Celebrations and a Giveaway!

Today I'm celebrating!  Why you ask?  Because I just turned...


I've been freaking out and feeling old...like the other day when the news announced that Nirvana's song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was turning 19!  I swear it was seems like only yesterday when that song came out.  But you know what?  I woke up this morning feeling happy and excited to be "40".  Go figure.

My other celebration is I have 50 followers!  Never in a million years would I have thought to have even get 25.  You gals ROCK!

So to celebrate I decided what better way to do it than to have a giveaway!  Here's a little something I put together.  Its nothing super stupendous so don't go getting too excited.  *wink*

I have for one lucky winner "The Directory of Quilting Techniques" by Caroline Rodriguez, 2 Civil War Homefront charm packs and a pinkeeper/cushion made by moi.



How do you win?  It's simple.  There are two ways to win and no trivia questions to answer this time.  Simply leave a comment on this post...birthday wishes not required...and that will get you one chance.  For a second chance, post about the giveaway on your blog and leave a second comment telling me you did it.

Easy peasy...right?  On Friday I'll do that random number thingy to pick a winner!

Now I'm off to spend some time with Ms. Crockett.

Happy Birthday! Congratulations on reaching your blog milestone too. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. For my 40th, co-workers hung black and put banners announcing my BDay on the entrance gate into parking garage of the company for which I worked. Hundreds of people saw it.
