Happy Birthday! :) My favorite celebration was last year, when my son's pinata wouldn't break and my husband took a big old whack at it. It was just hilarious and out of character for him. :)

Oh, and I follow you on Pinterest, as you know. :)

Happy Birthday, friend!

Hi Stephanie, wow Happy Birthday to you dear friend! My fondest memory of a birthday was 6 years ago when I turned the big 50 and my wonderful husband threw a huge party for me with family and friends at a restaurant in NYC! I loved it and it was so much fun. You know I'm following you in all ways and wishing you many more happy birthdays. Enjoy your birthday week and have fun celebrating.
Julie

Arty Tea said...

I forgot to mention, my fave birthday celebrations...are not my own, but that of my 3 children. BTW, that is when I celebrate Mother's Day, too...on my children's birthdays. And on my own birthday, I celebrate my Mother...for it was she who gave me life:) Aloha

Debby Ray said...

Well Happy Birthday, Miss Stephanie! Oh,to be 39 again....I would probably do a few things differently! My favorite birthday had to be the time my son came home from college to surprise me. He put himself in a big garbage bag and rang the doorbell. When I opened the door (it was dark outside), I turned on the light and peeked out the door to find this huge bag on my back deck. Needless to say, I was petrified. When I got brave enough to open the door, I gave the bag a slight push with my foot and out he jumped at me! OMGosh! I wanted to slap him and hug him all at the same time! Sweet birthday blessings to you :)

Have a wonderful birthday on 2nd!
What a nice giveaway, but please don't enter me as I have been lucky enough to have several recent wins.

Maryann said...

Happy Birthday Stephanie, I hope you enjoy your day. Would love to participate in your giveaway.
One of my favorite birthday celebrations was when my husband turned 60. All guests were asked to write down a favorite memory of my husband (could include a photo) or how he may have encouraged them through the years. The best part of the evening is when out of state son showed up to surprise him.

Anne Payne said...

Happy Birthday, lovely Stephanie! I know you will have a blessed week celebrating. I love all the pink. Yes, I do.
I follow you all over, you know that ;)

I was trying to make a fabric flower yesterday and had pulled up one of your older posts where you are explaining how to do it. My flower was coming along nicely until I sat it down somewhere and now I can't find it. :)

Sylvia said...

Have a happy birthday,Stephanie, everything is so pretty and lovingly made by you. Pink is a favorite of mine.
hugs my friend,
Sylvia

I hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

I follow you by email.

My favorite birthday was my 39th. I was working and Hubby was laid off. I was putting in some extra hours to pay for some things for the kids school needs and we did not have any extra money for anything. I came home to a nice dinner made by Hubby and the kids and a sweet little birthday cake that they all made. First ever.

Kati said...

One of my favorite birthday celebrations is at each birthday party we go around the room and name one thing that we love or appreciate about the birthday person. It's so special to see what everyone says.

(And I follow you through GFC.)

Debbie Harris said...

Happy Birthday Dear Stephanie!
Those are beautiful gifts you are so kindly giving away. I love that pink tea cup embellishment on the tag, cute!
I have been blessed with many wonderful birthdays, because I have two daughters that look after me well.
But I remember my 40th (15 years ago) being my favorite. It was a surprise and my mother did the decorations up gorgeous, all in purple with tons of balloons and flowers. She knows how to decorate! I believe I know someone who takes after her (wink).
Have a blessed day!
Much love, Mom

Deborah Montgomery said...

Happy birthday on the 2nd Stephanie! I'm following you on Google+, have you in my blog sidebar, and following on Pinterest. So many lovely birthday memories, but one of my favorite was when my sister surprised me on my 50th when she flew in from out of state with her brand-new baby!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Happy Birthday Stephanie! I'm an April baby too (the 11th). Your giveaway is beautiful! I love that vintage fabric. :)

as the Momma to 6 girls, this is our prayer that they will await God's timing and serve HIM until the Lord brings the special one for them, bless you both for that and thank you for sharing! We also have two sweet son's :) Yes, 8 blessings! Smile
My birthday is always special, however 21 years ago my sister had her last son and we share a birthday now so it's always a sweet treat!

