Birthday Contest!

Okay, folks. I’m way passed the point where age is an embarrassment, and am willing to confess. My birthday is in September. I think I should celebrate “en grande” this year. And since I firmly believe every person should get to choose how to spend his or her birthday, I (once again) am going to do it my way. This year I choose to celebrate and share with you. Let’s have a contest!

I will be giving a birthday present to one lucky winner who can guess what date (day) my birthday is/was. And how old I am. (C’mon… you didn’t think it was that easy, did you? And I’m not asking you to guess the hour of my birth!)

These are the rules:

1. Leave a comment on this post with your guess. Remember: you have to guess the actual day of my birthday and my age on that date.

2. For a second chance to win, you can choose to follow me (click the “Join this Site” button on the right sidebar). Leave a second comment here, indicating you are following me. If you wish, you can choose a second date/age here, or go with the first.

3. Needless to say, close friends and family are not qualified to participate. Nor allowed to give any hints.

4. You have until Friday, September 17 at 20:59 EST (UTC – 5) to leave your comment(s). The winner will be announced the following day.

5. If more than one person guesses correctly, we will then throw their numbers in a hat and choose one lucky winner.

6. Oh, my, yes… I almost forgot! The prize? A one-year full membership to Angie’s Bits ‘n Pieces!*

Now let the fun begin!

*Membership will run for one year, from the date on which we sign you up until a full 365 days later. Membership allows you access to ALL projects, patterns, and tutorials on our website. Yay! If you are a member already, you will be reimbursed your renewal comes up, allowing you to enjoy your membership for another year at no cost.

    I’m going to guess your birthday is on the 24th (my youngest sons birthday as well). I believe you will be 58 years young.

    Love your site, especially the EPP’s.

    Oh Angie, this is such fun: I am going to say: Happpppppy Birthday! May the best still be to come!
    I have really enjoyed reading all the guesses:and here’s mine:
    I have to conclude that you are so comfortable with yourself and your age that you have come to understand that age is a state of mind not a number… Wise woman. You are so accomplished and are unapologetic about your talent. Confident woman. You want to share of yourself and your talent with us. Generous woman. You let us make fun with you and include us in your special celebration. Fun Chica!
    So since the Birthday girl wants numbers: I will say 25 of September: my favourite day in Sept as my baby boy will be 4. 🙂 And I will say that you are turning 60.
    In any case, Feliz Cumple, Angie!

    That’s the age I always liked (not too young and not to old). I am 61 en feel
    like I am 40. Thank you for all your lovely projects. I want to make them all

    I know what you mean about not counting anymore. It really doesn’t matter what the years add up to, Angie, just as long as you are enjoying life and having lots of fun. My guess would be September 24 and on that day you will be 66 years young! Happy Birthday and lots for such a wonderful website to enjoy!

    Angie I’m guessing September 12th which is my sister’s birthday and I’m thinking you look much younger than your age. Since you have grown children I’m thinking this a special birthday and maybe you turned 60.

    Hola Angie! Te felicito por este nuevo giro que has dado de conectarte con nosotras, alguna vez te escribí pero nunca recibí respuesta, así que me siento con la teacher accesible. Gracias de verdad. Mira, la edad es lo de menos, lo importante es el espíritu y cómo tu te sientas.
    pero como es un guess para ese premiazo, voy a decir que cumples 55 y que la fecha es el 14 de setiembre.

  32. Kim Fowler

    I believe your special day is on Friday the 17th and you will be 50 but then who is counting then. Hopefully we have helped make your day a little more special.

    I think you just turned 60 on the 1st of Sept. That is my mom’s birthday and nobody has guessed that day. Hope you had or have a great birthday which ever day it is on.

  41. Lline Woodall
    Posted September 16, 2010 at 11:23 pm | Permalink

    I’m going to guess the 8th. My brother has the only Sept. birthday in our family. And as you have older grandkids how about 65. Have a great birthday no matter when or how young you are this year.

  42. Vivian Oaks
    Posted September 17, 2010 at 10:17 am | Permalink

    Purely a guess – you obviously are very young-looking for your age, because you don’t look over 35 to me, but since you mentioned having 3 grown children already, I’m going to guess that you’re 47 (you must have had your babies at a VERY young age!:-) ) My guess for the date is September 14th!
    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win! ( I, personally, would LOVE to win a year’s worth of your Bits ‘n Pieces!!

    Happy Birthday! I have no idea, but you have really lovely picture for whatever age. I am going to be like several others and guess close to my own age just changing the month from May to September–Sept., 28, 1947.

    I think that your birthay is on Sept. 24 and that you will be 50! I hope that I didn’t overshoot! You are a person who will remain young forever because of your love of beauty and creativity. I love your site. I hope your day is glorious!

    Happy Birthday,
