It's my birthday. My plan is to la-di-da all day -- for just one day. The big plan is no plans : )
It's also Grand Opening day. In honor of the occasion, I'm giving away a free pattern for La Fleur Debris brooch with every order placed in the HB store from now until midnight tomorrow*. This sassy pin can be made from your sewing scraps, hence the name (floor debris + fleur-de-lis = fleur debris -- see?) and can be made entirely by hand. Wear one in your hair, on your coat, or pinned to your purse. I've done all three, but not all at once.
(Isaac says my parenthetical explanation is "too much exposition." I say "Bah.")
I figure a good-ol' birthday giveaway is fitting as well -- we have a serious tradition going -- and I do have a whole tray's worth of flowers made up. So, post a suggestion for a giveaway contest maybe, and one of the flowers will go to the best idea. Two other flowers will be won by sheer luck. Sound good?
Thanks for playing along. This is the third year of such silliness. Check out the joke contest from two years ago & the embarrassing stories from last year's birthday. I could certainly use some more giveaway contest ideas -- and a good helping of birthday giggles.
**All orders received from Tues, August 12th through Weds, August 13th at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time will include one copy of the Le Fleur Debris pattern. It's a printed pattern, not a download. No need to enter any codes at checkout : )
