I have this friend, she is very crafty and talented, she is the kind of person who moves and has her house all set up the next day (and ready to host thanksgiving the next weekend), she is very project orientated and even has a blog to keep track of her progress, to top it all off she is super thrifty and does it all on a budget, she is an inspiration to me. I love projects too but it has taken me 3 months to get the motivation to clean up my basement so I can have space to begin, I have tons of projects and finally got going last night, Kate's birthday is St. Patricks Day so I am feeling like I should get things looking festive especially when I saw this banner and bouquet of shamrocks on a blog. Anyway, here are my finished products, I did spend about $15 on everything, I had plain green paper but I wanted something with some more pizazz so I bought some paper, I also had to buy string and buttons and glue but I'm happy with the way it all turned out.
My bouquet of Shamrocks on my entry table.
Banner of shamrocks across the fireplace, I opted for each shamrock being different rather than all just plain green, most paper I bought was double sided so I actually only bought 6 sheets of paper.
Kate got her square on the virtual EB quilt. Each Square represents an EB child, adult, or an angel in heaven. Feel free to check it out by clicking here if you click on the name of a person it will sometimes just give you an e-mail address but some of them link to sites created for that individual with their whole story, if you read some of them have a box of tissues at the ready.
Epidermolysis Bullosa Info Links (Kate's skin condition)
Our very own little sporty spice, Kate is a tom boy for now and loves to play baseball, tennis, minature golf and is a fish in the pool. She loves to ride her bike and scooter. She loves puzzles, crafts and coloring. She does not like candy! She suffers from a rare and genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa, for more info go to http://www.debra.org/ or http://www.ebinfoworld.com/ we are lucky hers is mild and she amazes us with how little it bothers her.
Still sweet and almost 3, Sara is very girly, she would wear a dress everyday. She loves her dolls and books, she loves Kate and loves to play with her stuff! Sara also loves candy.
This is Red 5 aka my wonderful hubby. He fancies himself as a bit of a handy andy (he's actually pretty good), as I create this blog he is in our bedroom hanging the TV on the wall using all kinds of wall anchors and a whole lot of spackle.
British (with suprisingly decent teeth!!), wife of an amazingly cute and witty yank who has given me the two most beautiful girls in the world. I love my family, early morning walks - its great to be out and about when it seems the rest of the world is still asleep - brown sauce, watching Wimbledon on TV, being organized (rarely happens these days though) and going to the park with my girls.
