a day older

Well, yesterday I was my 25th birthday, which was a nice surprise! I always forget about my birthday, what with Christmas and New Year, and this year I seem to have been especially busy, so it kind of crept up on me.

I went on nice (very windy) walk with some of my friends and family then to the pub for lunch (and sticky toffee pudding for pud, happy birthday to me!) 

I feel happy to be 25. I don't normally feel much different after my birthday, not taller or older or wiser, but this year I feel quite good. A quarter of a century, that's a long time to be alive! And I feel like I'm at a good place in my life; lots behind (oh how time flies!) but lots to look forward to too. Lots.

Anyway, this is a book I made on Friday. A bit of an experiment to see if I could make a hard back book with pages that fold out. The spine ended up a bit loose and floppy as I couldn't glue it (because of the fold out bits) but it seemed to work ok...




Something to develop I think...

Happy HAPPY birthday for yesterday!! It sounds like you had a lovely day. I agree...25 certainly seems to be a birthday to celebrate and enjoy. A milestone of sorts. I'm only a few months off turning 25 and I'm looking forward to it :)

And congrats on your new book design. It's great! x.

I'm a little late, but I hope you enjoyed your birthday and have a great year!

Windy walks are the only kind of walks it's possible to go in here. The winter has really struck us. That's good.

HB, Sarah! A new book...the perfect birthday activity. And with all our common interests, it turns out that we're both Capricorns.

Yay happy birthday Sarah, sorry I'm late. I loved turning 25, I felt like a proper grown up, new beginnings and a little bit of wisdom too. I have a good feeling about this year. xx

Sorry I'm late - happyhappy Birthday, Sarah! 25, that's something. Quarter of a century. Looking at your artwork, I bet you'll be a well settled artist by the end of the second quarter!
