Happy-Birthday-To-Me Winners!

Gosh, I've been such a terrible blogger. My own birthday celebration has been derailed. My normally loquacious person has been silenced by the everyday mundaneness of life. I don't know what happened to the rest of last week's days but they sped by like a freight train. So much for finishing up our party with cards, invitations and presents. Maybe I'll be more on the ball at the next celebration.

My birthday today has been wonderful so far. My little dd made me a picture frame out of a box, ATC protector and glue dots! lol It holds a pic she found of me at about age 7. I was so cute! She also wrote a poem about life and us and God and everything is life. I love homemade gifts! The rest of my family have made things but apparently I get them after dinner. Yay me. DH bought Turtle Temptations mix for the kids to make for dessert. I think they're like fudge, Turtle style. YUM. Dinner will be DH's famous spicy stuffed chicken. I can not wait!

Thank you to everyone who made the weeks leading up to my birthday particularly special. I've enjoyed so much all the visits, comments and well wishes. Everyone's unique ideas for how they celebrate parties are some I will incorpoate into our future celebrations. Today I have winners for you!

Celebration #1:
Altered Bottle w/Buttons -Evidence of an Artistic Life
20+ Sheets of Stickers - Monique
Fingernest Ring - Lost Luggage

Celebration #2:
Domino Magazine - MiscellaneaArts
3 Collage Sheets - Trisha Too

Celebration #3:
4 Cards - Renae
2 Bottles Crackle Paint - Paula Clare
1 set Ephemera (from Shop) - Sherry Goodloe

Celebration #4:
10 yards Ribbon - Lucy
Pile of Fabrics - Kathie
Wrist Cuff - Tina C

Celebration #5:
Game Pieces - Lily
Custom Necklace - Kris Hubick
Envelope Book - Di

Celebration #6:
Wallpaper/Wrapping Paper mix - Patti
Paper Scraps - McMuffy
Gift Tags mix - Kristin M

And finally, to end this party off with a bang, I have some lovely parting gifts:

1 & 2 - I made this altered book and bookmark for a recent Altered Pages kit. I thought I'd like to grace someone else's home with it. It has lots of extra pages in the back for someone to continue altering. If you win the bookmark, I'll include supplies for you to make some more of your own.

3 - I have 1 more set of 20+ sheets of stickers sitting around here. Some letters may be missing from some sheets, a lot of them are full and complete.

4 - Recently my crown was in Altered Arts magazine and was given a gift certificate to use in their store. I found a few things I liked but didn't spend it all. So I'm giving away a $10 GC to their store.

5 - Remember this piece I made recently? I've decided it served its purpose for me. I've pulled out the little thought papers and am giving away the art for you to keep. You can add your own memories or just hang it up as is.

6 - DH would love to get our big bedroom closet back for actual clothes instead of my collection of fabrics; and you can never have too many ribbons, so I'm giving away a combo gift of a pile of both fabric and ribbons.

7 - Finally, I'm going through my 10 large drawers of stamps (some wood mounted, some not mounted) and I'm weeding out what I don't use. The winner of this prize will receive 5 stamps from my collection. They may be used, they may be new. Either way, fun new stamps for you to use!

Winners will be picked this week sometime. I'll be back to regular posts as well.
