My dad when he turned 40, started counting backwards at each of his birthdays.. He wasn’t what I’d call a vain man either, but for some reason if you asked him his age, he’d always tell you what his age was by subtracting his age from the number 40.. He didn’t make it to be 80 years old so that he could say he was 0, but it just reminds me how young we all really are and at 56 this year, I really don’t feel like I am 56.
Today, I’ll just reflect and remember that my life has been good, I’m lucky to be married to a wonderful man who has put up with me for 32 years now and that’s even longer than my own parents were married for. I have my family and Franks family, and I’ve made some amazing friends here just by blogging. What else could I ask for? Not much… but today I have a few things for you…
Last year at this time, I had a giveaway offered by DJ Inkers for ya’ll, they gave away an amazing cd of their artwork and this year they are doing it again with their Holidays Around The World CD.. It’s an oldie, but a goodie..
You don’t have to do anything but signup for their newsletter or Like their Facebook page to enter the giveaway…
Just for fun, I’ve made up this mugrug pattern for you to download freely and enjoy to see the wonderful artwork that DJ Inkers creates, This kangaroo mugrug is from the Australian pack in the Holidays Around The World CD.
Isn’t that just the cutest, and even better, DJ Inkers is starting their annual 12 Holly Daze Annual Sale tomorrow December 1 to December 12, 2016. They always have some great freebees during this time and some awesome sales.
