a birthday project

November 26, 2011
I just hosted a tea & coffee get together with my high school girlfriends and remembered a little birthday project I did for my friend, Michelle, when we were seniors. It's one present that I've always been proud of and I thought it might be nice to share with blogland.

1. Get strips of butcher paper/ use a chalkboard/ whatever you want.
2. Carry the supplies and writing utensils wherever you go for a day or so.
3. When you see one of the birthday girl's (or boy's) friends, have them write a little message for said birthday person.
4. Print each of the photos out and put them in an album/scrapbook/whatever you'd like.

It's quick, easy, and really funny/endearing to see what people write (see: my Calculus teacher who advised Michelle not to get pregnant).

And you get to see little high school me! (Although I think I look exactly the same. Ha.)

  2. Cel, I LOOOOOVE that blue book!! It currently sits on a shelf at my office and provides a wonderful pick-me-up when I need that something extra to get me through a long day at work... It never fails to put a smile on my face :) You're the BEST <3

    I would have written "Always love." & it made me so happy that someone already did. :]
