I am frantically packing, cleaning and preparing the vehicle for our long drive to MB. I spent three and half hours cleaning Dustan's filthy truck (he is a carpenter...and had the dogs in it a few weeks back!!), putting seat covers throughout and installing Shea's new car seat. Wow - what an ordeal!!! Now it is just getting the little things done - making sure we have everything, packing so nothing flies out while we drive...getting it washed on the outside (again - a work truck that is DIRTY!!). It seams I just don't have enough time in the day!

On our vacation to MB, I am attending a Hodgson reunion in Foxwarren. There is going to be a silent auction on the Sunday and so I whipped up some of these little pouches/change purses to donate. I used Maya Mist on both with a mask, then sewed some ribbon, a flower made from lace and some buttons from my ever lasting stash. They turned out pretty good I think. I lined them with some coordinating flannel so that the inside was nice as well. They are super easy and quick to whip up. They are a small donation but I am sure some little girl or teenie may want one for all their summer savings!

I won't be posting anything while I am please don't forget about me! I will be back in a few weeks and will post some new stuff that I am working on while I am gone - you never know if it is going to rain at the lake - I may find some time to get some scrapping in!!! Hope you have a great few weeks!
