I also was able to spend an afternoon with my good friends Cammy and Hope. Cammy made me this beautiful, delicious coconut cake. She knew coconut cake is a favorite of mine. It had sooo many to die for layers of coconut goodness! I savored every bite and I'm so sad it is all gone!
Hope gave me this sweet little notebook and two of my favorite colored copic markers. The cover of the notebook is made of very thin wood. So pretty. Hope also knew I have been wanting scalloped scissors and she was so sweet to find a pair for me! I love them so much! Cammy gave me the most beautiful silver glass glitter garland which I couldn't wait to hang in my studio. You'll see it in the photos below. I love my gifts so much girls, thank you, and thank you for the great day. But mostly, thank you for being my friends, which is the best gift of all.We have had two back to back, major snow storms here and at last count, 40+ inches have fallen. The kids have been home all week and we have stayed cozy playing games, watching movies, reading and drinking hot chocolate. I also have been busy puttering in my studio, rearranging furniture. David helped haul a desk downstairs from our bedroom so I would have a place to sit and work on my computer because usually my big work table is covered in projects. It was all spurred on by me needing special place to hang the garland from Cammy. I also wanted a place to hang an inspiration board.
So here is the finished product!
I'm very happy with how everything turned out. I especially love how the garland looks above my board.
The desk was my Grandma's and I truly love having it to sit at. But, I couldn't just let it be as it was, I had to make it look a little more like Kelli. So this morning while the kids were outside sledding and David was digging us out, I cut pieces of pretty wallpaper that Cammy had given me a while back, to fit on the front of each drawer. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I better get busy because I have many ideas floating around in my brain.
