Happy 50th Birthday, Ma!
Today is my mom's 50th birthday.
We got her a scanner for pictures and negatives.
I took the Amazon paper stuffing and used it to wrap up the present, and since there were still a few feet of paper leftover, I rolled it up and made a bow out of it. (My mom made a awesome wrapping of my Dreamcast for my 21st birthday out of the newspaper's colorful comics section with a fanning bow. This doesn't top it, but I think it still looks cool.)
The card is made from the cardboard that usually comes with stamps when you order it from usps.com. I used my X-Acto to trace out a 5 and 0.
I left the 0 chunky enough to write out a happy birthday note. Usually, we sign it, "Love, Your bad kids," but we signed our names this year because it was a special birthday.
Hopefully, I look as good as she does when I'm fifty.
