Happy Birthday

to me.  Tomorrow, February 4, is my birthday when I will be  49 59 69 oh, never mind.  Old!  If you leave me a comment you will be in the drawing for one of these three fabric postcards from my embossed velvet series, your choice


  This one is made of my favorite Dupioni silks with an embossed velvet heart (made by me) and fancy machine stitching. You can use it as a special Valentine, if you like.  It can be put right in the mail, as is, with a first class stamp or you can mail it in the clear plastic sleeve I will provide and put a stamp on that or you can keep it for yourself.


 Perhaps you'd like this one of collaged tissue paper over fabric and an embossed velvet dragonfly.




Or this one made on commercial batik with an embossed velvet ginkgo leaf and pearl nuggets.  This one probably wouldn't be good for you to mail because of the pearls.  I would mail it to you in a bubble wrap envelope.


I know that a lot of readers come to my blog regularly (I know because they tell me) yet never leave a comment. You know who you are. Now's your time to step up to the plate.  It really is so easy to do.  At the bottom of each blog entry is a little gray word that says "comments".  Click on that and it will take you to another page.  There you will be able to read any other comments that have been left.  Also on that page will be a box that says,"enter your comment"  Write in the box whatever you have to say.  When it asks for your identity, click on Blogger, if you have a Blogger account, and your name will show up.  If you do not have an account click on "anonymous" but be sure to sign your name in the comment box so that I know who you are. Then click the "publish your comment" button and you're done!

I will draw a name and announce the winner on Tuesday.

Happy Birthday Norma and many more years of creativity to go.
Your " heartstrings" are wonderful and the Kimono project is glorious.
I would just love the ginko postcard for my collection.

I knew your BD was sometime this week and I know how young you are. I'm sure I'm one of your readers that you are talking about who never comment. I would love your heart postcard to use with the rest of my Valentine decor. Judy
