Big 40 Birthday Giveaway




My birthday is on April 21, and I am turning the BIG 40!!! It is so hard to believe I am turning 40 because I sure do not feel old. In my mind, I still feel like I am in my twenties. Age is just a number. I could never understand why people get depressed when their birthday comes around. Age is going to happen and there is nothing you can do about it. Why not just embrace it and celebrate with your family and friends. As you can tell, I am not depressed of turning 40. I am curious what my forties will bring to me. I am hoping for good health and lots of love. And lots of abundance of stitches for my future projects.
I have met so many stitchers through the internet since 2003, i.e. yahoo groups, blogging and Facebook. Turning 40 is a one time thing, I want to celebrate it with all of you. What better way to do that by having a giveaway. I sure hope you like the package I put together. First let me show what this birthday package will contain to intrigue you. Here are the items.


It is a green shade but the picture is making the color gray. It is a 28 count evenweave with the size of 18 X 26 inches.



Lighthouse Welcome by Imaginating

Prairie Grove Sunflowers with DMC floss
Six skeins of Gentle Art Limited Edition Threads
Spring colors
A pair of gray stork scissors


From My Big Toe, the Frog Fob.


There are three ways you can get a chance in winning.
1. Comment on this post only if you want to be in the giveaway.
2. Become a follower on this blog.
3. Mention this giveaway on your blog. You will need to make a separate comment by providing your blog address.

The deadline to get an entry in the giveaway will be on my birthday, April 21. Around 9 pm EST, I will announce the winner and the winner will have to connect me within a week to claim the prize, or I will pick another winner after the week. If you have any questions, please ask since this is my first giveaway too. Good luck everyone!

Hi Vicky! I will be wishing you a Happy Birthday Friday on Fb so here I will just say, you are right, age is just a number. I turned 48 in December and also still feel like I'm in my 20s. I really think when my mom was 48 she was alot older! Lol Please enter me in your wonderful contest! Lots of great things there! I became a follower too (thought I already was but I guess not) and I plan to update my blog tomorrow night so I will post again here when I do. Take care & hugs! :)

Happy birthday! I'm also 40 within few years and I feel like 80 sometimes. My joints are aching especially in the morning. Maybe I should go to a doctor cause I thought this is normal and comes with age =)
