happy birthday to meeeeeeeee

Today I turned 30 :: I was worried I would wake up and find I had grown-up but, nope! still as silly as normal *phew*

The lovelies at work yesterday surprised me with a balloon, a mug and a badge...all emblazoned with the magic 30 !



Just look at the lovely crafty things that came my way today.... Guinea Pig tape hand stamped by my fantastic sister
Not pretty but extremely useful...thanks John :-)

This box arrived with the postman this morning from my great friend Katy (her softies are famous, don't cha know!)


I wore my rosette with pride, well my bag did, but how cool is that!!!
not strictly a crafty present but *raaaahhhhh* scary monster!! LOL
and a firm favourite in these parts....chocolate cake, and decole chocolate cake at that !!

Katy, you are truly awesome :-)



Postie also delivered this beauty...I nearly didn't open it because it's so gorgeous, but that thought didn't last long!!!
If it's wrapped with jumbo ric rac then you know it's gonna be a FAB thing inside!!!

This is the card, so pretty, and such neat writing!!
And look what was inside that gorgeous wrapping!! Japanese Cute Heaven. The. Perfect. Birthday. Gift :-) Nia, I love it!! Thanks poppet :-)
John took me to hobbycraft this morning, it's an hour away from here and the shop is quite new so I'd never been before......look at what I got ::



Tomorrow I've booked the day off and plan to put in some serious sewing hours, in between organising the amazing birthday giveaway freebie thing of course!!

Happy Birthday Sarah!
I'm not sure when the age will come when I have to grow up. I'm 31 and still don't consider myself to be an adult. Maybe to be a crafter we need to retain an element of the child we were in order to create such appealing things (?)
You look like you had a fab birthday with lots of goodies - I'm can't wait to see what you make with all these bits tomorrow.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!! Glad you liked your monster (that was Grace's contribution, along with the highly necessary paty poppers)


Hmmmm, your hobbycraft looks to be much better than mine :( I don't they restock mine very often, lol!
Enjoy the rest of the evening (ok, it's bedtime now - so you don't have much left!!)

PARTY poppers - see, once you hit 30 you forget how to spell and everything ;-D

Is that polka dotted felt? Glad you had a happy birthday. My 30s were way better than my 20s, so enjoy!

Happy Birthday!
Looks like you have some super goodies to play with. Don't worry about having to grow up. I'm 40 next year and have not yet felt the need to turn into an adult.....phew!

Clare said...

Happy Birthday to you, and many happy returns :o) I'm glad you had a good day with such lovely gifts (and it's good to hear that you are resisting adulthood! Very sensible, I think.)

Hi, I just heading over to your website to say I'd got the fab car tape I'd ordered when I took the scenic route and came here instead! I'm even more impressed now by the time you took to wrap such a small purchase when it must have been the day before your big 30. Happy (belated) Birthday!! I was also very amused to see that someone in your household has a similar bubblewrap fetish to my own... You left me two to pop though!
