As some of you know, Friday was my birthday. It was a big one- I turned 40- ack! But it was a great day, and I got so many nice things (more on that below).
Every year on my birthday, I do a piece of art. To see past pieces, follow the links in this post. Here is my piece for this year. Since it was a momentous birthday, I wanted to do something that addressed that. I split the piece into "Things I'm Proud that I've Accomplished in My Life" on the left side and "Things I Still Need to Work On" on the right side.
The left side basically represents my children. I've accomplished many things in my life, but I'm most proud of my children.
And the right side represents my marriage and my spiritual journey, both things I still need to work on. I also added the dotted lines from myself to each child, because I need to work on being the best mother I can be as well. You can also see the 40 candles I added for my birthday!
I love this piece and am so happy with the way it turned out!
And now onto the gifts I got! I got so many wonderful things this year from my family! All which make my vintage-loving heart smile really big! But I got one big present that I'm still giddy over, and that has a really fun story to go along with it. However, I still haven't had a chance to shoot photos of everything, so I'm going to be a meanie and just leave you a hint...
I'm sure some of you will be able to guess what this big present was! I'll share more soon....!