I am a follower. I had a special birthday celebration this year. I went on a Disney cruise with my best friend for both our birthdays. We were on the ship for both of our days. Although it was truly a special birthday, I missed being with my husband, kids and grandkids. Happy Birthday to you.

Happy Birthday my dear Stephanie - what a fabulous giveaway to celebrate - hope that you have a fabulous time. My favourite birthday celebration was for Lexie's 5th birthday when she had a princess party - it was so sweet seeing her and her little friends all dressed up and so pretty in their princess outfits.
Can I be included in your giveaway I understand if you are restricting this to the USA. I know that postage costs are high.
Hugs
Kate

Happy, happy birthday dear Stephanie. I'm your Facebook and Google friend follower and happily and thankfully your friend. I'm thinking of birthdays spent with my dear friend, Barbara. Her birthday was two days before mine and we'd join with another friend who had a birthday on the day between our birthdays. What a wonderful and sweet time.

Some lucky winner should be very pleased with this win.

lynn said...

Actually I love my own birthday even though it makes me older because my daughter never fails to shower me with gifts and I think I deserve them for all I do for my grandson. I am kinda kidding but not really. Hee

Wanda said...

I just posted a comment, and poof, it was gone... will try again.

Happy Birthday come Wednesday. What a lovely thing to do on your birthday..thinking of others. I had a friend years ago that did this, and I always thought it was the sweetest thing ever.

But then that's what you are... I appreciate the tip from Diana, as I'm following you now by Google and fb.

Would be honored if I were to win this treasure from your hands and heart.

Sending Hugs and smiles.

Vicky Hunt said...

Such a sweet giveaway Stephanie! One of my most memorable birthdays was several years ago when my daughter and I flew to NYC with her Girl Scout troop for a few days. We worked hard raising money for a year to take the trip and we arrived there on my birthday. At dinner that night, they had the waiter bring me a piece of cake and everyone sang to me! So sweet...:) I follow you on Pinterest and Facebook too and love everything you pin. Such lovely things! Have a blessed evening and Happy Early Birthday!
Blessings, Vicky

Happy Birthday, Stephanie! April is such a wonderful month! An interesting birthday tidbit... because my birthday is in December, my mother would always put up a little Christmas tree in my room to see when I woke up that day!

Alex said...

Hello, Stephanie ~ you make everything look so pretty!
I hope you have a wonderful birthday full of blessings and fun.
One of the best birthday celebrations I've ever been to was one I organised for my husband's 40th...a day trip to the Isles of Scilly from Penzance in Cornwall, UK, where we lived then. It was a complete surprise for him (the kids managed not to blurt it out on the way :) )...he didn't guess until we drove right onto the heliport! We nearly missed our flight back, later, but that's another story...it was exciting, and so beautiful.


Deborah said...

The best birthdays these days are those I celebrate for my grand-daughters. They are 8 and 12. It is always a special day and you can feel the excitement in the air as the house is being decorated for the special event. Daddy even gets in on the preparation of the wonderful day by making the birthday meal...so much fun is had by everyone!

Deborah said...

Oh, and I am following you on Pinterest and Facebook. :-)

Melanie said...

Happy Birthday Stephanie! Hope that you have a lovely day!

What a lovely giveaway! Love everything you have here, that will be a very lucky winner! I follow your blog and an now foloowing you on Facebook and Pinterest!

My favorite birthday memory isn't about my birthday, it was my daughter's first birthday. I remember how she looked at the birthday cake, then she looked at me. She smakced her sweet little lips and stuck her little finger in the icing! We all laughed so hard. I have a picture of her as she is about to stick her finger in the icing, so precious to me!

Tilda H said...

Happy happy birthday. I love birthdays too!
I am following you now on the follow me link, following Pinterest, and Facebook.

Okay so my favorite birthday ever......my hubby and I share the same birthday (it's coming up) and our daughters, both special needs, got up and made us breakfast in bed! The kitchen clean up is another story but all in all it was watching their sweet faces and how proud they were.....awesome birthday.

Mary said...

Happy, Happy Birthday sweet Stephanie. Hope your special day is full of God's Blessings! Your give-away items are so sweet, I think any of your followers would love to have them.
