friend: “i have a surprise for you!”
friend: “don’t act so excited?”
me: “i’m jumping up and down, come on over.” (it was the day i decided to paint my kitchen…you know…2 days before thanksgiving…my kid’s were still in PJ’s and i had paintbrush in hand.)
friend: “we’ll come soon.”
So now my interest is peaked and I’m thinking, “What did she get me?” She walks in, tells me to close my eyes and pulls out this adorable wreath she just made! Yes, made! Isn’t it precious? She said, “I made it this morning while sitting on the couch with my kids. I used a wire clothes hanger and pliers to unravel and shape it. Then I wrapped garland around it.” Then she was on her way to Michael’s to find the most, perfect fat ribbon she could find…to hang it on her front door. She had seen one in Ballard Designs and wanted her very own! I love it! I love that I have a friend who is excited to pop over and show me her creativity..and doesn’t care that it’s mid-day, I have paint in my hair AND my kids are still in their PJ’s.
