Happy birthday to you ...

Today is my only sibling's birthday!  I won't tell you her age, but you can feel free to go ahead and give her a birthday shout-out.

Here's what I sent her to help celebrate not only her birthday but the fast-approaching season of Autumn.  Best part is that she can display it for years to come.  Not wanting to go with the traditional orange pumpkin, here's what I came up with.

I also made this heart wreath, which she can display year round.

If you know anything about me, you know that I am extremely organized and know where everything is at any given moment.  Well DANG ... somewhere around here is a letter that I wrote to my mother when she was still in the hospital after delivering my sister.  It's so sweet - written by an eight-year old who was oh-so excited to have a new sister.

Happy birthday, Dodie!!!!!


  1. It is still so exciting to have a sister, she is going to love these presents.

  2. Very nice and I'm sure Dodie was pleased. Even as a child, you were a really nice person -- to write a letter about your new sister. Sweet.

  3. Hey! Still waiting for that letter!
