hoorah hoorah o yes. o yes.
t'is indeed my birthday tomorrow, (making today my birthday eve...!) which is naturally extremely exciting, hence the eagerness to show off these lovely little wooden happy birthday stickers i came across in hawkins bazaar. fabulous indeed!
on friday night james, ben and i had a 3-in-1 birthday bash at juno in shoreditch and it was super lovely to see everybody's friends all together again. i got each of us a cupcake and a different coloured candle to match instead of having to lug a whole birthday cake up there, and with that in mind, below is the card i made for the two boys: (one of them had a blue one, the other had green, and this matched with the ribbon on their gifts...) :o)
i bought james Rob Ryan's new book "this is for you" and fell so much in love with it that i had to buy myself a copy too...! ive been wanting to post pictures of it ever since i bought it about a month ago, but had to wait until james had recieved his. so finally... here we are!
all the shapes, the words and the pictures are cut out of paper. its the most beutiful intricate thing ever! i love it!
and the story is so sweet. all about a boy trying to uderstand what love is and searching for his someone to love. :o)
Rob Ryan's blog is one that i have been following for a while, its cram packed with his beautiful papercuts, plus, his printed tiles are lovely and you can pick them up from his etsy shop. fabulous.
