Sweet Blossom had a birthday yesterday, her 17th.
We began the day with her traditional breakfast of home-made cinnamon scrolls at 6.30am...
...followed by the opening of the gifts. This year Mr E wrapped them in boxes filled with balloons!
The first box was huge and after hunting through the balloons Blossom found a DVD course on SLR photography, and inside one of the balloons was an 8GB SD card from her older brother.
In the middle size box were more balloons, with a box of chocolates at the bottom...
...and finally the small box, without balloons, that held her extra special gift!
We gave her the day off school, so no surprises what she did all day. I'll share some gorgeous shots she took of the two of us when she sends them over to my computer. :-)
I was so inspired by Lisa's blog post about her creative studio that once Blossom dissapeared with her camera for the day, I got to work putting my own creative space in order.
I am a soul who needs structure and organisation so I can see what I have, and be reminded about it! I was like a kid in a candy store yesterday discovering 'lost' fabrics, notions, trims etc, all put somewhere 'safe' but then misplaced.
I made use of what I had for storage, but did spend $24 on pretty boxes at the local '$2 shop'. My books of French General and Cath Kidston labels also helped with keeping track of what was to be housed in the boxes.
Now to tackle the other side of this front verandah area (my office)...more of that tomorrow.
Have you set up a creative space?
