I did it. It took a little while, but I transferred the photos from iPad to MacBook. Here goes: The beautiful box. I still have the paper. Heck, I still have the box!
See? The order is orderly. It takes longer but it's worth the moments. Imagine my surprise to see "surprise" before my eyes. Talk about being surprised!
My party hat. See the veil? Tres chick, yes?
One for JC. He acts like he owns Sherwood Forest, so why not? It's like getting a feather for his cap. Groan.
For Alex. I'd invite him.
The tiara is mine too! I just replaced the stylish hat. I wore it. I took a photo and sent it to Erin. Myrna can wear my yellow hat with the veil, but she has to give it back.
Ta-da! You couldn't wipe the grin off my face with a blow torch, if you tried. Skittle flowers! Someone caught a rainbow just for me!
Oh, scat! It was Poppy, the cat!
Oh, my. To me. :)
I don't know why but I turned the box upside down. I do like color. Isn't this picture-perfect tense?
Wow. Paper. I like paper. I like paper and colors. And stickers. And I have wanderlust. I lust in my heart to wanter some more before I become root bound.
See what it says? MIX and MATCH! I denied myself the pleasure until I posted my birthday-in-a-box photos. It didn't seem fair to use my gifts before I straightened out the mess I made. Thank you, Anna, for making me mind my Ps and Qs.
Okay, I eventually forgave myself, and used one envelope. I mean, how could I not? Resistance was futile.
I sat the box on its side for this shot. Remember, I did all this in bed. Sunshine! Light in a box. Delightful. I hope I can do something half as wonderful for someone.
Whimsey counts. Thank you, Anna. I like bubbles, and ducks, and fairy wings. I like dreams and I like you. If I had a magic wand or two, I would give you one.
Oui! I like labels. Now I have enough to last a while. They never go out of style.
You'll never guess what's inside. I'll show you later. I wear it when I write long letters. So many beautiful colors!
Jacks! I have to look up how they got their name, but I was the Jacks champ in the Curtis Community. I played until I was a senior in high school. Oh, how I loved that red ball and those shiny spinning jacks. My sister and I used to spin ten at once. Little things were so much fun back then. Did you play jacks? Did you bump? *sigh* There's more, but I have to make dinner. Eighteen photos and I'm not done. See all that goodness yet to come?
