Birthday week.

Yep. This week is our birthday week. Jaku has his birthday on Wednesday (turning 37) and I have mine on Thursday (turning 37). Usually it's a fun filled week. This year I am having a walk in cake and tea at my house on my birthday. Yesterday I watched the US Open and I made 58 little flowers (as you can see in my new banner) using a variety of Making Memories embellishment kits. I loved doing it. After I am done posting this I am going to make some invitations using the little flowers.

To celebrate this week I am giving away a little making memories goodie box EVERY DAY to a randomly picked name. You know my heart is that it's more blessed to give than to receive. Matt 5:14 says Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. So please come and join the blog party this week. Jump in with both feet. I will show you the invitations. And if you read my blog and you did not get an invitation to come Thursday and you are in the neighborhood... drop by! I love surprises!

Till tomorrow.
Smiles and love
Wilna

And you should know that I appreciate all the thought that goes into your posts. You are an amazing girl.. you inspire me to be a better scrapbooker and you inspire me to walk closer with God. . Sooo thanks...

Those flowers are stunning. Love them.

My birthday was 4-25 and for the past few years I tell my husband that we are celebrating Jeanaka as my name is Jeannie and every day I get to celebrate - a week long celebration. He will cook for me, help me clean, give foot massages, treat me out to dinner one night, maybe lunch another and or breakfast on Saturday or Sunday.

I hope you have a fun filled week and be sure to share some photos.

Jeannie

Happy birthdays to both of you!! I bet your party and home will be so full of joy. I wish I could come and crash your tea party. =) Wasn't the US Open awesome??!! My hubby was watching with his golf club owners and family here at our home. We had lots of good food, the kids laughed and played all day...it was a good thing. I love your flowers too. I can't wait to see the finished invites. Happy scrapping and gearing up for your party! Love to you...
