{post 2} HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!

Hello, friends:}


Scroll down to get 5 extra chances to win the BIG Unity Stamp set on Friday!! **NOTE:: you have all week to complete these chances!! Giveaway ends on Saturday, August 7.


Today is a GREAT day--it's my MOM's birthday!!!!!!!! [The pic is from Christmas 2009 and we are wearing our scoodies that I made everyone.] And because she is my #1 customer at Jelly Bean Designs....I'll show you some of her favorite things to order from JBD**NOTE:: Actually, I sent these to her for her bday...so it wasn't really an order...but you know what I mean:}


My MOM owns her own mowing business in Star City, IN (email me if you live in that area!! I'll hook you up!). She gets really hot...so I found a tutorial on how to make your own cool ties. She looooooooooves these things! You just soak and wear--they really do work! I used to have the kids in the classroom use it when they were "feeling sick". It always worked and made them feel better!! So I sent her two more of these. LOVE it!!
 
I just recently made one of these for Mother's Day. They are a teacup made into a birdfeeder. I thought it was such an awesome idea. I made it for MOM because she loves her flower gardens around her home. She always has the BEST flowers and most beautiful yard!! She liked her teacup so much that she wanted another one. So I sent her one of these too! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! The pics are actually from my teacup birdfeeder. I had to have one too:}
So....in honor of my MOM {her name is LENORA--love love love it! Unique!}...you get two chances to win this BIG stamp set by Unity!! All you have to do is leave 2 separate comments below on THIS POST. COMMENT 1: Leave a comment about something you saw here or go to JBD and tell me what you like COMMENT 2: Leave some love for my MOM!! She reads this blog too!! So tell her HAPPY BIRTHDAY:}


That's it for me...I will post again later today or tonight the winner of the Ippity set--I'm sorry I forgot to do that! No worries!! I'll post that soon:}


Hope you are having a great day! Lots of love!!! Be blessed:}

Happy Birthday Savannah's MOM! I just love the pics of the both of you! You are both just to cute. I just love those wraps. We had some but lost them in a wreck coming back from a weekend at the lake. I might have to make some for the fam. They would love it! I might have to ask you a few question though...if that's alright. I hope your MOM has the best birthday ever. Thanks for sharing Sav. You are just the sweetest.

StampinCathy said...

Ok Sav! I know this is a trick question. Cuz I love love love everything you do. So how do I pick? I love all your cards and projects you make. If I have to say one....it will be the creative and inspiring candle holders. But I think it is unfair to pick just one. Hugs!
Happy Birthdy to your MOM again!

Tracy said...

I just love the teacup bird feeder! That is so cute and I love how you put a spoon on the saucer! :) The candle wrappers in your shop are really sweet too.

Tracy said...

Happy Birthday to you Mrs. Lenora! Hope you have a great day!

Lynn said...

Love the tea cup bird feeder! I knew I shouldn't have sold all those tea cups at my yard sale.

Lynn said...

Happy Birthday Lenora! Are you ready for school to start? You must be so proud of your sweet Savannah!

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

Sav, you are the cutest sweetest! I love both your ties and your tea cup feeder and your whole shop! AWWWWWWW, we need to meet. Though I think it would be awkward for other people because we'd just be hugging the whole time.

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

Happy birthday, Lenora! You must be the best mom in the world to have a daughter like Sav, she was really raised right! Please send me some pointers. ;) I hope your birthday is as lovely as you and your daughter are!

Happy Birthday Lenora!!

Savannah is so super sweet (without being saccharine and phony) - and very, very talented. You raised her well.

FibreJunky said...

I really really like the floral coupon cover/padfolio. That fabric (red/brown) is so pretty and I am always trying to find ways to keep myself organized, so things like that appeal to me. When they're pretty - well, all the better.

Janet said...

Happy Birthday Sav's Mom! Have a wonderful day!

Janet said...

I love the card titled "you're a little happy". It's so cute!

Regina said...

Lenora - Happy Birthday to you! How wonderful to have a daughter who so freely shares from her heart and of her talents. You must be so proud.

Regina said...

Sav - I always love your creative designs and creations that you put together. I didn't realize you had an Etsy store - what a treat to visit.

My fav card from JBD is the God's Love Greeting Card - I'm always a sucker for the notebook paper background, and just LOVE the sentiment! thanks for sharing, Sav!

Traci S. said...

Happy Birthda, Lenora! Congratulations! I will pray that you have a delightful celebration today. And, that the Lord will bless you beyond your hopes. May the "Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious. Numbers 6:24-25"

You have a wonderful, encouraging daughter!

Savannah, introduce your Mom to my blog, will you please?

Happy Birthday to you mom SAV and LOVE all your projects!! Wow!! I need to know how to make those Snoodies!! They are adorable!

Traci S. said...

Hi Savannah~

I really love your idea of that tea cup and saucer bird feeder. I collect tea cups, saucers, and pots! I need to copy this idea!

If I could only pick one things from your ETSY store, I would choose the card that is romantic and has the keys across it! Wonderful!

BTW, what is the item that you stand your cards on when you photograph them? I really need something to keep my cards steady. Thanks for letting me know.

Remember,
