The Birthday Crafting Bug

I have to say today was a great way to celebrate becoming another year wiser (ehem).  The day got off to a great start when my sweet work friends brought donuts and Chicken Minis for breakfast AND to took me out to lunch at P.F. Chang’s.  Then when I got home, my awesome husband told me we were going to dinner at Taste of Thai where we were greeted by a table full of our friends!  Surprise party for Meredith!


Wish we could have gotten a pic of everybody, but thanks to all who could make it to the dinner, and we missed you if you couldn’t.  Dinner was delicious and Lori’s chocolate chip cookies topped off the meal.  I seriously won’t have to eat for a week!  Thanks again guys 😀

It seems the wonderful world wide web knew it was my birthday too, because I kept stumbling on tons of fun craft and cooking projects to add to my to-do (to-try) list. After that bird mobile, I’ve been itching to stay crafty and I don’t think I’ll be running out of projects any time soon!

Here are some of my favorites.  If you try any of these out, please let me know how they go and any tricks you learn along the way.
