Today is my Birthday and usually it means a little party with my friends but unfortunately because Mother's Day is tomorrow all my friends are busy with their families. Yes I am feeling a little sooky, which is weird for someone as old as myself. But none the less I am feeling a little blue, I miss my kids, they live in Ontario. And while I will see my daughter in a couple of months, I wish we were closer so I could be there for her during her pregnancy and feel the belly. You know what I mean right?
I thank god for technology, Skype has saved me so many times when I just needed to see their faces. My mom also lives in Ontario with my youngest sister and I have another sister in Halifax. So it's long distance all the way. Even Colleen lives about 45 minutes from me.
Wow I just re-read this post and it's really depressing me, I can only imagine how you feel. lol.
So enough with the pity party - I made myself a little gift. Yah, it's not pathetic you know to make your own b-day gift if you enjoy playing with paper. :O)
I made myself a post it note holder for my purse because I never can find a piece of paper when I need one. And of course I couldn't just put post it notes in my purse. No siree! So I smurfed it up a little.
Have a look -
I used the soon to be retired stamp set Always Elegant! I stamped it in Basic Grey several times. I used my color spritzer. (love that thing) I also used the smallest framelit die and a cut out that I received from SU from the Occasions Mini that just expired. My Bad!
I used a 1" circle punch to punch out the For you and added it to the project with dimensionals. I used my fav brads - Antique Brads. I also used a Bitty Button and some linen thread and a pin from Vintage Trinkets.
This opens up like a match book. It looks very impressive lol. The size is 5 1/2" x 6".
This is the inside. I have these much larger post it notes and didn't know what to do with them. I did cut them down a bit to fit but I like the functionality of this project.
Well that's it for today everyone! If I don't chat with you tomorrow have a wonderful Mother's day!
