I hope everyone is off to a great start so far in 2009 and will have many blessings throughout this year. Valerie and I made these flower vases for all the special girls in her life and gave them out as Christmas gifts. The flowers are actually pens. If you try this project, please make sure your pens work before securing the flower(s) to them. Each vase included a note saying thank you for being a special flower in Valerie's garden of life.
