Artful Thursday....on Friday
In 10 days my oldest dotter will be turning 10. It really is hard to believe. I know this is so cliche' but it really does seem like yesterday that she was just a little baby. I love her so much. Well, in preparation for her birthday, I made a birthday crown. I love making the dotters crowns and they love getting them.
I used this wonderful velvet paper I got at Paper Source when I was away. Unfortunately, they do not have one here in Utah :( but you can order online. I sewed the velvet paper to a really stiff felt to make the shape. I then added all the embellishments. Some of those trims I got recently from my trip to L.A. The prices can't be beat in the fabric district. I got that cream trim for .30 a yard. I wanted to put her name on it, and I thought that a star would be perfect. She has a wonderful brightness and countenance about her. She is a star in our family.
I love making crowns and I make one for each of the dotter's every year for their birthday.
What are some special things you do for the ones you love on their birthday?
