Surprise Birthday Giveaway!!

Yes...it's my birthday today and I wanted to celebrate by having a surprise birthday giveaway! This little fairy comes bearing a gift and she'll be the happy prize for a lucky winner! Just leave a comment (I'd love to hear about your favorite or funniest birthday memory!!) on this post and next Monday night I'll pick a winner!

Yes...it's my birthday, but it's also my little sister's birthday!! She was born 12 years ago (has it already been that long?!) on my 14th birthday. I told my mom to keep her in until later, but she didn't care enough to try. While I pouted back then, now I'm thrilled that we share the same birthday and I wish I could be with her today! Happy Birthday Suzi!! :)

Happy Birthday Crystal and Suzi!
I have two little boys (3 and 5) who were both born on the 17th (although not the same month). They tell anyone who asks that this fact makes them Wonder Brothers.
My best childhood birthday memory is getting to choose what we had for dinner that night--and the angelfood cake with chocolate icing.
Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity with us!

Happy Birthday!
My most fun birthday memory was when I was about 5 years old and my parents had a magician come to our house for my birthday party. He made two pet goldfish appear by magic and I thought that was the greatest thing ever. My brother and I named them Swimmy and Jaws.

Happy Birthday to you and your sister!
Guess what? Today is my birthday too! I am sure you would agree that Thanksgiving time is a wonderful time to have a birthday...every one is gathered together and there is usually a chocolate cake nestled in among the pumpkin and sweet potato pies...just for me! Your creations are wonderful...thank you for a chance to win! Happy Birthday! Happy Thanksgiving!
Take care, Laura

Happy birthday to you and your sister! I was born on my sister's birthday when she was 7 yo. I didn't think it was so cool when I was younger but now I feel really special about sharing a birthday with my big sis!! xo, suzy

you are so darn cute.
happy birthday to you!!
my 15th birthday was spent
trapped in a car with my
very "i'm 15 and you are
so uncool" family. we
were traveling back from
california, and i was
finally legal to get a
driver's permit, but nooooo
i was stuck in the car with
them, and they were stuck
with me...and i let them
know it. and i want you to know
i am very ashamed of my
teenager behavior. then, to make matters even worse, my little sister
had done a report on
utah. so we had to tour
the utah state capitol building. on my 15th birthday.
happy*happy day!

Oh that's adorable! Happy Birthday! My favorite b-day memory was my 21st. My friends and I went to Atlantic City. It was and has been the only trip there so far where I actually won some money! Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Crystal! Happiest of birthdays to you and your sister!I can't remember any hilarious birthday stories...must be a slight case of memory loss! Too many candles on my cake, I guess! I hope your birthday is the start of the best year ever!

Happy, Happy Birthday Crystal! May the day be filled with fun and merriment!
birthday memory is escaping me.....too many to count.

Happy Happy Birthday one day late to you and your sister! That's pretty remarkable--and a sure sign of connectedness.
My best birthday ever was my 40th. I wanted a pajama party--so all the guests had to come in their pajamas. We played games like twister, foose ball, ouiji and had a roaring fire in the backyard to make smores and a big tent filled with pillows and blankets and a psychic who read each guests future. It was a big hit!!! And a great birthday--try it for your 40th!

Happy Birthday Crystal and Suzi. I love your designs, Crystal. Very unique, and I would love your little yellow angel. Best wishes for a special day!

Belated birthday wishes, Crystal to you and your sister. I share a birthday with my twin brother. My mom always made each of us our own cake and we got to have a Coke-a-cola!!! Special memories.
I would love to win your ornament. I will keep my finger crossed until Monday.

I love that you wanted your Mom to keep your sister in a little longer. My birthday is New Years Eve. One year my parents left me with a babysitter so they could go out, and they told me they were going out to celebrate my birthday with their friends, but I had to stay home. haha Have a wonderful day
xxoo Valarie

Happy Birthday Again Crystal!
I left a comment on your special day but I have another birthday memory to share. I had the best birthday party when I was 8. My friends and I dressed up as hobos: overalls, tattered flannel shirts, coal on the face. My mom found an old boxcar (I grew up in a small town in Maine) and we ate our picnic inside. My mom wrapped each of our lunches up in a bandana that she tied onto a stick. Then we played lots of silly games on the tracks. So much Fun! I hope your day was too.
