DIY Cosmic Journey

Two weeks ago I jumped on the DIY blogger bandwagon and decided to attempt to create a random galaxy printed item.

It also has me itching to visit London and France someday, but first it’d be nice to learn the basics of the French language.

We decorated the birthday cake that my sweetums bought me, had dinner at Wildfire, and everyone gave me wonderful gifts!

Speaking of clothes that I haven’t had to buy… Continue reading
