Happy Birthday to Me! (& a guest share)

Hey girls! 

Today is my birthday and since I think that it ranks up there with National Holidays, I'm taking the day off.  But I did want to take a minute to say           thank you      for all the support and positive feedback you have given me as I've gotten this blog going.

I absolutely LOVE sharing this stuff with you and I appreciate your kind words more than I can tell you.

While creating and sharing is fun, creating tutorials is WORK.  I will work up a tutorial for the mouse since it has been requested over and over but not on my birthday.  No WORK today.  Give me a couple of days and I'll have it for you.

But even on this "holiday" I am still going to provide you with a great project idea.  I have mentioned before that I have a very talented upline, Jenifer Lange.  Here is a box that she made: 

But wait until you see the inside!

Like that?  I know!  It is impressive and WOW WOW WOW in person.  The O Christmas Tree Pop Up die is available in the mini catalog.  But by putting it in this box it doesn't pop up - it stays up (like some people's trees are still doing mid-January).  My only contribution was assembling the star for her and taking the photographs.  If you like it, you can leave Jenifer a comment here.

Please note that her original inspiration was a box made by Sharon Field here (3d box tutorial).

Happy Birthday to you! I suppose since it's your birthday, you expect birthday presents, not prizes :) Hugs, Loni

No, not presents or prizes just Happy Wishes so you met all requirements!

Thanks girls for the happy thoughts

Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have/had a great day!!
I am still LOVING your blog and visit it daily. I just made the donkey and mouse, but had some trouble w/the mouse...not sure what his body was but I used the wide oval.

Enjoy your day!! Norma
