Summer Picnic Box in a Bag

Happy Saturday! Isn't this the cutest bag?! It's actually a little box in the base of the bag to give it the shape it has. Thanks so much to Diana Gibbs for posting this fabulous tutorial for the box in the bag. I'm having a Customer Appreciation Event on Sunday, July 27, and my guests will be making one of these.

The fun part is...they're all going to be different! It's also a kind of "retiring" party, so every guest will receive a project bag, and they'll all be using different embellishments, ribbons, and retiring paper. I can't wait to see how they all turn out! I'll definitely post pictures.

Thanks for all the birthday greetings and nice comments recently! Every year since I turned 40 I think I'll stop *celebrating* my birthday and keep it on the down low, but I can't seem to stop! lol! The birthday meal was great, and the second apple pie was even better than the first apple pie we had earlier in the week! (Different kind of apples, mom said.)

Oh, the movie we ended up seeing was Hancock, my nephew's pick. I actually loved it! I know a lot of critics said it had a weird plot twist half-way through that ruined it, but I actually really liked it. I happen to love science fiction, though, and don't even get me started on Will Smith, swoon. And I just realized also that I haven't been checking my gmail account, so if anyone emailed me there, sorry I haven't replied!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

HOW did I miss your birthday?! I'm so ashamed of myself! Would you e-mail me your snail mail address to I can send you a late one, Angie? Happy late birthday from one gal in her 40's to another!

Sounds like you're having a fantastic visit with family! You're such a committed blogger posting while on vacation!

Love your Summer Picnic bag in a box!
