There's a lady at church who hosts a card party 4 times a year. I went for the first time a few months ago and had a blast. I'm not a card maker, I leave that to Hallmark.
I love making presents and I love shopping for presents, especially if I can get a great sale! But the cards always evade me. I hate spending $3.99 on a card when I could put that money towards more present. And I don't like the $.99 cards because they feel so blah for the excitement of a present.
So the happy medium is making cute cards. Well after my first go around at it I was much more efficient and excited about this party. I carpooled with a friend and we knew we were on a time crunch as our hubbies were at her house with all the kids. So after dinner of yummy homemade pizza, we got to work on cards and I was able to get 10 done!

I seriously have 5 baby showers in the span of 2 weeks! Sheesh! Well on my budget and averaging about $30 a shower gift, that would make it $150!!!! So time to craft.
I've been sewing and crafting like crazy. To be honest I'm getting tired out, but then I think about how much I'm saving, and how cute some of these things are turning out to be. I wish I could just go and buy a jumper, bouncer, etc. for each mom, but that's just not happening right now, so here's what I've ended up with.
- Snacks and snack bag to match the onesie
- Personalized onesie with baby's initial (or a decoration if I don't know the baby's name)
- Sippy cup and a sippy cup strap
- Boo-Boo bag which is doubling as a pacifier case with a pacifier and pacifier leash
- Diaper and wipes clutch with a wipes case inside
- Nursing cover
- Laundry basket
- Baby headband (for the girls only)
Here's a pic of each item separately
Here's the photo of the flower head band I made with the pattern I blogged about the other night. Pretty cute huh?

Call me crazy but there's something about the thrill of buying cart full of food and pay $60 or less at Publix that I love!
Well with all that being said, I blogged about my new coupon organization system on my personal blog, but I never wrote about it here. After getting comments about it there, I thought I would do the same here.
I was so overwhelmed with all the little coupons I had printed out so I bought a 13 pocket folder at Target used my lovely label maker to tab each section. I organized it in the same order as I walk through the store so it's easy to find my last minute coupons in the store.
Do you coupon? How do you organize all the random little coupons you get?
