oh happy day

as i celebrate my 35th birthday (i am now half way to 70 anthony reminds me) i am reminded of how lucky i am to be surrounded by loving friends, family, neighbors and all of my new friends at my new job.

i plan to spend the day catching up on my knitting and laying about the house with the boys. unfortunately only a week to go before my debut at the craft fair. i must get hopping. but for now i want to share my new treasures starting with my new love.

i know i am not there yet but i would someday like to equate my love of handbags to sjp’s character in sex in the city’s love of shoes.

in addition to the worlds most fantastic hand bag i now have the audrey hepburns way of life- and to quote her

“success is like reaching an important birthday and finding out you’re exactly the same. all i feel is responsibility to live up to it. and even, with luck, survive it.”

amy sedaris' new book "i like you"

is perfect for me & those of us who need the helpful advice of- if you know you are going to be drinking, make sure to first organize your wallet so you don’t accidentally pay the cabbie too much money-

combined with such great recipes as “the heaviest cheese ball”

i like you too amy.

the impatient patchworker is a fantastic book which only features fabric from my favorite designer rowan’s kaffe fassett. bold, beautiful fabric combined to make quick projects for those of us who need to have instant gratification. i plan on making most if not all of the 20 projects in the book. it comes complete with patterns and where to find the resources used through out the book.

I could give you all sorts of excuses about how I was out of town, got a new laptop, been working 14 hours a day and was briefly abducted by aliens, and while they may all be true it doesn't make up for the fact that I forgot you birthday.

I suck. I am a bad friend. With that being said, happy belated birthday! It looks like things are going well so congrats on that too!

One more thing...I did get a new laptop...and now can't find your email in any contact list. Oops.

Anyway, happy (belated) b-day!!!
