Happy Birthday!

Well, the day is finally here!  It's my birthday, hey, hey, hey.  It's my birthday, yeah!

Judging by my little song you would think I have a day of luxury planned--not so my friends!  I am at home with my precious little ones, and with the exception of some special gifts and thoughtful gestures, this day is much like any other day I would have.  It's not that I mind, though.  I am thankful to God for 31 years of life!  Some people don't even get to see that many years on earth, so I will relish and enjoy all that He has given me!

On another note, I sadly did not finish my princess's dress.  It was far too ambitious an undertaking to finish with the time I have.  I realized that after getting started and having issues with the sizing of the dress.  I am continuing to work on the dress, but it has been a challenge to get through this one.

Also, NO ONE seemed to be interested in the giveaway I was having from my last post. So...I guess I am the winner of my two sets of patterns.  Or maybe you all have enough sewing patterns already.  Either way, my first giveaway was a bust, but hopefully the next one I do will garner some attention.  I still appreciate all my readers, and hope you are having a wonderful week!

Stay sew-filled!


  1. Happy birthday from New Zealand :-D. I would've entered your giveaway but saw it was for US residents only. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with everything and everyone you love.

  2. Thank you Rachelle, your comment made my day!! I am blessed to know that someone in New Zealand is reading.

  3. Awww! I feel bad for not entering your giveaway now!! I totally would have but I don't celebrate birthdays! Sorry Nessa!

  4. Happy Birthday Vanessa! I would have enter as well, but it was only open to U.S residents! But nonetheless happy birthday!

  5. Have a very happy birthday xxx. (I absolutely would have entered your giveaway but I'm in the UK).

  6. Happy birthday... I would have entered too but I'm in Australia! I like the burda picks too!

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! Hope it was a good one!

  8. Hi Vanessa!
    Happy Belated Birthday! So glad to hear you had such a great day!
    Thank you so much for your comments on my blog, esp about choosing the solution that gives me peace. I see the surgeon on the 18th and will ask for the MRI and CT scan then. I see the gyno on the 25th and should have a better idea of what to ask for from him as I hope to have had the other diagnostic tests done by then. :)
    Have a great evening!!


Let me know what you think!
