Happy April!!

Hope everyone has been enjoying their spring so far! The flowers outside my window are blooming and everything is green and gorgeous! (As it should be since it has rained almost every day for the past year here!) Anyway...

Yesterday I got the nicest surprise and it has inspired this months challenge. My mom who is the most thoughtful, selfless, sweetest person I have ever known came by my office and dropped this off:

(Please excuse the picture it was taken with my cell phone.)

It is the Heather Bailey lunch bag that I have been wanting her to make me and I am in LOVE with it. I am always grabbing my lunch at the last minute heading for work and dropping stuff everywhere, but no longer will I have that problem will I? Isn't it adorable? She is always doing nice things for me and my sisters. It is the little things that always make me smile and appreciate everything she does. Which brings me to this months challenge.

I challenge you to make a card, gift, or mini scrapbook for someone who is always going out of their way for someone else. It could be something small just to put a smile on their face. We definitly need more people in the world like them. Don't you think?

I will be posting my surprise for my mom later this week on my blog! I can't wait to see all of yours. You are all so talented and amaze me everytime I stop by your blogs to drool over your creations!


  1. This is such a wonderful idea. So glad that you appreciate all the your mom does also, I think that's great.

  2. Oh, I love this idea. I've been meaning to always make mini baby scrapbooks as baby gifts, but NEVER find the time. This may be my motivation! Thanks for the great challenge!

  3. Great challenge Angela! Gee now what to do!!

  4. Oh what fun! I'll have to get my creative wheels turning..great idea and great time of year (Spring and Easter) to do this..Thanks Angela!

  5. I love this challenge, almost as much as I love your lunch bag.
    Thanks Angela!
