First of all, I’ve been getting emails again on how to subscribe to my blog. If you look up, top right, you’ll see the search box and two icons above it. If you click on the elephant’s butt you’ll be taken to the subscription page. Yes, I have a thing for butts — one of my favorite college time song is by Sir Mix-A-Lot (ha!!). You can also click here. I am starting to feel it, not yet but it’s coming, of the need to update my blog. I like the design just fine but I need to make it more web and user compliant. I whipped this baby up in a few hours cause I was working and all that junk and I want to now dedicate more time to it. Plus, it’s the only way to keep up with my geek skills.
As for the birthday cake… I have this lady friend, Susan, whom I can rely on to ask (silly) questions about Britain, the folks, the culture, etc. She’s my go-to gal basically. I asked her about the cake deal and she said that a lot of times there are food at the party, even a 2-4 p.m. one, and by the time it gets to the cake the kids are full. Another reason would be because they just didn’t have time to eat the cake at the party — too jam packed with activities. Due to the two main reasons parents just got into the habit of putting the cake in the children’s party bags. That seems like a logical answer although it didn’t quite fit one of the last party. M ate ice cream at the end of the party but the cake was in the bag. Susan said she usually serves her cake at the party and assured me that whatever we decide to do for M’s party will be just fine.
Here’s another birthday card that I did. You all better tell me this looks boyish!! I like this the best but I think for a little kid it’s a bit too formal. Whatcha think of the fish? I love this new set, Hooked on You, from WPlus9!! So fun, fun, fun! It’s my friend Kerianne’s first design and I think she did a FABULOUS job!! I love her graphic style, just so clean and solid! I hope she does more in the near future!!
