Thirty WHAT ?!?

Happy Birthday To.....Me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's my birthday.....however.....ONE of you will be receiving the gift.

A customized Sweet Birdy handtowel.

If you win you choose the color combination.....and a sweet birdy towel will be on her way to you.
How do you win?
Leave me a comment telling me if we were the BEST of friends ....what gift under $20.00 (because I would love a new mercedes...but let's be fair.....) you would give to me.

On Sunday I will choose the gift I would most like to receive and yes I will be completely honest....and the imaginary buyer of that gift.....wins the towel.
What happens if 2 of you buy me the same gift that I want the most.....I will resort to the old name draw.
So let's go !!!!! Some real gifts I have received from friends......
My Best friend Amy found this jewel in my etsy favorites and sent it my way.....if you have not checked out Fallon's pillows at Olive.....go NOW !!
I love this beauty.

and....from on of my 2 virtual best friends....Shelly at Lemon Tree......once again she sends the kinds of cuties you don't wanna unwrap.

a box....slam full of crafting goodies !!!!!
I have all intentions of using most of this for my personal scrapbooking.....thanks so much Shelly Belly.......You are a Treasure !!!!
Oh yea...and there is a GREAT sale in the shop Today too....
don't forget to comment....
have a happy day
Pin It!

You would open a present..... i would have made you a joxlette for the bow....and inside would be a home made giftie card for etsy..something for your new home... remember..the movers are at your house... and by then our people watching the kiddos would probably want in on some cake...... my love language is gifts of time...and something handmade..is that a language??
So Happy Imaginary Birthday!!

hmmm....20 bucks, eh? How about 20$1.00 scratch off lottery tickets......and if ya win, you don't have to share with me! Sweet of me, isn't it?

traci said...

Oh jeeeez I want to win that birdie towel. This is fun but kinda, sorta hard.
If you were my best friend I would make you a yummy lunch with chicken salad sandwiches on croussant bread with fruit smoothies, topped off with a cake by me (Im great a cakes by the way).
The gift itself would be a 20.00 gift certificate to that fabulous pillow store on etsy....omgosh, what fabulous pillows and with such cute ones you need more than one...right? By the way...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Dayna said...

Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!! I think I would probably buy you a subscription to a magazine, such as Martha Stewart or a scrapbooking mag! It's the gift that you get every month for a year! What could be better!?!?!?
Again HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Amy Bell said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!
Well let me think, I'm a thrift store junkie so I would get you a bunch of items and fill up a goodie box with things like material, rick-rack,lace,candles, a good book and anything crafty I could fine. Then I would bake you a red velvet cake!
Hope you have a great B-day!
Blessings, Karen

i would take you over to my elderly neighbor's home. WHY?? because she told me she has a whole buncha stuff she wants to get rid of (things like her bird house collection, antique tea towels, vintage tea cups, needlepoint hangings, box of fabric scraps, spools of ribbon & lace, and some unused target giftcards she never used simply because, "what can a ol' lady like me possible want at target?"! but w/ that $20, i'd buy you a prescription of xanax to calm you down from all this excitement!!
happy birthday!

Justine said...

Hey April!

It looks like we are both lovely leos! My birthday was August 4th :)

For your birthday I would send you a paper pack from the new line from Sassafrass Lass called POCKET FULL OF POSIES! [as soon as it's released]

It's so lovely and if the 12x12 paper pack is not under $20 then I'd get your the 8x8 or 6x6 paper pack and some great fibers!

Happy Belated Birthday April!
30? You are still just a baby...*smiles*

What about a $20 gift card from Target!!

Have a great day!

Karen~

breanna said...

happy birthday!

i don't really know you at all (except for secretly reading your blog everyday for the last few months)so i don't guess i could be super impressive or on-the-nose with a gift...

but i LOVE giving magazine subscriptions as gifts...it keeps giving for a whole year! so, for you, i might choose rachael ray magazine, lots of delicious recipes and beautiful points of inspiration.

Polka Dot Moon said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!

Well, my favorite thing to give my friends is from "Origins" and it's called "Birthday Suit" - a wonderful, silky spray you use right out of the shower and it smells awesome :) and I would also give you some "Peace of Mind" gumballs from there as well.
I love giving aromatherapy goodies!

Trish said...

I've been thinking and thinking of what I would like to receive and what I've realized is that while there are many things I'd like, gift cards and such... nothing would mean as much to me as time with my family and friends. So, my gift to you would be a birthday party. It would have to be a potluck (to keep cost under $20.00), and all of the guests would be instructed to bring one of your favorites. Envision, chicken fajitas, chips and salsa, cotton candy, pie and of course a big ole birthday cake! My actual physical gift to you would be a collage/scrapbook of all of the pictures from your party!

Happy (belated) Birthday!!!!

Zo-Be Designs said...

Welcome to the 30s! It's great, believe me : )

Hmmm, what would I give you....well, I would probably make you a picture frame, since that's my new found craft passion. And I would bake you the carrot cake cookies I just posted about last night. They are tooooo die for!!!

Happy birthday to you!!!
