Giveaway...

crafty chloe book
A friend at Simon & Schuster sent us a copy of *the cutest* book called Crafty Chloe. Written by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Heather Ross, it's already become a favorite at our house. "Everything is better with google eyes" is a philosophy we can get behind! Simon & Schuster also sent some Crafty Chloe goodies (the Crafty Chloe book, crayons, a poster, a measuring tape, and google eyes) to give away to one lucky reader. Just tell us about the best birthday gift you've ever received in the comments! I'll randomly draw a name next Friday (March 30th) and announce the winner that day. Don't want to wait for the giveaway? Pick up a copy of Crafty Chloe right here. She's fabulous!

Best birthday present ever? A trip to Chicago from my sister to see NKOTB. Not ashamed to admit it. :)

Kelly G. said...

I think I love this book already and I haven't even held it yet! Looks like so much fun!

My best birthday present? Spontaneous weekend vacation with the hubby while the little one was with grandma.

I know it sounds kind of silly, but one of my best gifts of recent memory was my Gingher spring-action dressmaker shears. Or else it was the giant box of colored pencils, markers, glitter, and other art stuff along with one of those super huge sketch pads they sell in the art supply store. Definitely one of those two.
What a great giveaway!

I know this sounds weird, but it was a "conch" shell that my husband waded into thigh high water to get for me last year while we were visiting Martha's Vineyard. I spotted it from a little walking bridge and he went in and retrieved it for me while my children and a few strangers cheered him on! Silly, huh?

anika said...

I love Heather Ross's patterns, and her illustrations are just as wonderful! My favorite birthday present was a trip up to Maine to visit an old friend who's birthday is the day after mine.

erin said...

...my husband found me this amazing orange rotary phone last year for my birthday. it was the best.
thanks for the give away!

OH MY GOODNESS, We would LOVE LOVE LOVE this book and GOOGLE EYES, most certainly! Favorite birthday, child: I got a huge box of school/art supplies, I still remember the excitement, of all that stuff all to myself. Adult: my 30th, my sister-in-law gave me a certificate for an hour massage. My first, it was absolutely amazing! and memorable to be so lavished on by my "new" sister.

When I was 8 my parents gave me a 'My Friend Mandy' doll and I still make clothes for her (I'm 42) with my daughter so she can play with her. Another birthday I had just quit my job and enrolled in design school - my boyfriend (now husband) gave me all the drafting equipment I needed.

For my 21st birthday I bought myself a brand new yellow Ford Mustang... with some help from my parents ;) 10 years later I am still driving it and she looks as good as ever!

Caroline said...

My best birthday present ever? May not sound like much but just the sweetest night out with my husband last year without kids was about perfect!

heather villars said...

Best birthday present? slammin boots. beautiful brown supple leather. and a dose of attitude!

Jen Craun said...

On the subject of google eyes, this made me smile today:

My best birthday gift was when my husband agreed to go dancing with me at a little ballroom style dance hall with a live band and lots of lovely older couples. He is not a dancing in public fan, but did it purely for me.

My best birthday gift is my youngest daughter. She did arrive just a few days before my actual birthday, but it felt like a birthday gift. I call her my "Birthday Buddy."

kristin said...

Best birthday present ever was a salvaged leaded glass window with a McIntosh rose design from my husband. I had never seen or asked for it, it was a complete surprise, but it fit my taste perfectly. I cried. :) My daughter would flip for Crafty Chloe, and I'd love to win! Thanks, Abbey.

Andrews girl said...

Best birthday gift...hmm. 2 years ago my fiance (now husband) completely surprised me by buying a painting from an artist friend. I LOVED that painting for years but could never afford it, and I don't remember even telling him that I loved it! I was shocked and so happy when I opened it!
and that book is adorable!!

Millie Wamsted said...

