happy birthday!!! =) And, btw...I didn't realize that I should have been checking blogger for "spam" comments and approving them - i was alarmed today to find a whole bunch from the past 2 months - yours being one of them! I'm so sorry! I'm usually good about responding, so sorry if you felt like I ignored you!
Hey there! Happy birthday!! Those new colors are amazing; I use pastels as well, although they are not my favorite material (I prefer watercolor). Anyway, thank you for you comment, it was really sweet of you.
