A Doll’s Birthday, Or it Was

I have never been so livid in my entire life.  Anna forgot my birthday.  That glorious day when I came into her life. 

It was last month and she let it go by without a word until now.  And she has to nerve to come to me now and ask me about my birthday.

It will be ages before I am ready to forgive such atrocity.  Until then I can’t even look at her let alone speak.

“But don’t you want your present?”

“Anna let me help make it especially for you! :)”

…Thank you…

What could it be?

Wow, for once Hikaru is speechless.  Anyway, I made her present as part of a challenge I’m doing on my craft blog.  I did the same thing last summer to make clothes for Hikaru and this time I will be mostly making things for Usagi.

I only partially forgot Hikaru’s birthday, I got the month wrong.  For some reason I got it in my head that she was unboxed in June instead of the end of May.  Which is why I waited until now to make her present as the first project of that challenge.

Her birthday present is jewelry, two pearl necklaces and a pair of chunky pearl bracelets.  I’ll let her describe them now.

Yes….First off is this wonderful pearl necklace!  A classic piece that will work beautifully with all my lovely dresses!  I had been wanting a string of pearls for ages now, how did Anna know?

And in case that string of pearls wasn’t enough, Anna even added a ribbon and pearl choker.  It would look perfect with my favorite pink dress (see Its Finish! And Its Gorgeous!).

And yes, “chunky” is one way to describe these lovely bracelets.  I have to wonder if they are perhaps a tad too large for my delicate wrists.  But I believe they will work with my more casual outfits.

Anna was kind enough to make a bracelet for Usagi as well.

Usagi was sweet enough to help make my precious gift, so it is fitting to give her a small reward.

I am still a little irritated.  Anna does indeed own a calendar, such an important date was surely properly marked?

I suppose Anna can’t help being human at times.  And she didn’t completely overlook my birthday.

But next year I will mark the calendar myself, in such a way that she will be sure to notice.  It will be impossible for such a mix up to repeat.  For now I am at peace.
