Happy Birthday to Me

Yes, that's right.  It's my B-day today.  I thought that in honor of the day of my birth, I'd have some fun here on the ole blog.  Wanna play a game with me?  It's called, "Guess how old I'm going to be based on what I want for my birthday this year."

Are you ready?

OK, here we go:

My very own Paper Dolls.  I'm not sharing them with Little Miss.  Unless she plays REALLY nice with them.  They will live in my new sewing studio.


And they will love it in there.




They're going to need more outfits too.


I'm going to need some comfy slippers to craft in as my feet are constantly cold.  I'm also going to need the ability to crochet because these tootsies are only a pattern and I can't crochet for the life of me.

Don't they look ridiculously comfy?

A little retro kitsch for my new kitchen.  I haven't decided what color it's going to be (right now it's very neutral and is going to need some personality), but these would punch up the bland factor in no time flat.

Buttons.  A big ole pile of em.

The more vintage and bright, the better.


Some artwork to inspire me towards my Indie Biz pursuits.

Someday I'd like a whole wall filled with lovely artwork that whispers (or yells) YOU CAN DO THIS!



Some things are just so cute and simple.

For $3, I may just have to get this little set of paper tools for myself.


 One or ALL prints from this lovely photographer.


 A little catchall bowl for pins, or threads, or keys or earrings, or something.

Anything.


 A little friend to sit on my shelf.

No particular reason why.


A custom portrait of my new house

FOR my new house.


 A lovely locket to hold the pictures of my sweet children close to my heart.


Another little something unexpected.

Not sure where this one would live exactly, but I'm sure I could find the perfect spot for it.


Another little stuffie.

Once again, these are gifts for ME.  No kids allowed.

Especially Kee-ku.  Far too much drooling.


 And finally, a crown to wear on my special day.

With a promise from EVERYONE that they couldn't make fun of me for wearing a crown.


C'mon.  Can I?

For just one day a year?

Thanks, Ujjwal! I will likely get none of these things, but I'm sure I will still have a most lovely birthday. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May your life be filled with joy and happiness! I hope you can get everything you want from that list. It's really cute and it doesn't matter how old you are but how old you feel! :-) ENJOY your birthday!

Thanks, Anzouya! I think I'm always going to be young at heart. I like it that way. Your comment made me smile. :)

Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoy your day! Your list is so fun and happy! I realized after a while that I officially am a 'grown-up,' and it is OK to do/enjoy/be the things I want to--regardless of age.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! you should wear that crown every day :D

Sammy April 29, 2010 at 8:11 AM  

Happy Birthday Friend. I think the crown is perfect, slightly more refined than some ones I remember. But there are no pendant necklaces up there. Oh well. Celebrate well, live life wholly and there will be little cause for regret.

Skooks April 29, 2010 at 11:56 AM

Shel April 29, 2010 at 2:08 PM  

Happy Birthday! I love all those things...especially the locket and the kitchen containers! Hope you have a fantabulous day. Love you!

Allison April 29, 2010 at 4:43 PM  

Weeel, seeing as I know how old you are, let's just skip that part 'cause it would be cheating:)
I love your list as well, and I'm happy that you will always be young at heart.

Happy Happy Birthday, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Skooks April 30, 2010 at 4:46 AM  

I had such a great day. Thanks everyone for all your lovely words. :)

Amber April 30, 2010 at 9:24 PM  

Aw, I hope you had a great birthday yesterday! :)

Hi! I just came across your blog while looking through the Leila and Ben flicr group. I wanted to know if you've gotten around to makine those crochet mary jane's? They are to die for, but I don't crochet myself. I wanted to hear your feedback because maybe they're worth learning how to crochet for...

Skooks October 6, 2010 at 3:30 PM  

Hey Laura!

I searched around a bit for your email so I could send you a response . . . hope you find your way back here to see that I was paying attention to your question. :)

I have not made the crochet mary janes . . . though I DID point their pattern out to a crochet-ing friend of mine with some OVERLY HEAVY hinting that I thought they were SO CUTE and OH HOW I WISH I COULD CROCHET . . .

So far, no dice. But it could still happen.

I may have to learn how to crochet just for this project because the weather is getting colder around here and my tootsies have been beyond frigid lately because I am not much of a sock girl.

If you have the inclination I say learn it (from what I hear it's not terribly hard to learn - though obviously I, as of yet, have not learned myself).

And then you can come back and tell me how it went. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again sometime.

Post a Comment

Thanks for letting me know you stopped by. Your words mean a lot to me, so keep 'em coming!

If you've got a question that you want answered please leave me your email address in the comment, or be sure to enable your email on your profile page so I can find you.

I'm always up for a good crafting discussion, so let 'er rip! :)
