Birthday Party-to-Go Craft Projects
I'm taking two February-birthday friends to lunch this afternoon.
1. Presents made and wrapped – check;
2. Notes written in special cards purchased last August on our trip to Texas (You know how sometimes you see just the perfect card for someone?) – check; and
3. Centerpiece (I'm using the wire birch tree which I used to photograph the Valentine heart collages in Valentine's Review: What Did you Create to Express Your Love?).
After the "photo shoot", I looked at the be-hearted tree and thought, "Hey, that would make a pretty centerpiece!" I thought it would look even prettier with one more heart for balance; but didn't think I had time to make another by today.
Somehow the time just materialized. I lost myself at my craft table this morning and before I knew it, not only were two more cards for our Card Care Connection Card Party completed but the missing Blessing Heart as well.
The ones for Trish and Judy say, "Blessed by You" And the Blessing Heart I'm keeping for myself says, "My Blessing" (I ran out of room for the "s" - lol).
When I did the journaling on the background paper, I wrote many of the things I'm thankful for. Maybe I should make a larger Blessing Heart so I can fit more on it.
