Happy Birthday to me Giveaway! Tell me what you'd do :)

To celebrate my birthday this year, I want to have a giveaway surprise! Next Tuesday, the 27th at Noon, I'll be holding a drawing for this set of pot holders. Read on for details.

I want to share this bit of inspiration: A few years ago I read about a local woman who had recently passed away. She had died at the age of 100. They quoted her in the article..... "If I had known I was going to live this long I would have started taking violin lessons when I was 60. I would have been playing the violin for 40 years."

THIS is important. As I get older I try to remember this quote. We just don't know how long we've got, so why not do those things that we've always wanted to do. It's not too late. Even if you might think it's silly. Who knows, you might have another 40, 50..... 70 years to live. Do what you love.

So now, to be in my birthday giveaway, and with this quote in mind, all you have to do is tell me what you would do or what you've always wanted to do. (Oh, and follow my blog and/or Facebook page!) Would you travel? Where to? Would you give money away? Would you buy yourself a new toy, or violin lessons? If it's a bunch of things, list 'em!

Happy Spring ~ Happy Easter

It's quiet around here today. Only thing stirring is the rooster at the farm across the street. Well, the cows are up too, but other than that not a car has gone by and it's nearly 9 a.m. I love holidays for this. That sense of the world has stopped for a moment and everything has that muffled quietness about it. To celebrate the quiet and sheer wonderfulness, I wanted to share a couple of items from artisans in my Etsy Project Embrace team. Enjoy the quietude!
