Another year older

And I'm pretty sure, deeper in debt one way or another.

This Thursday I get a year older. Normally, not worth mentioning, but this year, I'm going to do something on my birthday that I haven't done in years (and no, not the vet visit for the dog I accidentally scheduled before I remember what day it was and now don't want to cancel because how lame of a reason is that, right?).

I'm going to meet an author. Crafty Mama Abby Pecoriello is signing books at noon this Thurday (if you're local) at Crafty Planet. It seemed like a really good reason to skip work and go see some of my favorite people. I also promised a friend that I would make her a pig, so I need to get some fabric.

Last author I met was Anne Rice (I know, how cool is that). Did you know she loves Tab. I worry about her health.

Seriously though if you're in the area, and you haven't ever been to Crafty Planet, and you are even a little bit crafty, you should go. Trish and Matt are the best. I have never felt so welcomed at a store, and their selection of fabric makes makes me happy every time I see it. Also, if you haven't been to their new location on Johnson, make the trek.

That's really great, Amelia. I'm sure she'll appreciate it. I talked to Abby a couple times last year and I know her book was totally a labor of love and that she spent more money on supplies to nail down the project instructions than she made on the book. (And I worry that if we (The Rookie Moms) have book events, no one will show up. We have one coming up in San Jose... wish us luck!)

Happy Birthday (in advance I guess). With the temperature here pushing the 100-degree mark for the third or fourth day in a row, I'd go for a trip to Minnesota for just about any reason. If it weren't for those pesky things like work. Oh, and an incredible shortness of funds... *sigh* Guess I'll suck it up for another day.

Happy birthday! Mine was just 2 weeks ago. I'm intrigued about these pigs you mention.

Thanks for the comment on my post!
