Project Life: Week 16

Week 16 = my birthday week! I spent the whole week celebrating in some way or another. ProjectLifeWeek15LeftTuesday, Nikki and I went to see Neon Trees (and were blown away by their opening act, Twenty One Pilots – they had an electric ukulele!)

ProjectLifeWeek16Right I opted to include a Design H insert to hold photos related to my actual birthday. I used a title card from the Jade kit, a photo of my gift bag, chevron washi found at Hobby Lobby, and a flag note & letter stickers found at Target dollar spot to set off the insert.

A few other highlights from the week:

  • I found the first gift I’m taking to Ecuador this fall: a beautiful HeartsforHearts Girls doll for my sweet Emily
  • We’re still getting a few colder nights – which means we’re still having to cover the garden. But, despite the cold, the tomatoes are growing and I’m super excited to harvest them in a few weeks.
  • Nikki painted me the cutest elephant on a balloon for my birthday. I love it! Thanks, Nikki!!
  • Jessica got me a new scent for a new year and it’s fantastic – coconutty and summery and wonderful.
  • And Dot, out of left field, found me the absolute best elephant earrings & gave them to me on my birthday – which was an accomplishment by itself – but I love them and loved spending the day with her.

    Looks like you had a great birthday week! Can’t wait to see the 26 quilts you are going to make, are you making them for anything in particular? I am trying to think of things I can make or do to earn money for a Compassion trip, possibly to Mexico in January 🙂

      I had a great birthday week 🙂 Right now I’m planning on giving most of the quilts away as gifts. I’ve got a list of people I’ll be giving them to, but it’s not full yet. I know that I’ll be keeping a couple of them, but the five or so that are currently “unclaimed” I’m not sure what I’ll do with – I saw where you were selling jam/jelly for your trip. I think that’s a great idea! I’m super excited for you to go to Mexico 😀
