a little bit of random for good life wednesday

This post is a random assortment of the things that make me happy......

First and most important, the little man. His favorite summer past time is playing in the hose. He would stay out there all day if I let him. I love watching him explore. He is the happiest when he is outside, roaming free and making lots of messes!

Second, is this little fabric envelope I made. The tutorial came from one of my favorites, Emily of Jones Design Co.

My sister's birthday is this month. My parents gave her a Kindle, so I decided to give her an Amazon gift card so she could buy herself some books. Gift cards aren't all that exciting to give, but the little fabric envelope makes it more fun!

I have no idea why I didn't take any pictures during the process of making my envelope. It never occurred to me that I would put it on the blog. It was a fun, easy project that I highly recommend.
Oh and P.S. I changed mine up a bit and used a different flower than Emily did for her envelope. I used her gathered flower tutorial for my flower and I love the way it turned out. I like it so much that I think I am going to make another one of these flowers to put on a headband.

And last but not least, I love getting mail! I look forward to checking the mailbox everyday. And packages?? Oh packages are even more exciting! So today when this showed up at my door it felt like Christmas!
In case you're curious, among the packages were 1 - the amazon gift card for  my sister.  2 - a few rabit skins toddler shirts I ordered for the little man. 3 - another amazon package of items for our trip this week (mainly DVDs to keep a certain someone happy on the 9 hour car trip). 4 - the best of all....my fabric I ordered from Calico Corners to make pillows for my recently slipcovered couch!

I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday! Sarah is having problems with her server so I'm not sure if she will be hosting her "good life wednesday" party or not, but I'm participating anyway. :)

We leave for Florida on Thursday so I may or may not be around the rest of the week. I hope everyone has a great 4th of July!!


I would LOVE to hear from you! Comments, suggestions or just a simple hello are welcome! :)
