May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

A few memories of yesterday

Before I start, I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who have sent me birthday wishes over the last couple of days. Every wonderful wish has made me smile so THANK YOU!! Birthdays are always a big deal in our home. Emily, my little cake decorator, baked and decorated this beautiful cake for me. She also made the sunflower you see. It is a pencil holder and the sunflower is a pen she decorated. Katie and Tim gave me gift cards to Kohls. I can always find something I like there. The paper I'm holding is my gift from Mike. It is a 4 day trip to LasVegas that we will take in a few weeks. It's been about 10 years since we've been to LasVegas so this will be fun! It even says on the paper we will be flying FIRST CLASS on Southwest Airlines. (Ok, for those of you who are familiar with the airlines, Southwest doesn't have a first class section. It is entirely coach! hahaha) I can't wait to go. Mike has even planned for his parents to come and watch the children. Oh I need a vacation! Yes, I really do need a vacation.
Thank you everyone for the wonderful gifts. You are the best family and I love you all!
All the kiddos helped light the candles. 45 candles was a lot to light, so many I'm surprised the fondant on the cake didn't go up in flames! Thankfully after a quick wish I was windy and blew them out with one breath. As for the rest of the day, it was exceptionally busy with visits to the dentist, boy scouts and other scheduled errands. It was so unusually busy with all of us going in different directions that my birthday dinner consisted of McDonalds! Yikes, that doesn't happen often, but it did today of all days.
Thanks for letting me share my day with you.
Hugs and Blessings,

Sounds like a perfectly beautiful, regular busy mom's birthday. Looks like you did enjoy. Hooray for the trip. That is great.

Grab a cup of coffee and take time to enjoy some posts from the past
