Happy Birthday! I celebrated the April & May birthdays with my running group and got a stack of cards from everyone.
My birthday is on Mother’s Day this year. I’ve requested a box of chocolate from my family.
I think there are close to 20 women in our running group and they/we celebrate every possible occasion. Lots of wine and coffee, although I don’t drink either. At our last birthday celebration back in March we celebrated 5 birthdays with everyone giving everyone gifts. It was becoming a little much so they decided to back off the gifts and just give cards. All my cards were very funny. I had the idea to paint little birthday cards for my running buddies as their birthdays come up. Here’s my first watercolor cupcake. I did a few in oils last year, but holy cow I love the simplicity of watercolors. I have quickly learned that simplicity is key. I tried one other cupcake before this and ended up ripping it to pieces. I was trying to paint like I would with oils building layers and it was an absolute mess. Plus I only have a few colors so I’m really limited. I love it.
