5 Days of Giveaways {Day 5}

2014 July 18

Oh dear… it’s the last day of the giveaways… I’m a bit sad to see this week end. I’ve so enjoyed reading all of your comments! They are always such a bright spot in my day. I’ve saved my favorite bundle for this giveaway prize, because it happens to be my birthday today. I love vacationing on my birthday. The memories are always different and full of new things!

Today’s bundle… the photo does not do it justice. I’ve been attracted lately to metallic fabrics, and soft colours. And gold – which is apparently right on trend. Fancy, me being on-trend! I was never “that” person. I must be gaining a better perspective on life now that I’m 35. (Is it sad that I had to ask my husband how old I was turning before I wrote it down?!)

Anyhow. I picked up some fat eighth’s from one of my local quilt shops and paired them with a fat quarter of Crabapple Path that I recently got from Fabricspark. (Tomorrow is the last day in her Summer Sale! Code “Summer Sale” to save 25% on orders over $50.) Just for fun, I decided to add a few handmade buttons from some gold dupioni silk I had in my stash. I am imagining some sort of amazing bag made from this bundle, and since I bought some of the same fabrics for myself you might see one soon!

Here’s the detail recap again: Each day this week I have posted a new giveaway. Each giveaway will stay open until midnight on July 21, 2014 (EST). The giveaways are separate, so be sure to enter each day for your chance to win! The giveaways are open internationally – so everyone can have a chance! Enter on the Rafflecopter widget below – and if you don’t have Facebook to sign in with, just use your name and email!

Be sure to go back and enter each giveaway from this week if you haven’t already. Here are the links: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4.

I’ll be back from vacation on Monday, so you’ll hear from me on Tuesday and hopefully I can post the winners by mid-week! Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for following along and hanging out with me this week. I so appreciate your support!

    When I turned 10, I had a party with my friends and cousins and it was a blast!!! We had this huge steel bowl that was used for a salad at a large New Years dance, but with the addition of a cushion, we used it for spinning on the floor!! It was crazy fun!!!

    My favourite birthday was when my husband took me to Punta Cana for my 50th. He made all of the arrangements and reservations. All I had to do was pack my things. Thanks!

    Hmmm… fav birthday memory. Probably when one of my friends threw me a surprise 19th birthday party. She even planned it at my own home and the whole gang was there. She really did surprise me!

    Thanks for sharing your birthday (and giveaway gifts) with all of us!

    My favorite birthday memory is from the first birthday I had when my husband and I were dating. He completely surprised me. We had only been dating 9-10 months at the time. He made me a chocolate cake with a cherry-vanilla icing (best thing ever!), which was two layers and shaped in a heart. So much work! :) He then gave me a ring with my birthstone in it. He set the bar really high from the start, and I was so blown away by the amount of thought and time that he put into everything! He is not one to bake (my birthday seems to be the only occasion), and I had no idea at the time that he cared so much! I wasn’t expecting anything, maybe a card and a CD! Haha! :)

    Lots of great memories, but one that stands out is for my 16th birthday, I had a bunch friends come and stay at my dad’s restaurant at the local ski resort for the weekend, and we had gone out to a see a movie, when we came back to the restaurant, there was a huge banner up, wishing me happy birthday, and balloons filled the ceiling. We had a blast that weekend, but the balloons stand out, funny how something so simple can create such fond memories! Happy Birthday Sherri!

  14. July 18, 2014

    Birthdays were never big in our family when I was growing up and my husband isn’t too good with it either. In fact I rather sadly can think of several when he has forgotten, but I think my favourite was when he bought me a gift voucher for a beauty salon visit and I had a lovely relaxing time. There is always a cake because a birthday must have cake. Wishing you a wonderful birthday and happy memories. x

  18. July 18, 2014

    Happy Birthday! I can never remember how old I am either :) 2 years ago my family rented a cottage during the week of my birthday. I don’t get to see them very often because we live far apart, so it was great spending a whole week with them!

