It’s in the bag! ( with cards)

May is usually one of the most hectic months we have at home, a lot of birthdays, a lot of engagements, so I am really really happy and exhausted when it’s over.

But what I like the most about this month is all the good things we share with family and friends, all the smiles and joy that it brings! And what a better way to share good things than to create them, right? So, one of the upcoming birthdays is of a girl we all love very much! She is a daughter of my best friend and I always enjoy doing more artsy things for her and her sisters.

 Part of the present for her birthday would be a very special bag.The actual bag I bought at Target and then I decorated it myself.

Since I know her sister would love to have something similar, I decided I might as well make 2 bags, here is the second one:

I really hope they both enjoy these as much as I enjoyed decorating them!
As a finishing touch, my son and I made 3 cards ( 2 for the bigger sisters, one for the little one). I should say I helped him, but he chose the ideas and colors and did some of the work himself.
