Wednesday, July 20

A Thank you

How was your Wednesday today? Today was my birthday, I'm another year older, another year wiser;)  My hubby took the day off today which made my birthday even more special.  Usually we wouldn't but he thought it would be nice to spend it together, much nicer than being at work.  We've had a quiet day at  home making bread, doing craft, sitting chatting and eating pizza, simple just the way I like it.  Tonight on the menu was Creamy Corny Chowder with no knead bread and Apple Berry Crumble with ice cream cooked by my family.

To celebrate my birthday today I wanted to have a little giveaway to thank you, my wonderful friends for stopping by and for always giving me lots to smile about with your kind words. Included in my giveaway is:
♥ A Japanese craft book called Hello Sandwich which has lots of great gift wrapping ideas which I bought on Saturday in Nook.
♥ Three handmade red crochet flowers
♥ Some twine
♥ A vintage cotton spool
♥ A cute little handmade owl softie
♥ Some fabric tape
♥ Some handmade doily gift tags
♥ Six handmade kraft gift bags
♥ Two handmade washi tape pegs
♥ Some handmade stickers
To keep it fair I'm making the giveaway open to followers of my blog only and one entry per person.  New followers are always welcome to join, I always enjoy meeting new people.  I'll keep the giveaway open till next Wednesday the 27th of July.  Good luck everyone!

Have a terrific Thursday
