Happy 4th Birthday Evan!

I’m not quite sure where the last 4 years have gone, but today Evan turns 4 years old. I wish he was feeling better, but at least we are at home and he’s having a good day. He is going to go to the pediatrician for his 4 year well check visit and to see if they still think he has bronchitis or if he has a viral infection on top of it. He’s still running a fever after taking antibiotics for 3 days already. So far cold and flu season has hit our household hard. I can’t wait for it to be over, but unfortunately winter isn’t even here.

I wanted to share my glass block project with you. I was able to get Roger to drill holes through these blocks with a diamond crusted drill bit. I then put in a string of 35 Christmas lights and decorated the front with velum paper that I stamped. This first block uses Season of Friendship and is stamped with Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red.  The ribbon for the bow is not Stampin’ Up! but I needed wired ribbon to help it to keep it’s shape.

On this second block I used Baroque Motifs and Delightful Decorations. I stamped the swirls in Old Olive and the ornaments in Ruby Red and Not Quite Navy. I drew in the hangers with a Stampin’ Write marker in Basic Black.

I have another busy weekend coming up with a Shop Til’ You Drop vendor fair, but at least this weekend my Sunday after church is free. I’m looking forward to the upcoming Thanksgiving break too. In about a month my schedule will slow down and I can hopefully catch up.
