Birthday! Birthday! Birthday!

This year, I'm going to share my birthday with you guys. My birthday is on July 12 and I am super excited this year.

Don't ever let anyone tell you not to be excited about your birthday! It's a day to celebrate and you have the right to do whatever you want with that day.

This year, I'm going to do a couple things for my Simplicity Embellished readers to celebrate.

1. First, I'm going to list 5 of my favorite posts I've written and published here on Simplicity Embellished. A question I often get in my letters is "What is your favorite post?" and now, I'm telling you! Let me know if any are your favorites too!

2. I am going to have a marathon letter-writing day on the morning of my birthday BUT there's a catch! If you'd like an extra special letter from me written to you on my birthday, please leave your name and address in the comments. If you don't want to leave your address down below, send me an email using the link on the left.

So, with that said, here are 5 of my favorite posts:

My Favorite Earrings

Diamine Ink in All Kinds of Colors

How to Hollow Out a Book

My Recipe for Sugar Plums

Why I Write Letters

And a bonus: Why You Sometimes Never Hear Back From a Pen Pal

What do I want for my birthday? Well, you can see some of the things I'm lusting after at my Amazon wishlist and my Jetpens wishlist. I *LOVE* to see people's wishlists--if you have one, share it with me! It's how I find new things I want! ;)

So with all that said, I hope to write some of you letters on my birthday!

Cheers!
