The Birthday Blog Give Away!

I was so inspired by Teresa's birthday bash and Jillene's giveaway (which I won) , plus many more tokens of blogging love, that I had to copy, copy, copy. Combine that desire with kind of a crappy Sunday (that means I for sure lost my temper, ate way too much chocolate, was an hour late for church, and drank a Diet Coke well before 10:00 am)
and a need to feel creative, and that equals my GIVEAWAY!

I sat surrounded by copies of Somerset Studios and
Sally Jean's Pretty Little Things






and in spite of my rotten, terrible, horrible,
no good very bad day,
I felt happy
.
(take note crafting haters!)
Now you can cash in on my joy and my birthday
(which is all about presents, right?)

Here is the prize, in honor of cupcake lovers everywhere, as well as those of us who love our life, even on the kind of sucky days. One handmade charm for your jingling pleasure.


The front features a proper lady, much like yourself, about to partake of her cupcake. It reads The sweet life. The back says "don't forget to lick the bowl" (also known as my advice to grown women across the world).
Comes on a ribbon, but you can hook it to a chain or cord, if you like. These are great on a chunky necklace, hanging from your rear view mirror, or tied to your handbag, but stay away from key chains- the glass has been known to shatter when tossed to and fro. Hand made by ME so imperfections are considered artsy. (that's what I tell myself).

Just leave me a comment to have an automatic entry for this lovely charm. If you think this deserves a little more than one feeble entry, then in your next post or sidebar link up to a post of mine that you think others might enjoy. That will earn you 2 extra entries.

I know people think this is mere bribery, and even though it kind of is, I was so excited when I got my necklace from my winning entry that I had to share the love. Plus, who else would enjoy my creations?

I will keep the entries open until Friday night, November 7, or Saturday morning when I stumble out of bed. Good Luck!

Pick me!!!! I'm having a crappy day as well. Pick me!!!!

Erin said...

My new mantra is going to be "imperfections are just considered artsy." That's a great way of looking at things! I hope your day is a little better this evening.

Whitney R said...

Mommy Madness said...

Teresa said...

These are some of the cutest you've done. If I don't win, I want to come over and make one. I've always wanted to use a sodering gun (is that what you call it?) Hope I win.

Happy B-day in the morning. Have a great breakfast with Janna. I'll be thinking of you as I watch BYU students pretending to be teachers. Sniff...sniff.

Shannon said...

Those are so cute! I wanna make some more.
I hope you're feeling better :) I'm sad to hear you felt crappy.
I'll see ya in a couple weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marie said...

I wanna WIN, SO CUTE!!
I think you should teach a class! It would be so much fun if we could put something together like a "swap-talents" night every month!
Of-course some talents we couldn't swap..wink-wink
What do you think???
See ya tommorow!

Well, since you are playing a remake of "I need a Hero" AND I just made a Top Gun reference in my 3 Rants and a Rave post for tomorrow...I HAVE to enter, because it must be some kind of sign...

clan of the cave hair said...

I made you a "Imperfections are just Artsy" button...only problem, is I'm lame and I don't know how to give it to you! LOL

ramsam said...

A birthday gift already? Yay!

I am going to try to email you.... maybe you can just send me the graphic for now so I can at least stick it on my sidebar.

Hey, sign me up for the drawing, birthday-girl. I'll be celebrating your birthday on Thursday with texas sheet cake and ice cream and a "salon" party and everything. Oh no, wait, that one's for my daughter's birthday. But we'll be thinking of you. She's turning 12. So you're almost like twins, right?

Clan of Cave cousin--my filter doesn't like photobucket. So I can't even see the button! sad!

ramsam said...

I am so excited about this I wan one!
Oh wait, I made two so I CAN have one! Sometimes I amaze myself.

Danielle said...

Weird, I had a similar Sunday!!! My car got towed with my baby seat in it, I missed church entirely for the first time in years, I wanted to drink a gigantic Dr. Pepper before noon, but resisted because the night before I ate about 2000 calories for dinner alone... and then went to Cold Stone. The man who towed my car did not take check so I had to get cash.

I feel your pain.

I love the charm. so pretty.

Danielle said...

Oh and then to top it off, when I got home Sunday night, my house alarm had gone off. We are not sure if someone broke in or not. Then, I threw my phone I was so mad... and my mom ran over the battery. And when I started my son's bath, the bathwater was brown. I went to bed early.

Happy Birthday, though! :)

ramsam said...

Danielle! You threw your phone in anger! Are we related and I don't know it?

Kristen said...

Hey girl! I love, love, love your charms. And I love your blog!!! Thanks for being so real- you can't help it if your life puts the rest of us to shame. Happy birthday! love ya!

Annette said...
