Well, for my birthday I got a round and oval matt cutter (yeah!! Finally I can cu them myself). I got several blank white paper and bamboo Japanese fans to paint. I got a book of art by Stephen Hickman. I got a circular saw and bifold doors (to cut and make shelves out of). I think I got a few other things but can't remember right now. I bought myself a miniature violin for mt BJDs (it is in a case and very detailed and nicely done), got them a miniature silver Samovar, and a lovely wardrobe/chest of drawers. Pictures of some of these will betaken sometime soon and posted.
So far it has been a nice day and I am learning to live in the day and not dwell on the past of worry about the future.
