Happy Birthday to Me!

Hey Everyone! It’s my birthday!

Birthday Decorations

You may remember last year when I did a 20 in 20 giveaway–I painted a small gouache painting every week day in June leading up to my birthday.

Travel and projects got in the way of me doing something similar this year, and I missed the fun and fanfare. So this morning I was sitting around after enjoying my lazy morning of drinking coffee, eating a big bowl of blueberries and opening my present (I got a Sonicare tooth brush: score!), and I thought, I should do *something* on my blog. But what? Then I remembered the fun I had with the collaborative snowflake blog post I did in December, and an idea was born!

If you have a little time today, I’d love for you to draw something birthday related and send it on over to me. It can be a simple scribble or doodle of the words “Happy Birthday” or something birthday related. Maybe balloons, cake, party favors? It’s up to you! The only rule is that you yourself created it. If you want to share something you’ve made in the past that is birthday themed, that would be awesome too!

Photograph or scan your creation, and make sure it’s at least 640 pixels wide. Send it to me: aisforanika (at) gmail (dot) com

Also be sure to send me links to your website, blog, twitter page, or whatever else you want included with your image.

I want to write up the post tomorrow, so it’s not too far from my actual birthday. I realize that’s a quick turnaround, and if it seems like too big a task, don’t over think it! Make something quick, or repurpose something you’ve already done! I want this to be a fast, fun thing that you can participate in if you are so inclined. :)

I am planning to create the post later in the day or evening (Eastern Time) tomorrow, so that does give you a little time to make something. I hope you will consider sending something in!

I think that’s about it. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. Looking forward to see what you submit!
