The completely UNAUTHORIZED Happy Birthday Giveaway!

How many times does a girl turn 49?  Hopefully only this once! This is it!  I am entering my last year before I turn the BIG 50!

So, since I have absolutely NO CLUE as to what is expected at this ripe old age, I decided to have a GIVEAWAY!  That is unexpected and really quite lovely for me ( I LOVE sharing great stuff) and hopefully for you too!

To make this a fun and unique opportunity, a brand NEW Aurifil collection has been created.  This is a completely UNAUTHORIZED collection of my own making from the bins in my sewing room.  I looked through all the colors and weights and decided that this collection would contain the best of all worlds!  A combination of weights ( included are 50wt, 40wt 28wt and 12wt), colors and even some  FABULOUS variegated!  This way you can try so much in one GORGEOUS thread box.  The bottom row alone is giving me chills!

Say "HELLO GORGEOUS!" to the My Go-Go Life Aurifil ( did I mention it is completely unauthorized) collection!



Look at this!!!! Makes me SO HAPPY!!!!

And as if that were not enough...I will be adding in a small spool collection of Frances Newcomb's Treasure Chest and three mini charm packs!


The grand finale, is an Aurifil color card with ALL 270 lush colors so you will be able to match up the perfect threads to every project!



That is a whole lot of AMAZING stuff you can win!!!!


I will be using Rafflecopter for the giveaway to give you a few options to make it easier for you to enter and for me to be able to contact the random winner!  This giveaway is open internationally since I LOVE all of my awesome international friends :o) I would love it if you could share it with all of your friends too ;)  Repost, retweet, relove :o) Happy Birthday to me and I am sending GOOD LUCK wishes to you!!!!

Kathy Erickson said...

Happy Birthday young lady! I've got a few years on you, and can say the 50's aren't so bad. Before I turned 50, I celebrated starting 50 days before and played a game I thought up called "50 Ways to Leave My 40's". Each day, I did some kind of random act of kindness and it was so much fun! I also posted about it each day, so others could enjoy it too!
