A friend I haven’t met yet

is having a “Big Birthday Mega 40 Giveaways” to celebrate her 40th birthday. Of course, we more mature folk know that 40 isn’t really such a Big birthday at all. She is but a spring chicken.

Janelle is generously orchestrating 40 separate giveaways on her blog. How crazy is that?

I thought it might be nice to join in and offer a prize for one of her giveaways, so if you are keen to win yourself a little girl elephant, you just need to pop over to Janelle Wind’s blog and leave a comment – while you are there, you should check out ALL the giveaways. Spend some time and look at Janelle’s gorgeous creations, patterns, books – she does it all!

What an awesome way to celebrate a birthday.janellesbirthday

Sorry for the rush, people, I’ll be back tomorrow !

  13. I love her! Would I have to share with my four year old?

    I suppose so - unless i wanted to keep her in the closet and that's no fun for anyone.

  15. What a great birthday gift. Your very little girl elephant is a cute version of an over 40 girl - grey hair, larger ears (hearing aids?) to hear all the goss, a little extra around the middle, the ability to buy and wear quality clothing, and last but not least, looking better than at any other age that came before.

  16. That elephant is KILLING ME WITH CUTENESS!!! We have been given so many elephants for my little girl. I wonder if there is a special meaning? This beauty would be a very welcome addition! xoxo

  17. Hi! This elephant is adorable! Janelle is going to cost me so much money by showing me to all these new blogs and stores. Your blog is great and your patterns are great too! I can't decide if I like Baxter, Ernst or Reuben the most...then there's the 3 maids and...all of them! Love them. I'll be back!!
