**Giveaway now closed.**I'm baa-aack! Did you miss me?? Did you? Really? I'm going to pretend like you did and that you have been counting the days and eagerly awaiting my return! :)
I really did enjoy my break! I had hoped to catch up a bit on blog-reading while on break but I honestly wasn't on the computer that much so I am just as behind as ever. I hope to catch up a little at a time, but I have company coming so it won't happen this week!
Let's see - what else is happening? Oh yeah...it's MY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!! Not only that, but it's a biggie - my 40th!!! Yes, I just told you my age. It's just a number - no big deal, right? :) And I sort of had a bloggie birthday while I was on break - I hit my 2 Year Blogaversary last week (yay)!! I decided to just let it be a quiet occasion this year since I had such a fabulous blogaversary bash last year.
In honor of my being back from break and celebrating my birthday, I have a SWEET giveaway for you!! If you don't already know Christy from Wired Whimsy, you should get to know her - I just love her! I "met" her on twitter and read her blog before she even started her Etsy shop. She has housework struggles just like me and a great sense of humor and she's a talented jewelry-maker and a sweetheart too (and she just happens to like chocolate)! Her blog is cute too - it's Wired to the Whimsy and you simply MUST read her Ultimate Blog Party post - you'll learn all about Christy and love her as much as I do!
I bought this Rose Garden bracelet from Wired Whimsy for a friend - soooo pretty!
And look at this Lilac Heart Necklace in the Wired Whimsy shop - perfect for Spring!
Christy sent me the cutest early birthday present - my very own Stop and Smell the Chocolates necklace, bookmark, and purse charm! They are SO adorable! And 1 of YOU (U.S. Readers only) can win a matching chocolate jewelry set from Wired Whimsy!! Take a look at the cuteness...
