Hey, all of you bloggers out there! It's coming up on my 40th birthday (gasp!). For some reason, I didn't have any issues with 30, but 40 is freaking me the heck out. I am trying to focus on the positive though, like my recent lifestyle changes to get healthier, my financial independence, upcoming trips, and my awesome friends and family. In fact, the generosity for my birthday has already started. My birthday is not until March 14th, but my cousin is already planning on taking me snow tubing over the weekend of the 17th. Another friend and I are going to NYC in April to celebrate both of our birthdays, and she has done a large portion of the planning (that's a bigger gift to me than I can express, let me tell you). Another friend just bought me the 12 new copics! Still others are just entertaining me and trying to convince me that 40 is not the halfway mark of my life and I am not old.
Anyway, with all of that generosity flying towards me, I figure I'll pay some of it forward. So, I'm putting together a RAK for my birthday. I'm trying to include a bunch of my favorite crafty things, and maybe some not-so-crafty fun stuff, too. So far, the RAK includes:
lots of ribbon and twine
a spellbinders nestabilities die set (lacey squares, I think it's called)
a Ching Chou Kiuk stamp
a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die (birdcage and bird)
I plan to add lots of other stuff, too. In fact, I'm going to keep adding to it until March 1st, which is when I will post it here on my blog with a description and picture(s). I'll make it easy to win, too. All you'll have to do is post a comment to the RAK post and put a pic of it in your sidebar, linking back to my blog. You don't even have to become a follower, because I only want you to follow me if you like my work, not just to win goodies. So, stay tuned for my RAK post on March 1st!!! You'll have from March 1st til the 14th, to enter!
