I went to the open house at my former store this past Saturday. The new owner's mom kept asking me if it was weird to be, noooooo....but it must have been weird for her. I was there as a "lets meet the new owner & say goodbye to the old one". With that being the theme, I thought it best to bring something to work on. Otherwise it could have turned into not so much fun for me. But it ended up being fabulous!

I made Valentines treat boxes for my husband & my daughter. And I made this cool banner for Audra:

The Valentine she gave me was a super cool pillow with my word of the year "faith" on it. Her word of the year is "magical" so that's what I made her.

Now I have to say, this was super fun to make! No pressure to be fast & just get it done. I couldn't find gold crepe paper so I improvised & used gold napkins. I am so happy with the results! The napkins actually made it feel, dare I say, rich? If I could, I would embellish everything I could with these kind of borders!


  1. In person, that banner is so pretty. Well done!

  2. In total and complete love with my new banner! Trying to figure out how to hang it from those ridiculously high ceilings at home. Thank you for a most delightful gift!
