A birthday give-a-way!

Today is my birthday, and, in honor of my birthday, I'm doing a give-a-way!  I embroidered this happy little sun and text and framed it - and it's yours if you're the lucky one! I made one for myself and I made an identical one for you.

My frame is on the wall right beside the chalkboard in our kitchen/eat-in area.
I see it as I leave out the door each morning.

The biggest and bestest gift I can give myself is the advice to sloooow down and take the time to appreciate the moment. That's what the saying, "Now is the time to be happy" means to me. Be happy right now. Don't be stuck waiting for something else to happen. Appreciate the here and now because it's pretty special.

Here's how to enter the give-a-way:

1.) Leave a comment {make sure I have your email address}
2.) For an extra entry, tweet about my give-a-way with a link to this post.
3.) For another extra entry, put a link to this post on your Facebook page.

{if you do the extra entries, please let me know in the comments so that I can count them!}

The give-a-way closes at 8 p.m. on Monday, April 2 

Some more shots of the piece:

I embroidered the sun and text onto linen fabric using yellow and black thread, stuck it to a backing board, put a mat on it and framed it. The sun and text is my own design. The frame measures 8x10 and is wood.

Good luck, and, take the time today to sit back and enjoy yourself.
