Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

Gettin' My Craft On...

Thanks to Beth of Let's Get Crafty, I got some instruction in box/favor/bag creations as well as decoration. As I have mentioned, I'm planning for this small business project of mine where-in I will be creating, making and selling all sorts of sweets from candies to chocolates to cake truffles, cookies, cupcakes, cakes and more as well as the occasional small gifts and gift sets. I wondered how hard it would be to make my own decorative packaging or even take pre-made packaging and design or decorate it. Thanks to her advice and guidance, I made my first small package and now know that it's really not hard, its fun and there are literally millions of options for color, texture and pattern combinations. I created a small favor bag that could hold two homemade mallows or two to three truffles. They'd make good quick-grabs for me to sell around my area or to sell in bulk as favors or other things like that.
I know this project won't be easy, but I think in life the things worth doing may not always be the easiest things. Its worth it to try, right?
Below are a few snapshots with my phone of the package I made:

Oh. Good news: I got a call from my husband earlier. Well, actually my voicemail did. Because of course the ONE time since he's been gone that I walked away from my phone to get a drink is when he called and I didn't hear it. Atleast I got to hear the voicemail. Just hearing his voice made the day better.
I go home Sunday. That means tomorrow is my last day here. Better make it count! Goodnight, readers, whoever you are.
