Hi! I’m Erin from BringingUpBurns and I am so honored to be here guest posting at 30 Handmade Days. Mique has been an inspiration to me for some time! So, here’s a little about me and those I’m Bringing Up:
I have a soft spot for Sapphire martinis. I Google everything. I have Ab Fab girlfriends. I constantly have 5 projects in the works. I bake. I blog. I garden. I can’t say no to fresh flowers. (Or the beach.) I have a love/hate relationship with Diet Coke. I pound the pavement with my Nike+ Magic Shoes. I love being at home. I’m hot for Teacher. (He’s also a football coach.) A big piece of my heart is in Chicago.I both lost and found myself the day my first born was laid in my arms. I don’t like coffee, chocolate or peanut butter. My mom says that’s unAmerican. I’m a bit of an insomniac. I buy my blonde. (But I didn’t used to have to.) I read. I sing Showtunes. I love Jesus Christ, Barack Obama, and Miley Cyrus. (Yes, it’s possible to love all 3. Yes, I am 34.)
I’m wife to Mr. Burns (that teacher I was talking about!) Together we are Co-CEOs of, Bringing Up Burns, a family owned business of raising happy kids! I’m the maid, laundress, chauffeur, owie kisser, personal shopper, train track assembler and occasionally the exotic dancer. He’s the bread winner, anything electronic fixer/setter upper, trash man, lego engineer, dog walker, football coach, and my secret weapon. His Love is to me what spinach is to Popeye.

I also used it to personalize the ornaments I gave a favors at my “Eclipse on the Lawn” party last December. I love how easy it is to make fabric things personalized, festive and FUN! I hope you’ve enjoyed my tutorial. I’d love to see what you make using this idea. For all of Mique’s sweet readers, use code 30DAYS for 25% off your entire purchase at HauteBlueB, good thru Friday!
