Paul and I, Turtle Rock Wyoming, September 2004
It's my 'little' brother's birthday today; except he's not so little. The days of me towering over him are long over. He's one quarter centenarian on this day. I have a bit of an obsession with those folks who are able to spend 100+ years on this planet... so I like to think of birthdays relative to this. I made Paul a blanket by serging two pieces of fleece together. It's white on one side and has a Boston Red Sox print on the other; perfect for a chill-y fall game at Fenway. Then I got him a fantastically silly card by Pinecone+Chickadee. I bought the card at a local craft show called Twist, but you can buy cards and other neat stuff from their Etsy shop. I wanted to post a picture of the card here, but I've already given it to my brother and Pinecone+Chickadee's shop doesn't currently have this one in stock. It was a florescent orange and electric blue print of toadstools and a funny little snail with a mustache. It's amazing.
I'm still working on the NUTS piñata and I promise that I'll be posting photos with instructions on how to make your own next week. If I remember to, I'll try and snap some shots of the thing being busted open too! Enjoy your Thursday!
