  35. Happy Birthday to you, Paper Pixie ! I am an SU Demonstrator in Illinois, and because this is one of our sons’ birthday month, I have been salivating for my birthday in June (NOT the high number of years)! This family requests pies instead of birthday cake! So my favorite way to celebrate my birthday is with family and strawberry rhubarb pie! This month it is key lime pie for the son and pizza bread and tortellini and meatballs for dinner (yes, all 3 of our adult children make the same birthday dinner request PLUS their individual pie choice!).

  36. I love celebrating my birthday with my husband, daughters and 2 grand babies! Enjoying our time

  70. Happy Birthday, Julie! I hope your day is filled with love, laughter, and family! My birthday is in April. Our grown children and their families live many hundreds of miles away, so birthdays here are very quiet.

    Have a very happy birthday Julie, may it be the best birthday yet

  73. First Happy Birthday to you!
    Some years are harder than others to do what I love. I love getting to spend some time with my husband and children. But as our children are now grown with children of their own it is harder to get time with them. But I still love hearing from them. But my husband’s birthday is different because his birthday is the 4th of July so all our kids are off work and are available to celebrate with us. As a bonus our small town has a parade to add to the festivities.

  74. Happy Birthday! When my great granny was alive, I looked forward to her baking me a pecan pie. It is my favorite dessert and hers was filled with lots of pecans and love. Now, my grandmother, an equally exceptional baker, makes me a German chocolate cake. There is never a shortage of love showered upon me on my birthday. I am blessed to have my grandparents, grandchildren, daughter and husband there to make me feel special. I hope you day is as special as mine it. Love and hugs, Stacy

  75. Happy Birthday Julie! I love your blog!
    My birthday is near Christmas so lots of celebration is always happening already!! My dear husband always takes me to a special restaurant for dinner and gifts me with a bouquet of flowers to brighten the winter day. Phone calls from my six children who live all across the USA are another special gift!

I hope you have a wonderful day, you deserve it! Bless you.

  86. Happy birthday! I hope that you enjoy your *Special* Day! My favorite thing I like to do on my birthday is spend time with my family.

  87. My birthday is in the middle of summer. I enjoy sitting on my balcony, some ice cream and a good cup of coffee (i.e. Cappucchino or Latte Macchiato) by my side, watching the sun go down. Especially when the sunlight turns to orange, pink and at last in a deep bloody red. Wow!

I love the time together, just enjoying the calmer things in life!
    Happy Birthday again! Enjoy your special day!!!
    Blessings ~
    Linda K.

  93. At home my daughter and I look at all the scrapbooks and pictures from when I was little and compare them to hers to see how much we look alike or did the same things but many years apart. My husband buys me flowers or a new plant for the yard. And at work (I own a child care center with 120 littles) and they like to draw me my own parking spot in chalk with my name on it and paint a big birthday banner and hang it on the fence. They made sure on my 50th that the 50 was nice and big that way everyone that drove by knew how old I was. (Thanks for that).

    Happy Birthday Julie enjoy your day in your special way!

  94. On my birthday I like to relax. Maybe just visiting with my son and husband. Last year I just wanted to go riding around the area I was born and raised and then drove backroads reminiscing. Stopped and had fish for lunch amended the day at a DQ for a cone. Just a laidback day.

  95. Happy Birthday!!
    I am happiest when I have my family around to celebrate! Not an easy feat when children are grown have families of their own and live across the country!!
    Love your projects – thanks for sharing!!

  96. My favorite thing to do for my birthday is to pick up dinner from somewhere and have a relaxing evening with my family.

  97. I always take the day off from work on my birthday. That reduces the chance that someone will spoil my day, and I believe in being good to myself!

  98. Julie now that my children have grown and moved away, and now I have grandchildren , I prefer to spend my birthday celebration with my children and grandchildren. Whatever we do is fine. Usually they come her and I fix a huge dinner. Happiest when we’re together

  99. As long as I am with family and friends it doesn’t matter what I am doing (as long as I can craft after they are away, lol)

  100. Buy myself a Mylar birthday balloon. My hubby hates balloons, kind of like clowns, but I get one once a year for a day before he pops it.

  101. Happy Birthday Julie,
    My favorite thing to do is go out to dinner with my family and have dessert, either cheesecake or mud pie! Yes! 🙂

  102. I hope you have a wonderful birthday! I love wonderful birthday dinners. It’s the best when my husband lets me pick the menu and then cooks it for me. Of course I still have to do dishes.

