happy birthday to me... and a giveaway for you!

Yep, it's my party and I'll have a giveaway if I want to!


So, the beginning of September always brought mixed feelings for me as I was growing up... there was always my birthday to be excited about, but then there was that dreaded back to school day... and often they fell one on top of the other! Now that I'm a parent though, for some reason I look a little more forward to the beginning of September. I'm sure that you, as parents, can understand where I'm coming from!


Here at My Brown Bag Studio, it's been quite a while since I've had a little giveaway to share. And the good news for you, is if you just leave a comment on this post, you're entered! (I'm not into all the hoop jumping that often is a part of entering a giveaway)

So, thanks for your visit today... I'll draw the winner on Sept 6th... the day my girls head back to school and I head out for a celebratory mocha.

I love the owl. Do you have a pattern?

My kitties would love the perch by the window. What a creative idea.

Happy Birthday!

My birthday is in August and here in Texas it's about one week before school starts. Exciting birthday. Not so excited about school starting. I miss my posse.

Happy Birthday Kim. Hope you have a lovely day. My birthday is in August and, as a child, usually my friends were away, so a party was never in the works. As an adult, it's the same situation. Everyone's on holidays. Oh well. More wine for me.lol Enjoy your mocha.
