Birthday Week Day One

It's my birthday, but you're getting presents! I am turning 30 and while I do not feel 30, I do feel the need to celebrate. So.....up first....I will be giving away this book bag that has been upcycled from a t-shirt. It is fully lined with cream canvas which gives it a little structure and means the t-shirt material will not stretch! I use one of these for myself in my job as a teacher and they are incredibly comfortable and totally unique! There are inner pockets for keys, id, or a cell phone. To win, just leave a comment sometime during the day today! I will draw the winner's name at the end of the day! Good luck!

happiest BIRTHDAY wishes to YOU!

Happy Birthday. That bag is very clever. I often wonder what to do with ALL of these t-shirts from places. They mean too much to throw away, but the kids outgrow them or don't wear them. I'm going to check out your etsy store, too!

Miss Grace said...

I'd like that. Happy birthday!

Jennifer said...

Neat bag! Happy Birthday to you!! I turn 29 on the 3rd, so I'm a year from 30 myself!

Joanne said...

Happy Birthday! That is cool what you did with the bag.

I wandered over to your blog from SITS.

Happy 30 Birthday! I am coming up on 40 in a few weeks, and I still do not feel 40! hehe

Happy birthday! I hope you get some presents, too, because you definitely deserve them!

This bag is so clever. I love these funny graphic tee-shirts, but I'm too old to wear them. This is an example of why I want to learn to sew.

Fun bag! I'm totally in. I'm not sure that I felt 30 when I turned 30, but I didn't know what it was supposed to feel like! LOL. I'm excited for your birthday week. Must be like one big party from Christmas to New Year's for you, right? :)

Happy Birthday! This is such a cute bag! I'm visiting your blog from SITS.

I got a bag just like this from you in the summer and it has taken a licking since then! You would never know it. I cram so much stuff in it and it holds it all! It even went through the wash when my Dr. Pepper spilled inside of it.

Have a great b-day week!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I share your sentiment. I turn 30 this January, and I don't feel 30 in anyway. Mark your calendar for January 18th. We will celebrate our birthdays together!

PEACE!

Happy Birthday to you!

Love the bag. :)

Wanda said...

Wow....30?! That's a great birthday. Growing up is hard to do. My own #30 was tough. Hubby was in seminary and we were far from family.
Now....that was a looooong time ago. What a treasure it would be to be that age again!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! :)
Enjoy it.

Happy Birthday!!!

Tranquility said...

Hi - saw your blog listed on SITS and decided to pop on over. What a cool idea (turning a t-shirt into a bag)! I have a few old concert t-shirts that I've been looking for a creative purpose for.

Suzi said...

Happy Birthday to you! Great bag, great idea! Hope your Birthday wishes are fulfilled.
