I received today from our lovely organizer, Kaz. Check out all the wonderful things she sent!!

There's a jar of diy laundry soap (which I cannot wait to try!), a super pretty, glittery christmas ornament, a pair of mesh produce bags, a set of christmas napkins and a bunch of reusable gift bags!!



The produce bags and napkins. My hubster is going to be so excited about the produce bags! The napkins are double sided made with very cute holiday fabrics.



Check out that stack of gift bags! It's kind of hard to see in the photo (sorry for the bad pics, btw, it's really dark and gloomy today) but there are 5 of them and they're all different shapes and sizes.



Thank you so much for everything, Kaz! I love everything and now I'm so excited for Christmas to get here!

Ooh, all lovely! I'm curious about the laundry soap - I make my own, but it's a liquid. The powder looks nice and packages so pretty.

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Very nice start to the gallery. Kaz, how is it sewing mesh? There is some on the red tag shelf at my Joanns but I'm worried about seams. Did you do French seams?

I don't think it's too bad.  I just sew as normal and so far my bags have held up fine!  The mesh I chose has a bit more "mesh" to hold onto, rather than the kind that's mostly holes, if that makes any sense?  I did soak it in some water and dish soap, though, to rid it of the plastic-y feeling, though.


And I'm so glad you liked everything, cinnamon teal!  Cheesy  WOO!

Good info. I'm gonna buy a bit of mesh and try it! I'm headed to no internet land until Monday, but I did bring a project to work on for my partner. I'll check in with you all on Monday!

I got an awesome package from bergman!

Here's everything:



There's an apron, dish cloths, hobo gloves, Christmas balls, recipe cards, and pantry inventory sheets!

The Christmas balls:



These have buttons, sequins, lace, and pins in them!

The dish cloths and gloves:



I love the little owl buttons used to keep the glove flaps in place!

And the apron:



Hopefully you can see, it's a 2-in-1 apron - so you can take the top part off and just have the waist apron, or you can have the full thing!

Thanks so much, bergman, it's great!
