I suppose I needed a break

And I took one. We've been moving some stuff to the new house and I've been cleaning cleaning cleaning. I can't wait to have out stuff there and my new Crap Room set up! We've picked up a desk and some odds and ends, they just need to be painted. And I plan on painting the walls...I can't decide between pink (the obvs choice) and turq/aqua. Who's tired of house chatter?

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of meeting The Crookedstamper and Paper Batty. We had so much fun talking, we didn't make a thing (which was our tentative plan). But I made them each a matching little goody pkg of 2 Hero Arts shadow inks wrapped up pretty. I'm very pleased with how these turned out because I started off with no plan whatsoever, I just knew I wanted to do a paper flower of some sort. Sometimes flying by the seat of your pants pays off.

Good luck with the moving and painting - and even though you didn't ask for a vote, LOL, I'm voting for turquoise - because it goes so well with pink! Love the pretty flower packaging for your gift - isn't it fabulous how a simple bit of paper can dress up a present?
