Wednesday

It's a PARTY!!!

Yesterday I ran to the Post Office to ship out several recent orders and found an envelope in our box addressed to me from my friend Tine in Germany! I couldn't wait to open it..........

BUT when I turned it over to slip my letter opener in look what I found in BIG BOLD LETTERS! So I am now sitting here looking at this envelope, picking it up, turning it over, sitting it back on my desk, picking it up again, holding it in my hands and looking at that BIG BOLD "DO NOT OPEN BEFORE MAY-O4".

Friday I will celebrate my 49th Birthday and I am having a little party starting today. Everyone that attends will receive a party favor. You can even pick out your favor (a small envelope of snippets from my antique/vintage books, papers, etc. or a package of 2 Debbie Overton Designs notecards/envelopes).

To attend and receive your party favor, leave a comment on this post and let me know if you want snippets or notecards. Those attending will receive an email requesting your mailing address so I can send you your party favor.

Remember if you post anonymous I may not have a way of contacting you. Please leave me a clue as to which Debbie, Sara, Jane or John you are or you could leave your email address. (someone at someplace.com)

Until next time......I am working on a special project and gathering the party favors! Hope you can attend!

Debbie

Hey Debbie-Happy Birthday! Hope you get the rain you've been wanting, would make a good birthday gift with the fires-that has to be scary!

Hope you are having a VERY happy birthday, Debbie! And I'm praying that the fire and smoke will be totally rained out!
