i love birthdays!
mine the most, but i bet YOURS is a close second.
i try to remember my friends birthdays whenever i can (which means whenever i write them down). everyone needs to feel special on the day they were born!
so my friend jen (who isn't a follower of this blog, so i assume she doesn't read it.) has a birthday on the 11th. she will be 30 (i KNOW-so young!) and a card for a big day like this just won't cut it.
so after stalking a million blogs, i came up with this one to use as my idea starting point. i did switch mine up a bit...i covered the entire back of the notebook to give it a little more finished look. and because it is jen's big 3-0, i threw in some matching magnets.
i know-i'm always the giver.
i couldn't just throw them in a box and be like 'here you go. enjoy your day. eat another piece of cake.', so i got a metal lid from maybe an empty pickle jar (too big to be a jelly jar). after priming it and painting it a creamy cream, i put the magnets on it. i'm sure she will chuck it soon after opening it, but i wanted it to look good when she opened it.
so there you go-an easy, fast gift. but it looks like i care-which, jen, if you are reading this-I DO!
