Birthdays are the best.
Mostly, I just love a good excuse to celebrate!
The cake and other fattening goodies.
The gift giving.
And just a brief moment in the busy-ness of day to day life
where I get to to commemorate the life of someone so special
and tell them just how much they are appreciated, loved, and cherished.
Yeah, birthday's are the best.
Especially lately, as I am
1) Living the "poor college student" dream
2) Trying to pay for my study abroad to Jerusalem
I have been working the homemade gift thing.
Here is a taste of one of my latest gifting endeavors.
And this WHOLE adorable little package cost less than 10 bucks, mind you.
cupcake gift boxes...
(find the tutorial for this gorgeous idea at sewcraftcreate.com)
each hiding a little treasure inside.
Anthro inspired bead and knot bracelet.
Fabric button earrings.
And an IOU for one downtown girl date to Gigi's cupcake shop.
Birthday Bliss, if you ask me.
Happy Birthday Miss Madi (sorry I'm a smidgen late..)! Oh Happy Life!
