Although my actual birthday isn’t til Sunday, let’s get this party started, right? This morning I woke up to the sweetest thing ever. It wasn’t just for me, though. Everybody got a little treat. Lara decided to make us all breakfast today. πŸ™‚ She made toast for her, her daddy, her little sister and then she brought me my coffee and toast in bed! My alarm was about to go off in 3 minutes, but having coffee brought to you while you’re still warm and snuggled in your bed is a treat I could get used too! πŸ™‚


I mean, seriously….who could ask for more?

Ok, so I’ve been hinting at all the things I’ve been doing to keep myself so busy….and it’s all for my awesome customers! Everything I have made in the last 2 weeks is packed up in the most awesome grab bag ever!


Now, I may be a tad partial, but that’s only because I have put my absolute BEST into this thing! I don’t want anyone to be disappointed! πŸ™‚ You can pick it up HERE. It will only be available through Sunday, so don’t miss out! After that, it will go on sale, piecemeal and you will be oh so sad that you didn’t pick it up. πŸ™‚ And here’s a bit of sneaky hint: there are at least TWO full paper packs…that’s all I’m gonna say, though. That’s only 23 pieces, though. I wonder what the other 134 are!?!?!? And seriously, it’s 5 bucks…FIVE BUCKS!! That’s a steal! πŸ™‚

And not only do I have the grab bag, but I have a TON of coupons and GC’s from some pretty fabulous designers! These ladies have graciously donated prizes to help me celebrate!
