancy flakes ~ 120'ish
Peaceful Pinecones ~ ?
Candy Cane Christmas ~ ?

This is a start for me. I have no doubt I will need more of all of these things.
I didn't even cut my Thanksgiving containers. I'll do that when I return. 
Halloween containers are done and I have sold a LOT. Not sure if I will need more...

These are a few of my favorite things!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. Oh my goodness, you've been busy! No wonder we haven't been chatting much lately. So much loveliness all in one place. You are an amazing woman!

  2. Wow that is a lot of work. I would love to see the finished product. Do you sell on etsy?

  3. Susan, your post has inspired me to get myself crackin'-double time.
    I would hope that you use multiples of the various dies to increase your productivity;
    I'd be happy to crank some out for you as well.
    Blessings to you and your family.

  4. God bless you in your efforts to help these people in Africa get clean, fresh water! I have been to the orphanage in Kenya that our church supports and have seen first hand how desperate things are in that country. I am so amazed at how God has blessed your efforts - I guess I shouldn't be amazed - we serve an awesome God!

  5. Susan, hope you have a lovely and productive trip. Hope to see some of your finished items. (Just gotta tell you, I was looking at something on your blog a while back. I saw the purple flower avatar among your followers and just knew it had to be purplegirl. It was, but imagine my surprise when I saw her last name - it's my maiden name - small world! I'm about 1 1/2 hours northwest of Charlotte.)

  6. What a scrumptious pile of loveliness as are you--lovely. I would love to see the finished products:-)
