I have officially hit my heavy birthday time of the year. I always kind of wish it wasn’t at the same time that I was trying to get all of my Christmas stuff done, but since my birthday is at this time of year I don’t complain too much. This year I have at least tried to make some cards ahead of time so that I am not quite so stressed over the next couple of weeks.
There are holes in my memory because of the MS. It makes it a challenge when I make birthday cards for certain people because I can sometimes only remember one thing about them if that. Then again sometimes that makes it a bit easier because there are other people it feels that I could make a hundred cards for because I think of all sorts of things about them when it is time to make them a birthday card.
Oh my, the birthday rush in coming soon! I was printing out my November calendar and realized that I had already flubbed getting some anniversary cards in the mail soon enough. There are ten birthdays this month alone and it only gets crazier next month.
I feel like I have to admit that I have this feeling at the end of every major season of disappointment in myself at the seasonal things that I didn’t use on cards. The remaining Halloween items that didn’t quite make it on to cards this time around. I know that they will be used in the future, that it just wasn’t their time quite yet, and it isn’t something that I can ‘push’. I just still feel like I should have made more and tried a bit harder. read more
I was supposed to post this card yesterday in honor of my eldest niece turning 17. You want to know what, this auntie was doing a bit of pouting instead. Don’t get me wrong, she has grown into an amazing woman. One that I am super proud to know and love and spend time with and I can’t say enough wonderful things about… However, she will always be my little Tinkerbell, my princess, the baby that I waited in a parking lot to meet, the little girl that played in my skirts, and I would buy Hot Cocoa bubble bath for so she would take a bath. read more
