N and I are both feeling good these days. Our surgeries are behind us and we're focusing on doing some fun things.
One evening last week I asked my mom to come over and do a craft project with us. We made watercolor bookmarks similar to those I'd seen on the Lost Button Studio blog. It was so much fun to compare our results, laugh, and be crafty.
N made turtle and stoplight bookmarks.
My mom was colorful and experimented with shapes.
I was in a flowery mood. After my first one using a crayon, I decided to forego the crayons and play around with letting the watercolors bleed into one another. I made some others that didn't turn out so well. I'm afraid I cannot show you those.
This one is my favorite one! I didn't even notice him making a flower bookmark for me.
Which bookmark is your favorite?
It's an exciting weekend because tomorrow is my birthday! Yay! I love birthdays. I've been looking forward to this one; it symbolizes a new beginning for me. No one told me having surgery could be so emotional. I think everything happens for a reason and I've learned a lot about myself this year, although I'm now ready to put the year behind me.
Happy weekend, everyone!
