Birthday Celebration Giveaway!

I've been working almost non-stop for the past three days - packing away and sorting more stuff, spackling, taping, changing cabinet hardware and even threw in a little gardening. We have a handyman coming next weekend to begin painting and making small improvements and repairs around the house. I really feel like progress is being made! The only downside is that I'm a bit behind in reading my blogs and posting, but hope to catch up in a couple of days. I have an out of town training all day tomorrow, but will be back to a somewhat normal schedule on Wednesday!

Next Sunday is another anniversary of my 30th birthday. What better way to celebrate than to offer a giveaway for you! Just leave a comment on this post or any other post this week through midnight January 24th, and be eligible for a jelly roll from Moda's Collection for a Cause Heritage, a jelly roll pattern with the very strange name of Strip Search, by G.E. Designs of Iceland (must be Icelandic humor!) and a fun new tool, The Little Gripper for all of those small templates you work with!

Funny...strip search! Happy Anniversary of your birthday. I'll have to remember that. I decided once I hit a "certain age" I'm going to start counting backwards. You're always so generous with your giveaways!

Happy Birthday Candace! May you be 30 many more times! :)

Do you have a German heritage? They give out presents on their birthdays rather than receiving them.
