Birthday Giveaway

Happy Birthday to me!!!!  I'm celebrating my 10th anniversary of 28.  Man I just can't believe I'm getting closer and closer to the top of the hill.  I hope I don't hurt myself when I tumble uncontrollably and not so gracefully to the bottom.  I'll probably break something.  You all better start praying now. 

I'm trying to keep my mind off the getting older issue so I think we'll have a giveaway.  After much thought and deliberation I decided on a Simply Color Junior Jelly roll full of awesome ombre fabrics.  I'm jealous because I've had my eyes on this junior jelly roll but haven't had time to do anything with it.  

 
And guess what?  I finished binding quilt number 3 yesterday!  Can you all believe that?  Three bindings in one week!  I only have one left to bind and that's Mr. Fugly.  Now if you go back and read about Mr. Fugly you will find out I was out numbered on this one.  I do not like him but almost everyone commented about how nice and modern he is.  I think maybe you people were being nice and trying to make me feel better {insert big cheesy smile here}.  

Okie dokie, it's time for the giveaway rules.  There are basically no rules, well maybe just one.  You want to win this most awesomest junior jelly roll?  Leave us a comment.  If you would like an extra entry or two, just sign up to receive our email updates, tweet, or pin something.  But remember, if you get fancy and do more than one thing leave separate comments.

I forgot to say when this ends.  Let's leave it open until 11:59 PM Tuesday January 22nd.  I'll announce the winner Wednesday.  Good Luck!

Have a happy Saturday...I've been warned that my candles will probably start a forest fire.  My husband is a funny boy.  I think I'm going to nick name him Chuckles.

Joyce Carter said...

Happy Birthday, Vicki! Thanks for a great giveaway.
True story-My daughter came home from school one day and wanted to know how old I was. I told her I was 29. I didn't think anything else about it until the next day. She came home and said her teacher told her I couldn't be 29 because her brother was 16.So I had to be older than that. What did her teacher know anyway!

Ooh Happy Birthday Vicki. How funny we not only share the same name BUT the same birth month too!(my birthday was on the 10th and my twin boy's had theirs on the 15th) HAHA Sadly, I can say that I am MUCH older than you are, you young chicken you! LOL

We also share the love of Simply Color as well it appears. I have wanted that fabric since Vanessa first showed a sneak peek of it last year. I would be thrilled to win. Ok, so would everyone else I guess.

Have a great birthday. Oh yea, and the other side of that hill isn't TOO bad. Of course, I could be lying. hehe

1. First & Foremost...Happy Birthday! (I dreaded 30, 40 didn't even phase me.... 40 is the new 20, so if you're doing anything with a hill, it better be sledding or hill rolling!)

2. Love the Jelly Roll, but LOVE Mr. Fugly (guess I have no taste LOL!) I'm a brown girl through and through. My quilts are evenly split between BRIGHT AND LOUD and Black/Brown earth-toney muted whispery colors.

3. If you feel bad about so many people fighting over a jelly roll...just send Mr. Fugly to me & I will grant your Birthday wish of making him disappear LOL!

Enjoy your cake (be sure to have your sunglasses on for the candles...protective wear...shows you have a sense of humor..and hides the tear that escapes as you turn one year older...I mean...more experienced!)

TheStylishHome said...

I'm an email subscriber too...(almost forgot).

Just remember...more candles means a bigger cake to hold them all :)
