Well, I finally made it back to what makes me tgdesigns - felt, buttons, hot glue, mason jars, embroidery thread. Oh and a best friend from childhood visiting me (first friend to visit me in Des Moines in the 9, going on 10 years I've lived here...better be seeing some more familiar faces soon!) and I promised her a handmade bday gift. She's way younger than me, just turned 27 while I'm fixing to turn 28 (in 6 months I know, crap I missed my half birthday...again!). She told me she was into zebra print these days. I should have known this since I helped her find a super cute zebra print rug on Overstock one day after a desperate facebook status update! She likes headbands I found out as well so I decided to put the two things she loves into one...
and came up with this:

It was so nice to have Tiff here this weekend, we've been friends since she moved to town in 1st grade. Our phone numbers growing up were 455-3105 and hers was 455-3150. Her mom and my mom are best friends. Her moms name is Traci and her moms brothers name is Todd. Yeah my brothers name is Todd too. My brother Todd dated her sister for while in Jr. High and her sister also took family photos about a year ago. Our families go way back and it's so nice to have a best friend from long ago, which makes me feel old saying.
In honor of Tiff's visit, a small gallery of Traci and Tiff pictures :)
