It's my birthday giveaway!

Yes, I was born on boxing day... so I basically have a much longer Christmas as I get presents two days in a row! But I thought this year I would share the joy of getting presents after Christmas with all my lovely readers.

I also wanted to give back some of the love and kindness I have been getting from all of you in all your lovely comments, and as an appreciation gift for following me around... the blog has now more than 200 followers, plus our Facebook, email and Pinterest readers.


So what will you get? ... well it is a surprise, as in all birthday gifts... but I can promise there will be something hand made... using a lovely fabric line... that you will be using quite often in the house...

Oh I can't help myself, here's another sneak peak...


And another one...


So if you would like to win my birthday present, all you have to do is:


  • Be a follower (here in the blog, or any other form of getting the blog updates such as Facebook, email, etc) just let me know you do; and
  • Leave me a comment on this post... you can tell me happy birthday or share your favourite birthday treat... or any odd comment you like!


Just one entry per person. Giveaway will be open until 1 January (yes I also like belated birthday wishes) and I will announce the winner shortly after that. I will ship internationally so you are all welcome to join in.


This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly.

Well I am off to have some cake and open some presents myself!

  3. Happy birthday! December is the best birthday month! The stores are always chock full of good stuff and people seem to be more giving then :D I follow in gfc. Favorite birthday treat: a fresh haircut and a day out in a cafe, just when they open, with a nice newspaper.

  7. Just close your eyes and imagine and large soft sugar cookie shaped like a cupcake. The botton is decorated like a mini quilt and the top looks like lots of pink fluffy icing. It has lots of glitter and sprinkles! Happy Happy Birthday! P.S. I'm a follower!

  26. My SIL has her birthday on Dec 23rd and I told her she should pick another throughout the year as her 'faux' birthday. That way her birthday wouldn't get lost in the Christmas festivities.

    Happy Birthday!!!

  30. Happy Birthday. I hope you have a good day. We always had a special cake for birthdays. That is -- everyone but our middle daughter. Poor thing! I was always so busy with Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations that we bought an ice cream cake from Baskin Robins for her. I actually don't think I ever made her a cake. Now she is 40 and has a family of her own, and I don't think she suffered from not having a homemade cake. But in a way, I guess I feel a little guilty:) Anyway, have a good day. rangerer@sbcglobal.net
