my little brother has a summer birthday. being a september child myself, i am always jealous of summer birthday kids. my stepmom says its actually a disadvantage, since by the time you want to have your birthday party, half of your friends are gone on vacation. but the summer swimming parties you could have, and the sweet summer gifts! for his fourth or fifth birthday we got him a big inflatable tigger, and one year we got him a crab-themed slip and slide. i think it would be worth it.  anyway, since it was his big day a while ago, i made him a birthday card. watercolour crayons are basically my favourite medium – so messy! fantastic.


so now i should probably get down to some real type work… but there are more birthday gifts to be made! what to do…
