A Birthday + Friends + Pinterest = A SURPRISE or Two…

Well, my other posts will have to wait… I have an upcoming plate that I personalized with Sharpies and a fiesta surprise party I gave. But that will be later because now I must tell of the surprise party given for MY birthday.

Since a surprise party was brewing, a theme had to be devised. And what a theme! My favorite pass time – Pinterest!

IMG_6982I entered the restaurant, and I saw 11350549_10207178359203528_2219307852944604043_nred balloons and a group of my friends wearing RED. All had Pinterest name tags with their use [or no use – now how could that be??!!??]. IMG_6985Well, since I love all of Pinterest, what more could I say than “Everything” and 11 K-the number of postings I thought I had [in actuality I  have 12 K].  (Yes, please follow me –  https://www.pinterest.com/caro1inagir1/  )

I received the coolest apron to wear. And of course with 11114024_10207178359443534_3207556444356567154_na Pinterest party you have to have a craft and craft we did. Glass ornaments were decorated with Sharpies to commemorate the day. I will be hanging them in IMG_6987my new studio – maybe along the staircase railing.

I do love my Pinterest! And I do love my friends. 11059611_10207178361083575_7107099556802422040_nThey really know me. I really love them and I love that they love me too!  It was funny when I read this sign. I was compelled to admit that I did save paper rolls – a bag of  them in the attic. 10355887_10207178358643514_5826355140019599807_nThey say confession is good for the soul but that’s not the reaction I got!!

I look forward to updating this posting with extra pictures when I get them. This time my friends CREATED a spectacular surprise for me! Thanks to my friends for the party and to you for reading.

My Personal Reflection – When you areIMG_6921 like me, the kind of person who is always ready to help others, it is a strange sensation to be on the receiving end.  Quite a shock to the system. Maybe that’s why in that surreal moment of surprise I was so in touch with another surreal moment – the moment the doctors told my family and me that my mother was going to die. So if any of my friends noted a faraway look in me that was it.  I was again connecting with her.
