Projects, Santa Cruz

Welcome to the Cruz

We had some visitors last weekend and I wanted to do something extra special for them, seeing that it was their first time to Santa Cruz. I got a little crafty and put together welcome bags for each of my girlfriends. Heather, who is amazing at Calligraphy, helped me with the cards. I saw similar bags on Etsy but decided I could do them for cheaper. So I did.

I opted for some beachy gifts: sunblock, Santa Cruz memorabilia, a cold drink and a glass fish bottle topper to theme up with our Napa trip. I accomplished all of this for less than $50. That’s a win in my book!

We also had a birthday to celebrate so I picked out something local and “manly” for him as well .. and added a label.
