I just flipped it over and cut away some of the balloon top, to give my vase a flat bottom! I don’t know about you, but this discovery made me SO excited! (Maybe I need to get out more, huh?)

I can’t believe that’s the balloon – you go girl 🙂 You amaze me. I’m kind of a physics geek, and blue moon is the name for the 2nd full moon in one month (we had one on new year’s eve – they happen about every 2.7 years). Tonight is a perigee moon though! – closest in it’s orbit to the center of Earth. So there’s sure to be some good tides! Reply I left you some love on my blog Reply Beautiful card, Amber!
