Kidding Around

"Everyman can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends." Marcus Tullius Cicero

Today I started celebrating my best friend's day of birth by whipping up a hand-painted card featuring a few of his favorite things in one; animals- namely goats, baby goats, & skepticism of others' motives through the side eye expression. 

There's some gorgeous, artisan crafted, goat shaped soap (from Oil Patch Farm on Etsy) to accompany this card, don't worry. My gag gift giving game is still en pointe.

(I wish I could've shown you a better photo b/c this soap it so detailed and pretty, but I couldn't unwrap a gift, y'know. He also said won't be using it, because he likes it too much! )

I'm a lucky lady to be married to someone that can poke fun at things most ppl take seriously. To all the Virgos ♍️, you're an intelligent, caring, and incredibly hard working special lot. May this year bring you the amazing rewards you deserve. :)

Do you make your own birthday cards?
Are silly and fun gifts your thing? 

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Well one my all-time favorite people in this world is a Virgo ... my sister. And yes, both Janice and I love silly things, and if it is a gift all the better.

    1. Virgos are awesome, and silly gifts with Virgos are even better. 💕

  2. Too funny! Recently my husband and I were discussing astrology and how so many things are worded vaguely enough to apply to just about anyone...but then on this one site we read up about ourselves and family members and things were weirdly spot on. Plus it said our signs are a fantastic match, so I can't argue with that!

    1. Ahhhh, yes. The vague sun sign horoscope is a catch all. 😉 A true natal chart, however...🌌