Can I admit that my best birthday present ever was a Roomba?! (You know, the robotic vacuum.) Kind of embarrassing! But with little crawlers around the house, it sure helps!

afke said...

my best birthday gift was a sport watch i got. I turned 14 and at that time i lived in Malawi, (Africa) and we didn't have much choice there (and western stuff was more expensive). That my parents gave me this watch was very special. About 4 yrs ago (22 yrs old then)it broke and i had to buy a new one.
Have a nice weekend!

Dale said...

This year I got dance lessons. Fantastic!

Patricia said...

The year I got a Cinderella watch (I think I was seven).

ninji said...

My best birthday present was when my brother surprised me and took me out of school to go to a mariners play off game

Carrie said...

Best birthday gift by far was my daughter being born four years ago... she was born a few days before my birthday and I was thrilled!

Anonymous said...

my best present ever? my sweet man took all the kids out and each one came home with something special for me. he went to such trouble and they were all so very proud of their gifts ... showered in love, i was.

Chad said...

not entering in the drawing, but I had to agree that everything, *everything* is better with googly eyes o_0

Stacy said...

I will be 40 Monday! The best birthday present is this year. I was voted Teacher of the Year at my school!

Just Trying Not to Blink .... said...

I've got three very "crafty" little girls so this would be the absolute hit at our house!!

Love your site!

Debra Lee said...

I love Heather Ross. The brst gift I ever got was when the hubs got my dog groomed for me!

Jenny said...

Earlier this year, a huge storm hit my town and my beloved cat, Ralphy, disappeared. My sister and I spent 6.5 days searching for him. My heart sank at the thought of him being lost, yet I still had this glimmer of hope that he might return on my birthday (You know, a birthday miracle). He did! We found him in a very weak, tired and hunger state (probably just in time). That was by far my happiest birthday gift ever!

Sarah said...

The best birthday gift Ive ever received was probably when my mom took me to Prince Edward Island when I was 9 years old to visit Green Gables.

Mary said...

a pink barbie convertable car!
thanks!!!

Juli said...

My very crafty 10 yr old would adore this!
My best birthday gift? Perfume from Liz Claiborne in a blue triangular bottle with the little "window" of perfume in the center. I loved the design of that bottle. I was wearing skinny jeans & an Esprit top and it made me feel so grown up receiving perfume!. ;)

Byrdi said...

Best birthday ever...hmm...tickets to see Wicked? Or professional colored pencils? I'm not sure; I don't remember many.

Mrunmayee said...

Friends 'Til the end paperback book. I was eyeing (googly eyeing?) it for quite sometime and it was a total surprise. Love my BF for that one!

Robin noteverstill said...

I know it's total cheeseballs but I really love the little handmade thingies my kids always come up with for my birthday.

brianne said...

I know so many little ones who would LOVE this book. Best birthday present ever was my sailor boyfriend surprising me on leave last summer. Can't beat quality time!

Leslie said...

Best birthday present: a battery operated monster doll that sings that "manamana" song from Sesame Street. I laughed so hard I cried!

Maria Baker said...

For my 8th birthday my Dad hooked me up with the raddest Huffy BMX bike. I had been wanting it forever and my Mom was really against it since it was a boys bike and I am not a boy. But I wanted to ride wheelies and my Daddy hooked me up. And yes, I was a kick a$$ wheelie rider. I miss that bike.

Christy said...

My girls and I just read this book at Barnes and Noble and LOVED it! It is my oldest in a nutshell. My best birthday gift was surprise tickets to see Rusted Root and Sting when I was in college.eg

Sara said...

I got really uncontrollably excited my last birthday when my sister-in-law presented my with a Troy and Abed in the Morning coffee mug (from the indispensable show Community.) I am such a nerd for that show and it's weird, meta-comedy. :)

Jeanette Frump @lefrumpette said...

Best Birthday gift ever....orange Schwinn bike, with a striped banana seat, tall handle bars, and a basket. If I could send you the picture of me posing with it that day, I would!!

nico said...

That book is the cutest!
The best bday present I ever got was for my sixteenth birthday I got taken to NYC for a show. After years of dreaming about Broadway, it was amazing. I remember trying to make myself remember all of it.
