To Alex -

To Alex...who is far away in person, but never far from my heart. I miss you. Enjoy these snippets of everyday family life here in the states.

Well, that was easy.

Do you follow the Dave Ramsey Envelope System for budgeting and saving money? I do and so do some of my family members. The idea for the fabric envelopes is not original, I found it online, but really, if you're going to save, shouldn't you be saving in an envelope that is stylish and fun to use? That's what I thought. So, here you go J, K, and P. These are for you, made with me, of course. Once the fabric is cut I can put two of these together in an hour, but do you think I remembered to make a few for myself??? Hmph!
Next in queue...what could I possibly be making with this little pile? It's for a sewing class I'm hosting on Saturday. I'll show you the finished product next week along with, hopefully, pics of the class.
What's in your queue? Have you finished projects already this year?

Added: I don't want to seem like I'm copying everything Heather does, even though I think she's awesome, but I did want you to know that I got the idea and the tutorial for the cash budget pouches from here.
