Teresa's Blogaversary Blog Hop


Hello to all our crafty friends! We have a great blog hop for you today. A little over a year ago Teresa began this new blog to celebrate the fact she wanted a change in her life. And for that change to be permanent came lots of prayer and leaning on God to give the right answers. The answers He needed to give not the answers Teresa desired. Well here we are 1 year later and Teresa is a Stay at Home Wife loving life and doing all she needs to do to create a warm, loving atmosphere for her family!

So thanks for joining us today...Teresa asked all the participants to create something that represented a change in their life...So hop on along.


If you've hopped along from Angela then you are in the right place.  If you are just joining us, please be sure to click here to start at the beginning so you do not miss any of the fun. There will be some awesome blog candy for one hopper that follows and comments on each blog along the way.  Teresa will be choose with Random. org the winner on Monday 1/14.


The big change that I experienced this year was welcoming my 3rd child, a baby girl in September. Going from a family of 4 to 5 was a huge change, especially that my other two are under the age of 5.  So needless to say, there are days that it feels like I run a zoo.  My project that I made focused on the baby theme.  I wanted to make a little gift box for a shower gift using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 along with Everyday Pop Up Cards.  I used Lacey Labels for the mat. 
 What a wonderful gift idea.  I love it better than those gift bags because it's more personable and you could even make a matching card for it.

 It fit a onesie, 6 facecloths, a bottle and a bottle of Zincoxide.
The bird matches the bird in the background paper.  I wanted to stray slightly away from the "normal" baby themed gift wrapping.

Next on the hop is Sandy.  Should you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up

  14. Fabulous gift presentation. Just adorable papers and colors. As the mother of five, I can tell you after you have three nothing phases you anymore, you don't even notice the challenge of baby four or five. Just saying, in case you want to have more. LOL Thanks for sharing with us at CTVS.
