As I have mentioned briefly, upcoming changes for our family are plenty. I have had to be more proactive than I'd like to be about being prepared for things like birthdays and Easter. I'm more of a last minute, late night kind of person, but in our current state if I continued to be that person, Easter baskets would be filled with gross close out candy and there would be a little boy who felt like his birthday was ignored. So, I'm patting my own back for having L's birthday year-in-review ready a few weeks ahead of schedule. While hanging M's birthday installation, which I loved, I determined that I needed to do something a little simpler for L.
So his year-in-review pictures were printed, cut into triangle shapes, mounted on crazy bright patterned scrapbook paper and sewn into double fold bias tape.
We could possibly even keep it and hang it in his room.
Even though his birthday is still weeks away, he already saw it and really wants to keep it up, and I see no harm in getting the most use out of this as possible.
**thank you for reminding me that kindness is still heavily outweighing criticism.
