{ First day of winter and my birthday }

I am celebrating my Birthday today and it's first day of winter. It is really cold here in Texas, but the house is nice and toasty. No big plans for my big day, but I would like to go see the Prairie Lights later this evening. I am enjoying my (late) morning coffee while Alex is taking a nap. Here is a photo of me last year (on my birthday), Alex in my belly. Here is a photo of me now! This is from the other night. I wanted my husband to take a photo of us together to show the matching socks, totally by accident.In the last couple of weeks I received Paper Crafts Gourmet. It has a ton of wonderful projects and recipes.Here is one of the cards I created for this special issue. I can't wait to try some of the recipes in the book. I have to share this magazine from Paper Crafts Card Creations: Quick & Easy Volume 2. My little card is featured on the cover. I am so excited. Alex is awake and I have to go feed him lunch. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Hello,
    I really enjoy reading your blog, but don't always have the time to post a comment (yeah, I know how wrong it is... sorry about that)
    I think this is a good time to write and wish you a happy birthday!

  3. Happy Happy! I loved the pics you shared, and the sock story is a good one. Let us see the scrapbook page you create with that one, please. The cookbook had been on my wish list, but you just inspired me to order a copy. It looks like fun whether I ever cook anything from it or now. I didn't know it was full of lots of treasures like this one. Oh, on the cover! Is that like being "on the cover of The Rolling Stone"? I often ask if "famous" card designers that get lots of email and comments ever feel "like a rock star"! Great fun today, thanks! Linda Crowder
