I have some fun things to share with you all today. I'd like to finally share some images of my Quilt Festival booth and then I am starting off 10 days of giveaways to celebrate my birthday! Yes, today is the big day. I am officially starting my last year in my 30's! Exciting and crazy to think about...when did I get this old? I want to celebrate with all you lovely blog readers and customers! So be sure to make your way to the end of this post to see the first isntallment of my 10 days of giveaways birthday celebration!
First....My Houston 2010 Quilt Festival Booth and some of the lovely folks I met.
Not so great pics of my booth! Sorry. I nearly forgot to even take these. The whole Market/Festival 2 week adventure is just a lot to juggle. So go easy on me, okay. :)
Me with the ladies from Moda Bake Shop. A sweet bunch of ladies! They were right down the aisle..about 3 booths away from me. :)
Me with Angela of the Moda/Bake Shop. What a gorgeous sweetie pie she is! I was so happy to have been able to meet her in person!
I also got to meet some of the members of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild. I think a total of 6 ladies came by and shopped at different times. I thought I had pictures with everyone, but I am realizing, once again, they were probably with their cameras, not mine. Thanks ladies for stopping by and shopping! It was such a pleasure to meet you all! :)
Me with Safieh and Amy of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild.
I do have more to share in regards to Market and Festival, but they all need a bit more work to bring the whole story through. Mostly are product reviews. I need to actually review these products before I share them with you all! :)
So let me move on to my Birthday! So those that know me well know that I.o.v.e birthdays. I love celebrating birthdays. I love giving birthday gifts. I love cake. I love it all! I have never really done a big celebration of my birthday on the blog. But this year I will!
So, since I am now 39, I will be giving away 39 things over the next 10 days. I know. Isn't this fun!!
I will kick off the celebration today with 2 of the 39 prizes. One lucky person will win an autographed copy of Amy Butler's new book Style Stitches.
I visited Amy at her booth at Quilt Market and picked up a box of her books to sell at Quilt Festival.
Me with the always cute and fabulous Amy Butler.
She kindly signed them all and off course they sold out very quickly at Festival. Luckily I put one aside and decided to hold it to share with one of my blog readers. I love this new book and it is just filled with one amazing, gorgeous bag after the next. I have a signed copy of my own as well and have already tagged half the book as must do projects!
Along with the book, the winner will also get a $20 gift certificate to my online fabric shop so they can buy some fabric to make a bag from the new book.
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post telling me what's your favorite thing to do this time of year? Of course for me, in addition to celebrating my birthday, I love to prepare for Christmas! I love going out and picking the tree. I love driving around and seeing all the decorations. And people are just often in such a cheery mood! I always feel lucky to have been born during such a festive time!
This giveaway, and all the giveaways for my birthday celebration will end on Christmas Eve. I'll close the comments that morning and then will announce winners shortly after. This will give everyone plenty of time to get here and enter for a chance to win. Plus, that way, I don't have to worry about shipping anything out until after the Holiday rush (I know, I am so clever, aren't I!).
Okay lovely folks. I wish you all a wonderful day and I look forward to reading all of your comments. :)
