today's craft has been brought to you by the letter "K"
This is my sister's birthday gift.
She turned 18 a couple of weeks ago.
Yes. I'm a total slacker and haven't given her the gift yet.
Isn't she a total DOLL?
I adore her.
I made the "K" to go in her room. The room that she will only be living in for a few more months since she'll be heading off to COLLEGE this fall.
When I started college, she was just 4.
When I started college, the Spice Girls had a hit song on the radio.
I actually jammed out to "Mmmm Bop".
I took over an HOUR to get dressed to go anywhere.
I had never heard of Raffi, Laurie Berkner, or The Wiggles (say it ain't so!)
I had at least 3 silky shirts because that's what Jennifer Aniston wore on Friends.
My hair was...blonde. For a semester or two.
I drank REAL coke - not Diet Coke.
There wasn't a Starbucks on every corner. In fact, I'd never even entered a Starbucks.
Adidas shoes were soooo cutting edge.
I thought that 21 was old.
Northface jackets and Vasque boots were worn even if you had no intention of EVER hiking.
I wasn't ashamed to listen to Hootie and the Blowfish
I still had a Walkman.
I only had like 4 friends who actually owned a cell phone.
Those same 4 friends were the only ones I knew that actually owned a computer - and it was purely used for word processing.
I'm seriously o-l-d.
Speaking of old, I'm turning 32 on Monday.
I actually REMEMBER when my mom was 32.
Anyway - Happy belated birthday to my sweet, adorable, funny sister.
Hope you enjoy your little birthday "happy"!
I love you!
