It's My Birthday!

Hello!  Hope your having the greatest day!  Today is MY BIRTHDAY!  I've been enjoying the day today first took Ariel to school and went to stay and play at my church.  Also learned how to do coffee for stay and play as I have volunteered to start doing that every second week (the other weeks I volunteer with set up)  May as well as I am there early dropping Ariel off at school!  Had a lot of fun at Stay and Play chatting with other mom's, a lot who I would call my friends!  And Carter had fun getting out of the house and playing with other kids!  Took my nephew home with me for lunch and he had a nap here while my SIL and BIL went Christmas shopping!  Carter loved playing with him and they went down easily and I joined them and had a nap of my own!  Tonight were going out for dinner as a family and it's a surprise as to where!  :>

I wanted to pop in and share a project that I made!  I had had hinted in my post here about it by showing you some of the flowers I was making for it.  I ran out of hot glue last night so I put the finishing touches on it today and put it up!!!  I so love it:

It's a wreath made out of rolled flowers from an old university text book of mine!  I knew I would get some use out of that thing!  :>  I got the idea off of pinterest.  I have been on pinteret for a while now but only the past two weeks have I really fallen hard for it!  I am proud of myself for seeing something I like and actually making it never mind actually starting to make it the next day!  I think for us cardmakers making rolled flowers is a love, and using text is another love!  It did take A LONG time to make I worked on it in the evenings making 10 flowers or so at a time but I didn't work on it everyday either.  Totally worth it!  Here's how I hung it in my front entrance:




I think I really like this spot for it!  Refreshes my beloved mirror!  I have other crafty home ideas I've seen on pinterest so I hope to make a few more things for my home and gifts!  What do you think of the spot I put it?  To me this is not a Christmas wreath at all so I will keep it up for a bit.  Who knows how long until I come up with another idea?  Could it be a keeper there?

Well it may be my birthday but I want to give something to you, simply leave me a comment on this post until Wednesday December 14th, 2011!  You must be a follower in order to win!  You could win:



Well I am off to get ready for dinner!  Hope you have a fantastic day!
