It’s my birthday & I will give away shiznit if I want to!!!

Today, I am old. I am as old as mom. Well, not how old my mom is today, but how old my mom was when I thought she was an old lady. She wasn’t an old lady though, but just a young mother, and I am not old, but I used to think that the age I am today was so ancient and so far away that I would never be that old. Well, I was wrong…today is my birthday and I am that old.

I’m not going to say that ‘O’ word anymore, but instead I’m just going to share a bit of wisdom I’ve learned over the years….which is that time flies whether you are having fun or not. You better make the most of things and have some fun goddammit, so you don’t wake up one day, when you are actually old (like 84), and wonder what the hell happened. That’s enough preaching for today, on to funner things.

In Indie Fixx tradition, it may be my birthday, but today I am giving away the presents! I have TEN PRIZES to give away to TEN WINNERS!Β  You can see the prizes below as well as visit the shops who donated them.

How to win?

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post wishing me some birthday cheer! Also, make sure to share your top 3 shops from all the prize choices below and tell me what you would put your gift certificate (or winner’s choice) towards for each of your top three shops.

I will choose 10 random commenters to win and hopefully it will work out that each winner will be able to win one of their top three prize choices.

This giveaway will end Monday, June 22nd at 11:59 am EST.Β  Good luck to all of you and Happy Birthday to me! I hope I get some birthday loot that’s as wonderful as all these prizes!

  1. Happy belated Birthday, have a good one =). Your website is fantastic, it has all the coolest stuff.

  2. The entry period for this contest ended June 22nd at 11:59 am EST.

    You may continue to leave birthday wishes for me though. πŸ˜‰

  3. I love Something Blue at Hilary Caroline Jewelry- well, I love a ton of the things at Hilary Caroline Jewelry, but that’s standing out today. I have a similar difficulty deciding from lilyella’s collection; the garden branch bracelet? The Waterlilly Landing necklace?

    At panpoly I would absolutely stock up on those gorgeous buttons- I’ve never been able to resist buttons.

    And I know it’s only supposed to be three, but my love of labradorite demands I give Mazie’s Searchlight earring a mention. Gorgeous!

  4. Many happy birthday wishes.

    #2. Up Up Creative
    #3. Hilary Caroline Jewelry

  5. Happy Birthday! I hope it was wonderful! πŸ™‚

  37. Although it isn’t close to your 100th, its something to aim for
    One Hundredth Birthday -by Kim Bridgford

    Your birthdays now are lit with irony,
    And years build up like tombstones on the cake.
    You use one candle for simplicity.

    Anticipation mixes with an ache
    That makes you wonder how you got this far,
    And when. At thirty, things became a blur,
    And then the weary nonsense of the rest.
    One hundredth birthday bash! It’s a mistake,
    You say, and they count out for you, alike,
    With rapid fingers all your days. No test:
    You can’t believe you are three numbers strong.

    You’ve become a span of time where people go
    To reevaluate where man went wrong.
    Time’s diplomat, you smile, and then you blow.

  38. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN; And you are not old. At my age I can say I’m old as dirt!. As my children ask me about coming across the prairie in a ‘covered wagon’. I have to admit the pony express was here befor I arrived. But as I keep this saying hanging by computer I’ll share it with you. You have most likly seen and read this dozens of times already:”Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving saftly in a pretty and well preserved body,but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming ‘WOW, WHAT A RIDE”!! That is my motto in life. (I’m almost 70).
    The three things I like best are (although I like them all:
    #1 PANOPOLY love the ‘twee bowls and spoons.
    #2 BERT AND BEE Embroidery cup. LOVE IT.
    #3 BROOKLYNSOUL, the gold rush necklace is lovely.

  39. Happy belated!

    1. upup: so many things! maybe the stationery

  52. Happy birthday!!! I hope you get to do something great.

    I love the polaroid transfer prints from Hilary Hitchcok.

    It was hard to choose, such great collections!! Anyway, here it goes: I would love anything from Berd & Bee (such a lovely shop) especially the tree printed serving plate or the botanical coasters. Two: ABEL MABEL’s stash, especially the yellow circles one and her Birdie magnets. Last: LILLYELLA’s Silver Garden Branch Bracelet.

