Five 'til Fifty!

I have been MIA in blog land this week, but with good reason. I was focusing on getting some things done for next week.

What is going on next week, you ask?

Five days of giveaways! I'm calling it Five 'til Fifty!, since I will be turning 50 on August 10th.

It's my way of giving back to all of you creative people who have inspired me and helped me learn through your amazing projects, tutorials, tips, information, and yes, even mistakes.

So, starting next Monday, I will have one giveaway per day Monday through Friday. All you have to do is leave a comment on the giveaway day to be entered for that day's giveaway. You don't have to follow, you don't have to blog about it (but feel free to do so if you feel like it). No hoops to jump through. Just say hi in the comments section and that's it. Come back each day to see the next giveaway, and leave a comment on that post if you want to be entered for it. One entry per person per day. Please include your email address in your comment if it's not available on your profile or if you're set to "no reply" or commenting anonymously.

You can comment on any or all of the giveaways through noon Central time on Sunday, August 8th. I'll post winners on Monday, August 9th. Then on August 10th...well, I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday!

Here is a sneak peak at Monday's giveaway:

And here's a peak at next Friday's:

So that's some of what I've been working on. And for you vintage lovers and collectors, there will be Pyrex...

I hope to see you back next week. It should be fun!

I'll be linking to Sew & Tell Friday at amylouwho. Can't wait to see what you've been up to!

But I'm going to be off line next week- because of the tilers - This is so not fair !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I'm going to wish you a Happy Birthday in advance and go off somewhere to pout. I really do hope you have a lovely birthday P.

I am so pleased to see how you have structured your b'day celebration give-aways. That's how I like to do give aways, then they go to bloggers who are regular visitors, I love that idea, no coercion! I figure if I have to bribe someone to be a follower then I am not much of a leader,LOL!
Nice to meet another quilting blogger,"P"!
