happy birthday to me!

i had an amazing birthday on saturday. first thing in the morning, my boyfriend gave me this beauty:

he is so good. i found it on etsy ages ago and fell in love with it. i even looked it up again a few weeks ago and was heartbroken that it had been sold! it's gigantic (86x100) and mostly hand-sewn. i plan on bringing it to the next meeting because it's 100000x prettier in person.

then later on in the day, i went and checked my mail and found even more goodies! my pretty {little} pouch swap was waiting for me, and i was totally blown away by how amazing it was!!! the super-sweet jen made me this great little wristlet that i used right away! it was filled with totally practical items that i would have ended up putting in there anyway. it was so thoughtful of her! i really love how she went out of her way to make something that was so *me*!

i mean, look how well she pegged me! an order i had just made from superbuzzy also came in the mail that day, with the same fabric she used in it! she really got my taste.
