A Game for my birthday..and a prize...



My Birthday this year falls on Sunday...the weather is calling for rain and highs near 80 degrees... I guess it's better than 90's and muggy...
I decided I wanted to play a little game with you all...there are so many weird, funny, and cool interesting facts about my life, from birth till now....
If anyone can guess a little known fact about me, something I've done in the past or something interesting about when i was born, things I accomplished, some not so fun but nevertheless, unbeknownst to most people, you will get your name put in the drawing to win... I will be showing the prizes...yes folks, plural, that will be available to a few winners ..... all you will need to do is write your guesses here , make a comment on this post, if you think you know something, write it down...I will make a list of all the right guesses, but only so many names will be drawn..
As you can see, one of the prizes will be a libert doll I made a few years ago,  Using an awesome pattern from 'SWEET PEA PRIMITIVES" I only purchased a few other designers patterns as I don't read instructions well.....lol...well, this dolly was a n extra, I never sold her...It's been tucked away, and now she is ready to go home with someone....I have the other one I made hanging in my bedroom.
Good Luck and have fun everyone !!!!
I will draw the winner on Monday morning sometime !!!!
Hugs...
Robin

Happy, happy birthday to you!
My guess would be that you've never flown in an airplane.

Happy Birthday to you!!!! I agree warm and rainy is better than a hot muggy day, I love summer, I love heat but I hate muggy :), let's see things you've accomplished just recently, learned how to hook rug on your own, you started making patterns for fabric, something you've never done or just learn to do, maybe swim or ride a bike :).
Hope you have a wonderful birthday.
Eat lots of cake!!!!
Hugs

Good morning Robin - Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day on Sunday.
Mmm...it is hard to make a guess, but I will take a stab and say that the unusual thing about your birth is that you were born before your Mom got to the hospital.
Hopin' for a chance to win!

The Zip code was first introduced on July 1'st in 1963.You share a birthday with Princess Diana.

I know you homeschool your children, so along with your crafting business you are one busy lady. I hope you have some fun plans for your birthday.

Happy Birthday Robin! I'm gonna guess that you were doodling long before you could walk!! Your mom probably had a scrapbook of all your great doodles!

Happy Birthday Robin,
Have a wonderful day full of great memory making. I know you are a talented lady but I bet you've never climbed up a volcano! (I have - several in fact!)

Happy Birthday Robin!

I know you went to nursing school & did very well... but I'm going to take a wild guess! You have taken a ride in a hot air balloon (? maybe ?). Well, if you think that is a wild thought... I was going to say you have gone ski diving! lol Have you?

Pendleton Primitives said...

Happy Birthday to you! Well, I don't know any facts but you seem to be universally talented in your crafting abilities. You make a vast array of items and I am guessing you are mostly self taught? Anyhow, enjoy your Birthday and your cake too!

Happy, Happy Birthday Robin!
I'm not suggesting you are this old...but you were born on the day that the Declaration of Independence was first voted on in 1776!
...and I'm guessing you may have gotten in trouble with one of your grade school teachers for doodling on your homework!

Linda said...

Hi Robin,
I know you have your LPN license but I don't know how long since you worked as a nurse.

Happy Birthday (sunday) Robin. Hope its a fun one.
I'm guessing you were a group leader at one time, either in scouts, PTA or something or other.......

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

Happy birthday Robin,,,weren't you and Robby Reagan coharts together at one time doing crafts together..and she flew to see you on one of her trips to the states...;)have a wonderful week and I would love to win one of your wonderful creations.;)

BumbleBeeLane said...

I've never been a good guesser..smile..I know that you recently started up the wonderful primitive website, that against all the negativity from extended family became a LPN.I know that you are sensitive but strong and the more people tell you you can't you push to prove you can like with your recent rug hooking adventure (which by the way is just lovely) Hope you have a wonderful Birthday filled with joy and blessings!~Amy

I'm guessing you hate having your teeth cleaned, and practice doodles in your head while they do it!

Boggy Creek Primitives said...

I don't even know you Robin but I KNOW I love your designs. Just purchased one recently to do as an NP. But I'm guessing you were once in a rock band? LOL, I know, that's really off the wall!!!?? Happy Birthday to you when it comes. I just had one, whooo hoooo! Double nickles...

Heart In Hand Primitives said...

Just wanted to say an early Happy Birthday. I don't know you but I do know that I love your designs and have purchased several to use for stitchery and punch needle. You have a God given talent and use it so well. May God bless you to have a wonderful birthday tomorrow and may you have many more!

susiedele said...

My guess...You fell out of a tree house when you were a kid. teehee!

janet said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY..
My guess is that you were born outside of the United States..I was and maybe you were too..
Have the best day and may you get everything you wish for..

Cottonwood Lane Primitives said...

May I be the first to wish you a Happy Birthday today! I stink at guessing, but I think you mentioned before that you not only went to nursing school but finished first in your class, partly to prove your MIL wrong :-). ~Roberta

Simply Primitive said...

Happy Birthday Robin! Love your designs! I'm guessing when you were young, you were very shy and loved to draw at a very early age.
