Andrew and I don't celebrate most holidays. Ok, that's not true. We don't celebrate *any* holidays ... except for the ones we make up ourselves. Today is one of those days, the email-versary, commemorating our first email.
Normally we only give presents on birthdays and *the* anniversary. Email-versaries (and the like) are a nice dinner out and a bottle of wine. But occasionally, one of us will sneak a load of presents home without the other knowing. This time I got the big surprise!
This bird fabric is actually a queen sized throw from Urban Outfitters. Andrew calculated the cost per yard and realized it was about the same or cheaper than
buying me fabric. It's the coolest fucking fabric, ever. I fell asleep dreaming about the craft projects I will do with it.
My pile of presents include two super-neat notebooks from Urban Outfitters. This owl one is beautiful. The swirly stampy bits remind me of what I did with my blog design. I was swooning when I saw this! The other is a blue and brown bird print that is very cool, too.
The book, Colour Me, Pictoplasma
, (say it out loud, it's fun) is from the AIA bookstore
, where all-things-wonderful can be found. It is a pseudo coloring and activity book full of line drawings from super cool character artists. It will be a great source of inspiration, like Happy Kitty Bunny Pony. He also found the coolest pencils made from Chinese newspapers there. They will be very useful for sketching my stuffie parts in my new notebooks.
To top it all off, there is a 2007 Edward Gorey page-a-day calendar and a clear plastic two-sided storage bin for all my little goodies. I feel so spoiled. Half of me is overwhelmed by how perfect all the gifts are, and the other half is jumping around like a five year old, "Yay for me!." I fell asleep with the card on my bedside table last night (he surprised me at midnight - we usually can't wait any longer than that), and I had to stop myself from taking all my stuff to work. Now I have the whole weekend to play.
