**********************************
Here is today's project:
I made this adorable ornament gift bag using the file "Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes." The wreath on the outside came from the file "All the Trimmings."

I handmade some ornaments to go inside.
Now my story...

I have lived in Tucson, AZ for the past 7 years. I felt like a fish out of water until I had my youngest two children and joined a mom's play group. I became very close to the moms in the group and even now that our children are in different schools we are still very close and get together on weekends with the kids and during the summer.

I started, while in the mom's group, having Christmas get togethers just for the moms at my house. Each year we would get together to make jewelry or crafts. I am doing this again this weekend but with a heavy heart. My hubby took a job in Austin, TX and we'll be moving there in the near future. I would usually be packed up and out the door before my husband knew what was going on but this time it is so hard to go since I have become so close to these ladies. I will miss them dearly. 

Tomorrow at our Mom's Night In I will be having drawings for various crafty things and my special bag and ornaments will be going home with one of my very close and dear friends.

Your next stop is Corri's blog

Thank you for stopping by tonight and don't forget to come back tomorrow evening to see what I've created and to read another story of Gifts From The Heart.
