A Birthday Giveaway!


"36 years old," I told my family at dinner tonight, shaking my head. "I'm on the downhill slope to 40." My dad just laughed. "Hey," he replied, "we're in our 60's. We're on the downhill slope to death..."

It was a fabulous birthday today. Lunch at Lucille's BBQ, dinner at King's Fish House, cupcakes from my favorite bakery, kid-free shopping time at Macy's, a rousing game of musical chairs with my daughters, a present scavenger hunt that was written up by my darling husband, who even took time to gift wrap my ironing board -- since I don't have a locker anymore, he said. I'm feeling pretty spoiled tonight. Truly I have The Best Family In The Entire World.

For that matter, I have the best readers in the entire world, which is why I love holding a giveaway on my birthday each year. It's my little way of saying thanks to all of you wonderful people who constantly make my day with your encouraging comments. This year my dear friends at Fabricworm have volunteered to help me out by supplying the incredibly awesome prize: 2 yards of your choice from the new Charley Harper collection. Your choice...as in any print from that line -- poplin, canvas, flannel, or knits.

The giveaway will only be open until 5pm on January 1st, so get your entries in ASAP. Leave a comment on this post -- any comment -- for one entry. Followers old and new can leave a second comment for a second entry. International entries are welcome, and please be sure to include your email address in your comment if you're a no-reply blogger. I'll pick a random winner and announce it on Wednesday night. The winner needs to contact me within 48 hours or I'll have to choose another name. Spread the word -- this prize is too good to miss!

You guys have made my 2013 a wonderful one, and I thank you with all my heart.
