    Happy Birthday Matty! May the force be with you. Not sure if that’s Star Wars or Star Trek. I get them confused. :)

    Happy birthday! He is lucky to have a Mommy who makes such yummy cupcakes. Make that, he is generally lucky to have such a yummy Mommy! Lisa, since you are so great with the photos, would you be game to participate in the meme I just posted today about showing your favorite photo in your home?!

    Happy Birthday, Matty! I hope he has a ball time at his 5th Birthday party.

    In case, you are not aware, there is a wonderful book, ” Horray, I’m five today!.” It is written by Tor Freeman.

    Have fun!

    your designs are fresh and inspired. i gasped when i saw the necklace where you said to pick your word of the year. every year on my birthday, a word for the next year is picked. it defines the year. until i saw your jewelry, i had never heard of anyone else doing this.

    my word of nov ’08- nov ’09: strength.
