"What Good is a Birthday?..."

...especially without some yummilicious (eye)candy...
and a few mental musings
just sprinkled in here and there for a bit of spunk.:)
"A birthday is just the first day
of another 365-day journey around the sun.
Enjoy the trip."
~Author Unknown

"I have a promiscuous muse.
My muse wants to own every color,
work in many media,
and in numerous genre."
~Mary Klotz

"Rekindle your creative fire by making time to play."
~Mari Messer

...and play I did...
with a total and complete adornment of my ATCs
in luscious layers of sparkly bling!!!
This birthday week
I treated my artistic Muse
to an all out, energized "free for all"...
celebrated lavishly with brush, pen, and palette.
The two of us had a ball!
So...in answer to my question:
"What good is a Birthday?..."
Here goes:

"Because time itself is like a spiral,
something special happens on your birthday each year:
The same energy that God invested in you at birth
is present once again."
~Menachem Mendel Schneerson

Happy birthday. This is a huge birthday month. Hope you have a wonderful day and year.

I love the quotes you come up with. I have to borrow the promiscuous muse one as it fits how I feel so much.

Your ATC's are beautiful.
