|Happy Birthday To Me!|
Sorry I have not posted anything in a few weeks. My friend Eleni - who I know for over 30 years - came all the way from Houston, Texas for the holidays and to help me celebrate the big 50! Also, unlike in the USA, the holidays here in Brasil mean that things slow down, stores and restaurants close, and people go on a month long vacation. Especially in our small town! It's been quiet and so has my blog!
I hope everyone had an amazing holiday, that you got great art supplies, stencils, boxes of dark chocolate double stuff Oreos, and maybe a puppy! Wishing everyone a fantastic 2015!!!
I did not get many presents for my birthday - at my request - but I did get the BEST Birthday Card EVER!!! My BFF, Sue Macken, made me this card, which she mailed to Eleni so that Eleni could bring it to me in her luggage! Sneaky!! It arrived in an envelope. With a big note on it saying "do not open until December 24th". Yeah...my birthday is Christmas Eve, which is also why it is never a really big deal to me.
So I waited...until the 24th! Then I went on Skype with Sue and opened it while she and Eleni watched. As I opened the envelope and then slid the card out, it popped up and open into this amazing "Card In A Box".
