LESSology Challenge #38 ~ Sew Lovely



At LESSology this month, we want you to go through your sewing box to see what you can use on your project....

I keep small piece of lace because I know someday I might need it, see!


and you know I also never throw away any shopping bag, especially one that is small and cute like this one....


so the gift bag is going to house the mini album I made for my friend Anna, who just had her 2nd grand baby, it's a GIRL this time.....


and she is as cute as a button


here's the mini album....







and I believe I've posted the matching card sometime ago...


Oops, now get to the gift bag for LESSology Challenge #38




We have a prize up for grab, sponsored by...

.......................


I am leaving early in the morning for a short road trip, driving my girl to LAX, she is flying to Singapore for her internship, work in the global banking department for 6 weeks, I hate to see her go because I enjoy having her home with me for the summer. Dolce and I do a lot of cooking and baking together, and we like to go thrifting as well, now I am so sad that she will be gone all of this summer : (
but it is a good opportunity especially she is majoring accounting in NYC, this global experience is going to add some much to her resume, she just turned 19, she has bright future ahead of her with this experience on top of her 4.0 average every semester, so.... sometimes mom just has to learn to let go.....

I am going to miss Papi too...


he is staying home this time, hubby is going to work near the airport for 2 days, that is not a pet-friendly hotel, so Papi stay home and we have our neighbor coming over twice a day just to feed and play with him....
