I LOVE, as I know many, many of you do as well.  I recently purchased a birthday banner from Jennifer Anderson of Makentake.  She was so great to work with, nice, knowledgeable, and super helpful.  I'm super excited to see how the Birthday Banner for an upcoming event turns out; I'll keep y'all posted :)
