What a wonderful day!
This morning my niece woke me up and gave me a birthday note, I exercised (Woohoo!), I made Banana Pancakes for One (with sprinkles!),
went to garage sales with V, painted a VBS set with V, sewed and enjoyed the day. I have been blown away with the birthday greetings today on Facebook! A day that used to only be remembered by close friends and family is now remembered by a wider audience with the help of social media
In honor of my birthday I decided to host my very first giveaway on the blog. Since my title: Active Fingers is all about what I keep myself busy with, I figured it would make sense that the giveaway would be a homemade item.
I will actually be giving away two of these lovely placemat purses to two lucky people! Large enough to hold a book, wallet, keys, sunglasses and a little more. Since I brought my sewing machine back from my parents house, I have started experimenting again with sewing and I love it! I have already made myself a skirt in addition to these two bags and have fabric for more skirts (for myself and V) as well as napkins
The red bag still needs the ribbon and handles sewn on but I was eager to get this up
Here’s how you can enter for a chance to win:
1. Leave a comment…just saying hello or tell me how you enjoy spending your birthday. It is little things that make my day special. Like adding sprinkles to my pancakes or last year going out for gelato with my friends in Poland.
2. Follow/Like me on facebook (Page: Active Fingers) and leave a comment telling me you did
3. Follow me on Twitter (@activefingers) and leave a comment telling me you did
For additional entries, tweet about this giveaway (leaving a comment telling me you did) or link to it from your blog if you have one (again leaving a comment telling me that you did).
I will randomly select two winners a week from today on Thursday July 14th. And they might just find a few extra goodies tucked away in the bags
Have a great day and remember, when it is your birthday, enjoy the day wherever you are
