How old am I? A lot of you were close!! {Earwen, you might be right ;D lol!} I am now 15. *starts singing the Taylor Swift song*
Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone!  I see I'm not the only one with a Nov. birthday! So, Happy Birthday to the rest of you!

My grandparents came out and we had pizza for dinner followed by an enormous chocolate cake!! De-lish! And then, the best part, (in Lucy P.'s voice) presents! Here's a list of what I was given:
  • My fav! A field watercolor/oil easel with paint box!! Whoohoo! From France too! Fancy stuff! ;D
  • A new drawing pad Just in time; I was out of paper!!
  • A huge drawing pad I'm talkin' 16.5" x 18.5"!
  • Bamboo goat hair paint brushes The fancy kind you have to hang up to dry!
  • A gift card to Maurices (sp?) Yay! I can get clothes without having to spend my money on them! :P
  • About 8 strings of beads for necklace making I'm really into that right now! Post about it later....
  • The Kingdom of Heaven director's cut! Need I say more??
  • 15 pennies from my lil brother :) 
  • A purse Okay, I am not one to rave about purses(I usually just jam a couple bucks in my pocket when I go shopping) but this one is cute!! It's orange cloth and.... I'll just have to post a picture later! along with my easel :)
  • Beautiful horse folders to put my drawings/paintings in
  • Watercolor paper
  • Eragon's Guide to Alagaesia I'm not a huge fan of the Inheritance Cycle but this has got fantastic illustrations!!!
  • Ink for my calligraphy pens
  • $100 total from my grandparents Saving up for that violin...!
  • ...And the traditional Birthday Socks: purple fuzzy things :)
And that's my Special Day for you;) I'd better get cracking with all those art accessories!
Tally ho! ~Gwyn


  1. 15? I'm 15, too! :D Sounds like you had a grand birthday, Gwyn! That was so sweet of your brother to give you 15 pennies. Even though it wasn't much, it's the thought that counts, right? :)

  2. WOOOHOOO!!!!
    I'M 15, TOO!
    "Cuz when you're fifteen..." =D
    IN my elvish comment I said Happy birthday, my friend! How old are you?" *grins*

  3. Blessings! Have a grand year, kick up lots of jolly larks, and happy birthday!

    I am fifteen too! But I feel insulted by that Taylor Swift song. It's demeaning to my intelligence.

  4. Oh!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Blessings for this new year! You're going to do all kinds of wonderful things and grow tons!!! It's an adventure! How exciting!
