It's my birthday - let's party!

East of Wissant
Bonjour!! It's my birthday. Woop! Suuure, I'm getting older and all that, but I still like birthdays. :-)

Anyway - enough about little (old) me - yesterday I mentioned some give away type stuff and now I'm going to tell you (almost) all about it!

You see, in the middle of May it's my blog anniversary - 5 years! Although, I've actually been blogging since 2003, but that's a different story.. In the past 5 years I have met some truly amazing, lovely, funny, cool and talented people through this blog. I have asked some of those awesome people if they would help me celebrate my birthday, but especially the blogaversary (is that even a word?) with me and with you.

And they said yes! Which is so amazing! Oh I knew they were kind and generous people, but I don't know all of them *that* well, so I am completely blown away by the extent of their generosity. They all deserve a big squishy thank-you hug! By they way, the general kindness of the crafty bloggy people is one of THE best things about blogging. You know, in case you didn't know already. :-)

Ok, so this what's going to happen: starting tomorrow (April 27) I'll post a new give away every day (almost) and then on May 16 (my blogaversary) I'll announce all the winners. Now that's a party, huh? Goodness me, I am so excited!

Here is just a wee teaser of who is helping me celebrate: PlanetJune, Follow the White Bunny, Craftypod, Painted Fish Studio and Aimee Ray.
