Library Bags, A Gift & A Birthday

I hope that everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was nice and relaxing. I spent a little time crafting and made monogram library bags for Megan and myself.

Mom had given me these canvas bags. She purchased them for a $1 at a discount craft store and had given me some left over fabric from a blanket she made. I used Word to print out the letters. I used the font Coppers Black size 500. After cutting out my letters I used Heat & Bond Adhesive to attach them.

A simple, inexpensive craft. I am so pleased with they way they turned out that I am thinking of making these bags to use a gift bags for Birthdays/Christmas presents.

We have the most delightful neighbors. She is in her 70's and he is in his late 80's. Due to a stroke over a year ago he is bedridden and is not really able to communicate. Chuck and Megan go over to visit with Bill and it is the highlight of his day. We received a call over the weekend asking Chuck to help out with something (he has become her handyman) and saying that she had a gift for Megan. She crocheted Megan a blanket!

I think handmade gifts are the best!!

Today is my birthday. All I will say is that I am thirty-something! I am heading over the my sister's house to stencil her upstairs hallway. I just might treat myself to breakfast at Chick-fil-A on the way. This evening we will be going to my parents house for my birthday dinner. Wishing everyone a great Monday!
