Oh 44! - Happy Birthday Month to Me!

ohdeedoh.com - Yarn Artist Heather Drum

Oh yes it is true, this very month I will turn 44 years old... more to the point I will have accomplished my 44th year and be making tracks through my 45th year!.. 1/2 way to 50!  Over all I am feeling pretty good about this, and thought a month of celebration and merry making would be just the thing to go along with that!

One of the big things I am going to do this month is have a photo session with the loverly and talented Meredith from Risque Boudoir of Atlanta!  This is a fantastic gift from my ever so thoughtful husband.. and I am SO excited to about it and to share the process with you over the next few weeks.

I am going to tackle all the issues that go along with the shoot. Picking what to wear, body issues, social implications, technical bits plus hints and tips from Meredith to make the most of any photo of yourself!.. everything... it should be a wild ride for sure!

Of course all play and no work makes Maddie a bit short on pocket change so after almost all of December off I will be back to teaching!  Multiple software classes as well as sewing and embroidery at both my private studio and at Chattanooga Sewing.

January also means time to purge  my studios of projects that did not make the cut and excess fabric I no longer need. I will be posting up boxes full of crafty goodness that can be YOURS for just the price of postage.. watch for that!

With Valentines Day just around the corner it will be time to start working on those projects... maybe a couple of banners, some suggestive pillow cases and a couple other sweet nothings to share with those you love.

It is going to be a busy month!.. I hope you join me here and on Facebook, I can't wait to see you!

Sounds like a great month, indeed! I am glad that you booked a two hour photo session: Time enough to relax in front of the camera.

Happy Birthday! And 44 is nothing. I turn 54 in February so I have entire DECADE on you! Most importantly, you look fabulous. Looking forward to learning more about bringing the sexy back...as is my husband!

My forties were pretty good. I couldn't see what all the fuss was about. Now I'm 52, I'm still surprised by all the people who think they're old in their forties. Seriously?
