When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Happy Birthday Banner

This is not a whine, but a fact. I have sleep apnea. So what precious little energy I have goes to my top priorities - a husband, 2 little girls and a house. That leaves little time for the things I love - crafting, blogging and my Etsy store (you can see that by the fact I only have 2 items at the moment!).
When I do get the chance to craft I really love being able to finish a project. I was able to make this cute and colorful banner for my little girl's birthday later this month when the littlest one took a long nap yesterday. I had a great time and am pleased with the results. I might have to make a couple of these for the Etsy shop (when I have time/energy).
Please excuse the lighting in the pictures, we are finally getting some much needed rain in southeast Texas.