    My favorite birthday was when I turned the big 50, my son and daughter took me to see Aerosmith, made me feel young, that was my 5th time seeing them and enjoyed every minute of it. Sewing is my favorite then comes music, Happy Birthday, enjoy your 30′s that was the age I had the most fun!

    My favorite birthday memory is from the sleepover I had when I turned 16. Sometime during the night us girls decided to straighten my (hip length) hair. Since the iron was in my parents room, where they were sleeping, we decided the best course of action was to go down the road and get the iron from my friend’s house. My parents weren’t too happy to wake up and find we were gone (whoops!) but it was a great time. :) Thanks for the chance to win, and enjoy your birthday!!

    My favorite birthday memory would have to be my most recent one in January. I hit that milestone birthday . . . 60 . . . and my two daughters had a surprise party for me. And it was indeed a surprise! Vehicles parked all over the street at my one daughter’s house where the party was, and in my typical fashion, I did not notice let alone recognize a single one!!

    HAPPY 35TH BIRTHDAY!!! What a perfect age to be, you get to enjoy the wisdom you have acquired and yet still young enough to gain some new perspectives. Great giveaway. Love the buttons that go so well with the fabrics.

    For my 35th birthday I went skydiving. I so wanted to do a tumbling jump (flip) that I had seen on commercials so I went on a tandem jump. I talked my brother into jumping with me. Skydiving is an ultimate high. I jumped in November so it was cold that high up (14,000 ft) but I didn’t notice. I also forgot to pull my chute cord so I was fortunate to be attached to someone who did. LOL. I was so enjoying the scene from the sky.

    I was fortunate enough to spend my 35th birthday in Paris, only because it fell in the middle of a tour I was on with my church choir. My birthday, May 8, is also a national holiday in France (their VE Day) so there was a parade! Thanks for the awesome give aways this week and Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday! I laughed when I read that you had to ask your husband how old you were turning; I do that, too. :) I hope that you make memories this year that you can look back on as being the best birthday memories! I have so many, but I guess I loved last year’s birthday; my husband took me to Longwood Gardens, PA, to an outdoor orchestra concert, and we brought a picnic with wine, strawberries, and cheese and listened to beautiful music while the sun set, and the stage lit up with golden lights, and I wore my big floppy pink hat. :) I love doing things as my birthday present! My birthday is in a week, and I think this year we’re going to the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum.

    For some reason my sixth birthday party is standing out in my mind right now. I had several girls over and everyone wore a nice party dress. There were yellow tiaras and party blowers on the table and everyone received a fan as a party favour which we all posed with for photos.

    My favorite birthday memory actually isn’t from my birthday – it’s from my friend’s surprise 40th party. She had absolutely NO idea…in fact she thought *she* was the one planning a small get-together with friends. Little did she know that we knew her so well, we had already been planning EXACTLY what she wanted for over a month! It was hilarious to see her reaction!

    This week I just had a birthday. My grand daughter brought a cake. She was determined to put 64 (gasp) candles on it and light them. My grandson in law started yelling for a fire extinguisher when she got just half of them lit. What a good time we had

    On my 21st birthday, my mom took me to the horse races near where I grew up in Pennsylvania. While we were there she just happened to win a drawing for a trip to California. She hadn’t traveled much and had never flown so it was very exciting!

    A few years ago my cousin (who was about 5) helped me blow out the candles on my cake. She then grabbed the cake in both hands and turned about half of it into a pile of crumbs!

  67. July 21, 2014

    Favorite birthday memory from childhood: getting to go to Chuck E Cheese every year with a few friends – I’m sure it drove my mom insane, but she still did it :)

    Favorite birthday memory… I think it has to be when I was 4 and my grandma made me a birthday cake that had a barbie on top, and the whole skirt was made of frosting and icing. It was amazing. She was such an amazing crafter, absolutely inspiring.
