Giveaway - a gift in honor of my mom's birthday

As a thank you to my blog readers, I want to share a gift.

From my family to yours; a reminder that celebration comes in all shades and in all seasons. 

I hand-stitched the little felt bunting and the caption, and framed it in a 6.5" embroidery hoop. It's ready to hang wherever it will remind you to appreciate all of life's gifts.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post (include your email!) and I'll randomly select one comment on February 1st.

I made one for Mom, too.

Her birthday party was really special. We laughed a lot, listened to records my dad's been collecting from Goodwill (the nursing home's sound system is a little outdated), enjoyed our cheese and cracker platter and fruit juice courtesy of the dining hall, and ate cupcakes my sister made. So much love in one room.



  1. Yay! Happy Birthday Mom, I hope she had a great day :)

  2. I love how joyful the Johnson family is! No matter the ups and Downs you guys sure know how to celebrate!

  3. Sweet Emily,
    The stories of your family inspire me to be a force for love and togetherness in my own family. I pray that when my boys are grown I am as loved by them as your mom is by you. You all are a real treasure to her. I'd love to win that sweet little banner, but more than that I want you to know what a blessing you are. <3 Happy Birthday Mama!

  4. I can't believe you made those! They are so great. I would be honored to hang one in my house.

    Happy Birthday to your dear sweet mom...she looks like she had a blast.
