A Happy Birthday Banner

If you're your wondering what
we Crafty Sisters
have been up to,
or maybe
why we haven't been so
quick and current with posts.....
Candace has 4 very very very busy boys
she's been trying to wrangle and entertain this summer
and I have been busy busy working.
Phewwwww!
That about sounds it up!:)
I am actually surprised at how many comments we have received
about what I do, I guess I just figure y'all know.
I like to dabble with wood. 
I specialize in cutting out custom wood letters and other crafts.
I teach classes and sell my products at a local scrap booking store
and I'm trying to get better about making a go of my Etsy store.
I feel so blessed to be able to work with something I love
but even more that I get to do it from home
and be with my little girl.
You can see some of my projects here.
My sweet little girl has been so patient and so helpful to me!
I had to share one of my favorite projects I did lately.
I was asked to make up one of my birthday banners
to match the WISH letters I sell in my Etsy store.

I was so happy with how it turned out!
So bright and fun and my little girl helped me
pick out all the buttons, ribbons and directed
all the glitter glue that went on!
When Candace and I started making
birthday banners a few years ago
we made some for her craft group ladies.
Angela at Secrets of A Supper Mommy featured them here.
It just reminded me that although I would love to sew
I completely lack the patience for it.
Plus I dislike how fabric gets wrinkled when it's stored.
So endless are the possibilities with wood and paper
and this banner folds up like an accordion for easy storage.

And hey, you know me....is there such a thing as too much glitter?
I can hardly believe the summer is coming to an end
and I've got to get my head in gear for boutique season!!!:)
Candace and I are working on some more projects for her son's
room this week that we think will be really fun!
Stay tuned!
