I'm blown away by all of the entries on my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway post! Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by to visit my blog.

I've been doing lots of sewing this week. I've always made one bag at a time but I'm shifting toward a little more production line style, making two or three at a time. I'm still making only one of a kind bags, but cutting and ironing a few at a time, sewing, ironing again, etc. seems to save a little time. Crafty Papa is working late tonight and the girls seem to have excess energy but I was able to finish two bags this afternoon.Shabby Ruffle Bag, Laura Gunn Poppy (click the pic for the listing)

The Katie Bag, Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet (click the pic for the listing)

I really, really love both of them. I think Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet Collection just may be one of my favorites of all time. And did you see she's coming out with an updated color scheme?! I can't wait for that to hit stores! (you listening Jona?!)

Sunday was my last day at Carters and surprisingly, I was a lot more sad about it than I thought I would be. I actually got a little teary as I said goodbye to everyone. Working out of the home part-time was really my only adult interaction so I'm going to have to be much better about forcing myself to get out with girlfriends now. I'm really excited about having more time with Crafty Papa and may even be able to talk him into going on a date with me once in a while (he's even more neurotic about leaving the girls than I am!).

Mostly though, it will be really nice to have weekends back to do things as a family. To celebrate, we're hitting three of our favorite spots this weekend...Ikea, PF Changs, and Disneyland! The girls don't know we're going to Disneyland and keeping the secret is killing me. They know we're going to Ikea but then we're just going to drive over to Disneyland and let them figure out the surprise for themselves. I can't wait to see their reaction!
