a break for cake

12-13-cake-1

hello to my favorite day of the year! every december 14 i still feel like a six year old (i woke up at 4:45 this morning with a grin) and i hope i always feel that way about it. part of the reason is that my two best friends and two close family members share the day with me. the other reason is that i give myself carte blanche to goof around the whole day. i saved a piece of cake for you, but if this isn't enough to put you in a sugar daze, i have a guest post on stephanie levy's art advent calendar today in which you'll see how i eat my way through the holidays.

so to celebrate i think i'll have a little BIRTHDAY SALE in my doodleshop. for today and tomorrow (monday 12/14 and tuesday 12/15),for any doodleprint you buy, i'll toss in a groovy doodle magnet of your choice. the free shipping offer is still going on, too.

p.s. if you're curious, i'm thirtysomething and this is the last year i can say that :)

It's your birthday! Happy, happy, enjoy every moment of it. I, too, am older than you, but that feeling of being "you at 25" or "you at 35" really does never go away. You're an inspiration to me, so revel in it :-)

Happy Belated Birthday! I love a birthday cake with lots of flowers. Frosting as you can see is my favorite part of the cake. I'm glad there is someone else who enjoys their bday as much as I do. I need surgery down the road and told my doctor it won't be this month with Christmas here, won't be in Feb my bday guess it will be in March. I pass out bday treats to everyone I have contact with on my day. It is fun to see the looks on stranger's faces when I give them a treat. Enjoy! xo
