Late to the party! Show and Tell Monday

Well I'm a little late but I wanted to join the fun and show you some of the cute new eco friendly gift bags I am making.

I found a bunch of lace fabric samples and made them into 7 by 5 inch draw string bags. each one has a ribbon pull and a piece of coordinating tissue folded inside. I will make some matching tags as well.

I am working on a project with Marie of Savon Marie . Marie makes the most wonderful bath and body products.

We are joining forces and creating a SPECTACULAR give away so we will keep you posted on "Pink sisters supporting pink sisters."

Marie has a new promotional item she is creating and together we are going to send it off with a blast!

I would also like to give you a link for a wonderful article written by the sweet man behind Lilli Blue.

That's my honey! We have only been dating for 10 months.

He met me right when my Mom was in the final stages of her life. At a time when most men would have run for their lives, this man held me close and supported me through the worst of times. He has been a true friend and is the driving force behind my entire Lilli Blue project.

He taught me how to use the camera and gave me one to use. How to use the computer and loaned me a lap top so I could get started.

Best of all he makes me laugh and helps me keep perspective when life gets crazy tough.

Check out his blog he has a wonderful writing style I know you will enjoy him.

Love the going green project! Can't wait to see what you and Marie have cooked up, bound to be good.
Will get to you BF's blog later this evening. It's so great that you and he found each other at a time you needed an anchor. Nice when a guy isn't threatened by a woman's strength and supports her moving forward. Glad you have someone who makes you happy and helps ground you.

Hi Lilli,
Your gift bags are them a lot. I am anxious to see your new treasures that you and Marie have designed. So happy that you have a wonderful support system...Tom sounds like a wonderful man and a caring companion. I read his blog and found him to be a very deep thinker, extremely intelligent and an excellent writer! Best wishes to both of you!

Theresa said...

Wow Lilli,
What a lovely man you have there. So smart, eh? I wasn't sure if he was being insightful or inciteful, lol........He will keep your head on its toes with all that mental tap dancing. If too many people read his blog, the big advertising firms will have to step up their game.
