Saturday Fun: Crafting and Shopping

Today we went over to see Brad's mom, Grandma Norma and guess what she had planned for ER to do, an early Easter craft! Guess this weekend will have to go down as a craft filled one since ER got to get her craft on with all three grandparents. They enjoyed decorating foam egg shapes with self-stick Easter themed foam stickers, we're going to use them as place cards for our Easter Sunday family meal. What fun, to include ER in the decorations Grandma. This is a simple and fun craft for even the youngest, it's so nice that all the innovations in crafting material make things fun without the mess.

Meanwhile, Brad and I escaped for a few hours to go shopping for my birthday present! What fun and it's all Noelle's fault, as she did a post on the new fabrics at Vera Bradley. Ever since seeing them, they've been on my mind. I just had to have something in the fun purple punch print, I got it in the mailbag style which doesn't look that big online but is quite roomy. I love how it has multiple zippered pockets, one of which as slots for your credit cards so I can use that hidden pocket as my wallet and eliminate one thing I have to carry, and how the strap can be adjusted so I can wear it across my body. Can't wait to get it on the 13th!
