Day 6: dark green giveaway and light green winner

We're halfway through!

First, the light green winner:
Lori, who said: "I'd like to not have to use my sewing room as guest room too. Without the full size bed I'd have a lot more room to work."

Congratulations, Lori! I've sent you an email to get your mailing address.

Now, onto the dark green. Here we go:

As you may have guessed by the fact that there are 2 green and 2 blue giveaways, my color preference tends to learn toward those two colors. :)


Today is my sister's birthday (Hi Jenn!). In honor of her big day, to enter to win the dark green bundle, simply leave a comment telling me about the best birthday gift you've either given or received. The giveaway will remain open until 11:59 EST tonight (December 7th). I'll post the winner's name tomorrow, along with the light blue bundle photo and question. This giveaway is now closed. Click here for the next giveaway, the light blue bundle. 
Good luck!
p.s. If you're wondering what this is all about, read my original post here. And then stop by tomorrow for the light blue giveaway!

  8. My daughter was born on my birthday. She was 2 weeks early, so we were all a bit surprised, but definitely my best present ever. Thanks for the opportunity on the draw.

  9. This year I turned 50 and my brother (whose birthday is the same day as mine but he's 8 years older!) gave me a voucher for a spa treatment (facial and full body massage) followed by lunch with him. It was a lovely day out and something to remember my 50th by!

  11. The best birthday gift was my granddaughter Alexis. She stretched out delivery for two more days so she could also be my mom's gift and still have her own day. Being present during her birth was a glorious belated birthday present!

  12. Best birthday present was given to me by my mom - a pewter button picture frame which was made from real cast buttons! Just before she went through chemo she managed to go shopping and bought it for my 26th birthday knowing I LOVE buttons. Mom passed away a month after my birthday so it is a really special picture frame.

  15. The best birthday gift I received was the original Kindle. My husband kept it a secret from me so I was very surprised. Our sons were in on the surprise so I felt very blessed.

  16. When my youngest was away at college she thought we were not going to make it to see her for her birthday. I ordered pizza and pop to be delivered to her dorm floor for all her friends. She thought that was it. I had a cake delivered and instead of candles, I had rolled up and taped five dollar bills (19) of them. Then right after the cake was brought in we came in. She was so happy to see us and said it was the best birthday ever.

  17. Happy Birthday, Jenn! My husband used to always give me tickets to see a game opening weekend for the Atlanta Braves. Although the gift may have been as much for him as me, we always had a wonderful time on those memorable trips :-)

  25. I can't remember a special birthday gift as we usually don't do anything except say Happy Birthday and go out to dinner but this year we did pull off a great birthday surprise for my niece. It was her 25th, because of business trip she was four hours away from the family, alone and stuck in a hotel room with no one to take her out to dinner. I called the whole family and laid out my plan, lets drive down and surprise her. We left very early the next morning and drove the four hours. The hotel manager helped us by going to the room on some excuse while we all hid against the walls. When she opened the door and we jumped out saying Happy Birthday she freaked! It was perfect! She started crying and just kept saying, "Best Birthday EVER!"

  27. The best birthday gift I ever received was for my 13th birthday. My mom took me to the movie theater to see Sound of Music. The thing that was awesome about that was our church frowned on attending movie theaters. I will always remember it.

  32. My best birthday gift was given to me by a bunch of my friends many, many years ago. They hired a hunky male dancer to dance for me at the night club we used to frequent. I was sitting on a chair in the middle of the dance floor while the dancer did his thing. Oh my, was I ever embarrassed, but I sure enjoyed it. : )
