two things happened this week that are making me feel a bit old: jeff and i became (delightedly!) the great uncle and aunt of a sweeeeeeet little bunny called maddy* when our eldest nephew on the bergold side of the family became a dad; and on the gallagher side, our eldest niece, riley elizabeth, officially became a teenager. obviously both of these events were AWESOME, and much celebration ensued. in the case of the latter, there was a bit of a gift bag. see?
yes, miss riley is 13 now, but if she is tired of having her valentine's day birthday commemorated each year with heart-festooned presents, she is admirably restrained and never mentions it, lol. :) so what's in the bag? well, there are a few cardmaking goodies, obviously, and some fun nail art stuff, and OF COURSE she needed a rainbow purse like lindsay and maddie have. this version is topped off with a fun flower pin i found at michaels:
i hope that whatever you're doing today you are NOT being menaced by nasty winter weather, or at least you're able to out-craft any such shenanigans whilst remaining comfortable in your favorite art-making enviroment!
is it spring yet, darlings??!
*yes, we also have a 10-year-old niece called maddie; but luckily this is on the other side of the family! :)
