birthdays all around



Hi! Those of you who wear glasses know there are certain things that look better if you take your glasses off before looking at them. Like christmas lights, which are way prettier and twinklier when viewed with your glasses off. Well, my face is apparently one of those things. Best viewed a little blurry and out of focus. That is my conclusion, anyway, since after a half-hour attempt at self-portraiture, this fuzzy one is my favorite.

But I wanted to pop in and say hellooooooo in celebration of the fact that this little blog of mine turns 1 year old today. And I turn 28 years old today. Twin turns 28 today too. (funny how that happens) 28 seems simultaneously very old and very young. But I think it will be a very very good year.

I get my birthday off work (yippeee!) so I'm going to do whatever I want. Not sure what yet, but that's half the fun.

It is a joy and an honor to be part of this crafty blog community. Thank you to all who visit and comment and motivate me off my lazy rumpus to create a bit of crafty beauty. It has meant so much to me.

All right, off to find me a birthday cake to plant my face in...

[Oh and you probably want to know where I got those awesome earrings. From the lovely Susan's etsy shop, of course. I love them, and I'm not even much of a jewelry person.]

Happiest of birthdays, my Julie!
And much to visit about soon and larks galore ...
Love the picture.
Love you.

oh, yes:
"Can you read, Pooh?" Owl asked a little anxiously. . . . So Owl wrote, and this is what he wrote:
HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY.
Pooh looked on admiringly.
"I'm just saying `A Happy Birthday'," said Owl carelessly.
"It's a nice long one," said Pooh, very much impressed.
"Well, actually, of course, I'm saying `A Very Happy Birthday with Love from Pooh'. Naturally it takes a good deal of pencil to say a long thing like that."

Have a happy!

Village Vegan said...

Happy birthday, Julie! I hope you have a lovely day off work, with lots of nice presents and people and cake :-)

Happy birthday, blog! I've recently discovered your blog and I love it. It's such an inspiration.

As a fellow glasses-wearer, I totally agree with some things looking better with the glasses off...see, that's one of the benefits of having glasses! Non-glasses people don't know how pretty and twinkly slightly blurred chiristmas lights look.

Well, it's happiness all the way around. Congratulations! I hope you have a wonderful day. And Susan's earrings have a way of making you like jewelry because I'm not a huge jewelry person, either.

Hello,

I recently found your blog and find it thoroughly inspirational. Thanks for that, really. Also, happy birthday! I turned 27 in January and have been having quite similar thoughts about feeling both very old and very young. I think these late twenties may be the perfect age. (Though I hope I think that when I'm 30, and 35, and 40...)

Have a good day!

amy h said...

Happy birthday to you, to twin, to the blog! Enjoy 28 -- good age. :)

Chelsea said...

Happy birthday to you both! I hope whatever your doing, that you're having fun.

I'm so sorry to have missed your birthday - but my absence allowed me to read the love of close to 40 other commentors. Oh, how we love Julie! Hope you had a fabulous day. Thanks for that sulu-design mention. By the way, are those new specs? They're adorable.

Bettsi said...

Julie, I am sorry to be so late with good wishes! I hope 28 is a fabulous year. I think you look so pretty and nice. Just the way I imagine you.
