My Birthday Turned Into a GREAT Mail Day!

As usual my Birthday had left me feeling a little low. I always have this deep down feeling that my birthday should be an extraordinary, special day. I always end up feeling a little down towards the end of the day because nothing too special ever happens.


I was contemplating buying my own cake on the way home. However, the ladies in the office and the administration at work got me a delicious vanilla strawberry cake! That started to make me feel better.


Then I decided before going home I could use a little retail therapy... I stopped into Chapters and bought some books. I bought the first three books in the Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan. I also finally spotted issue 184 of Cross Stitcher (from the UK) it has a Michael Powell design in it! You all know I adore Michael Powell! So I left Chapters 50.00 poorer.



Now for today's mail....

In this picture is my purchased magazine... so that's not really part of the mail day but there it is anyhow! The book, Subversive Cross Stitch... Thank you StephanieC!!!! Its just hilarious... if bad language offends you... don't bother to crack the cover. I was just laughing my head off! The cat card and gorgeous scissor fob are from Carol, here's a closeup...

I just love it! Thank you Carol I have to go buy a pair of scissors for it!

Stephanie and Carol thank you so much for making my day special!!!
