They say it's your birthday

Strawberry ACEO

Yep. Today is my birthday. A big one. I am now the 'new forty', a woman 'of a certain age'. Although a good six months younger than this woman, today we are now the same age. In honor of this milestone in my years (not because I'm fishing for birthday wishes or anything) I decided to have a little give-away. So for everyone that leaves a comment on this post between now and midnight Saturday (2/7/09 EST), I will put all the names in a hat and have my 10 year old daughter draw one name to be the winner of this ACEO. My birthday gift to you.

Happy Birthday Ann. You don't look a day over 39!

I hope you had an excellent birthday celebration. We February babies are a special breed of artists!

(As of the 19th I will have 4 years to "the New 40). LOL

Wishing you all the best, and lots of fun art supplies.

I love the drawing! I'm 27 years your senior and yet I like the age I am too. Age is just a number. You are just getting going although you may not feel it. Living is good. Happy Birthday anyway!
