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.
