a welcome sunrise and flower tutorial

This morning, very early (5 am early), Bre and I headed over to my parents new house and took a picture of the sun rising. They didn't take possession until noon today so we had to sneak onto their front deck...luckily it's vacant right now ;)

I rushed home, printed out the picture and added it to the frame that I had already made. Then I wrapped it up, drove back to their new place and left it at their front door so when they arrive later on today they'll get their first house warming gift, I do feel pretty sleepy right about now LOL! We are truly blessed because a couple of months ago they lived just over 3 hours away...now it's only 5 minutes!!!!


If you'd like to see how I made the flowers on the "Welcome" frame head on over to Little Light Studio for a tutorial :)

My In Bloom class begins tomorrow and I can't wait!

Have a happy weekend,

What a wonderful and thoughtful gift! How lucky to have family so close too. Mine are all at least 12 hours away. Much too far! I miss you too and will miss our connection through SIStv. Keep making beautiful things and we'll always stay in touch. Have a great weekend!

Fantastic house-warming idea. My folks just moved last fall from 4 hours away to 45 minutes. LOVE it. Enjoy!
