And I Don't Even Like Purses!!!

I have fifteen gazillion nieces.

Or perhaps it's just 6.

Anyway, I love them all dearly and don't get to see but one of them on a regular basis, being that most of them live in Virginia and I live here in Texas.
So I decided to try and make most of them a little something to remind them why they love me the most. Isn't that what Aunts are supposed to do? (by the way, I wanted to make them all the same thing, but my fingers said nope.)
I got all the bags at Hobby Lobby (of course) for super cheap.
I then went to work, cutting out letters and the flowers.
I got the flower tutorial from this great blog.
They were lots of fun to make. I wish I had more time to make them a little more fancy, but that's life.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year! We went to a family party on Friday night, then headed straight to the deer lease to try one more weekend of hunting since buck season ended Sunday. I saw nothing, but my husband had the great luck to see his first buck of the season yesterday... One day after buck season ended. How's that for luck? Oh well, we had a great time being together and letting the boys shoot the gun.

I'm ready for a new year, although it's always a little sad to see the old one go and know that you can never get back those moments. I can't wait to welcome a new one into our home this year and to get busy on all of the many projects I have lined up!

Cute purses!
and what a good Aunt you are to remind those girls just how cool you really are...In my opinion, Kiddos need reminding of those things nowadays!

Super cute! The girls will love the bags! M and G are all into purses and putting "stuff" into them. You did a great job! Wish I could find fun projects like this for nephews, I have 6 of those!

What a wonderful Auntie you are! I have 5 nieces and I love them to pieces! I try to give them something they'll have for a lifetime for all their special moments! You are the best Auntie (like me!)!!! Have a wonderful day!
