Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaappy April! Did you get pranked yesterday? Hopefully not, because its usually not fun to be on the other end of the prank.
I'm just plain excited about life this week. I want to create, and build, and craft, and love, and give, and smile and just be HAPPY! I have a whole list of crafts that I am dying to get to, but am low on the crafting money right now, so until then:
Here's what I made last week:
Last Wednesday was my dad's birthday; as I have mentioned before, he is not here to celebrate with us, but we wanted to celebrate his amazing life anyway! One of my most favorite things in this world is to give gifts. I always put a lot of thought into gifts because I want to get the person something they're going to love and use for a long time. Since I couldn't actually give the birthday boy a gift, I made gifts for the whole family. Everyone got a goody bag of all my dad's favorites: his 2nd favorite chocolate because I couldn't find the first, the only non-chocolate candy he would ever eat (red Starburst, only red), and his favorite music. I put together a playlist of some of his favorite songs, mostly 70s rock with a few country hits in there. I then used a program at work called Bravo Disc Publisher to print the CD face.
I was just so excited to give this to all of them, and was beyond ecstatic when they (especially my mom) reacted the way they did! Ahhhhh so awesome!
Crafts to come:
Barbie handheld mirror
I can't wait!!!
In case you didn't get my Grey's Anatomy reference in the title of today's post:
Bright and Shiny is how I feel this week, so I leave you with this note:
When you get up in the morning, think about what you can give away today: a smile, some love, some time, advice, clothes you don't wear anymore? Just give something away! We were all given some amazing gifts when we landed here on this planet, and its our job to share those with the people we meet....so go ahead, give something great away to someone that needs their heart lifted :)
Oh and on a very important note: New Girl is on on Thursday this week, not Tuesday!!
Sweet dreams, cookies and cream :)
