  8. Love that you gave the crayon art a try-it turned out great. I have a feeling that if I were there we would have made this a girls night project! :) Remember when we used to google ideas for crafts to make? Now we have Pinterest!!

    I'd be concerned about shipping it---with melting/smearing/chipping. Any tips on how you packaged it?

  9. OMG!!!!!
    I came on to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and as I was scrolling down to see your latest and greatest!!! My eyes go big on the crayon canvas and I was thinking to myself "I've got to do this!!!" Then I read it was coming my way!!!! I love you girl and I will treasure it always! How did I get so lucky to get a friend like you!!!

Don't say I've missed your birthday?! log onto TCR each morning to check them out, how did this happen?! Hope you had a beautiful day with your man and got spoiled through and through. Brekkie in bed? fed with strawberries and kisses? a bouquet waiting on the dining room table? a de luxe dinner? I'm sure it was a day to remember! a belated Happy Birthday!! xoxoxo
