I do hope you read the last post. I want you to know that I am so very happy that each and every one of you are here. I feel very blessed to have you here with me on this journey. I appreciate your support. I value each comment you post here. Your encouragement has been amazing. I decided to blog for many reasons. Mainly to find direction after having to quit my job. You are helping me find exactly where I am going. Thank you!
I promised we were going to have a giveaway. I am not sure if a giveaway has ever been done quiet like this. But... I want to give each of you a gift to show my appreciation. The handmade prizes are shown here. Each barbwired creation is numbered. To receive your gift, just comment with the number you would like. Then email me your address. That is it! Now, if perhaps you see nothing you like, pay it forward, find a gift for someone sweet. There is a wild card; the barbwired blast choice means your prize is not pictured, but I get to choose something I have made for you, something you do not see here. It will be a surprise, some of us love surprises. Small caveat - if a number has already been taken - it is off the list. These are one of a kind.
Ready set...choose! I am so excited...eeeeep! Hugs to you all!
Now I hate to even say this... but I made a list of my current followers. No followers added after 03/21/2011 will be allowed to participate. This will end on Saturday, March 26th. BUT ya never know what I might do in the future...!
Now for yet another birthday related tutorial. I believe in really celebrating the birthday's of those special to me. I mean, it is the day God put them on this earth to bless my life! Recently one of my sweeter than sugar girlfriends had a birthday. So I made her a special cake ball bouquet!
From that point, I took some silk flowers and took them apart.
I then folded the flower over twice and clipped a small part from the center.
I did this so the hole would be large enough to go on the stick.
Then I simply added the stick to the center of the flower.
Next, I used green tape, mine was painters tape.
I placed a pointed corner under the flower and began wrapping the stick on an angle.
I wrapped almost all of the way to the end, I wanted to leave the edge of the stick
to push into the styrofoam...well that is later...
I had a pot that I stuffed with styrofoam and crossed it with the green tape.
I made sure the add a small but taller square of styrofoam to mound it up for the bouquet.
From that point I just began placing them in.
What do you think?
I sure hope it made her birthday even more special!
I hope you have fun picking out your present!
Bundles of Blessings to You!!
