Happy Birthday to me!

Received the nicest surprise today - my personalized bookmark from the EMS Cross Stitch Board Exchange. Isn't it beautiful?

I love to participate in these exchanges. I've made new friends from all over the world.

Yes, it is my Birthday, and I'm proud to be here. My life has been blessed, and I like to use my birthday as a very special time to thank the Lord for his many blessings: My beloved DH (and in 9 days, we'll celebrate the 36th anniversary of our first date, and in June, our 35th wedding anniversary), my children, my wonderful grandchildren, all of my family, and all of my friends, both in RL and virtual. Praise God for you all!

My DH is taking me to dinner this evening - and I'll have my once a year treat of Coca-Cola Cake with vanilla bean ice cream from Cracker Barrel. I promise I'll savor every morsel!

In other news, I've been thinking about publishing some tutorials, so I'll be looking for a site to do that on - cost is definately a factor. But I do love to create, and I love to teach - so I'll work on it and publish here when it's ready. I've already been taking photos and writing instructions for the first one - a covered Altoid box.
