Baked With Love

All this mochi talk is making me hungry!  Before I get into my next project, I wanted to remind you all to visit our Design Team's blogs to see what they are up to and give them some love!

And don't forget to check out Linda's You Tube Channel for a giveaway!

OK back to the mochi... I recently got my hands on some glassine bags.  Yes, I'm behind the times when it comes to these, but after you see all the cool projects crafters make with them, you'll want some for yourself too.  Debi was the one who actually introduced them to me and has come up with several cute projects using them.  So I took the plunge and picked up some myself to see what I could do with it. 

I think I should have put something into the bag!  LOL!  Oh well, hope you get the idea... I ended up using a sentiment by Island Scrapbooking "Baked with Love".  I can't wait to use this for some Christmas tags this year!  I paper pieced Mieko's kimono again using some washi paper.  This is my lazy way of doing the kimono.

So here's a funny story about glassine bags.  My friend, who shall remain nameless, gave me some glassine bags.  Linda started cracking up and asked my friend where she got them from.  I sat there puzzled because obviously I wasn't in on the joke.  Finally, I found out why Linda was laughing so much.  Apparently my friend had picked up her glassine bags from 7-11!  LOL!    She asked the clerk if she could take some from where you get the donuts.  They told her "no worry Aunty, you can take!".  I swear, us crafters can get very creative and determined when it comes to getting our supplies!

Well, hope you had a good laugh!  I sure did just remembering that story!  Be sure to check us out again tomorrow!
