    my birthday memory, just a funny one... I was getting to have a slumber party at my house. I was probably in the 4th or 5th grade, and my Mom decided to give me a haircut the morning of my party. It turned out horribly and looked like she put a bowl on my head for the trim job. She had to rush me off to the beauty parlor to get it fixed!

  29. This is the cutest owl box. Feel better soon.

  30. That owl is a hoot! too cute! Hope you feel better--sinus infections suck!

  31. I love the colors you chose for this sweet owl! I think the eyes are just perfect and Jo is going to LOVE it! Thanks for sharing your creativity and video! My favorite birthday memory was about 12 years ago when my then, teenage son, gave me a poster frame filled edge to edge with pictures of him. So many memories and it just touched my heart that he spent so much time doing this for me. I hang it proudly in my craft room because it always makes me happy. :-) Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous phrase stamp! New follower here and now subscribed via YouTube. Hope you are feeling better! msmith38652 at gmail dot com

  32. Sweet little owl and he has candy - ever 'sweeter'. I am hoping along with Jo's Birthday hop and am a new follower of yours.

  33. What adorable little box! I have a soft spot for owls so I think this is especially cute! :)

  34. So adorable. Sorry you got sick. I bet the card would be amazing. My favorite birthday memory is my 30th birthday when My husband threw a party for me and hired a stripper to come dressed as a cop. Since our neighbors we're always calling the cops on us for everything and nothing, when I answered the door I fell for it totally. Enough said.

  35. So cute, love it. My favorite birthday memory is my 16th birthday when my mom threw me a party with all my friends (and that was many many years ago) but I still remember it as if it was yesterday.

  36. Oooh, that little owl box is adorable! I am following on Google now and my favorite birthday memory is all the childhood birthday parties that my mom threw for me and my sister. Games, presents and decorations every time!

  37. HI! My favorite b-day was my 31st. I celebrated in Amsterdam by getting my first tattoo! Now there's one to share with the grandkids, huh? ;) Fun blog. Glad it was on the hop. Now I can visit regularly.

  38. You can tell by my profile pic that I LOVE owls! This little shaped box is so cute and my favorite birthday memory is actually for my own daughter. On her 1st birthday we did an owl theme with owl decorated cupcakes, invitations and a handmade owl banner! Glad to have found your fun blog and I'm following on email.
