A year older...and wiser? Hm.

I woke up very early this morning - not because it's my birthday - but because it rained so heavily and the downpour was incredibly loud on our roof tiles! Despite the cold and wet weather my day started off cheery with two sales. Yay! Dawanda, my selling venue, sent me this little birthday ditty that I thought was kinda cute:

We hope you have a wonderful day,
With plenty of time to laugh and play.
In the year to come, we hope you'll stop by,
Our little site, to sell or to buy
Items as unique and lovely as you
Specially handcrafted, made with love too!
I decided to take the afternoon off (the privilege of the self-employed), and I wouldn't have gotten any decent work done anyway, because the phone was ringing non-stop today :)
I received a bunch of birthday cards from friends near and far - I love cards - and so many birthday wishes on Facebook and via email, it's overwhelming. That really made my day extra special. A BIG THANKS to you all - you know who you are!
To answer the question in the title of this post. Well, I always set out to learn as much as possible every day, and with my soon-to-be-online website and all, I do believe I have acquired some specialized knowledge in the past year of which I am quite proud :)
I'll close this post with a pic of me, right before my mad dash to the local bakery to pick up my cake. I was dripping wet when I came back. The cake survived.

More on that custom-made ring I'm wearing in a future post!
