  7. Cool Beans, Mary!
    November 29th is my birthday, too. I turned 49. This is my BIG year to tie up loose ends from the first 50 years so I can sweetly sail into the next 50! The day always gets mixed in with Thanksgiving but I love the double dose of reflecting on things I am grateful for. My brother and oldest nephew were here from Cleveland. We walked through a HUGE Christmas light display, along with Grandma and dd Erica, in a park near Lake Superior. Later in the evening I spent time sippin’ Root Beers with a friend. I hope this year brings you all the things you wish for. lorijane

  15. Happy Birthday Mary! I enjoy your blog sooo much and I hope you enjoy your special day. I was actually thinking about you and Miss Isbellle today before I knew it was your birthdy. I babysit my friends Pug all week and it made me think of Miss Isbelle. Give her a hug for me and let her give you a little Pug snuffle for your birthday.

    Hi Traci: I have a glass and porcelain pug collection (started by my mother). My daughter and husband gave me a new one today that’s works as a little box . . . you open up it’s back. So cool. Hugs, M

  28. Hi Mary,

    I enjoy your fantastic designs and creativity and wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday.


  29. Many Birthday Blessings Mary. Hard to believe we are the same age. I always assumed I was the senior crone 😀 and you were the spry and sprightly decades younger junior. Photoshop has a lot to answer for or else your genetic makeup is one of your best gifts that the birth fairies left you.

    Have a wonderful day, enjoy the fire, the stamps and the loving embrace of your family.

    Hugs and blessings – Jean Fitch

  32. Happy Birthday Mary! I’d never have guessed 51! Super talented and super beautiful-must be something in the stampin’ mist 😉 hope you have a terrific day!

  33. Happy Birthday Mary! You sure don’t look like your in your 50’s…not even your 40’s….I’d guess 30’s! Your doing something right…must be that stampin’ therapy! ;0…Have a fabulous day!
