You Made It: Birthday Suprise by Mail


Nikkala of the Crafting Chicks sent me a note this morning about the gift she packaged like this and mailed to her niece. I promise you I will be doing this within the month. If you’ve been around for a while you know how I feel about happy mail. Thanks, Nikkala.


p.s. Tomorrow is a big day for me. I will be turning 32, which isn’t really an important number, but feels big, like I’ll officially be well into my 30s. I am treating myself in two ways (I had plans for a birthday dress but didn’t manage to get one in time).

Treat 1. I am rereading Anne of Green Gables. I just can’t help myself. I’m always in the mood for it this time of year.

Treat 2. I’ll be featuring my next kitchen guest. An all-time favorite I’ve followed for years for her impeccable fashion advice, her elegant but real meal plans and recipes, and oh yes, looking at photos of the cottage she renovated and lets out in Beynac dosn’t hurt either (see more here). Thanks to her, I have my next trip to Paris planned to the minute. I even know what to pack. Now all I need are plane tickets and a couple grandparents who are looking for a some kids to hang out with for a week or two.

Have you seen there is now a prequel to Anne of Green Gables. I read it very nervously but was pleasently surprised. Its called before green gables
