I appliqued (by machine) some vintage fabric pieces over the original.
The finished project.
A family birthday banner! I hope to add buttons and embroider our name and birth dates to finish up the upcycled '80's banner.
Today is my day! My Birthday. I'm headed off to Sundara Spa with my mom (who has graciously treated me for the past 3 years) for an overnight. My husband has also so graciously taken 2 days off of work each year to be with our kids so that I can relax. The 2 days away ends up being more like my New Year's Eve in regards to the time I have to reflect on everything and tweak things to how I would like them to be. One of the biggest decisions I have made in the past, while on my introspective retreat was to home school our daughter. Looking back, it was one of the boldest decisions I have made but that I do not regret. So, off I go tomorrow to ponder life while I rest my 39 year old body in a warm tub of bubbles.
