A B-Day, a Fabric Line & a Giveaway!

Dear friends,
As you must all know by my multiple previous announcements ;)
that today is my 44th birdthday!!!!
And if that wasn't exciting enough I also want to show you
my new line of organic cotton fabrics in collaboration with Cloud 9 Fabrics!
The collection is called Alegria which means "happiness" in Spanish.
Available in the Spring of 2012 :)
I am incredibly honored to be a part of the Designer Series at Cloud9Fabrics. Michelle was like a dream to work with.
It has been a really wonderful experience that has been brewing for a whole year!
To celebrate I'll be hosting a fun giveaway bundle that will include a copy of this book,
a 6 x 6 inches watercolor/collage original birdie, three prints from my shop
among many other surprise paper goodies!
Leave a comment on this post with your contact info so I can find you if you win.
I'll pick a random lucky winner tomorrow morning when I wake up
& I'll announce it later in the day.
Happy birthday to all my b-day twins that read the blog!
***Anyone in the whole wide world can participate, I will ship wherever you are!***
Please comment just once, any duplicates will be deleted.

UPDATE: Comments are now closed. I will announce the winner later today.
