sarah clayton goes to school.

my niece started kindergarden a few weeks back, 
and to get her ready for school i decided to make her 
a little off to school package.

the box included various supplies,
a packet of kleenex, starbust chapstick, 
and a bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies
for good luck!

i loved putting this together, 
and think it is a great gift for any child going to school!


my new favorite things:
my home-grown herbs jar from terrain.
 and making mint water with my fresh mint.
you should try it too.
it is ultra refreshing!

will you be my BRIDESMAID?

i decided to creatively ask my girl friends to be in my wedding.
since i was planning a wedding relatively fast, i had to think quick 
on how i was going to do this without being point blank about it.

here is what i came up with...
a library card sent through the old typewriter with the date of the wedding stamped in the date due blank.
since we were getting married at the beach i bought aloe, a bar of soap...
a candle and matches with beach street names on the case
threw in some shells
box up the goodies
the whole presentation.
they were a big hit, and i loved how they turned out.

Work snacks.

I decided I would be a good wife and put together some healthy snacks for my sweet husband. I couldn't be easy and just throw it in a ziploc, however.

So here is my morning creation.. A newsprint bag found from Olive Manna with almonds and organic goodness inside tied with baker's twine and a banana on top.

Who says you can't be crafty at the wee hours of the morning?
