Crafty Gals are Free!



Hi All!

O Happy day! I hope you're having a good one.

Today is the 5th so that means the Crafty Gals Blog group is at it again.
This month though we had so much going on from the Holidays that we decided to make January's challenge a very easy one. Our challenge this month was "Anything Goes". So, we can share anything we have been working on. We just had to show something today on our blog. :)

I've had my hands in quite a bit of stuff crafty lately, but not a lot of finished projects. Anyone else out there know what I mean? Ugh...
Anywho, here's two projects I did, very simple, but of course, that's me, simple. hahaha

First off, I didn't have a chance to share these goody bags I made for Christmas to give out to friends. I made no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies and then put them in cello bags with a patterned paper tag that I punched out and then punched a tiny hole in them and attached them to the bags with raffea. Simple, but cute.

Next,
 I have had this red card stock and these 3 pictures laying on my craft desk for over a month. I just never seemed to have an idea of what to do with them. Then I thought of the sketch at Twisted Tuesdays Challenge blog and thought....."hmmmmmmm, this will work!". :)

Here's the sketch at Twisted Tuesdays

and this page is the double layout to THIS PAGE I created a little while ago and posted.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Please be sure to check out what the other Crafty Gals are working on. Their blogs are listed in my right sidebar. ---------------------------------->

Until next time...
Blessings...

Melina, I need a cookie, now. Thanks! Those treats are such a fun/good idea, not to mention yummy!

Love your layout, too... great showcase of some adorable pictures!

I love the idea of the gifts for friends - it's not so over the top and has that personal touch. I wanted to do something similar this year but never got around to it. Another goal for the year - make more time to do things for others. Thanks for the inspiration.
