My Birthday Giveaway!

Yep, it's that time of year again, kids! It's my birthday! Woohoo! And while that's good for me, it's even better for you, because it means you have the chance to win three fun little handmade goodies that you can keep and enjoy or use to fill someone else's stocking. It's a win-win for everyone.

Let's start with the prizes:

Here's the sweet little prize pack--three items made just for one lucky winner. Included are:

A pair of Santa Skully knee socks. I didn't make the socks (those striped goodies came from Target), but I made and sewed on the holiday appliques.

One handknit bird named Holly. She stands about 6-8 inches and is decked out with her own personal (and removable) scarf, because, birdie, it's cold outside!

And for those days when you want to dress like your birdie, it's your very own blue/purple scarflette complete with silver polka dot buttons.

How to play:
One winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator. All entries must include an email address or someway for me to contact you. If you don't, I'll have to draw again. There are lots of ways to enter, and lots of ways to get even more entries. For each thing you do, leave a separate comment to let me know.
  1. Leave a comment letting me know your favorite kind of birthday cake/birthday treat. (one entry)
  2. Subscribe/become a follower of my blog--it's the link at the bottom of all the right side links. (one entry--if you're already a follower, let me know and you still get an extra entry)
  3. Tweet about my contest, and be sure to include @carrieg777 so that I can keep track. (one entry)
  4. Blog about it! (three entries...leave three separate comments each with the URL of the contest posting)
So what are you waiting for! Let's play. The winner will be announced midweek...once my birthday buzz has fizzled out. Good luck!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

My favorite birthday thing is actually pie, any kind of fruit pie. One of the funniest was the year my mom made me a blueberry and peach pie, and we decided that it could be called a bleach pie.

Oh- duh! Forgot to mention my favorite b-day treat! My birthday is in July so last year I requested a rhubarb pie instead of a cake. YUM. And I've subscribed to your blog.

My favorite kind of birthday cake isn't around anymore, becuase the bakery I used to get it at closed, but it was a lemon raspberry cake. It was wonderful! I miss it.

Happy birthday! Personally, I've grown up with mostly Korean fruit cream cakes that are oh so delicious and much lighter than their American counterparts. So yummy!

I remember wanting carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting for my birthday cake for many years growing up, or red velvet cake, which was appropriate, since my birthday is Christmas Day. I haven't made a red velvet cake in years...maybe it's time to make one for myself this year.

Mimi said...

Happy Birthday :oD

It's my birthday in a few days, too, so I know exactly what kind of treat I am most looking forward to at the moment. My brothers have just turned the age where they have been able to save a little bit of money for the first time, which they mostly spend on videogames and the like, but this year they have, for the first time, gone out alone to pick and buy me a birthday gift. i have no idea what it might be, but I cannot wait.

Nicole said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday treat is frosting. Cake's good, sure, but frosting roses are the best things EVER. And frosting that doesn't come off of a bakery cake does NOT taste the same. I'm kind of a frosting snob like that.

Hope your birthday and holidays are fabulous.

Fuji Mama said...

I LOVE moist carrot cake with TONS and TONS of cream cheese frosting. Mmmmm...or ANYTHING chocolate.
