Thanks, Heidi!

I can't wait to leave on my mission adventure. But I can because I love my family and friends that I will be parting from for a while. In regards to blogging, however, I'm hoping it will get me on some sort of schedule where my posts won't be so random. At least that's the goal for the next blog.

Today's goal is to give a huge shoutout to my friend Heidi. She is a much more motivated blogger than myself as you can see here. I've been so inspired by her blog that I've been a little crafty myself lately.

First, I took her advice and bought some cardstock and made these cards:

I also pre-decorated the envelopes with stickers and stamps, but they're kind of boring so no picture. I've also made envelopes out of magazine pages before, and really need to start getting back into the habit of that, because they're awesome.

Last night I went out with my two BFFs from high school and one of their guy friends to celebrate Mary passing her defense and getting her Master's degree. I thought this was an occasion for flowers, but because I am trying to save money for my upcoming world travels I was thinking of something creative and thoughtful that I could put together at home.

This was the result:

Folded Origami Lilies!

I even glued them into green straws as stems:

This was the finished bouquet:

I think they were a success for a first time Origami flower folder. So in conclusion, Thanks, Heidi for inspiring me. You're awesome :)
