i love chickies

so yeah... as you can probably tell, i've been converted and am now posting pictures of my projects. at least this one.
i made these goodie bags for my swim team girls "end of the year banquet" where i handed out awards and said nice things about everyone.
i wasn't really looking forward to doing the speeches and handing out awards (mostly because it's awkward seeing parents who never came to meets, and the girls aren't used to seeing me every day like they had been during swim season), but what made it bearable was the fact that i was coping with all the anxiety by making something fun.
first i filled bags with candy (all candy and bags were from the Dollar Tree... great place!). then i printed out some little tags that said...
I had a SUPER "TWEET" time
coaching you this season. Go
BHS Braves Swimming 2008!
Love Coach
i punched a hole through the tag, tied ribbon through the hole, and tied the ribbon to the bags. then i had made these chickie tags from DeNami Design stamps (circle dot frame and chickie stamps) and layered them on colorful paper and attached them to the other end of the ribbon. i made sure to cover the attached ribbon by adding a backing of paper behind the chickies.
anyway... that's about all i've done. well, i did make some cards earlier, but i was playing around, nothing serious.
i've been working on some Christmas party invitations, and i'll post the pictures once they're completed.
in the mean time, have a great Thanksgiving holiday and God bless!
