Happy Birthday to me and a look in my craftroom


Happy Birthday to me today.   I chose my presents from Graham, a pair of burgundy ankle boots, a Gorjuss Girl calendar and diary and the new hardback Elly Griffiths' novel.  We started the celebrations on Sunday when as you may have seen we went out for a meal and to the theatre. Today we will be going to line dancing class at lunchtime as usual as I don't want to miss it and tonight we will be enjoying a M&S meal at home with a bottle of wine. We have something planned for later in the week which I will tell you about on Sunday.

So I thought I would share one of my noticeboards in my craft room with you today just for a change. The fabric heart was given to me by a friend to remember her Mum who was one of our best friends. She died a few years ago from cancer and the heart is made from one of her favourite dresses. The butterfly brooch I added because we shared a love of butterflies and I bought it from a cancer charity. 

I have a lot of my favourite things on this board, photo of hubby in Florida, Pooh bear, Gorjuss Girls, used book tokens including a special edition Harry Potter one, tags friends have made, two cards from Faye which inspire me to improve my colouring and a butterfly tag I made at a workshop at a craft show. I don't know if you can read the kraft tag but it was attached to weekly organiser from a friend and it reads "For the most organised person I have ever known."

Hi Marianne

Belated happy birthday wishes .. .. you certainly sound like you are cramming a lot of great things into celebrating .. .. exactly as you should!

Love your notice board, very clean and neat and holding lots of lovely memories. Mine is smothered in addresses, lists and things I don't want to go astray. Very messy but a constant lifesaver! LOL!!

Enjoy the rest of your birthday week.

Love Jules xx
