I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic.  Well, actually more like a husband-proclaimed, but whatever.  The first step is admitting it, right?

Anyhow, I was >this< close to making this purchase for Allison's birthday:
So cute, so girly.  It was $25, without shipping.  Couple of quick clicks and it could have been mine.

Buuuut since I was cut off, I had to either go without, or come up with my own version.  So I lugged out this tote full of scrapbooking supplies that has been collecting dust for YEARS now, and got to work.  After about 30 minutes, and without spending a single penny, I made her this:
You can't really tell from the picture, but each circle is tied with a little yellow ribbon.  By no means is it perfect, but it was different, and Allison loved waking up to it this morning!  I plan on only saving her name and hanging it up in her room.
