Does it sound greedy to say that my favorite holiday (after Halloween!) is my birthday? It’s not the presents, I promise! I loved my birthday when I was younger because I was one of five children and it was one of the few times I got all of the attention. Now that I’m older I LOVE celebrating others’ birthdays as well. I also love making crafts for birthdays! This balloon banner birthday card tickles my fancy, and I definitely have to make it for the next birthday person in my life. Do you love birthday crafts too?