    Thanks Lady!! Party hard…doesn’t matter what others said!!

    You are NOT old! (I should know – this year is a big birthday for me, with a six and a zero in it – and I’M NOT OLD EITHER!)

    I hope you have the most wonderful year of your life.

    I love this throw pillow from AbleMabel:

    Also, this Tree Mug from berdandbee:

    And, these Verdigris leaf earrings from Brooklyn Soul:

    You always show the most wonderful things! I just wish I had more cash in hand these days, but I still try to buy handmade whenever possible!

  56. Odd. I wrote out a huge dealio yesterday but didn’t immediately see it posted to the comments. I guess it didn’t work!!! *sigh*

    Happy Birthday yesterday!!! I hope you had a fantabulous day!!!

    1) I’m in so much love with lillyella’s shop. I dare say I might drop a bit of $$ on it before I find out if I win this!! I’m in complete and utter love with her Forget Me Knot Bracelet!!! I also love her Waterlilly Landing and Broadleaf Buttercup necklaces!

    2) I’m lusting after Hilary Caroline’s Jewelry! I’d buy Posie – Pink Chrysanthemum and Vintage Speckled White Beads on Gunmetal Chain Necklace and the Navy Lady necklace in a heartbeat if my purse would allow it!!!

    3) I liked the painted mugs and plates on Berd and Bee but what had me at hello was the Modern Doily Pillow!! I don’t know where I would put it if I bought it but I know I’d have to buy at LEAST 5 more just to keep that one pillow company!!

    Again I hope you had a happy birthday!!!

  57. Happy birthday. I just celebrated my milestone this month. sigh. But my mom is turning 65 and i would love to get her something from my three faves:

    My favorites are:
    Berd & Bee
    Brooklyn Soul

    Have a great birthday!

  60. Happy Birthday. I always thought that June would be a better month to have a birthday..than December. (It sucks).

    I really liked the Honey Blossom Bracelets at Lilyella. In fact, a number of her bracelets caught my eye.

    I am a scrapbooker and the buttons at panopoly are georgous! Dare I use them on a page instead of a dresss?

    And I love serving pieces so the addition of the Handpainted Tree Service plate from Etsy would be nice.

    Celebrate out loud, girl!

  61. Happy happy bday-you are still a youngun’! Try being my age {almost 44 shhh}-Celebrate all weekend!

    Fav shops & what goodies caught my eyes:

    Brooklyn Soul-those romantic Nouveou2 romantic earrings!
    Panopoly- a mix of the blue-green star buttons with the desert sand star buttons to use for scrapbooking and altered art
    and lastly BerdandBee’s ultra cool Handpainted Tree Coffee Mug-I’d like to have gc towards a pair…very very cool stuff

  62. Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Jeeeeennnnn, happy birthday to you!

    my choices
    1. maiziedesigns, solstice necklace
    2. panapoly, a pendant and a wee bowl
    3. Berd and Bee, the tree coffee mug and serving plate.

    such a hard choice to make!

  63. May your day — and live — be filled with joy!

    I love that solstice necklace so even though everything is beautiful, I’d go with that. Oh my, she’s got some pretty earrings, too. The frozen lemonade ones are fantastic.

    Second? How can anything so beautiful be second? So second first: lillyella’s garden branch bracelets and Secret Life of Bees earrings.

    Third first: abelmabel’s Sparrow collage. Sweet but more than sweet; simple but complicated. Wonderful.

    Why oh why haven’t I been doing more shopping on etsy? Thank you for bringing these artists to my attention — I just needed a little push!

  64. Happy birthday hope its great πŸ™‚

    1)panopoly is way cool, those buttons rock to no end!
    2) Hilary Caroline Jewelry is way to AMZING!!!
    3)Lillyella is extremely neat too

    thanks, i hope you have/had a fab birthday πŸ™‚

  65. Happy Birthday Jen! I think old ladies are cool, but old to me is like 70. I’m actually in a couples group and we call ourselves the “Pre-Old Couples!”

