Celebrating with Family and Friends

Yesterday was a great day. We celebrated Mom's birthday.
We took Mom to the Grits Cafe in Forsyth, GA. The food definitely has a southern flair. The ambiance was really nice. The food was good, but the dessert even better.
We had a warm chocolate chip cookie with a big scoop of ice cream. Definitely not on my South Beach diet list of good foods to eat.
I hope you had a great birthday, Mom. You are the best Mother and Mimi ever!!!!
Then when I got home I found these goodies in the mail.
Sandy surprised me with these sweet gifts. The change of address card on the right was way clever. She made this fun "pals" picture album and put pictures in it of us from Nat's Garden Art Party Weekend. Love it!
This little bag came with a sleep mask and nail polish in these yummy colors. Thank you so much Sandy for thinking of me. As they say, "You are a keeper, Girl."
Lastly, I have a friend who finally has finished her new studio and has moved in her things and has started to decorate and organize. So in honor of her new precious space, I made her this.
Carla is an amazing seamstress and I made her something to go over her sewing area.
I printed the image onto a printable canvas fabric which gives it a nice texture and added little rhinestones to the crown and a button. It should look great in her new creative space. The little wrapped package is a neat set of Japanese sewing themed rubber stamps. I missed the picture opportunity.
When Carla is ready I will take some pics and show you her studio. It is really coming together great.
Catch you later, friends!
