Cakes and Giveaways

My birthday was earlier this week. I frigging love birthdays. I love all birthdays. Most of all, I love my own. I don't even care that I'm getting older. The best part about birthdays is the cake.

My very own cake wreck

That lovely cake is my very own "cake wreck." It's not a true wreck. They ordered it like that. The woman in the bakery at the grocery store thought it was an odd order, but did it anyway. My friends are awesome.

My plans to post on my first blogiversary or on my birthday didn't happen. Life has a way of getting in the way of blogging. So, I'm going to make up for it today with an Un-birthday/Un-blogivesary giveaway. I'm going to give away these hankies that I made for the Crafters Holiday Market:


I just made a whole bunch to sell at Love, Me. I'm a big fan of the hanky. I have allergies that are usually just bad enough to be annoying. No matter how hard I tried, tissues were everywhere and I probably bought a box of tissues a week. Since I started to use hankies, I've had the same box of tissues in the house for almost two years. But the trouble with hankies is that they aren't always easy to find. So I've decided to help the world out and offer them pretty hankies. These bad boys are environmentally friendly and grammatically correct!

Now, what do you have to do to win a hankie? Just leave a comment and tell me about your best or worst birthday. My best is hard to nail down, since I really do love my birthday, but last year's birthday was a good one. My friends gave me a swatch, made me a cake that looks like a pineapple and took me dancing.

my birthday cake!

(like I said, my friends are awesome).

The worst was my 19th birthday. Which for many girls in a Canadian university should be an awesome birthday, as it means you are legally allowed to visit the campus bar. For me, it fell on a Sunday and I was in a minor car accident the day before (suddenly slippery roads and the choice between an oncoming car or a ditch, my cousin wisely chose the ditch). To the credit of my friends in my section, they got the RA to let them into my room while I was away and put up balloons and a happy birthday sign (brave, considering I was notorious at the time for having a messy room).

Now, your turn! I'll take comments until Jan. 30 and choose a winner at random. Since I'm moving on Jan. 31, the winner's hankies will be in the mail that day.

Hi LA!
The reason I deserve the hanky more than anybody else is because I share the birthdate with ya! Believe it or not - it's 19th Jan! I turned 34 and went out even in such awful weather with my family for Thai food!
I think my best B'day ever was the 32nd one because I was a Mommy then. Nothing was quite the same ever after.
Cheers! anu.
