A Valentine Birthday Post

My birthday was last Sunday. I am a Valentine Birthday girl. This is one of the reasons I love hearts so much. The celebration started Friday before and continued all the way to this past Friday. I love when you can celebrate that long. I know that most folks grumble about getting older but I do not. I feel extremely blessed to find myself lucky enough to have another birthday. 21 extra birthday’s to be exact. I am so thrilled Irene said yes to organ donation. Thank you just does not seem to be enough.

 

First thing I did is cut my hair off.

For today’s creativity I will show you what folks gave me and the cards they made.  I love my friends and family.

 

First off is my Hubby’s gift to me. He sent me flowers the day I was having an open house craft day. They arrived just in time for folks to get here.

Flowers from my Wonderful Husband Tim

Then he made sure my best friend could pick up the CAKE!! This is from the CocoBean in Hammond, Louisiana!!  To DIE for. I think he needs to put how to make one of these on his blog, Don’t you think?
