birthday giveaway...

(a few things I got on a birthday shopping trip in Wellington)

Today is my birthday, I am 40 ...there is not much more I have to say about that.

So I've decided to have a giveaway to celebrate...  leave a comment on this post and next Tuesday I will pick someone to win a print from my shop or blog and a few other goodies.

In other news I have decided on a name for my next sister.  I meet a sweet wee girl in the weekend that inspired me, she will be based on these colours above.  I just love this combination, they make me happy... so stay tuned!

Don't forget to leave a comment if you want to enter the giveaway.

Happy happy Birthday. Hope you had a fantastic day. I LOVED my 40th, almost as much as my 30th. Admittedly I behaved in a much better way for the latter birthday. But then that is what children do to you! But I did party for 10 days straight. At the end of which I decided I had had enough and wasn't going to celebrate any more birthdays for 10 years!

Happy Birthday! I'm not that far off from 40 myself... age is a state of mind, they say.
I just love your artwork, your style of painting, your palette. You're fantastic with choosing colour, that's for sure!

Scrapdragon said...

A little late,, but I hope you had a great birthday. My 40th (long time ago, lol) was memorable. I booked a cruise boat and we (myself and a group of friends) spent a wonderful afternoon cruising along a river in the sunshine. Happy Memories! I love your work so much and I love how you give each of your sisters a personality. Thanks so much for the chance to win!
