I was traveling yet again last week when it came time for my birthday. It’s funny. In my mind my birthday is both a personal new year and the point when I can legitimately begin looking for Autumn to arrive. (I love Autumn. Favorite season.) So, I’m always surprised when the phone rings with well-wishes, or boxes arrive in the mail.
It was especially delightful to arrive back home to a stack of such boxes filled with beautiful, thoughtful, amazing gifts. The photo shows just a sample of things, the birthday suite of the post’s title.
Now, I get to indulge myself by designing and writing my ‘Thank You’ notes. I’m using a stencil and some of the line drawings from my first blog and, even though the sample with the magnolia doesn’t seem quite ‘there’ yet, I’m having a blast.
Maybe I’ll post about the finished designs.