  103. Oh, generous Julie…I have a May BD….so what I love to do on that day, is go to a garden center and buy flowers for my containers, with a gift card!!! Happy Birthday!!!

  104. My husband and I have birthdays 2 weeks apart so we usually plan a trip somewhere. Beyond that, nothing beats the hugs from my son and grandsons to make my day that much more special! Have a wonderful day of celebration with family and friends!

  106. Happy Birthday Julie!
    My birthday is in June. Hubby usually takes me to dinner. I am always grateful when people remember my birthday. I make it a point to call or if I’m really on my toes, send a birthday card!!

  107. Birthday blessings to you, Julie, on this day of celebrating you!
    On my birthday I take myself out to eat (am single with sisters in the area, but we don’t celebrate together) to celebrate me. I also like to look at past birthday cards I have received over the years. Thanking God for my life is also a delight I do on my birthday.

  108. I love having my very best friends & family over for wine & snacks for the day & just kick back, relax & enjoy each other’s company.

  130. Happy birthday!! Hope you have a wonderful day. I like to go out to eat for my birthday. It doesn’t have to be a fancy place-just a nice meal that I don’t have to cook!

  131. I am happiest on any birthday spent with my family (hubby, children and grandchildren)! I hope your birthday was special as well!

  132. I love to collect birthday money to buy my stampin goodies
    Yayyyyyy , and my Anniversary is a day before and that ends up , not much but better then nothing

  133. Happy Birthday! On my birthday I enjoy celebrating with family and friends, eating out and sharing some cake and ice cream!

  134. Love just being surprised by my family in the simplest of things ! Living in the moment of what they do . They have no idea I celebrate daily because they are apart of my life !

  135. I like going on a weekend stamp/craft retreat with friends. Giving each person special pillow gift each night. Celebrating life.

  136. Happy Birthday Julie!

    For my birthday I love to curl up with a book and a cup of herbal tea. A few new crafting supplies there’s always a plus two.

  139. I wish you a happy birthday filled with abundant blessings!! I love just spending my birthday with my family!!

  140. What sweet blog candy! I love all your 3D items and appreciate the videos and templates. I have been married to my high school sweet for almost 44 years (June 28). On my birthday he always sends my mom flowers with a sweet note of thanks for raising me as she did. That is always one of my best presents, to know he loves my mom too!

  141. Happy birthday! I know you’ll enjoy it. I’m kind of weird when it comes to my birthday. On the actual day, I like to turn off the phone ringer, ignore the doorbell & will often take a day trip by myself, just do what I want to do. Friends, family & I will celebrate throughout the month by going to a movie or lunch or dinner–or all. ☺

  142. Happy Birthday to you. Hope you enjoyed your day. I enjoy my family doing dinner for me and having my fav birthday cake they make for me every year.

  143. My favourite thing to do on my birthday is to go shopping and then halve my husband and children do the dinner.

  144. I celebrate my birthday by having lunch or dinner with my family and having breakfast with my long time friends. Love Facebook Wednesday!

  145. Hi Julie, my birthday is next week! I enjoy a trip down to the beach with my husband and maybe a little shopping 🙂
    Hope you have a great birthday!

  146. Happy Happy Birthday Julie, I hope you have special day full of blessings. My favorite thing to do on my birthday is spend it with family. To me it doesn’t matter what I do or where I am, The most important thing is who I’m with. Thanks for doing this giveaway, Hugs!

  147. Happy Birthday! I think we can all wait for your video as you should spend your birthday time with your family. My birthday is Tuesday and I like to go out to dinner in a restaurant rather than cooking my own dinner. I can do without the presents, just feed me LOL!


  149. “Happy Birthday,Julie”. Hope you have a wonderful peace-filled day!
    I love spending time with friends and family. Actually one of the best parts of my birth date is I get to Celebrate for a couple weeks, and sometimes into the next month. as I have special friends who treat me to lunch and it gives us a wonderful time to bond and match notes with them one-on-one!
    Blessings on your special Day, Julie, and always!!!!! Elaine

  150. Happy Birthday to you Julie! My favorite thing to do on my birthday is be with my family celebrating. We don’t have to go anywhere as long as we are together!

  151. Happy Birthday Julie! Have a super fun night. My favorite thing to do on my birthday is to buy about 6 balloons, go to a park and release them to the sky. Also to have a Strawberry Sundae!

  152. Hope your birthday was as special as you are. May God bless you and your family with many more birthdays to come!

  153. I wish you a very Happy Birthday with love, health, happiness, and creativity. I always enjoy your projects and I hope you will continue to share them. (I love the little various boxes you make. This weekend, I will try to do the pineapple one).

