Leap Year!

As we know, this year is the kind that only comes around every four years- it is a leap year!   I have always wondered what it would be like to have a birthday on February 29th and only have a ‘real’ birthday every four years.  Crazy! 

Well, my friend happens to be one of those leap year babies. 
She told me she remembers her ‘first’ birthday and what a big deal it was.  How fun!  She invited me out to dinner to celebrate her birthday and she jokingly told me I should make her a birthday sash.  ‘Oh yes,’ I thought, ‘You ask and you shall receive!  I WILL be making you a fancy birthday sash!’  Afterall, you only turn ‘eight’ once!

So, I threw this sash together in the afternoon before the birthday dinner.   

I added some big pink satin flowers to give it a bit more personality- why not!?   My friend has a big personality, so the sash might as well match!

I was really excited to give this fun sash to my friend for her birthday – cause I know she would wear it the whole night and love every minute of it.  But, being the doofus that I am, I managed to walk out the door without the nicely wrapped sash!  AHHH!  
I was so frustrated with myself!  

So, it is the day after her ‘real’ birthday and I am still in possession of the gift. 
I will give it to her soon and she can wear the sash and have another birthday! 

Happy 8th Birthday to you Andrea!  Maybe you can wear the sash when you turn 9?!
