Wow!! I can’t believe this is the fourth year of my Giving Challenge, the project that I do every November. As I reflect back on this year, I realize that it’s been a crazy one. 2015 has been filled with a family vacation, selling of a home, searching for a new one to rent, moving states, and driving back and forth between New Mexico and Arizona (a lot, because I still work for the same company).


As I look back, I see how incredibly blessed I am. Blessed to have a wonderful family that’s given me strong values and beliefs, and a wonderful husband that loves and supports me even if I am a little crazy, and probably drive him nuts. Thank you for being there for me.


How am I doing?… “better than I deserve” (insert Dave Ramsey’s voice).

This month is the month that I take in all of my blessings and give back. How? you may ask..

  1. By giving away projects that I’ve created to organizations that work with families or children that need a little extra.
  2. Giving back to the quilting community. (I really like how the giveways went last year so I am bringing them back)
  3. And volunteering at local organizations. (still need to look for a place… maybe a food bank)


To officially kick-off this month of thanks and giving, I am having a giveaway! We will have two lucky winners. Gift # 1 will be a layered cake of Fresh Cut by Basic Grey, along with coordinating extra fabric and Gift # 2 will be a layered cake of Paradiso by Kate Spain. To enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post. Write about anything you want… what was your favorite Brown Bird blog post of this year? what gift you like more? what you would do with it? All comments are welcomed!
I will announce the winner on the 23rd of November. Don’t forget to come back and check to see if you’re the lucky winner! Good luck!
