I’ve been digging my 40s. Not had a problem with them at all. It’s a good time in life. Kids are a bit older. The pace of life begins to slow down a bit…kind of. It still has its moments, but that may be more self-inflicted due in large part to owning my own business.
At any rate, other than this funky shoulder and getting ‘older vision’, I can’t complain too much.
It’s ‘turning 50’ that I think will get to me somewhat. I always looked at those people in my neighborhood that were that age, and I have to say, it just seemed on the ‘old’ side. Not old, but just a whole different decade of life. Don’t know that I’m ready for that…even though hubby is already 52. ;) Thankfully I still got two years to prepare though.
Can I just take two 40s instead?
But birthdays can bring good things. Great things. For example, our Brown Paper Packages event continues today with some darling bags by our Miss Laura!
How fun is that? Totally customized brown paper bags with a pop of color and foo foo. Love the mix of textured paper feathers with real feathers!
I played around with quite a few of Kerri’s designs, before finally settling on the feathers and the daisy. I have a large supply of feathers from Bella Blvd, and I knew I could work them in right along her cut files. I ran the die cut feathers thru a chevron embossing folder to add some texture, before adhering them right along with a few of the real feathers. For the die cut daisies, I cut 3 of the flowers, in varying sizes, so I could layer them together. I also added some quick pen lines around the edges of the die cuts, just to break up all of the white and bring in a small touch of black.
Soooo…like, Laura, my birthday is today??? (wink wink)
And now, the giveaways continue!
I enlisted the help of Laura with some Bella Blvd goodies to give away this fine birthday week! Take a look at this set….it’s sooooo awesome! I do see some feathers in there so you can make your own foo foo brown paper packages. :)
This giveaway is limited to U.S. residents only please.
Here’s how you can win. All contests this week will end Sunday and winners will be posted Monday. Good luck!
