The Big Four-Oh Giveaway, Day 2: Chocolate Sundae Batiks Fat Quarter Bundle

This life is for loving, sharing, learning, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, dancing, wondering, healing, and even more loving. I choose to live life this way. –Steve Maraboli

Happy Thursday everyone! Yesterday was my three-year blog-a-versary, and to celebrate, I kicked off four days of giveaways, which will end on my birthday. My 40th birthday. Cue the ominous music :paranoid:? I don't think so. Age is just a number, and 40 is as good as any other.

I have something really fun for you today, sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop. I can't think of a better way to brighten up the short, cold winter days than with fabric. Unless you're in the southern hemisphere and the days aren't short and cold, in which case, you all need something to do on summer break. Right? It's the perfect prize for any time of the year.

Today's giveaway is a fat quarter bundle of Chocolate Sundae Batiks by Hoffman Fabrics. Aren't those colors amazing together?
