Inside the bag will be:
Sugar cookies in the shape of onesies with Bella Lynn's name across them, individually bagged with a tag that says "Thanks for celebrating with us today."

Little pink organza bags that have pink and purple candy in them.

And a teddy bear book mark (flat metal in the shape of a teddy bear) with a pink tassle.

Anyway, also on the outside of the bag will be a semi-custom made sticker. I just got the proof from the designer and it's even more adorable than I had imagined it. The only change I'm asking her to make, is to add a "!" at the end of the "Thanks for showering me with Love."

And then I decided that for my Thank You cards.. I'm going to place an order for more of the stickers, and use them to make my Thank You cards for my gifts... I love it.. tell me, honestly, what you guys think!!



I think it's too adorable!

God bless!

Thanks.. she (the designer, Cat) has several designs to choose from, then you tell her what colors you want it to be in and the text you want. Since it's not a COMPLETELY custom job, it's less expensive, but you still get personalization and uniqueness.



I'm gong to stick it to a square of light brown card stock, and glue the card stock down (hot glue gun) at the top and bottom, so to open the bag you just lift up the bottom part (detaching it from the bag)... does that make sense?

God bless!

Hmmm...i need to contact her. We have a logo, but we need to be able to put it on a circle sticker (i saw that she offers waterproof!).

Totally worth it. There are a LOT of crummy pedis out there. I hear people drive from Oklahoma to go there! I am so lucky to live only five minutes away... Totally random. Maybe I will see you there some time in health of course.

YES! I want it! I have literally been looking for this EXACT bed for a good price. How soon do you need it sold? I will only need one mattress.

I could use major prayer and positive thoughts tomorrow and Monday. Tomorrow is my court date for temp custody and support, AND I have a job interview in the afternoon. Monday is another teaching job interview. A teaching job would be a HUGE blessing to me, right now I am working at a restaurant, not exactly making ends meet, and it is hard to find childcare to work with my schedule.