    Thanks again and Happy Birthday.

  154. Happy Birthday !!!
    I love celebrating all week long a coffee with one friend, lunch with another, a movie in the weekend 🙂

  155. I love to just take time for myself and spend undisturbed time in my craft space creating something!
    Oh and having a tiny piece of a cake I DID NOT BAKE!
    Happy Birthday Sweetie!

  156. Happy Birthday! I hope it’s a great one. I have 3 friends that all have birthdays within a few days of mine so we have an annual lunch or dinner date where we all celebrate together. It’s so special!

  157. I love celebrating my birthday with my dad. My birthday is April 29rh and his is May 1. We both love the casino so this year we will be celebrating at the largest casino in the United States. Last year we went to Hawaii. My dad will be 80 years old this year.

  158. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Julie. I try to make it a birthday weekend, having a nice dinner out with my husband and kids, some shopping, nail salon (a little indulgence for yourself like placing a Stampin up order).
    Always having a birthday cake and singing the “happy birthday” song. Enjoy!

  159. I enjoy making a fuss over other people’s birthdays, but for my day? Just a treat of a fancy coffee and some quiet time for crafting!

  160. Wowza, what an awesome giveaway! Happy Birthday, first & foremost! On my birthday, my favorite, once-a-year treat is to have TIRAMISU!!! Yum! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  161. Happy Birthday Julie!! I’m a new subbie to your channel, but not new to SU products. I love to watch what you create. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful projects with us. For my birthday, I usually try to plan a vacation around the same week as my Birthday. I love being away and just relaxing on some warm beautiful beach. This usually does the trick for me along with a nice dnner and dessert. My birthday usually fall Memorial weekend so if I can’t plan a vacation, it’s usually an out of town trip. Monterey Ca. Is one of my fav spots. Lol

  162. Happy Birthday! I like to go to lunch with friends and dinner with family. be with the people who mean most to me.

  163. I love to make a homemade scratch Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese icing !!! That is to take one layer and slice it in half, ice it and stack the next layer cake on top ice it then take the second cake and repeat. Put a few South Ga Fresh Pecans on top for decoration on the icing. Of Course celebrating with family and friends is an important part!

  164. Birthday celebration every year – hmm! For some time now it has been a day to truly appreciate and reflect on life. This includes all of the angels past and present in my life. (Family and friends). And of course my beloved self therapy of creating. Thank you for being one of those angels through your sweetness and inspiration. God Bless & Happy Birthday!

  165. I like just relaxing on my birthday. Being at the end of March it’s the last of the lazy winter days so it is often a pj day. If I go out it’s just for dinner. Ordering pizza to be delivered works for me.

  166. Absolutely NOTHING “planned”!!! I don’t want the stress of having to be somewhere at a specific time. I just want to be at peace doing whatever it is that I want to do (just for one day)… crafting is always AWESOME (and might I add, without any distraction)!

  167. All I really want is to have dinner or something with just my 2 girls and husband. Life is so busy, so enjoying family time is the best gift I could ask for.

  168. Happy, Happy Birthday, Dear Julie!!!! I know you will be showered with love from family and friends, and am wishing your day to be “simply the best!” Have fun be loved and being so happy! Best wishes for the year ahead, too! Hugs, with love!! xoxo (no prize patrol needed, have fun gifting to another!xox)

  169. My birthday always falls during fair week. I usually spend the day watching ny grandchildren show their pigs and steers. I wouldn’t spend it any other way. I get to be not only with my grandchildren but also my husband, my daughters and my son-in-law! It can’t get any better than that!

  170. My late mother and I would share a dinner out to celebrate our birthdays at the end of the year. Usually at a favorite restaurant

  171. For my birthday, since my son was born on my 35th birthday & NOT by
    C-section lol We like to celebrate together at Dinner.

  172. I love to have a special meal (Italian) and a tasty dessert (French silk pie this Monday)!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  173. I like to take the day off of work. Where I work I wear a badge with my birthday on it for everyone to see. And because start work at 300 am it’s nice to have the next day off too, so I can stay up and celebrate with the family. Hope you have a special birthday Julie.

  174. for my december birthday_first thing is to sleep as late as i want.followed by my husband’s homemade waffles.maybe some snowshoeing.if too cold play board games.all of this is made better if our only child can join us (for a few days).

  175. The one thing I love to do is be with family.
    For me, it’s all about family and it doesn’t matter what we do that day but that we are doing it together and it always turns out to be a wonderful day.
    Happy Birthday, Julie. Thank you for your wonderful posts.
