I've received a lot of great birthday gifts, but the one I enjoyed the most was when my husband gifted me with an Ipod touch! It was such a surprise. It showed he was listening, cause I'd been wanting one! Patsy from

Happy Birthday!

My favourite birthday present ever was tickets to see the tickets John Barrowman in concert a friend got me last year, it was the gift that kept on giving as the tickets were bought for me in April around my birthday, but the concert wasn't until November so I had months to get over excited :)

Happy Birthday Melissa! I guess I would have to say my favorite birthda gift was my grandparents giving me this beautiful sunflower chime clock. My favorite flower is sunflowers, that's why they gave me a sunflower clock. I have passed it down now to my oldest daughter. Thanks Brenda

Happy belated Brithday Melissa! Keep on shining!
It's interesting how simple questions sometimes put you in a puzzled mode... I tried to recall my birthdays and the gifts I received throughout the years, and the only distinct present that I could recall was an empty photoalbum from my grandma for my 14th birthday. Oh, it was an absolutely fantastic gift - that was about the time I started to collect my own photographs and wanted to create a story of my family in pictures, and I still remember the thrill of having something so elegant, so promising, and, well, so prompt :-)... I was deeply touched by the fact that my grandma truly knew what my interests were at the time... The album was one of those with sturdy pages, tissue papers in between to preserve pictures, and golden embossed word "album" on it. I'd been adding pictures to that album for almost 10 years, then changed the country, then another one, and now I'm scrapbooking :-) But I still have my dear album with me not really for the purposes of documenting our family life any more, but rather as a precious memory of my beloved grandma...

Julianna said...

Hi! Thanks for a great giveaway!
My favorite birthday would probably either be my Cuttlebug, which I got last year for my 13th birthday, OR tickets to see the musical "Les Miserables" this year for 14th...

Thank you again! :)

Carmen Palermo said...

Happy, happy belated birthday Melissa! I hope your day was a special one!

My favorite birthday gift was from my husband on my 45th birthday. We went on a cruise around Alaska. It was the best trip I ever had!

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I will post this on my Facebook page, email all of my crafting friends and post it in some online communities.

You know, turning 40 was a bit traumatic for me . . . UNTIL . . . I read a book by Gail Sheehy (sorry, don't remember the name), where she said today's 40 is the new 30. Well, that was back in 1996, so it's sort of cliche now, but you know what, IT WAS SO TRUE! After I read that I felt like I had another whole decade before things went downhill, and that really is how it turned out. Unfortunately, I keep trying to tell myself 56 is the new 46, and it ain't workin'. lol My favorite birthday was my 10th. I grew up in a very abusive home, but for some reason that I still don't understand to this day, tenth birthdays were very special to my father, and he treated me with great kindness and made it magical. The next day things went back to normal, but I did have some wonderful for that one day. I know that's sort of a downer, but it would be hard to explain why without the background. Anyway, I've post a pic of your candy on my blog at: http://paperluvver.blogspot.com/. Thanks so much for the chance to win all your very very fun prizes!

Wishing you a fabulous Birthday!!
My favorite birthday was 7 years ago. I received my Baby Bug and have been crafting ever since, thanks!!

This Art That Heals said...

I know what you mean, it flies by doesn't it? I turned forty a year and a half ago and giggled every time I thought about being forty. It was kinda weird but now I am going to be forty-two this year! Yikes, time is flying but I'm enjoying the journey.
My favorite gift was a card my son gave to me and expressed his heart and love for me that sometimes are hard to express through words.

I hope you have a beautiful birthday!

Stephanie said...

Hope you have a fabulous 40th! I will be there with you in about 2 months....hehe. My favorite birthday present was a pair of diamond pinwheels on my 20th birthday. My twin sister and I received this as a gift from our Mother...for Christmas the previous year we received our last Christmas present from our father that was killed in an auto accident that he was having made for us. These diamond earrings fit into the pinwheels.Have a wonderful day!

Angela said...

My favorite birthday present is my Silhouette Cameo that I got for my 40th birthday two months ago. While I love the Cameo, I love more that my dear husband figured out the perfect gift to get me and conspired with my Mom to make it a surprise.

My favorite gift was my Disney watch I got for my 18th birthday.

Michele from MS said...

40 hmmm yeah I remember that one! LOL It was a wonderful day - my son gave me a collage that he had been working on for weeks. It was full of photos of him....all different shapes and sizes and among other heartfelt sentiments...it said "stay beautiful". I wouldn't take a million dollars for that!! Since my birthday is 9/11...the past several years have been rather depressing but I am thankful for all the blessings in my life. Hope you have the best 40th b-day ever!!! I will spread the word about the giveaway ~~ msmith38652@gmail.com

Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day :)

My favorite birthday gift is one that 10 years later I still use/wear all the time. :) My parents bought my the most beautiful birthstone ring...I had wanted a birthstone ring for as long as I can remember...I saw this one in an ad, showed it to them(as I frequently did) and they bought it for me. It is still my most cherished piece of jewelry.

I'm a new follower & I've posted your giveaway on my blog candy page on my blog.

Linda Bolte said...

oh, to be 40 again. It seems so long ago. spoil yourself rotten and have fun!

My favorite present was a vulcanizer that my husband got me, his thoughts were in the perfect place, now if I can only find out how to use and get supplies for the antiquited (sp) machine. Even though its set idle for several years, just his thought of how I'd like it makes it my favorite.

I don't have a blog, so I'll pass word along to friends and family.
thanks for the opportunity to win these fantastic prizes. I am never lucky, but heck, I keep trying. LOL

Susie said...

Happy Birthday Melissa, my 40th birthday will be this November. My most favorite birthday is that me and my daughter get to share a birthday, she was born on my 23rd birthday and it was truly the best present ever.

Happy Birthday Melissa! I hope you had a fabulous day and have been royally spoilt!! Favourite gift is a bit of a tough one... I still have a watch my parents bought me for my 16th birthday, even though it no longer works - as they had the back of it engraved, and I could never bring myself to throw it out (and besides craft papers - I'm a thrower-awayer!) :D
