Running With Inspiration-Inspired Mess

Day 3 is the new day 4 :)
Jamie and I were both exhausted last night and didn't get our challenge done for day 3 so we extended the deadline to today :)
The word for today was Inspired Mess :)
Can you guess what tomorrow's will be :P
So this is what I made for Inspired Mess.

Instead of creating something for the word Inspired Mess, I decided to create something for the person who the phrase "Inspired Mess" described for me...Jamie OBVIOUSLY!!
I made her a ribbon to wear that says BEST.
I was trying to think of one word to describe her and BEST is what I came up with :)
She is the best blogging BFF
the best friend
the best listener
the best giver
the best commenter
the best embroiderer
the best adventurer
the best momma to her boys
the best encourager
the best motivator
the best chatter
and the BEST inspired mess I know :)
Thank you Jamie!!
I love you sooo sooo sooo much and I can't wait to send you this ribbon to wear on your cute shirt!!
Do you want to see something so cute too??
After I made this for Jamie today, two of my third grade boys asked if they could have my scraps.
They took them back to class and came back an hour later with this CUTE little ribbon for me!!:

love love love my students :)
I also have a picture of the wreath that I made for Style School. It's really just a sneak peak I guess because it's a pretty bad picture. It was taken with the hipstomatic app :)

I used vintage brooches for real. I will get a better picture for you tonight hopefully!!
Alright, double check yourself:
