My Birthday Give Away

So this past week I turned 26! I’m getting closer to 30!!!!! Aacccckkkkk! lol. Just kidding ;) I’m not worried. In honor of this event, I wanted to give a gift to some of the readers of Happy Together. Here are 5 things that are up for grabs:

1. Purse made with Heather Bailey Fabric

My Birthday Give Away

The first two are purses I have made. They have my old etsy store’s label in them, but they are still super cute :) The last three are neck warmers I made from fleece. Pretty simple to make. Cut rectangular pieces, shirr long ways in a few places, and then add a pretty pin to hold it all together.

How to enter:

1. Leave a comment. Let me know which one you would like in order. For instance, “my favorites in order are 3,1,5,4,2.”

****Make sure there is some way I can contact you. If you email if not in your bio, please leave it in your comment*****

2. For a second chance, leave a seperate comment saying you that follow my blog (only if you do though! no liars ;). This can be through blogger, google reader, email, feeds, etc. Just let me know how you follow…

***This give away will stay open until Friday, December 11.***

    Jessica, Happy Birthday! I just turned 25 and thought wow…I’m 5 years from 30! :) My best friend Emily turned me on to your blog a while ago and I love it. I am making the journal cover you made for your husband for my sister for this Christmas, I am making 5 of them for her to use at college! I love all that you do and hope to make your clothes for my little girls (when I have them) someday! My favorites are 1,5,3,4,2. Thanks for doing what you do!

  37. says

    First of all Happy Birthday. I turned 40 last week so I would say you have the BEST years ahead of you! Don’t stress turning 30 you are still a few years away.

    Next, I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! In the SYTYC I always tried to see if I could pick your craft out and vote. I was pretty good at it but the last one stumped me. I thought it was the recycled shirt skirt since you are so famous for doing those.

    You are very talented and inspire a lot of my crative side! Take care and hope you had a wonderful birthday. My pick is 1,2,4,3,5 Love the purse idea!! Your fan Shelly

  38. says

    Happy birthday! I’m turning 26 myself in this coming year, and I agree that it sounds odd to be “rounded up” to 30. I don’t feel that old! You’re so much more accomplished than I am, though. Ack!
