Here's the parade of birthday goodness that has flown my way...
Can I say again how lucky I am to have made so many blogging buddies?
This first card is from my dear friend Connie who always gives the best gifts.
And the reason they are always the best is because it reminds you...Hey! Somebody knows you!
I can't tell ya how many times I have gotten something from a family member and thought to myself, "When was the last time you saw me wear leggings??? Never!"
But Connie always sends off things that make ya misty just because....she listens and knows ya.
So not only did she send off the skull card because well, I just love skulls.
But she also sent me the most amazing fabric (yes, I forgot to take a picture) that I love beyond words.
Ask Max how I slung it around my shoulders and twirled like Julie Andrews in the sound of music...I did!
Then came this awesome card from Paula, who isn't having the pleasure of being in the center of this crazy blizzard that is happening right outside my office window, because she is in sunny Florida.
And the best part was the extra sunshine she sent along!
If anyone hears about my winter woes too much, it would be Paula. This card comes from one of my oldest blogging friends.
I think she may have been my first pal in fact.
We are very much alike, although she reads more, isn't as spazzy and eats way better than I ever do...so jealous.
Mimi and I are like seperated at birth sisters, although she would be the good one and me the evil twin.
Well, this card had the kid in awe.
He wanted to know if I could make this.....Ummm..no!
He loved the collage feel, he's more artsy than crafty, and I do too.
But he did whip me up this little number all by himself last week.
He used my Copic Markers (with permission) and diligently worked on this baby for like an hour and a half.
Once it was all done, he decided it needed a skull because mom loves skulls.
But then hated what he drew.
Tried to remove it with the blender, but failed.
I told him, "Love the smoodge, reminds me you tried to make what I love."
This sparkly gem is from Donna down in Austin, Texas.
This year Donna, we have to meet up when I am in Austin!
Then this box showed up on my birthday and I was totally surprised.
It's from the Felt Mouse.
And her packaging skills are right up there with Connie's.
Inside was a little light set she made!
(sorry for the blurry picture)
And she should be happy to know, I now carry a reusable bag in my purse for trips to the store...you got me going a little green girl!
