Today, on my 28th birthday, I am feeling quite lucky to have received some major birthday love. I got to talk to a dear friend I haven't seen in a year, my mom and Nana visited for lunch, I have received some very kind and thoughtful gifts -- check out these sweet boots! --
AND, the uber-amazing CanarySanctuary has kindly bestowed upon me the I Love Your Blog Award (Psst...it's her birthday, too. Go stop by her blog and leave some well-wishes!). What a wonderful birthday present -- thank you, CanarySanctuary!
The rules of the award are:
1- Post the award on your blog.
2- Add a link to the person who gave you the award
3- Nominate at least 4 other bloggers and add their links
4- Leave a comment at the recipients’ blogs so they can pass it on
My nominees are, in no particular order...
The Lady Knits
Involving the Senses
The Knitting Blog by Mr. Puffy the Dog
There are truly some talented ladies behind the links above and I thank them all for sharing that talent with the blogosphere!
In other birthday love related news, I've decided to do a birthday giveaway. Last year, a good friend of mine gave me a kit that came with all the materials necessary to make some little felted purses. I've been on this major Christmas-knitting kick lately and thought these would make nice gifts. Well, I've gone a little crazy and am going to end up with way more purses than I will know what to do with when the holidays are upon us. Last night as I was brushing my teeth, I realized that, with all these purses on the needles, and with my birthday coming up in a few hours, I should use the opportunity to give one away. SO. Please leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite birthday tradition is. On Sunday at 12 noon PDT, I will randomly choose a commenter and send them my favorite of the little felted purses and some other goodies from San Francisco. I have to warn you and apologize in advance -- because I just thought of this last night, the little purses are in various stages of development and none have actually been finished, it might take about a week to get the prize shipped off to the winner. But here's a preview of the purses...
Thanks to all my knitblogging friends who shared age 27 with me. I can tell already that 28 will be even better!
