Anti Procrastination Tuesday


My big accomplishment was celebrating my 40th birthday.  I made fabric flowers, decorated tea-lite candles and packaged them up to give to all my friends.  I want to give a Birthday Party in a Bag to one of my readers.  Read below to be entered in my drawing.

This month marked my 40th birthday.  I had great plans to celebrate.  Then I got sick- really sick.  I was down for a week and a half, and I am still a little low.  I spent my actual birthday at the doctor’s office; my absolute most hated place to be.  I am so grateful for all the care my husband gave me, which speeded my healing.


My great plan for celebrating my birthday was to honor as many friends and family as I could.  I didn’t make it in time for my birthday, but I am still working on it.

I made a bunch of these fabric flowers and attached them to cardstock.  I got the idea from Little Birdie Secrets, one of my favorite blogs.

I took a stamping class to learn how to make these cool tea lites and boxes.  I made one for each of my honored “birthday” guests.  I bundled the tea lites and flower cards with some chocolates in a decorated bag.  This became my “birthday party in a bag.”  I just want all my friends and family to know how much they mean to me.

Because blogging has been so much fun and an important part of my daily life, I want to share a birthday in a bag with one of my readers.  Leave a comment and I will add your name to my drawing.  Share a quick link to my blog on your blog for my give-away and I will add another entry.  The code for my button is about half way down, just past the categories links.
