Let me hear some noise! Blow the horns, shout out loud, let’s get ready to PAARRRTTTYYYY!

Could there be a more exciting week? I think not! On this date one year ago, Pretty Handy Girl was born. I wrote my first blog post and since then y’all have followed me through the beautiful and the ugly.

But, wait, there’s more! On Thursday, 40 years ago, I was born!

I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate my 40th birthday with you and you and you – all 3,350 of you (and counting!)

In honor of this memorable week, I will have a different giveaway for each day. In no particular order, here are some of the gifts I have for you (thanks to some wonderful companies who donated them.)

Janimie Necklace of Your Choice

Dremel Trio

A Selection of All Things Pretty Handy Girl (Sorry, I will not be included in the box.)

KILZ Primer

Gift Certificate to spend at Leen the Graphics Queen

A Selection of Irwin Tools


So, be sure to stop by EVERY day this week to see what you could win! Who’s with me now? Can I get a woot woot!

I leave you with a photo compilation of me over the past 40 years. Enjoy!

P.s. Get a load of my wings and my hot prom date! No funny comments, that was me and Pretty Handsome Guy in the 80’s. {Baahahaha. LOL}

    Happy birthday/blogiversary. You were/are a cutie, no matter the hairstyle! At least you had a style- me, not so much! 😉

    Happy birthday / blogiversary! You sure have accomplished a lot in just one year of blogging!

    Those prizes look like some great ones… although I must say that photo of the couple taking “you” out of the box is a wee bit creepy. 🙂

    Congrats again on the milestones!

    P.S. I think that photo of you and your hubby is so cute! Hey that was stylish back then! And the fact that you married your high school sweetheart.. so romantic! 🙂
