My birthday is tomorrow, which kind of blows my mind! I actually sort of forgot it was so close, until last week at Disneyland when a very nice cast member asked me when my birthday was. To my surprise, I ended up with a birthday pin and a phone call from Goofy. So it's time for my yearly dreamed-up birthday party inspiration board. I don't remember the last time I had an actual birthday party, with invitations and people coming over, but I like creating these imaginary celebrations. Of course I do get fireworks, which I'm not particularly crazy over, but as I always hear whenever I tell people my birth date, not many people get fireworks on their birthdays! The sea foamy and gold palette was inspired by a photo by Jose Villa & Enjoy.
I would love to have Emily Martin's signed book and print set, and I'm still dreaming of an Instax Mini. No wish list of mine would be complete without something from Giant Dwarf! I have wanted something by Danny Brito for years, and I especially love his cameo brooches because there are so many of his wonderful illustrations to choose from.
My real birthday present was a slightly early one: the iPhone I got on Sunday! It's so fancy, I can barely believe I actually have one. Now I'm on the lookout for a nice case for it. I think this one is so cute! There are so many choices, I don't know how I'm going to decide on one.
For those of you in the States, I hope you have a great Independence Day, and for my friends outside the US, have fun on my birthday, hehe!
