This week I was blog surfing and I stopped by to check on my sweet & crafty friend Karen's blog just in time to see some giveaway action.... yes I was a little late for the signing up , but still wanted to join in on the fun. I love GIVEAWAYS even if I don't win! Now you can get in on the Pay It Forward Action too.

Here are the official rules: I will send a hand made gift to the first three people who leave a comment on this post requesting to join the PIF exchange. All the gifts will be made and sent out (sometime within the next year). How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive! What you need to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. This exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PROMISE TO POST THIS SAME 'PAY IT FORWARD' MESSAGE ONTO YOUR BLOG, WHICH MUST BE ACTIVE IN ORDER TO PLAY. YOU WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO THREE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG.
1. The first three people who comment commit to the PIF thing.

2. Then, from all the other comments, I will randomly choose a winner and send that person a gift too. That person isn't in the PIF, that person is just a winner of the giveaway. I'll choose this person on Saturday, February 28th.

The gifts are supposed to be hand made. I know a lot of you are probably thinking that you can't get in on it because your aren't "crafty" enough. Hopefully the Pay It Forward Giveaway creator won't be mad at me but I'm thinking we can bend the official rules a tiny bit. If you really want in on it but don't feel like you can come up with a handmade gift on your own then you should just support someone you know that has a handmade crafty kind of business. Buy a gift from them...just don't head out to Target for your it?

Hope this makes sense...comment away!!! Can't wait to see who gets in on this one!

Happpy Birthday to ME ... Yesterday :)

Ok, yesterday was my birthday .. YEAH ME!!! except it does make me another year older .. rats! Anyhow, great day ... of course spent a little of it cleaning since we had a Premier Design Jewelery Party at my house.... small , but good times and lots of giggles with the girlies!

My daughter gave me herself as my card and her gift .... although she did "shop" at the party and Melinda gave me the list of things she "bought" me with her money .. SO SWEET!! My sweet hubby gave me some dough that on Monday I will promptly spend part of on my feet! Yes feet for a fabulous pedi that I deserve. :) We planned to go to the River for dinner and in the middle of getting ready my friend Debrah called and they just happen to be over in our neck of the woods so they went with us. Was super having another girl to chat with at dinner other than my little lady. Was so happy we got to hangout with her other than at swim practice or a meet. It was a great topper ta great day!

Also, all my friends on Facebook .. yes FB , thanks for all the birthday wishes! That was so cool. My phone beeped all day with messages from them. It's amazing what that birthday calendar produces on your Wall. I even got 2 emails from 2 didgital scrapbook sites that I am signed up on with birthday wishes and a free download. Like I said ... YEAH ME!!!

So today we are off to another birthday party ... which includes SKATING!!! What a great way to end my birthday weekend! :)

PS .... I still have 3 more birthdays to celebrate before we get out of February ... My hubby and friend Marinda are on Tuesday and my big sis "A" has a birthday on Thursday ... so lot's of cake left to eat .. which means lots more treadmill time is headed my way. ;)

OK, so I am so behinds on posts .. February is so full for us since all three of us have a birthday, Valentines' Day and then about 4 more special friends have birthdays as well. So we party all month long!!!!

Here are Maddie's invitations and party favors I did for her for the party last weekend ... see I told you I was far behind!

As some of you know I am trying my hand at digital scrapbooking ... and loving it!

The party was a smashing success and I didn't even have to clean my house in the process!!! What can beat that?

A special thanks to Karen @
Paper Doll Designs .... she makes the little crayon boxes and chocolates .. although these I did make myself as well as the notepads for the kiddies. Karen you are the best and do a way better job than me, but thanks for the encouragement to try it myself for Maddie's party ... was way fun , but next time I will have you do it!
