A Very Merry Unbirthday To You...

Today is the big day...MY birthday! I'm such a dork about birthdays. I love 'em. They're a big deal. They sure beat the alternative (NOT having birthdays). I drag them out for as long as I can every year. AND, my birthday is far enough away from Christmas that I don't get "lumped" presents! Yay for me!

This year, I'm celebrating (55) by giving gifts to YOU! I'm going to choose FIVE names for my Followers Only Birthday Giveaway today. All you have to do is 1) be a follower that I can see on my list, and 2) leave a comment before midnight tonight. I'll announce the winners in my Friday post!
Each of the five giveaway winners will receive a prototype of my new Brynwood Needle Keeps. These are my trial keeps. I've been working out the bugs, so these not perfect (some of you who know me are running for smelling salts right now), but I do know that these are the only ones that will have these lovely brown velvet ribbons on them. I'm changing to satin ribbons for the rest. Each has my name label front and back (I'm still debating which label to name or Brynwood); two pockets on the inside, as well as wool felt for storing your needles; and inside, my Brynwood acorn charm as the finishing touch.

Watch the video, leave a comment (I'd love to know what you think of them) and I'll be back tomorrow (full of cake!!!) to announce the winners. A verrry merrry unbirthday to YOU!

God blessed me with the gift of you ,HOW MANY years ago, HAHAHAHA, and a beautiful baby you were, my pride and joy.
How ironic that you chose "Alice" and the footage we saw, I played "Alice in Wonderland," at least a hundred years ago, loved it and you. Wish I could be there to share your day with tea and lovely cakes..LOVE YOU, Mum.
