They Say It's My Birthday
My birthday is today. I am 27. I spent the last week preparing for my birthday party and obsessively reading Katie Sokoler's Blog to avoid thinking about all the insanity which comes with being one year older. I was initially enamored of the idea of distributing Living In A Green Room personalized drawings as party favours, but due to Colour Me Katie, I decided I would ALSO love to have huge colourful flowers all over the walls.
This is why there have been scarce blog posts the last few days. I basically looked like this:
Notice the furrowed brow and kind of hostile, focused expression. I was intense. And a bit scary. I also roped my sister into cutting out many many green leaves through a combination of emotional blackmail and outright pleading.
Here are decorations in their final incarnations, including take-home drawings of the party guests...
|Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing!!|
|Happy Bunny stretching on the light switch|
|Counting Flowers on The Wall|
|First day of drawing party favours.|
|My sister's red velvet cupcake contribution. THEY WERE AMAZING!|
|... and my friends made cupcakes that they decorated individually. The one with the 'A' is mine.|
|Flowers all around our majestic dog friend.|
|After all the guests were gone, we took this. So now you can all see that our hair actually does look the way I draw it for you guys.|