    I love this stash pouch from Able Mabel:

    Berd & Bee’s handpainted monogram mug is a great item:

    Up Up’s printable calendar is like the paper pda that I always wanted:

  66. Hi and happy birthday! My favourite ones (although I like all of them) are:
    -Panopoly: as a knitter myself, I always love beautifull buttons for my handknits. And Panopoly has lots and lots of them!!
    -Berd&bee: I like all their mugs… but what really catches me is the vintage metal pear.
    -Able Mabel: their stash-n-go purse or any of their minky blankets… and yes, I have a little girl who’s willing to use them ;).

  67. I hope you had a great birthday! I didn’t feel old until I found my first gray hair last week. Is it normal to start getting gray hairs at 34? Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t. Pretty soon my grandmother and I are going to look like twinsies. Happy Birthday!!

    Berd & Bee: Handpainted Tree Serving Plate

    Able Mabel: Blue Flower Half-apron

    Lillyella: Silver Garden Branch Bracelet


  68. singing….Happy Birthday to you, and 100 more! Very generous gifts. I am actually entering for my niece. Her birthday is 6/20 and she loves jewelry! I love the Brooklyn Soul, Penelope Rakov and Hilary Caroline shops.

    So next week is my birthday too! I love being a June baby– lots of sunshine and pool time and bbqs.

    If I would win I would first go for Abel Mabel’s “a purse that blooms” I am dying for a summer purse with a floral print!

    2nd, I would go for the Frolic Necklace from Maize

    Finally, I adore the silver leaf garland bracelet by Lillyella

    Thank you so much!

  165. First off, Happy Birthday! Thanks for having such an awesome giveaway on your special day.

    Here’s what I love:

    My favorite is Lilly Ella; I just love how the jewelry is inspired by nature. I would be exited to have the locket, any of the pretty posey earrings, or the starling plume bracelet.

    I’m also diggin’ Berd & Bee! A soy tree candle or any of their mugs would be nice in my apartment.

    Also… I love the stuff I see at Brooklyn Soul, especially the vine necklace.

    Good luck to me and Happy Birthday to you!!!

  166. Many blessings to you on your b-day!

    I love Hilary’s Photography, particularly the State Fair pics.
    I adore the millefiori Penelope Ralcov necklaces. Gorgeous.
    Finally the Brooklyn soul oak leaf bangle is to die for!!!

    I wish you lots of health, joy and peace this year. Much love.

    So generous on your birthday when you should have other people give stuff to you πŸ˜‰

    Lets see… I love maizie designs… her jewelry is so beautiful! I also like Panopoly creations… Such awesome ceramic stuff that I normally wouldn’t treat myself to. And finally I love Up Up.. I think the cards and stationary are darling!

  171. Happy Birthday Jen! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

    All of the shops would be great to shop from, but if I have to choose 3 I would choose
    Able Mable and I would buy this for sure

    Lillyella, not for sure cause I’m loving a few of the items

    Maizie Designs, love this necklace also, its beautiful

  172. Happy Birthday! I recently turned “that old” too. Major milestone birthdays never seem to bother me, but then I set up random milestone years that tear me up! But, here I am on the other side of the big number and you know what? The view is pretty much the same as it was on the other side! πŸ™‚

    O.k., lessee…

    I loved:

    1. Able Mabel — the light switch covers. I especially loved the Little Red Hen. It was my favorite story as a kid.

    2. Brooklyn Soul — Beautiful Oak Leaf Bangle!

    3. Up Up Creative — it was all so wonderful it was hard to choose! But I liked the personalized stationary and the Crazy Love Card III.

    Again, have a wonderful day!

  173. My fav 3 stores and my picks:
    – Lillyella: the Blossom Cluster Necklace in Silver
    – Brooklyn Soul: the Flutter earrings ($1 short, lol)
    – Hilary Caroline Jewelry: the Sunny – Almond Chrysanthemum Flower and Faceted Yellow Crystal Beads on Gold Chain Necklace

    And Happy Birthday to you.
