Mama Bird from SurelyYouNest put out a call for the Make it from Scratch Carnival and I caved and submitted the 40th Birthday Gift my boys and I made for my husband. I am NOT a crafter by any stretch of the imagination and never, ever sew. My sewing machine consists of a ziploc baggie of safety pins and a mini glue gun...
However, I put this little envelope together using leftover Halloween costume felt and some scrapbook paper. My boys and I all created 40 different handwritten wishes for the Eco Burban Dad, which consisted of silly statements like "I wish you a home run in wiffle ball" and some insightful statements such as "I wish you no stress". It was wonderful to watch my pre-teenage boys take the time to think about their Dad and giggle a little bit... So, yes, I think it was the best.40th.birthday.present.ever. However, my little project is just a drop in the bucket - head on over to Mama Bird's Carnival for a look at all the cool submissions!
Sorry Green Bean - this soooo means that I am procrastinating on writing my review of AVM - I forgot my book at home today. Oh, and the dog at my homework too!
