Birthday Gift

(He looks like he has four wings, just the shadow.)

This Dragonfly dropped dead and landed on our patio.
Perfectly intact.
What do you do with such a beautiful, huge bug?
Give it to my Sister-In-Law,
Tamar, as a birthday gift..
She LOVES Dragonflies!
 Remember her wedding?
 He looks great mounted in a shadow box.
Even added some special touches to the bag.

Sometimes God just drops you
a present!


  1. What a fabulous idea! Love the way he looks framed! So many birthdays...The Mister's is Friday!

  2. How sweet! Love the gift bag...too cute. Judy

  3. You are my hero. No only did you repurpose reuse recycle the dead, but you touched it. I would have been screaming for hubby to come clean it up and dispose of it. Seriously, it turned out beautiful.

    Remind me not to drop dead at your house :)

  4. That is great!!! Oh many and different colors...I stenciled them on a wall one time.

    Great gift.

  5. Christine
    What a thoughtful gift! I'll take a gift made especially with me in mind over anything store bought any
    day. It turned out so nicely too.

  6. I really love that, Christine. I found a dragon fly one time, but I didn't think to do that. My younger daughter (Whimsy) love dragon flies and butterflies.

  7. Don'tcha love when that happens? Great gift! (It looks fantastic!) Great story! And your sister-in-law is sure to love it! P*e*r*f*e*c*t!

  8. Sometimes God does drop us a present...hurray for you for seeing its beauty and saving it! What a great gift!

  9. I like how you take what life hands you, add a dose of creativity, and come up with another special project. I know she will like it so much.

  10. You are just the sweetest!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) That looks so beautiful in the shadow box!! You rock!! :)
    God gives us a lot of presents doesn't he??

    I am trying to do the same. Care to share 'How to' do and a suggestion for mat, pins or glue to attach dragonfly, etc.
