    Hi Everyone. :)

    I can’t believe it is already time to post September birthdays! I need to post them early this month because I will probably be missing during the first few days.

    Before I get started, I’d like to mention that the third would have been Mark’s (Prober’s) 45th birthday, according to the member’s list. Those of you who were acquainted with him know how much he is missed, especially you Chris. Your brother seemed like a beautiful person, and I’m glad we had the chance to have his input here in the forums. This past year, when I logged in on my own birthday, Mark noticed the date and surprised me with a greeting. So I just wanted to remember his, too. I hope that’s okay. [​IMG]

    InPeace,
    InLove

    Hey September Children! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I made you guys your own little cakes this time. Kind of like cupcakes—I thought September was a good month for cupcakes for some reason or the other. ;)

    If you look closely, you should be able to find the one that is just for you! The décor is all handmade by me out of virtual sugar or sugar substitute (whichever you would like to imagine). I hope that my artwork is not too bad, or too “cheesy”. (If it is cheesy, it will have to be cream cheese or something since we are talking about dessert, right?:rolleyes: ). If you can’t see yours, then let me know, and I will help you find it. As usual, I need to mention where I got part of my inspiration and a lot of help with this month’s project: http://www.henningscake.com/0009.JPG (I couldn’t have done it without them.) ;) :D

    I know that my angles are a little off and everything—kiwimac, I couldn’t make the flames show up on yours and lunamoth, I’m sorry your lunamoth looks a bit tired—that is the only way she would fit on the cake! Anyway, regardless of my level of skill, I sure had fun doing it!

    There are extra cakes, as well, in case I overlooked someone who has logged in during the past year, or if you have not posted your birthday, and you are a “September”, there is still plenty to go around.

    So when are these birthdays (I know some do not call them that, but I am not sure what else to call them—I think I have seen the term “arisings”)?

    They are:


    On the 6th—juantoo3

    On the 8th—kiwimac

    The 14th—Pico

    The 17th—Mahud

    22nd—dailogue is the best (sic?)

    27th--lunamoth


    Happy Birthday September People!

    (Hang on a minute--having trouble "delivering" the cakes. Should be up shortly. :eek:)​

    InPeace,
    InLove​

    Hi Everyone—

    I need to insert this short message regarding the next two posts. I am not sure, but I think I will most likely be offline again for a few days, and rather than be late with these birthday greetings, I thought it better to be early.

    So, juantoo3 and kiwimac, you may want to scroll back through this very short thread if you haven’t read it yet, just to see what’s up with the desserts. I hope you don’t mind that I took the privelege of plating them up for you. If they seem a bit surreal, that’s because they are (and because I am not that great at clip art. [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy.

    InPeace,
    InLove

    Hey there juan!

    I wanted to wish you a happy birthday on the 6th! (Scroll back to see why I have posted this so early.) I brought you your cupcake from the dessert tower on post #2. Those are supposed to be little sugar sprinkles in the shape of your current avatar—the program I used wouldn’t allow me to grab the actual picture to use as a template, so I had to do it freehand, as if I were actually decorating with candy. So, not perfect, but hopefully recognizable. I didn’t think about this before, but I really hope it was okay for me to use it in this way—if not, I certainly hope I am at least forgiven, by you as well as the object of representation. :eek::eek:

    Oh, and I know you are a brownie aficionado, so I decided to add a couple of extra gourmet items to the presentation. I didn’t know if you preferred plain or fancy, and I hope the chopped nuts are not a problem—just scrape them off if you don’t want them. As for the virtual ingredients in any item, as always, I strive to customize them according to what I think each individual would like. [​IMG]

    Also, not long after I joined C-R, I remember reading a post of yours where you wrote about loving the beach and the palm trees and the feeling of the warm sand on your bare feet. I love that, too. So, I hope you have a great birthday, and I am wishing you….

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUANTOO3!

    InPeace,
    InLove

    (Oh, I'm so disappointed! My entire picture wouldn't fit, so I had to cut it down. After much cursing under my breath, I had to cut off a really pretty rose I painted and part of the plate and brownies! Sorry--hope the pic is not too small to see now!)

    Hi kiwimac :)

    I hope you are still around reading and that you get this message. I realize your birthday is not until the 8th, but I had to post some greetings early, for the reason explained above. This is your own special cupcake from the dessert tray in post #2 of this thread. I apologize for not getting your avatar “sprinkled” on there just perfectly, but it is difficult enough with real ones—LOL—even harder with a mouse! I couldn’t get the flames to show up very well without losing the basic picture. Since I am not certain what it stands for (I have an idea or two), I sure do hope it was okay to use it here. :eek::eek: If I have inadvertently commited a faux pas, I apologize for that as well. I try to research these things, but sometimes I do wind up guessing a bit.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIWIMAC!

