~ Special Birthday Giveaway ~


**This Giveaway has ended.**
Almost 200 posts, 200 followers this week, and a birthday! What does this mean to you? Why, a special giveaway, of course! Today is my birthday! Yes, a "Halloween baby" as everyone says to me.

To celebrate my birthday I purchased some gifts for YOU! I hope you will like them. I also thought this would be a good opportunity to thank everyone who has followed me and my little blog {thank you!}.

So, I'll bet you want to know what you're getting.

Here it is! It's a bunch of stuff actually. You have:


1. This very popular and antique-y looking 2010 desk calendar ~ it's quite pretty.

2. Where Women Create by Jo Packham. This book is filled with eye candy like you wouldn't believe.

3. Nell Hill's Feather Your Nest ~ It's All In The Details by Mary Carol Garrity. This is one to drool over.

4. Two spools of ribbon ~ one of which says "Naughty But Nice".

5. A Holiday pen.

6. Two packages of Christmasy embellishments.

7. A little holiday bucket, and

8. A holiday stamp.

Here's a close-up of the books.










To enter all you have to do is leave me a comment ~ that's it. Nice and simple.

This giveaway will run through Wednesday, November 4th.

I'm going for the gold again! Sign me up!

I just returned three of Mary Carol Garrity's books to the library. They were amazing. I only heard of her recently through another blog ... I live under a rock, I know.

Happy Birthday Halloween Baby! I think you should treat yourself to a delicious cake :). If you lived closer, I would make you one. Betty Crocker has a new line of gluten free boxed cakes that are fantastic. (The chocolate chip cookie mix is also delcious.) Top it off with some buttercream frosting and some marshmallow fondant and you have yourself one delicious cake. Blessings to you on your birthday!

You do of course realize that you're probably more accurately described as a Valentine's Day Baby, if you know what I mean (wink-wink).

Happy Birthday!!

I just found this blog when looking for a design idea and saw this. Hope you had a Happy Birthday! My son just turned 19 on Halloween, and I think it was the first year he embraced the holiday as "his special day" too. He didn't care too much for it before. (Quote: I always have to look at people dressed up in silly costumes on my birthday"). I told him one day he would enjoy it and bought him skeleton ornament that he promptly put in his closet for the next 6 years. I see this year he pulled it out and say it next to him on his webcam all week. :)
Did you always enjoy having Halloween as your birthday?

PS. awesome blog!


Cheers,
D
