Happy Independence Day!
It's once again time to celebrate the birth of America ... or at least give Americans an excuse to get together with friends/family and EAT!! I love the 4th of July ... the weather is hot, the company is great and the fireworks are always so festive. Good times!!
I tried to make a patriotic insert for my Simply Adorned necklace charm LAST year ... actually made two or THREE attempts at it and didn't like ANY of 'em!! While I was Skyping with my BFF, Kathy, yesterday I happened to mention that I wanted to make one but didn't want to since I had no success before ... all she said was, "You need a little flag that you can stamp as the background" and I just went, "Duh!!" I have had this "God Bless America" stamp from SU for YEARS!! I got it in 2002 to be exact ... it was made to help raise money for the victims of 9/11. It was actually the second thing I ever bought from SU (the first being the set called "Wildflowers" to adorn a little nanny bench I bought for my daughter for Christmas one year). My friend, Shellee, asked me if I'd like to buy one to support the cause ... which I did, but I remember thinking, "What am I gonna do with this?" after I got it!
Long story short, Shellee is now my upline ... so there! And now I have a fun piece of jewelry I can wear to celebrate the day. Hope all y'all have a wonderful day wherever you are!
