You Say It's Your Birthday!

Today is my birthday! Woo hoo! I was already spoiled first thing this morning by my daughter who made me three flower paintings. I can't wait to put them up in my office. I love when my kids make me things. And there will be Chinese food for dinner and other treats, I'm sure. I love birthdays. :) Random useless information: The Mars rover Curiosity landed on Mars a year ago today.

The last week has been busy, busy, busy! Whew! I'm tired just typing it. My boss has been out of the country and I've taken on some of her job responsibilities (which has made me very thankful I don't have her job all the time - Ha!) Always good to learn to appreciate your current job, right?!  Anyway, even though I haven't been posting (and I may or may not have pouted for a day or two over not making it to the next round in the contest) I have been painting. It's only been about 15 minutes a day but that's more than I ever did a year ago! And I can see how the days I don't paint or draw really effect my mood. 

 This little girl was just adorable and needed to be illustrated. She reminded me so much of my sister, Felicia, who is 10 years younger than me. Felicia was always amazing us with her put-together outfits at such a young age!



I also decided that gold tutu needed some bling so here it is with some gold foil glitter! (iPhone photo) 


I need to get back to work but what is your favorite thing to do on your birthday?
