It’s My Birthday!

Happy Birthday to me!  (Though I have to stop counting the years soon, lest I feel too old…;-)  Age is only a number!

I’ve spent the day doing nothing!  Well, not really – merely chipping away at my mega-sized must-get-done-before Christmas list etc.  I made 4 pop-up cards this morning.  Well, I designed them all in Illustrator, then printed them out, cut them out, assembled them, wrote the addresses in my best calligraphy, and sent them off.

I have a blister on my thumb from all that cutting.

And finished up yet another batch of my double chocolate peppermint bark (which broke in half when I cut it up), and made some itty bitty chocolate trees for Lil Tot’s class.  Now it’s downstairs for me, to finish up the last 9 of my Japanese New Year’s greeting cards (to be sent to the relatives in Japan), then to bundle up the chocolates to bring to Lil Tot’s school tomorrow, and hopefully sort out the Xmas presents and stocking stuffers I have squirrelled away in the closet…and maybe, just maybe, tackle my email inbox.  (1100 messages, yikes!)

But I have no regrets – it’s a good a day as any other!!

What did you do for your last birthday?  Was it fun, relaxing, a wild birthday bash?  Do tell!

  8. Hi there!
    Happy Bday to you! I am impressed with all your skills and those cards are amazing! I love sending out (and receiving) Christmas cards each year but unfortunately this year Grinch stole my cards! I had to skip this tradition this year due to being overwhelmed and really hope to resume in 2011.
    My oldest is 7 now so he raids our closets before Christmas, so all purchases have to be carefully tucked away in the attic.
    I'm turning 40 in 2011 (yeah!) and thinking of doing something really special for myself. Healthwise i mean.
    Anyway, sorry to rattle on but also my spikesandstuds beginner kit came and am so excited! am thinking of studding a thrifted white leather clutch.

  9. Happy Birthday!! Sounds like you did WAY too much for a Birthday girl…isn't that the day you get to lounge around and do a whole lotta nothing?!
