A Girly Birthday Present

My close friend Amy has a daughter just a month younger than my daughter. Actually, we were pregnant all three times at the same time, having our two eldest daughters two days apart and as she was getting ready to deliver her number three (a boy) I was finding out I was expecting my number three (a girl) as well!
So needless to say our children have all been friends for some time now.
Her middle child is turning eight, which in their religion means a Baptism Birthday.
I had a necklace charm I thought went well with the Baptism theme. I made a bead dangle in her Birthstone color to attach to it.

This Birthday girl also happens to be quite a girly girl. Since her room is done up in Shabby Chic, I made her a Shabby Chic Jewelry holder complete with vintage buttons.

Of coarse I needed to demonstrate how the jewelry holder worked. So I made a pair of earrings.

Then another, just because I was having fun.

And since no one was interrupting my quiet jewelry making time...

I went ahead and made another set in a blue I thought she'd like!

Hey, you gotta do what you like when you can! Even if you have to use cute girls having Birthdays as an excuse!
