      Hi all,


      I just received my wedding favors and "Mexico Emergency Kit" supplies and I ordered them all through Amazon.com.  I'm a Canadian bride but had some friends in the US that I could ship them to.  I got EmergenC, Advil, Pepto, Shout Wipes, sunscreen, breathmints and I think one more thing but it was very helpful to do some one-stop shopping!  Might be worth it to check it out?

          I'm still thinking about whether or not to do OOT bags but this list is making me really tempted. Great ideas! Quick question: how was it traveling and going through customs with all of that?

              What an awesome price! I am making beach bags put of canvas and they are costing about $5 each, and I have to do all the work!

                 I was thinking of making my own bags as well!  I'm not sure if I have the time though and how they will turn out lol


                MRSPWILSON: I read somewhere that those bags seemed to leak colour when wet stuff (beach towels etc) were put in them and also when washed.. did you have this problem? It's such a great find and wouldn't be a huge deal if they weren't used for long because the cost but I would hate for the colouring to ruin someone's things.. any advice would be great!

I can't believe it!

                  This sounds amazing.
