Today, i am 40!

I can't believe it...but i turned 40 today! It sounds so old and probably in looks i am quite old but i do feel i am still on my 30's. ha...ha...I've mentioned to one of our friends over here that i dreaded it and so i am not going to celebrate this year. Not really, it has been very busy here lately so we would like to get out for a few days. Oh well, it didn't put her off and brought me her gift and a card last week. The card really makes me laugh...i'll try to translate:
((you can click to enlarge if you want))
40 doesn't mean life is over, you still have lots to look forward too..
*menopause
*more wrinkles
*and more ointment to camouflage
*becoming 50
therefore be cheerful and on to 41!

These pictures was taken last week. I went to get my hair trimmed last week and afterwards i let it braided, i didn't remove for the night so the next day it looks like this. I love it but pity i can't braid it myself from top to bottom to get this effect whenever i want.

Since i am not going to celebrate it here at home i thought to celebrate it here on my blog with a giveaway and also as a special thank you for all your friendship. I am so very grateful for each visit you make, each comment you leave, and each email that you send my way. So, here is what i've finsihed so far, A scissor case with the matching scissor fob. I've only manage to complete the pink one for now but if the winner prefer the green one, i'm sure it will be finish by then.
The giveaway is open to everyone! Please indicate if you want to be entered and if possible to leave an e-mail address. It is open until the 4th of January.

I ám a bit of a hurry for this post as i need to do more packing and some gifts to wrap so i haven't the time to go and search who the designer is of this freebie. I will look for it when we get back after Christmas.
(i hope it will work as i schedule this post for the 24th)

Here’s wishing all of you a Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy & healthy New Year!

Happy Happy Birthday Mylene! You look sooo fabulous. I would have never guessed you were 40! I love the pictures. You are beautiful indeed.
Love the giveaway! I feel so guilty I haven't blogged about the wonderful ornament that you sent me. My good intentions have been disrupted may times! I will after Christmas when all of my sewing is done! (I better get going!)
Have a wonderful Birthday and Christmas!
Hugs.

Well, Happy Birthday. Speaking from experience, turning 40 isn't all that bad. Neither is turning 50 or 60.
Please include me in your drawing.

Happy 40th Birthday Mylene!

40 isn't old! 40 is the new 20, didn't you hear?

Your hair is just gorgeous! I've never had hair much longer than slightly past my shoulders. Now it's real short because I hate taking the time to dry it. If my hair was as pretty as yours though, I probably would not mind all the work.

I hope you had a special day! I'd love to be entered into your giveaway!

Irene said...
