This little post is dedicated to the craftiness all around me! 

By that, I mean, friends & family that have recently given me handmade birthday gifts!!

Above is a scrapbook that my mom made for me!  She has never scrapbooked, but she put together this album for my 40th, so that I can fill it in with many photos and embellishments from my party.  She even admitted that she could see how scrapbooking could be addicting!!!!  (yes!) 

Below, is, of course, homemade chocolate biscotti from my SIL!  I have blogged about her biscotti many times.  It is FABULOUS!  She even altered an oatmeal container to store it in!  Way to go, Jan!   

A few weeks ago, I tried to learn how to crochet little scrapbooking flowers…and failed miserably. 

So, (probably out of pity–just kidding), my MIL and my nephew’s wife, Meagan, made me gobs of those little cuties!!! 

Lisa, my amazingly creative scrapper friend, made me a little mini album out of used gift cards!!!!!!!!  She included pictures of us, family pics and of course, Starbucks stuff!  Look at the cute little coffee cup paperclips that she bought on Etsy!  She even gave me a few with my gift!!!! 
Amazing craftiness all around me….such an inspiration!  Thanks everyone!!!! 

6 days till 40!  It’s getting closer!
