Hoppy Birthday!


All of my crafty supplies are still in storage, so my projects are very limited, which has left me with a desire to create something. I'm not sure if it's because I really feel the desire, or if it's just because I know it's something I'm not able to do right now...kind of like when I'm supposed to be eating low carb and the only thing I want to (shove in my face) eat... is spaghetti. Anyway, a few days before Jonathan's birthday (Oh my goodness, I just realized I didn't post pictures about that...well, I'll save that for tomorrow...) my mother in law and I decided to make birthday cards for him. We stayed up until almost 2 in the morning having a good time creating two very special cards for him. It was really fun and satisfied the creative itch I was having.

This isn't the best picture, but this is the card I made for him...with all the hard work I put into it, I know he really appreciated it, even though he didn't seem like he did, when he rapidly ripped the envelope, looked at the card for .7 seconds, threw it on the table, and reached for his next present...deep down, I know he loved it....

We were sitting in seats for new recruits. ( because Josh is a coach, they get free tickets to bring students to, yeah they were free too)anyway he called them up and said he wanted to bring his wife and he got put on a waiting list and had to wait till Thursday to see if any real recruits wanted the tickets.They didn't fill them and we got them.....pretty cool huh.
