Happy Birthday to Me!
Since today is the first day of my 50th year on the planet (yep - I'm 49!) I decided to treat myself, hehe.....a breakfast of chocolate chip cookies and tea with tupelo honey. Does it get any better than that?
And isn't this a great mug?! It was a gift from a favorite collector, and such a surprise to receive it in the mail the other day (thanks, Eva!) The beautiful card you see in the background is from my friend Magdalena in Copenhagen - another fun surprise!
Tonight we're going out to my favorite Mexican restaurant, just a small gathering; John and myself, my friend Jen of Gypsy Mare Studios, her husband Kevin and adorable daughter Zoe - should be lots of fun, and a nice break, as this is still a work day for me (no rest for the wicked, hehe). ;)
There's a new tea tray listed on eBay today - I'm in love with the vibrant sunset colors on this one:
Etsy work still looms - can't seem to keep things listed for more than a day - "a good thing", as Martha would say, but keeps me scrambling...look for new work to appear there today or tomorrow. :)
I've also been having great fun buying hand spun yarns on Etsy (for knitting Christmas gifts, but also a birthday gift to myself), and have to share one of my favorite local sellers, Rachel-Marie, a.k.a. knittydirtygirl....YUMMY hand spun and hand dyed yarns for all you knitters - check her out!
That's about it for now. I'm off to finish my tea and cookies, knit a few rows on a winter scarf-in-progress, check out the latest issue of Artful Blogging (which includes a five page spread on fellow EHAG, AHAO and PFATT artist Melissa Valeriotte) and Art Doll Quarterly (which includes a photo of felow PFATT artist Robin's latest Witch doll) - then light a candle, put some tunes in the CD player and get to work......
Wishing everyone a happy and CREATIVE Wednesday!
