Today is my Birthday! {A Giveaway for you!}

via Pinterest, source The Sweetest Occasion

Yes friends, its my birthday. Today marks the beginning of the last year in my 20's, as I turned 29 this morning! My early 20's self sure wouldn't recognize me - as there is no way I would have guessed that I would have my own business, let alone that it would involve sewing! My 20's have sure been a wild ride filled with unforgettable moments, and I'm sure this last year won't disappoint. Thank you to everyone who has joined in this journey with me :)

The great part about my birthday is that YOU get the presents! Starting today through the end of January, everything in my Etsy shop is now 20% off with coupon code "HappyBirthday" at checkout.  Think of it as a spring cleaning of sorts - as I need to make room for all of the wonderful new spring line items that will be popping up in a few weeks. So, head on over and see what we have in store!

And now, the giveaway!
This weekend I'm going to be going to Northern Virginia to celebrate my birthday and my friend Alison's birthday at a happy hour with all of our friends. I'm going to make myself a clutch to match my new dress, so I thought it would be a great idea to give one away to one of you! That's right, one lucky person is going to win the clutch pictured below in my totally favorite color combination of the moment - grey and plum! Swoon!

Love Elaine Grey and Plum Clutch
