Birthday Giveaway

It is my birthday on Monday and since I am not liking birthday's lately, since turning 30 last year, I am trying to do everything to cheer me up! Like my husband taking my birthday off to go to Disneyland, I am still deciding on where to go for dinner?!?!?! Needless to say I do not like getting older at all. I know I have issues. Being in your 30's is great, right? I hope so but around my birthday I don't think so. So.....to cheer me up and you as well I thought I would do something fun and giveaway some popular fabrics.



Giveaway

Bike not included, Gweniveve would be sad.

I bought the new line Ruby Star Rising by Melody Miller mostly for my Spicing up the Kitchen swap partner but since everyone is buzzing about this line I bought some extra to giveaway to you for my birthday! Sounds fun to me.

You have two chances to win. First Prize is the fabrics.

2 FQ's of Viewfinders in Multi & Blue

18"x 24" (larger than an FQ) of Ephemera in fuschia

12.5" x 20" of Vintage Dishes in mint



Giveaway - Ruby Star Rising


2nd Prize is a Potholder in these fabrics. I thought since I will be making one for my partner I might as well make another one for the giveaway. I haven't made it yet so no picture but you get the idea. A potholder in Ruby Star Rising.

To Enter:

Leave a comment with your favorite color. "Hi this is Darci, What's your favorite color?"

Yup that is it. I will leave the giveaway open for a week. Everyone is welcome. I will close the giveaway on Friday January 28th at midnight. I will announce the winners on Saturday.

Hiya Darci, Happy Birthday girl! I've hated birthdays for a while now so I totally understand your feelings. My current favourite colours are burnt orange (the sunset kind) and burgundy (the red wine kind). I'm on a fabric diet at the moment, so winning some RSR would be great to keep me from failing!

Mrs. Darling said...

Happy Birthday! My name's Amanda and I am a pink-aholic (unless you count white as a color....:)

Hope that thirty something is more fun than you expect!

amber said...

Jen said...

Happy Birthday, Darci!! I feel your pain...well, almost. I just turned 29 this month and I am having a very hard time knowing I will be in my 30s soon enough. But Disneyland is surely the best place to spend on your birthday! I've done several and should be going for my b-day in a few weeks. My favorite color...at this moment I'll say aqua (I have lots!)

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday!!! My favourite colour would have to be blue.

Happy Birthday.
Andi :-)

Nellie's Niceties said...

Happy Birthday Darci. I've been 21 for the last 5 years since turning 30 :-) my favourite colour changes with my mood but currently purple/blue seem to be top of the list. I am very fickle though so change on a whim :-)

Lynne said...

Well I'm 45 and I'm happy with that so 30 seems very young to me. Fave colour??? Yikes, that's a tough one - maybe orange today. BTW, I've heard some quality issues with the RSR but yours seems to be crisply printed - may I ask where you got it from?

Lynne

Jenn said...

Happy Birthday Darci! I've been 29 for the past 5 years, I'm getting really good at this birthday thing
I think my very favorite color is robin's egg blue!

Val Miller said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I totally understand about the birthdays ... I am the same way (except I just turned 39, so now I really hate the idea of the next one!!).
Anyway - my fav. colour is blue.

prsd4tim2 said...

Hi Darci! Happy Birthday! I'm not a birthday lover either, but my husband says it's better than the alternative. Meanwhile, I had to jump from 29 to 39 last year - my daughter said it was too embarrassing when she turned 28!! LOL

Anyway, I'm pretty fickle about my favorite color. I really like anything bright. But I went and did a little fabric therapy last night after a truly rotten week at work (great way to cheer up, right?) and decided my fave color right now is yellow.

Thanks for the giveaway! And Happy Birthday again. They're not so bad, really.

Caroline said...

I dont really have a favourite colour..although I think my favourite colour right now would be a sort of grey-blue ...Like on rainy days. ;)

Caroline~

joliesjunebugboutique said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite color today is green!

Mimi said...

Sending birthday wishes your way! Hope your day is special. My favorite colour is blue!

Jessy said...

Happy Birthday! My husband is turning 30 in a couple of months and dreading it, but I keep telling him life is getting better all the time, why would 30 make it worse?
My favourite colour is definitely green. In college, my obsession with green got so bad my roommates stole all of my green clothes and accessories and ransomed them to try and get me to buy something in a different colour!

The Sherman Four said...

Darciiiiiii, I turn 30 in April. NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!!!! BLUUUHHH!!!! My favorite color is brown! It totally has changed in the past couple of years and I didnt want to admit it, but its totally brown!!!

Emily Lee said...

Hi Darci, this is Emily! My favorite color is red, and I'm right behind you... turning 29 in April. I just keep reminding myself that I've hit almost every milestone I set for myself for this age (gotta get going on a baby though, yay!).

My favorite color is red, and thanks for a great giveaway!!

Lisa said...

Hi Darci! Happy Birthday! I will be 29 (for the first time, not an again person... yet) in 10 days! So that gives me what a few months before I start my 30 freakout. You look great so I don't think you have anything to freakout about! Anyway I'll get to the point my favorite color is yellow.
-Lisa

Alexandra said...

My birthday is Monday too!! Yay Jan. 24 people! I haven't reach 30 yet, but am getting dangerously close. :) My favorite color is yellow.

Jeni said...

Hi! I think I love turquoise the most. Or green. Or orange! Can I have three favorite colors?

Anabel said...

My favorite color is green, but I really love all colors! Each year, I have a new second favorite color... last year it was purple, the year before that red, and this year it's yellow...! But green is the only one I love with any real consistency. :}

Rachel Hauser said...

I hear ya on the 30's. Happy Birthday, though. I'll claim green.

sjohn3663 said...

Hi Darci! Happy Birthday! I'm having more trouble with 33 than I did with 30...then it didn't seem to register??

My favorite color is...color! I don't know!! I really love aqua these days...I'll stick with that for the moment!

bobbie23nc said...

Darci, my favorite color is yellow. Sunday is my birthday and if you double your thirty years I'd still be the older. Quilting last as long as your desire to accomplish more-everyone needs more fabric!

Jenny said...
