About a month ago a blogger friend of mine SeeVanessaCraft posted that she was going to host a busy bag swap and wanted to know if anyone was interested... well I jumped at the chance!! I also invited a couple of my girls, Rachel and Jamie!
After the sign up was closed we had over 30 kids!! I opted to get two sets since I know my boys will both want to play at the same time... but that also meant I had to make over 60 bags.... AHHHH!!
I decided on my bags and picked up supplies fairly quickly...even did a bunch of the leg work for one of them.. but then I stalled! A couple of nights before the party I started on them again and lets just say they were time consuming. My friend Jamie wanted to come over and play with my new silhouette cutting toy for her bag the night before the party. We totally under estimated how long our bags would take.. and lets just say I faired better than her in the sleeping department getting 3 hours of sleep.
It was a good thing I was high on my win and the great morning at the park.. because on the way back.. Jamie and I both somehow got turned around and ended up taking a really long way home :( like an hour instead of 20 minutes. and in the home stretch of the drive lil D ended up throwing up all over himself...oh motherhood can be very trying!
Vanessa did a great job of rounding up all of the bags with instructions: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3
She also put together a great list of all the sponsors check it out HERE
The boys have been enjoying their busy bags.. I've been trying to slowly pull them out,.. its like getting a new toy!
