Birthdays and Giveaways......

Look at what the postman delivered to me yesterday! I love getting good things in the mail.
I bought the canisters on etsy a couple weeks ago.
The ladybug and toadstool were from 2 swaps I was in thru swap-bot.

Cute, huh?!




Today is my birthday. Everyone in my family is coming over for the weekend. It will be the first time in 12 years since everyone came to OUR house all at the same time.
Last time was when our son was born! We moved a couple years later and always lived too far apart to get together other than once a year. I have lots to do before they all arrive!

As for the giveaway.....just leave me a comment with Birthday wishes...I need them.....I turned __ today! I'll draw a name on Monday and post who wins this cute apron I made:

or this one....

or this one....



Be sure to note which apron you'd like!

Happy Youthday - you're only as old as you feel :) Loving apron number one! Hope you take more than one moment to sit back and enjoy your family, in amongst all the craziness! (yes YOU, sit still! It can be done LOL) have a fantastic weekend

Happy Birthday!
I love those broiled PB and candy sammies your kids made. (Yum!)
I am currently in an apron swap on Swap-bots. My first apron swap. I am hoping all goes well. My partner requested that I make a full apron and not just a plain one she wants a frilly one. I am mostly done. I am not quite sure about these frilly straps. I am off to the fabric store for a bit of help. Silly me I was thinking we would be making regular aprons you tie around your waist.
I will let you know how it goes.

Happy, happy birthday! Judging by your picture if you have a 12 year old you must have had him at age 10 - that's when I tell everyone I started! I'd have to pick the middle apron, but they are all cute. I'm working on one for a swap now, too, and it's so much fun. Blessings, marlene

Happy Birthday Val! I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family. How nice that everyone can get together for the weekend and celebrate with you! I love all of your aprons but I'm hoping you get a great birthday gift for yourself! By the way I don't think you'll ever be old. You have the kind of spunk, energy and personality that will keep you forever young! Happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope that you are having a really good day! That's so fun that you'll get to be with your entire family. I have a big family and we all live far apart, so it is always so great when we are all able to get together. It doesn't happen very often. Enjoy your day!

(All three of those aprons are beautiful...it's hard to choose a favorite. I think I like the green one the best.)

Sandra said...

Happy Birthday felicitations from Canada! Let me offer you a big homemade cheesecake brownie and a nice glass of ice-cold milk -- yummy!

All 3 aprons are cute, but I think the strawberry jeans one is my favorite :)

I hope that you had a GREAT birthday and that you are continuing to enjoy your birthday weekend =)
I just found your site from your post on The Apronista and I love it! I joined the Sassy Apron Swap and the Flirty Apron Swap – which will be my first ever, and I am constantly looking for inspiration. Your aprons are absolutely beautiful, although I am partial to the strawberry one, of the three that you are offering. I am going to add your site to my list of places I visit daily. Thank you!

But any of them would do!

Happy Birthday to you. You make great looking aprons. I've seen some of them on different apron swap pictures. I'd love to win one of these. Hope I'm not too late.

drizzle said...

Happy Day! I love birthdays. The more the better I say.

Your creations are great, but I am more than a little partial to the strawberry one. I just love it and it would be so cute on me! ;) I hope you had a great day...it seams like you did!
