Here's the detail:

  • Stampotique image "Heart Boy"
  • Inkssentials Craft Scrubbie
  • Artist's Loft watercolor brushes
  • Dyan Reaveley's "My Creative Journal Journey"
  • Heidi Swapp's chipboard stickers

  14. Happy Birthday in advance. Personally, I think you should celebrate for the entire month or even two. And then you should go away on vacation to some place warm and tropical that has cute cabana boys.

    Something about me that you don't know. Hmmm. I love the number 13.

  25. Hi Kay! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Or as we say here in Holland, "GEFELICITEERD!". I'm happily following your blog (as of today) and enjoy encountering you on the Craftorij page. Something you don't know about me: I actually grew up in the U.S. and Canada but am officially Dutch and have been living in The Netherlands for almost 20 years now (yikes!). Always happy to be back stateside, though! (hopefully next summer)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well Kay, Happy Happy to you. I would never have guessed. Big congrats. What a great year to get picked for Stampoutiques DT. So much for the ageist nay-sayers. Big big hug. Probably lots you don't know about me. Uhhhh.... I have rabbits and chickens and fish and a cat and I love to garden and grow my own fruit and vegetables. We are firm supporters of local food. Have a great month/party/birthday and thanks for the fab giveaway.

  34. Happy Birthday to you, Kay,
    and enjoy the month of festivities! ;)
    You already know that I only have two Stampotique stamps...erm...and you might therefore as well know (or at least presume) that I really envy you for all the wonderful stamps you have (they aren't easy to get over here in tiny Austria...*sigh ;). I love what you create with them and I hope to see a lot more of it!

    Hugs and wishes,
    Claudia x

    Anyway, something you didn't know about me…. I am very Dutch (Holland is very flat) but I have climbed South Wales' highest peak and Irelands highest mountain !!
    Have a wonderful birthday month !!

  37. Happy Birthday month, Kay! What a beautiful way to celebrate such a wonderful time in your life. Since I am new to your blog, I guess anything about me would be considered new info so, I love Stampotique stamps, especially the ones by Mister Torrente. I am also a fan of the weird and unique, which includes taxidermy, apothecary bottles, and antique doll heads. Thank you for the chance to win such a great prize. Hugs, Glo

  38. Congrats! 70 is quite an accomplishment and something to be proud of. I learned not too long ago that getting older is a privilege that not everyone gets to enjoy. I'm looking forward to your 2014 creations.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Happy Birthday!!!! Your giveaway is amazing!
    Something about me you might not know..is I have 4 tatoo's..nobody really knows that..so I'm telling you my secret..LOL

    ReplyDelete
  40. Let's see, if there is something you don't know about me, then I would be in big trouble. Just 7 items to be given away? How wimpy. I think it should be 70, 1 item for each year. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice give away, but how often do you turn 70?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am a relatively new stamper but an avid journaler so this is right up my alley. Happy BIrthday!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Happy Birthday! Thank you for sharing your "party" with us through this sweet giveaway. One of my goals for 2014 is to be more creative, so I've subscribed to your blog to help me do just that! I hope 70 is a milestone year for you.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy Birthday! You don't know it but I have absolutely nothing Stampotique. I also love your art, betcha didn't know that either.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Happy birthday month! Hmm....something about me? I'm an avid baker!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Happy Birthday, Kay!! As I always say, love your enthusiasm at this age :)
    And what you don't know about me...I am avid reader..apart from playing with my paints, I read lot of fiction books :)
    and hey, my daughter celebrates her birthday in Jan, too :)

  46. Congrats on your 70th...you look 50! What a generous giveaway :)

  47. Happy Birthday Kay! I just found you via a friend...and I have finally just ordered my first two Stampotique stamps after desiring for them for around 3 years! They are not so easy to come by here in Aus!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Happy 70th birthday how exciting for you & I get a new blog to follow. At present I have my 2nd granddaughter with me & we are having fun creating. Miss 8 designed & made a mini canvas & card for her grandma, shes doing well & she really does not get that much time to create with me :)

  50. Happy birthday Kay! :) What a wonderful way to celebrate. I'm a new follower to your blog so you don't really know anything about me yet (although we exchanged emails some time ago, remember? :) ). So what should I tell you about me? Hmm... Well, I can say 'I love you' in 8 languages! And I can swear in 4! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  51. Happy Birthday! I'm new yo your blog, so i'd start by saying i bet you wouldn't know i'm a rubber stamp addict!!! love stampotique stamps, but don't yet own any as they don't sell them locally and i'm just starting to buy stamps online... Oh and I love all things Odd/Obscure!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Happy Birthday x Thanks for the chance to win. Something you don't know about me... probably quite a lot actually, so what to tell you ? ponder, ponder ..... I am from the UK but very happily residing in Canada now :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a kind thing to do for your birthday!!! Here's hoping that you get lots of lovely goodies on your birthday just for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. ooops, forgot the 'something about me'!! Hmm, I love reading the comments that you leave on my blog; I've not got a special birthday for a while yet; my Mum makes little bears and sells them at Hamley's in London :) Have a great day

  60. I just found you, I know, you did not know you were lost. Love your work, hope you have a Happy Birthday month. I think I will do the same when I turn 65 in May.

  61. Well, seven decades is certainly worth celebrating, and what a lovely way to celebrate it! I thought I already was a follower, but it seems not - have rectified that now!

    Hmm... I'm inclined to share a guilty pleasure, as I don't think it's something you'd probably work out from reading Words and Pictures: I have a hidden love of the X-Factor (and sometimes even Britain's Got Talent - but only the uplifting stories from that one, caught up with later on youtube. I can't bear the XXXs going up on the other acts!). Is that revealing enough? Shhh.. don't tell everyone! Off to pop this on my sidebar...
    And Happy Birthday!

  62. Happy Birthday month Kay!
    Something about me?? When that volcano in Iceland erupted I got stuck in Portugal !!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Happy Capricorn January! What you don't know about me is that I have a dream of starting a not-for-profit organization that donates high quality art supplies to organizations which support teens and adults on the autism spectrum. Writing business plans ain't fun!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Kay, I'm happy to be a follower now. I've not been very creative for quite awhile and I really need to get back into this! Your giveaway is awesome, so very nice of you! I did an ATC swap and that was so fun to do! Something you may not know about me is I love to travel and I am fluent in ASL (American Sign Language). Best wishes to you

    ReplyDelete
  65. Happy birthday month, Kay!! Something about me you may not know...hmm. These days, I craft as a matter of survival. ;) I have some severe anxiety issues and crafting keeps me sane.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Happy happy birthday, Kay!
    I follow your blog...something you may not know about me...the first dog I ever adopted had only one eye ;)

  69. Happy B'day and congrats on meeting this milestone. I love your art and have been following you for just a little while now but glad I found you. What you don't know about me is that I can touch my tongue to my nose. TMI LOL thanks for the opp to win such great prizes.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Happy B'day and congratulations :) Nice blog and beautiful projects. I'm following and I hope that you will come to my blog and follow on my blog too. What you don't know about me is that I didn't pass driving licence more than 10 times :) Best wishes Mary

  72. This is exciting, Kay! What a lovely way to celebrate your milestone birthday! You are a gem! xox

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh oops...I forgot the "Something you don't know about me"... Perhaps you don't know that I've always felt that I was an artist...from about the third grade. I earned a BA in Fine Arts, but got lured into the restaurant business after falling madly in love my graduating year...I've been trying to get back on track ever since.
