Just a quick post!
I wanted to do a quick post tonight to share the special gift my sister made for me last year. After sharing items on the M.E. blog I had to share this. She took a box, painted it black, glued pages from the ME page-a-day calendar, and then covered the whole thing with Mod-Podge. It is the most awesome box. She chose sayings that she knew I would like or those that she thought really fit me. She was saving and planning for awhile and even tore the September 15 page off a little early so she could finish it before my birthday. Since I am a birthday "nut" the Shout it from the Rooftops sentiment really fits. I love birthdays.
Notice that she also included a few that had quilts and sewing in it. I am still in awe of the work she did on this gift.

I think she would agree that we can thank our mom for that. Birthdays were a big thing in our house and we always had 2 parties - one for the kids and one for the relatives. I never gave up on all those celebrations and I'm lucky to have friends who help me celebrate each year.
If you haven't already, be sure to go to the Birthday Giveaway post. I love giving out prizes. Now I'm off to cut out a block and maybe even sew a bit tonight!
