the celebration continues

The birthday gifts have still been trickling in, and man it's fun to stretch out the celebration like this!

Amy M. sent me some of her extraordinary photo cards. And did you see that photo tag?? That girl oozes innovation. Pretty much everything she does leaves me thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Esther sent this card with a lovely note.

Laurie M. sent me this darling little notepad and gorgeous card, as well as a funny note.

Jen M. sent me a Lindt chocolate bunny and some of her favorite recipes. I just love it that she sent me recipes! I'm always wondering what other people's standard, go-to recipes are. Maybe I want to add them to my rotation, you know? And now I have some of Jen's favorites. Eva is lobbying pretty hard for me to open the bunny.

Heather S. sent me $25 in Fandango bucks! I've never received Fandango bucks before --what fun I will have choosing and seeing a movie -- maybe I'll invite my boys on a date...

Amanda L. sent me this adorable card and a knitting pattern. I had admired this baby hat on her blog (her first project, by the way, the girl's got ambition). Now can I attempt to make my own!

Thank you, friends -- I am just floored by your thoughtfulness and generosity.

I always find Amy's innovations painfully brilliant, but I love it that she's sharing them via good mail.

I'm so glad you have more birthday goodness coming in, people are so thoughtful.

I think it's brilliant that Jen sent you her favorite recipes. I'm sure most of us consider you the source of recipes, not the recipient.

P.S. I forgot to say how generous Heather is! And so nice of Amanda to send you that cute card and knitting pattern.

blogs are so nice because there are now untold sources that inspire those, 'why didn't i think of that?' moments. admittedly, when that used to happen my first reaction was always anxiety and panic, but now i just download pictures and keep them in an inspiration folder. if i only had the ability to do everything i've seen on blogs!

It's enjoyable when birthday wishes keep trickling in. Hopefully the cards will come in use.
