Another Day...No Big Deal

It's JUST my birthday.
No big deal!

I was about 6 in this photo...so that's just a few years ago

I don't need any gifts, fanfare, or special treatment.

Wait! What am I saying?
A birthday deserves LOTS of fanfare!

So...
How about a Follower's Giveaway?

All you have to do to enter is:
  1. Be a FOLLOWER by one of the gazillion ways to follow me.
  2. Leave a short and sweet comment
  3. Only one entry per person.
  4. The Follower's Giveaway will end on May 12th at 6 p.m. MST (comments left after that time won't count.)
  5. Make sure I have your email address or you can't win!
What's the prize you ask? I can't tell you because it's a surprise...
I'm going to the quilt store today to pick out 
something for me (for my birthday) and something for a lucky winner.

It's going to be a great day!

P.S. I have a new email address:

Happy Birthday!
It is a good day all around. The weather here has finally started to warm up and (maybe) stay that way. The weatherman says friday will have a high of 78. Woot!

Happy Birthday Carol.
Your blog is my favorite. YOu are always happy and upbeat. YAY
I have been so busy raising my 90 year old parents lately I have no calm and relaxing life flopping around on the couch eating chocolate. Now everything is run run run
I am so happy that you are still alive and getting older. Consider the alternative....
I hope you have a cake and pressie filled day
Love always

lefuntz said...

I 'm so sorry I missed your birthday. I'm a bit under the weather and not being a very good follower. I hope it was super fun!

StitchinByTheLake said...

I think I'm late Carol but I hope you had a wonderful day! I have a good excuse though - drove 1100 miles in the last two days going to see a grandson's college graduation. No one but a grandmother would drive 550 miles to spend 3 hours and then drive back. :) blessings, marlene

StitchinByTheLake said...

I meant to say - you know exactly what I mean since you have the monkey boys. I bet you'd drive that far to see them play a ball game or to go to kindergarten graduation. :) blessings, marlene
