Star-Spangled Birthday

July - Creators Realm - Jelly 24 - Sunny Butterflies with Rainbow Stars

Hello July, and Happy Birthday to all you July Babies! The great thing about July birthdays is that you don’t have a lot of other major holidays to steal the limelight from your special day. The bad thing about having a July birthday is that a lot of people are on vacation which means you […]

Birthday Butterflies

June - Creators Realm - Jelly 24 (almost)

Celebrations and me have an awkward relationship. Thanksgiving, Winter Wish, Shamrock Day, I can get into. Mostly because the centerpiece of said celebration isn’t me. But, birthdays are another story all together. Let’s just say that I get butterflies whenever I think about my birthday approaching. I don’t like being the center of attention. I […]

Cherry-on-Top Birthday

April - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

Hello April babies! There’s a lot going on in your birth month. So, without further ado, let me begin the run down of this month’s happenings. First up, we have April Fools Day. Now, if your birthday falls on April 01, I really feel sorry for you because people are going to spend all day […]

Happy Bird Day

January - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

Hello January Babies! You are truly lucky to be born in January. Not only is your birthday free of being over-shadowed by the present-wrapping and merry-making of December, but you have National Bird Day to celebrate in your birth month to boot! Now you might not be much into birds, but you should be. Birds […]

Holly Jolly Birthday

December - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

Hello to all you December babies! Tis the season to be jolly and to celebrate your birthday! In this month’s post, I wish to share a helpful hint on tackling those “single-gifters” who combine your birthday gift and your holly day gift into one nifty package. First off, I’m on your side. Holly Day gifts […]

Pumpkin-Spiced Birthday

November - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

While I love pumpkin spice like everyone else, what I really love, when fall comes around, is spicing up everything in my life with winter squash and decorative gourds* of every kind—especially pumpkins. I decorate the rooms of my boho-chic caravan with pumpkins—sometimes plain, sometimes accented with various symbols and other embellishments. I place a […]

SPELLtacular Birthday

October - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

For reasons I have revealed elsewhere, October is—for me—a month of haunting fascination mixed with eerie dread. In Cratersville, when I was growing up, October was known as the month that held the all important night where all us kids dressed up in costumes and ate obscene amounts of candy—chocolate being the gold standard in […]

FALLtastic Birthday

September - Creators Realm - Jelly 24

Autumn is almost here! Autumn is my favorite time of year—except for when I was still in school, which made fall a bit like a sour ball. Sure, it was the sweet time of the year, but school gave it a tart punch. That being said, besides being gorgeous weather-wise and sucky school wise, autumn […]

Fun Dog Birthday

August - Cratersville - Jelly 11

It seemed like a good idea at the time. This is my refrain when I’m faced with the fallout from one of those that’s-not-quite-what-I-was-expecting moments. Take the time my sister Poppy and I were planning a birthday surprise for this girl at school. Her name was Suzi—short for Susanne, a name that everyone seemed to […]

Magical Birthday

August - Creators Realm - Jelly 24 - Hobo Magician with Rabbit Mascot

Another month has come and gone, where’s the summer going! Of course, here in the Creators Realm I don’t experience summer the same way that I did in Cratersville, or as I do when I’m staying in the Wanderlore Grove. That’s okay because I always have my eternal clock hovering nearby which enlightens me, not […]
