5 + 32 = a giveaway

I've never done a giveaway before but this is a week for celebrating. Today the good old blog turns 5 years old, I turn 32 years old, and Twin turns 32 years old too (funny how that happens).

It's so funny for me to go back and read my oldest posts--how much things have changed, how much they have stayed the same. I don't think I had any idea when I started this blog how much it would mean to me. But when I think of all the talented, kind people I have met here, and how much the blog has inspired and motivated me to create and explore, I am amazed. And very grateful.

As a thank-you, I'll be sending a box of sewing goodies to someone. Three vintage dress patterns (size 12), some assorted fabrics, woven trim, vintage buttons, and a set of my gocco-printed cards. There is also a bag full of 2" square fabric pieces that I cut for a quilt and never sewed together. It all comes in a homemade fabric box.

So leave me a comment and I will choose a random winner this Friday, April 8. And now I will sing happy birthday to my blog:

happy birthday little bloggy
happy birthday dear sweet bloggy
happy BIRTHday good old thing you
and you smell like one too

Happy birthday to you and to twin! I'm so glad that blogging brought us together a few years back and am always in awe with the beautiful things you create.

Oh - please don't count me in on the giveaway... sewing supplies would be wasted on me.

Sending you warm (and windy!) Birthday Wishes to you and your beautiful blog from somewhat sunny California!

P.S. Thank you for letting me know the details about the Weekender bag fabric! I ordered a sample, and can't wait to order yards of it!
