They are packaged in a cellophane bag with shred and tied together with seam binding ribbon. I added a Kraft colored topper with a stamped tag at the top to close the bag.
This sachet has lavender inside it. Smells really great! Place in a drawer or closet. Makes a great gift for someone special.

I attended the Paper Cowgirl Retreat in Waxahachie this past Thursday thru Saturday. It was so much fun! We started off with a meet and greet on Thursday at The Dove's Nest http://thedovesnestrestaurant.com/ . This is a wonderful store full of great finds from jewelry to clothing and home decor. We had good food and Lisa Pace http://www.lisapace.com/ was the guest speaker as well as being a teacher at the retreat. Her speech was funny and very informative. I enjoyed it a lot. All the students got to mingle with the teachers (me being a teacher) and each other. It was a whimsical evening and everyone was really nice and friendly.

Paper Cowgirl was wonderful. Everyone was so friendly and that made it easy to make new friends. I look forward to the Wicked Tea in the Fall. I went to last years as a student and plan on doing the same this year. Watch the Paper Cowgirl blog for more info about it. Only like 30 something people will be allowed to sign up for it. So you have to watch closely for when the sign up starts.

All the graduates threw up their hats! It was really cool to watch. Blair said he didn't get hat when he left. What a bummer!!
With me outside the areana afterwards. Holding that diploma!! Not a great picture and then we didn't get one with his Dad. He had gone to get the car. It was so hot outside! Blair was sweating so bad in that gown. He said it felt like he was in a sauna!
It's over now and Blair is glad to be out of high school. Had a small party with family on Sunday. He wants to work and play through the Summer then start Richland College in the Fall. He is not sure what he wants to do yet career wise but is nterested in radiology and finance. He has plenty of time to decide.