    Speaking of guessing, I didn’t know what to get you, so maybe you can use something hereà [​IMG]


    InPeace,
    InLove

    (And as with juan's dessert, I had to cut yours down to fit, as well--both were much prettier before--sorry!) Hope you enjoy anyway!)

    Oh, silly me--I've just noticed that I kept saying the "dessert tower" was in the second post of this thread. Nope, it's on the third--the inspiration link is found on #2. Just thought I'd clear that up, in case it was confusing to anyone. Sorry, guys--I'm on big medicine right now! :eek:

    InPeace,
    InLove

    *the :kitty: choir enter stage right, a little more somber than they are for their birthday concerts. Two sleek black beauties have a banner loosely tied to their tails, their pace a bit off of the others*

    *after the general "tune up", the black pair raise their tails, displaying a black-bordered banner, as the others "sing":

    Happy Birthday, Prober/Mark!

    *after they finish, one of the :kitty:s breaks out into a heart-breaking rendition of Amazing Grace*

    *when the final note drifts off, the black pair lower their tails and the entire choir exits stage right, their pace identical to the one used to enter*

    Happy Birthday, juantoo3! Scroll back to get your official greeting. I posted it earlier this week because I did not think I'd be able to be online today. But since I am, I thought I'd bump the thread in your honor. :)

    InPeace,
    InLove

    *a pride of :kitty:s enter stage right and head straight for center stage, a pair of them with a small banner loosely tied to their tails. The :kitty:s "tune up" then, after they are ready, they begin "singing", the pair with the small banner raise their tails, exposing what is printed on it:

    Happy Birthday, juantoo3!

    *after their performance, the :kitty:s with the banner lower their tails, then the :kitty: chorus exit stage right, a couple of kittens performing some tricks for jauntoo3 before following the rest of the chorus*

    Another "bump" of the thread to say Happy Birthday to kiwimac, in the event that he sees it. (Scroll back, mac--there's cake. :))

    Cool! Hi Jamarz! I saw you when you were logged in this morning! So glad to know you are still around. Adding your birthday, Sept. 26th to the thread! (I almost included it originally, in hopes you hadn't forgotten us!)

    See ya then! :)

    InPeace,
    InLove

    Thank you Phyllis and kittie chorus, always welcome at any party.

    Wow I just found this thread...I love my luna moth cupcake InLove! It is beautiful, not tired at all. :D That's really cool, thank you so much!

    Happy birthday Juan and kiwi...we have the best month for our birthday, no?

    And thank you Deb for reminding us about Mark's birthday. He would be close in age to myself (I'll be 46 this year). His presence is greatly missed.

    Anyway...that is awesome...I'll have to check out the site you used to do this. :D:D

    Yay! You saw the thread, juan! I'm glad...I thought maybe Phyll and I were going to have to eat all these cakes by ourselves, with some help from the kitty delegation! :) Hope the day was a nice one....


    Well, looks like it is time to say Happy Birthday to Pico. So...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY PICO!
    [​IMG]

    So, here is your cake--the little guy on top there? Not sure what he is. Maybe from "Transformers" or something like that? Forgive me, as I am not well educated in some areas. Anyway, he is made of virtual sugar sprinkles, and I finally got him to look a little less like the abominable snowman--lol--my artwork is nothing to brag about. Looks like he is going straight for those chocolate swirl cookies, though. :D

    InPeace,
    InLove​

    Hey lunamoth!

    Just saw your post. We must have been posting about the same time.

    Thanks for the compliment--yeah, that cake site is pretty cool. By the way, I've done some more work on your cupcake as well, and so stay tuned...;)

    InPeace,

    And for Mahud:

    Since I don't think we have ever spoken, Mahud, I guess I will just send you something everyone recognizes--a great big smile?

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAHUD!
    [​IMG]

    If you like cake, here is one made specially for you. Your avatar is very interesting! I kind of researched it....but that doesn't mean I can recreate it very well, especially with sprinkles! Anyway, I thought it looked like it might go nicely with some pistachios....hope you enjoy.​

    InPeace,
    InLove​

    salaam, MW--

    Of course you can join in! Mark was beloved here in C-R, as I am sure he was and is in other places.

    While you are here, have some cake (when fasting is over). There's plenty to go around. :)

    InPeace,
    InLove
