My birthday was last week, just in case you missed it. I am now 52 years young. I don't feel old, so must be I'm not, right?!
I wanted to say thanks to all my bloggy friends for making my birthday such a great day! I had so many well wishes on Facebook. And then there was the happy mail...
Jacky. This actually arrived well in advance of the actual day and I got to just admire it for awhile...
Deb, which arrived the day before, but which I saved until my actual birthday to open. And I've already put some of those K&Co embellies to use. So much lovely here!
Melissa, which arrived a day or two after the big day. Those fabric butterflies are so pretty!
Karen - and with her big trip, I can't believe she thought of me and got a card in the mail!
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making my day so special - and for stretching it out over half the month!!!
On the actual day, Jacky posted about an online class... Being Me - 52 weeks of soul-searching and loving myself. It's an art journaling class based on a weekly prompt. Given the serendipity of the timing and the number, I decided for to celebrate being 52 by spending 52 weeks following these prompts and allowing myself time to get messy in my art journal at least once a week - it's a luxury I just haven't given myself the time for! The first week has just been posted, so it's not to late to join in and play along (the art journaling is optional if you aren't into that and just want to check into the loving yourself part!).
