My oldest daughter was away from home again this year for her birthday. I made her the pendants which say happy "bri" day. No, that's not a spelling mistake...just her name and I thought it was close enough to birthday to use the play on names. Then I made a matching card with her favorite word, 'frolic" and added some cupcakes. Rather than wrapping the entire box, I just embossed a band to put around it . Then I added her presents and candles. I don't usually wrap in shopping bags but I loved the graphics on this bag. It wasn't as good as having her at home but at least I could do something to make it a special day.

I made this simple wire basket by folding it and then tying the sides with twine. Sorry the picture isn't better...all those little criss crosses with wire make it hard to photograph. I folded over the top and ran a little twine through it too. It's the perfect size for mail or paperwork.

My "wombmate" (twin sister) and I were wandering around Michael's last weekend and found a cool frame with flowers on it. Knowing that she had a couple of weddings to go to this summer, I suggested we put one together that was a bit more personalized. After making 45 circles around the frame department, we came up with this. The heart shaped frame has a floating picture so we just added the scrapbooking paper...looks like velum but feels more like a place mat to get the scrolly (yep, making up my own words now)
