2. Phrase that could describe my youngest, Ben. He wants to grow up and move on from the drudgery of school, but I don't think he gets the whole "pay your own way/clean your own house" concept. :)
3. The name I've given the giveaway of crafty stuff pictured below!
April 30 is when Ben turns the BIG 13! To celebrate my sweetheart of a son, I'd like to give all this goodness away—13 fresh new products and a bonus collection of items from my stash that I think you might want to try.
I put in some Bingo numbers, Tim Holtz washi tape that I don't use, journaling cards, flare and Polaroid die-cuts from Studio Calico, wooden word tiles from Melody Ross, paper straws and more!
The brand-new items are mini alphies from Crate Paper, blue twine from Webster's Pages, Basic Grey items from Fact & Fiction (a 6x6 paper pad, journaling cards and transparencies, printed chipboard album, fabric labels, printed wooden buttons and more), some Martha Stewart congratulations-printed ribbon and of course some glittery White Blossom stickers and a crystal rainbow sticker from Mark Richards. Whew! That's not all, but this is getting too long. Click on the picture to see more.
To enter, all ya gotta do is leave Ben a comment below by April 30th*. I think he'd enjoy hearing Happy Birthday from around the country and world. If you have a fave quote, add that in, if you have advice for being a teenager, go ahead and put that in your comment. If you just wanna say Happy Birthday or Hi from your state/country, that's cool too! Ben is in 7th grade, likes the Avengers, writing comics, Team Fortress 2, Dr. Who, and Harry Potter. He has a big heart and still gives me hugs in front of his classmates. He wants to be an actor or comedian when he grows up and he is, in fact, kind of hilarious.
Thanks for helping me celebrate my youngest, who is nearly as tall as me and cannot wait to be taller. Here are my beautiful kids last weekend in a phone pic.
*please comment by April 30th at midnight EST to qualify for the giveaway. If you're from out of the country, I will substitute a gift certificate to a crafty place as the prize due to shipping costs, thanks!
