Please Pray for Us

Hi everyone. We live in Live Oak Florida and if you've been following the weather you know that we have had more than our fair share of rain. We had been fighting the water for almost a week, doing everything we could to keep the rain from coming in our house. I sewed sand bags until my poor sewing machine was exhausted and so was I. We loaded and filled sand bags, had trenches dug and yet the water kept coming. Two days ago we had to admit that we couldn't fight it any longer and it wasn't safe for us to be in the house anymore. My husband carried our littlest to the suburban, my oldest daughter helped my son out then my husband came back to help me. We have been staying at our church. Well, we woke up this morning to find a huge sink hole about 30 feet in front of the church doors. The police came to let us know that if it moved closer to the church that we would have to leave. Right now, it has stayed where it was and I am so thankful for that. I got on here today to ask you all to please pray that we are able to get back into our house soon and  that the damage is minimul. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated.
God Bless

RAK from Tricia (alittleshabbychic on YouTube)

Tricia lives in the United Kingdom and they don't have large craft stores like we have here. Well, she had mentioned that she loved the things that she saw in the Michael's Haul videos she had seen. So the last time I went to Michael's I picked her up a few things. She was so sweet and in return she sent me some awesome goodies all the way from the UK. I loved everything she sent and, of course, all the amazing things she handmade for me. I love handmade gifts and I wanted to share it all with you.

Hey everyone! I have completely fallen in love with this online store and think that if you check it out, you will too. The prices are incredible. If you use tulle or organza in your projects you will definitely want to check this site out. They have the most beautiful organza and in so many pretty colors.

Handmade Paper Bags

I have seen so many people use paper bags to package gifts in their RAK's or swaps and I have seen different places that you could buy them from. So I thought that I would give it a try.
I had found some scotch shipping paper at Wal-greens and it was a little thicker than I had wanted but I'm sure you can find rolls of craft paper where you pick up regular wrapping paper or back in the craft department. I think the thinner paper would probably work better.
I used the butterfly fairies stamp set from Stampers Best, that I received in a RAK from Kerry Duff.
I purchased my Tim Holtz distress inks in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye from Joann's.
So here we go. . .
If you can see something you think I can do to improve on this, please feel free to let me know.
