Happy Birthday Giveaway

Happy Birthday to me on the 30th!! I love birthdays and I love contests. In fact, I recently won another blogger's Birthday Contest, and I have a cool apron coming all the way from Australia. So, I've decided to do the same thing, and give YOU a gift for my birthday!! Plus, I'm only a few posts away from my 200th Post! Doesn't that sound like reason enough for a contest?

So, just leave me some sort of sweet, totally unexpected, birthday comment and also let me know which gift you'd like to receive. Make sure I have some way to reach you (so your blogger profile needs to be public so I can leave a comment on your blog or add your email address in your comment, too). Feel free to spread the news; winner will be randomly chosen next Friday the 6th of June.

Crochet-related: My totally whimsical Toast Love purse

Sewing-related: A pair of custom-made Flirty-Not-Dirty rubber gloves similar to those pictured (also the only thing for sale in my new Etsy shop)

Cupcake-ish: A fun little kit with cupcake cookbook, silicone muffin "tin" and silicone spatula (picture coming)

Gee, Shawnee, I'd wish you the best birthday ever even without a prize!!! So, happy-happy birthday. More candles only add to your glow. :D Oh, and the pink gloves are de-vine!!


Tracey said...

Hugs and Kisses - and Birthday Wishes. What an inspiration and fun person you are. You know I am crazy and all about those pink gloves. They actually make me want to clean the house and even wash my car!! Now those are some amazing gloves!

I hope your birthday is an amazing day for an amazing person!

Congratulations on starting your Etsy store! I hope you do well, I know I've enjoyed having my store... it's interesting to see what really sells too.

The gloves look really cute! I think it's neat. I tend to use disposable ones, but that's mostly because I've never found a pair worth keeping. When I've had the reusable ones they get moldy and yucky quick. Maybe I should pin them on the line (which I don't have yet,) outside. I know I shouldn't keep using disposable ones. It's not so good for the environment.

I hope you have a wonderful birthday! Mine will be in a couple months, I'm still not sure yet what kind of contest I'll do, but I'd like to do one.

Thanks for having a contest, these things always make blogging fun, even if I never win and only just read about it.


Celestial Freak said...

BTW... I have a link somewhere on my blog re: The Apronista, but I never signed up before they switched to invite only, do you know how I score an invite?

Happy Birthday!!

Birthday Blessings

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.

Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"

By Joanna Fuchs

I would love the cupcake kit! It's wonderful!

Shawnee, I hope your birthday is filled with family, aprons, cupcakes and wishes come true. Best of luck with your Etsy shop. (I'm trying to get some thing made so I can start my own.) If I was lucky enough to win this, I'd be choosing the cupcake kit. Thanks for sharing!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday Dear Shawnee!
Happy Birthday to you!

(of course, this is being sung at the top of my lungs and off key while wearing an apron and holding a wooden spoon for a microphone)

Shawnee, have a wonderful birthday!! I am so glad we e-met over the blogosphere! Your joie-de-vivre is contagious.

And you know what? Even without a prize, I'd sing to you. But since there is: Cupcakes. Mmmmm. Aaarrggh.

Teresa said...

Have a fantabulous day! May you never run out of ideas, may you always have time to sew, and may your fabric stash continue to grow!
Love the cupcake cookbook, it looks adorable.
Happy Birthday!!!!!!


Katie said...

Yay! Happy Birthday Shawnee! I can't believe this is my first visit to your blog. I'm totally digging your gorgeous aprons!

Mona said...

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I just stopped by to wish,
a Happy Birthday to YOU!!
I hope you've had a great day!

Carolyn said...

Happy Birthday!!! 30th, no less. What a great idea, to do a fun post like this, and to give! The thirtieth is an awesome birthday. Here I came by to visit your blog for the first time, and to thank you for coming by for my give away, and look what happened! I walked into your gift box. I love this. Well, so glad you liked the pillow, and can tell you I am loving your delightful gifts here! Visited your flirty apron site, too. They are all darlin'! So glad I came by.

Have a great week-end, and Happppppppppy B-Day! Party on. :-)

Stacy said...

Shawnee, I just found you today as well. The Apronista looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for the invite.
That apron is darling. I can't believe you found fabric like that...perfect! And the red ruffle pulls it all together.
I would go with the cupcake kit, mostly because I have been eyeing one just like it but can't seem to justify it. I do love cup cakes though. But your red velvet balls look divine!
Thanks so much for hosting the swap! And so glad I found you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Love Stacy

Tonya "Skye" said...

Shawnee a birthday poem for you:)and the cupcake is nice to;)The gloves remind me of the ones worn by the to funny english ladies that do the show how clean is your house so totally cute:)

A Birthday Wish

On your birthday
stretch for a sunbeam...
Reach for a star...
Go for a beautiful dream.

Pick out some wishes,
no matter how far,
or how hard to reach
they may seem.

Cherish some hopes
that are dear to your heart.

And as a new year comes in view,
treasure and keep them
and know from the start
that this year
you can make them come true!

Celebrate this day, and embrace all the reasons to believe in wishes again.

Each birthday wish
I've ever made
Really does come true.
Each year I wish
I'll grow some more
And every year
- Anne Friday
Hoping this is the best Birthday ever!!!!Hugs Darcy Watts/knottyknitter40 on ravelry
