Genie Bag

Good morning gang!  We had a huge thing happen this morning……we had an inspector from Residential Child Care Licensing come to our house for a HUGE inspection.  They also ask you 300 questions and you pray that you answer them all correctly so you don’t get in trouble!  So, I spent all day yesterday cleaning, checking all the plugs, going over and over my paperwork, etc.  It really is huge — kinda like the inspections that day cares have to do and restaurants.  So, I was a little uneasy about it all.  So many teeny tiny things they can “call you on”………BUT WE DID IT!!!!  We did not get caught with any violations and the lady was so very nice who did it!  YEAH!  Unless you are a foster parent, you probably don’t realize how huge this is!

So…….now I have to go out of town with the baby for the rest of the day and won’t be able to stamp until way late tonight.  BOO!!!  But here is a little project that is called a Genie Bag.  I am making some of these for gifts at an upcoming event.  They are super fast and easy.  You can make them any size, depending on the size of bag you purchase.  These are very tiny, purchased at Michaels, and come in many different colors.  You know me……….I navigate toward the pink every time!

The silk flowers are from the Pretties Kit, and the center flower was colored with Pretty in Pink Re-inker.  The rhinestones also come in the Pretties kit.  This Designer Series Paper is discontinued, but you can use whatever is in your stash.  I am trying to use up all the old stuff so I have an excuse to buy all the new papers in August.   You should do the same, don’t you think?

Have a great day……..mine will be a little long and boring……but it just goes along with the territory when you are a foster parent.  The good thing is, my house is now spotless and I now have more time to stamp!!!  Once I get back in town……..
