So here are all the lovely things I have bought. The top two items came in the post today, but the rest is still to be dispatched. Bad Amazon! I'm off work on Monday because of bank holiday, so they won't come till Tuesday at the earliest. Hmph!
Exciting times. Now I need to get my craft on.

However, this does remind me of quite a sad story.
Anyway, here's some nice themed crafts. Enjoy!

So here are my top 5 dream jobs, if you could literally pick anything in the world and be it.
1. Special effects make-up artist.
I had a stint when I was a kid where I thought it would be awesome to be a make-up artist. Like an actual make-up one and not a special effects one. But then I remember watching this documentary on the making of Michael Jackson's Thriller, and loving watching them put the make up on. Can you imagine people watching amazing make-up effects like The Thing or American Werewolf in London, and you being able to say "hey, it was me that did that". Epic. As a lover of horror movies, I can only imagine how cool this job would be now, and I would have loved to have gone to university in America or something and studied this. I would also love to have the mind to know how to turn someone into a zombie, or make it look like their leg was hanging off.
2. Comic book store owner.
This is the geek in me totally coming out, plus I quite like the idea of running my own shop. I image ordering in stock would be the most fun in the world, but I would probably end up buying a lot of it myself.
3. Hayley Williams.
Okay, I know this is more of a person than a job, but I don't care. Dream jobs right? If I had a smary enough brain to write amazing lyrics, I would be very happy. I also enjoy dancing like a mess and dying my hair red, so I think it would be perfect.
4. Magazine editor.
5. Jenny Hart.
How about you? Any dream jobs you would kill to do?

|Me and Donald driving|
|Shoes! Wonder Woman Converse|
|DVDs and Xbox game|
|Beetle Juice dolls and Labyrinth worn toy|
|Nightmare trivia game, hair dye, pin cushion, chocolate|
I had an awesome birthday, so thanks to everyone who was involved in some way and everyone who is going to be out tonight!
So here was the pattern.
So here's mine.
I changed it slightly, as I decided to put them in three separate frames and introduced the love heart in between. I also used a fill stitch I've never used before (which I was quite excited about). I'm really happy with how it turned out, and they now sit proudly on our kitchen window ledge.
I love the Feeling Stitchy stitch alongs! I can't wait for June!

Birthdays are meant to be for you, right? It is your birthday, after all.
So if I were to make the choice to be on the other side of the world, without phone or Internet service, I think that should be perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately, I don't make the big bucks to just up and leave to another country for a couple of days around my birthday, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to.
My love to travel the world doesn't fuel this wish though. It's the fuss that surrounds my birthday that sends me into hermit mode in the month of January.
After Christmas passes, almost a month later I get to celebrate coming into this world. So, after the new year hits, it's on. "You're almost another year older" echos every conversation, with my lingering response of "Really? I didn't know!" never being spoken. A couple days and then weeks go by, making way for the nosiness to come in: "What are you doing for your birthday? Where are you going? Who are you celebrating with? Are you staying home? Are you going out? Are you going out drinking? Where?"
All of that in the emails, and texts, and phone calls from people I didn't talk to since January of the previous year that want to know. Like somehow, this year will be different and they'll actually keep in contact long enough to appear to care.
I know, I know. I sound like a bitter old woman. But I like to keep things simple. No fuss. No craziness. Just a nice meal and some time with my loved ones suits me. A movie or something low-key where it isn't being announced to what feels like the entire world. And no phone calls would be absolutely perfect. But you know that trip to the other side of the world? That would be pretty fantastic, too.
Happy Birthday, Kim! May it be filled with less nosiness and craziness than mine normally is! :]
