Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Inspiration! Birthday present...

My awesome Great-Aunt Sheila turned 70 this last week.  We surprised her with a party on Friday night.  It was awesome!  She was totally surprised by both the party and her brother and sister-in-law.  It was one of the first parties I've gone to with the boys and I didn't have to worry about them the whole time!  I checked on them periodically, of course, but they played happily upstairs with the other kids and there were enough big kids(several over 12) keeping an eye on the little ones that I didn't have to worry at all.  I loved it.  I'll miss it when our next little peeber comes along in July and I have one that I have to keep a constant eye on again. At least they are cute so they are fun to watch. :)  Anyway I wanted to make something special for my Great- Aunt because she truly is great.  They are our closest family here and they have adopted us and made us feel totally welcome.  I've been loving the look of all the ruffles and flowers and vintagey stuff I've been seeing on the internet in clothing and decor and accessories.  So I decided to see if I could imitate something.  I got my inspiration from this wonderful Etsy seller, You are my Sunshine.  Here's an example of my inspiration- That 70's necklace.  I love everything about that necklace, brightness and all.  For my Aunt I went with her favorite color- pink.  I actually don't have a photo of the one that I made for her but I made another for a Mom in my mom's group who is having a birthday party in two weeks.  I made hers in purple since that's her fave color.  It was fun to experiment with jewelry making and I feel like I was pretty successful.
 

I learned how to make the flowers on Little Birdie Secrets.  I think I need to make one for myself now. :)

You are so crafty I love it!! I'm simply not that talented. We have the select passes for Disneyland too but sadly our passes are up on the 23rd of February. I don't think we will be renewing them. If there is a time you want to meet there let me know and I will try to make it happen.
