I've had this project sitting on my desk all week ready to share with you and have just not gotten around to it. I have had the headache from $%&# all week long that just doesn't want to go away. I even went and chopped off my hair yesterday. I had five inches cut off. While my headache didn't go away because of it, the pain I was having in my neck was amazingly better. I couldn't believe just how heavy my hair was. I know there are many women who would love to have my thick, fast growing hair, but wow it can quite literally be such a pain at times! LOL In spite of the pain I've been in this week, I am in amazingly good spirits. It's been a really good week - headache notwithstanding - and I find myself being incredibly grateful for the many blessings in my life.
I made this set for a good friend for her birthday tomorrow. She is always ordering stuff from me, so I thought I'd surprise her with a set of cards she doesn't have to pay me for. :) She loves handmade items but doesn't want to do it herself. I got the directions for the bow from Naomi, and she is right, I can totally see how they'd be addicting to make. I probably should've used a smaller bow for the box, but it was so fun to make and see how it turned out. I'll just have to make sure and do a smaller one on the next Ipod box I decorate. ;) Oh, this project was also supply friendly....I used 1 sheet of dsp + a couple of scraps, and 3 sheets of cs (1 of each color). That was for the bow, box, and the cards (1 dozen). I love it when I can do a project with so little. :)
