Thank you . . .

for all the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday.  It was a great day with all this happening:

delicious cupcakes from Ann to share with my class last night



Ann made her own ink, just like her Grandma used to do.

I received 2 bottles to play with!

Get ready for it . . . 

birthday sunglasses from Timi & Judy:


These are hysterical. I had so much fun with them yesterday!

There's all kinds of really cute sayings on these with my favorite being:

"Just when you thought you were the center of ATTENTION I showed up."

They got them in Fenton @

Two Sisters.

The girls said they even had Elvis glasses.

Spent the afternoon and evening at

For Keeps Sake Paper Arts & Rubber Stamps

making gift card holders and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms

with my peeps.

Bitty Blossoms

So very excited about my birthday present from Bill:

Lighting bday gift

Doesn't look like much here but it's a long coveted gift.

I think the official name is a photo tent.

It's one of those gizmos that sets up in a big huge square

complete with lights.

I can place projects inside and get really good lighting

and hopefully better photos for my classes and design work.

Doing the happy birthday dance!

Now off to Kansas City with the girls for

Christmas house tours.
