birthday = the blues = new + expensive craft

It's my birthday. yay. :(

Lately, I've been preoccupied, or rather obsessed, with make-up. Over the past month I have been subconsciously drawn to make these ridiculous purchases from Urban Decay, Smashbox, and elf.com (I should be getting that package next week) with the imminent approach of the birthday. I've completely ditched crafting on the normal art canvases for crafting on my face. I guess it's an attempt to hold onto youth?



I don't know why I am so resistant to getting older. I mean, seriously, when I look at my parents, in-laws, and all the elders of my family, I think they're all so beautiful and live such wonderful lives. I have a lot to look forward to, right? hah! :D

I highly doubt the make-up will solve anything or miraculously cure my birthday blues, but I better have fun playing with them because make-up costs a lot! :) Better yet, I need to hold onto this truth: "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." Proverbs 31:30

Happy birthday to me! :)

Happy Birthday! Don't be afraid of getting older. It happens to all of us. It's the natural order of things. And I bet you look like you're still 19 anyway. :)

Happy Birthday to you! :)

Btw, I just used your mushroom meadows stamps for the first time this week (that you sent me as a giveaway a few years ago). I am pathetic - it took me that long to get an ink stamp thingy! I LOVE 'em, though. They are really cute!

Happy happy birthday!!!!!!
I will leave you with some quotes from my great grandmother... she is 101 years young this past July.
"Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - it merely moves from their faces into their hearts
the wrinkles are just a bonus."
She is truely beautiful...
