Tomorrow is the Day

My FAVORITE Day!! Is tomorrow.
Every other day of the year we have obligations and dates and meeting and work and commitments. Even on holidays we're more likely to be running around trying to complete dinner and cleaning up than relaxing.
Well not tomorrow.
I learned a long time ago to reserve my birthday with no plans. Nowhere I have to go, nothing I have to do. That way it leaves the whole day open for what I want to do. If I want to sleep in until noon - fine. If I want to wake up and jog around the neighborhood with Bach - fine. If I choose to go into work - great! If it's a nice day for the beach - superfab. So basically it's the only day of the year where I can pretend it's all about me and do exactly what I want to when I want to.
This morning I kicked the early celebration off with some early-morning painting. (See my teeny-tiny painting?) My sister had given me an itty-bitty art kit for Easter so today I broke it out and whipped up some some coffee for my new favorite mug. Unfortunately, that's about all the celebrating I'll get to do since I have a dentist appointment this afternoon and then I get the pleasure of working at my night job until very late tonight.

But enough about me, let's get back to my favorites (that you can buy for me):
I have found some amazing card shops lately. And as silly as it is for me to buy cards (I love making hand made cards) I just get blown away by some of these designs!
Take ChristopherandTia, for instance:

These neon recipe cards and boxes are what any kitchen needs! Crickets!!
There's also a new discovery: VagrantPoodle!

These cute fish cards would be perfect for my sea-worthy family! And they have more! Owls and kitties and octopuses (octopi?)
My final card choice is a collection from YeeHaw:
These Spring Tree mini prints are eye-catching and fun! 8 little cards with 8 little envelopes!
I'm card-crazy.

Happy birthday! Good idea to leave it free! I always end up working late on mine for some reason.

Happy Birthday! That little painting is so cute. I hate doing things for my birthday.

Those trees are awesome. I love them!
