  1. Happy Birthday Mary!! Thanks for a chance to win.
    One of my favorite birthday memories is when I was a kid the whole family would go out to dinner at a local restaurant, since I shared a birthday with an uncle, we would have a huge party right in the restaurant. It was so much fun to be there with all the family enjoying each others company.

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!!!! December 3rd is also our anniversary. <3 Last year for my birthday my dear husband took me to the Tulip Festival. On the way home he stopped at a waterfall supply store and bought what we needed to create a pond and waterfall in our backyard. He made me feel so special and made 2 of my dreams come true. :)

  3. Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday Dear Mary! I hope that your birthday is filled with love and joy. My favorite birthday memory was when my twin brother and I had bunnies for a cake and his was blue and mine was pink. And all of our friends came over.

  4. Happy Birthday Mary!! What a great day for a birthday! One of my favourite memories is when my husband threw a surprise party for me and I truly had no idea. He went through a lot of work pulling that off! I am also hoping to create some new birthday memories this weekend too since you and I share the same birthday!

  5. Today is my birthday too! A very happy Birthday to you! I hope you have a wonderful day with your family. My favorite birthday memory was when my husband bought me a laptop. I always wanted one and when it was delivered, I was so surprised and thrilled. I was up all night setting it up and couldn't wait to play with it.

    Enjoy your day!

  6. Mary - this is definitely the week of birthdays!! My daughter turned 24 on Thursday (12/1), my best friend of over 23 years turned 50 today (12/2)! and now to hear it's YOUR birthday? Happy Happy Happy Birthday! I hope this year will be your best one yet. To answer your question, my favorite birthday memory was my 40th birthday when my husband planned a huge surprise party for me - and he did such a great job, I actually thought he forgot my birthday! All our friends, great food, lots of fun - it's a memory I always treasure. Enjoy your birthday weekend - you deserve it!

  8. Happy Birthday Mary! Sounds like you will be having a fabulous day!! What a great giveaway! I have eyeing this cartridge really bad!! My favorite birthday memory is for my 21st birthday, my husband(then my boyfriend), said he had a surprise for me and he wouldn't tell me what it was until we got to the movie theater. I had received flowers earlier that day from my best friend and I was guessing that the surprise might be him getting my best friend to come home and spend my birthday with me. We got to the theater and she was standing inside. He still can't believe I guessed the surprise! I had no clue...I just have some crazy intuition!! Plus I might just know my husband too well! :) Have a great day Mary!!

  9. That's easy. My mom gave me the choice of a Sweet 16 or a present. Of course being a teen I chose PARTY! My mom was a seamstress and she sewed 17 dresses, if you can believe it. The colors were pink the girls and burgundy for me. My partner was my brother. He wore his dress blues(marine). Everything turned out so beautiful and memorable. I will never forget! I love this cart. It is th perfect time for it. Thanks Mary and a big HAPPY B-day to you. Enjoy your fun packed weekend.

  11. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY! My BD is on the 11th. At least we share the month. My favorite memory is a surprise party when I turned 40. It truly was a fun surprise and many of my friends and family were there to share. My gifts were joke gifts and we all laughed so much. It's true what they say about laughter is the best medicine. Hope your day is special like you.
    Hugs, Debi

  12. Happy Birthday Mary!!! Hope you have had a great one. Love the prize you have for some lucky person. I think one of my favorite birthdays was a couple of years ago my dear Hubby took me to San Antonio on a one day scrapbooking shopping trip. We made sooo many stops and I think I bought something at each store. Love that!

  13. Happy Birthday Mary! We should be sending you a cartridge! My favorite birthday memory is my 50th when my 80 yr old father drove himself and his dog from No. MN to Oregon to surprise me. I drove home from work and he was sitting on my bench in the yard waiting for me. It meant the world to me as he rarely ever travels. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. HaPpY BirThDaY Mary!
    Wishinig you a great day and weekend full of excitments and surprises and lots of good time with your friends and family.As well, many creative years to come, I enjoy watching your videos. Thanks for that.
    My favorite birthday memory, is when I was toward the end of my first pregnancy and I was big, pink, and happy. My husband took me for a fun romantic day at the Japanies gardens followed by dinner in a great restuarant. We set outside enjoing the view of the whole valley where we live at. It was a day to treasure. 10 days after my daughter born, which was the best late birthday gift for life.

  15. Happy Birthday to you Mary!! My favorite birthday memory was spent in Hawaii when I had my 50th birthday. It is same day that Hawaii turned 50 as our 50th state. Have a wonderful birthday!!

  16. Happy Birthday Mary, isn't it a blessing to have such wonderful family to do such nice things for us. My favorite Birthday was July 4, 2010. After spending 7 months in the hospital with 2 months of it being in ICU, the Doctors told my husband and I that I would not see my next birthday and those words changed our lives forever. I was determined to prove them wrong and not only did I celebrate that year but I proved them wrong again this year. If it wasn't for the love of my family, my faith in God, and my crafts to keep my mind occupied this could be a very different story. I am so blessed!! May you have many, many more celebrations as I know I will!!!
    Happy birthday and Merry Christmas!

  17. Happy Birthday Mary! Hope you have a fabulous day with your family.
    My favorite birthday memory would have to be when I was 10 and my older sister(10 years older) came back home after being away for 2 years. We are very close and I missed her dearly. It was the most special birthday ever, just to have her there to celebrate it with me and the family.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. Happy Birthday, Mary! My favorite birthday memory was a huge party we had for my 30th birthday. We invited friends and family and our Toastmasters club, the priests from our church, and about half the congregation. We had so much food and so many people we had to rent the clubhouse at my apartment complex! We said no gifts because their company was the gift. Thanks for giving as you do! You are so generous with your talent and your time!

  20. Oh, Mary, Happy Birthday. I know you will enjoy your weekend with your family. There is nothing like it. It reminds me of a time when my family took me out to dinner for my birthday (which was a difficult "decade" to turn, lol) and they all surprised me with a homemade quilt of my life. It was incredibly momentous. Now that my dad is gone, it makes my quilt more precious as he did a lot of the work on it. (I'm the 7th of 9 kids; I'm the baby girl of the family.)

    God Bless, Mary!

  23. My favorite birthday memory was the year I went home for my 20th high school reunion. My husband was deployed but managed to not only send me a teddy bear holding 6 gold fabric roses but a dozen live red roses to my sister's house (where I was staying during my visit) all the way from Iraq. It just made my birthday that year.

  25. Hello Mary and Happy Birthday to our birthday gal.
    A memory that stands out for me was when I was turning 13 and My mom just wished me a sort of hurried Happy Birthday and gave me a hug and a kiss. That was it. I began to feel that this birthday was going to be a quiet one.
    I went to school and the day passed and I came home. Then something seemed sort of funny..As I went into the backyard of my home someone from school told me I had to wait. Then I saw into the garage and saw people and I got scared I thought Oh no it's a surprise party. I got so nervous and then I was told to come into the garage and they all yelled a Surprise and Happy Birthday.. I don't know if I was more scared or embarrased but I was shaking and it was a party my mom had planned with some of my school friends. My mom gave me a bicycle and it was beautiful. So many kids and presents and I was still in shock..It really was a surprise I've never forgotten..in spite of being scared out of my wits.
    I just didn't really know what to do but thank every one for coming.. I was in shock for most of the party. I never expected it at all.

  28. Happy, Happy Birthday sweet Mary!! You deserve your awesome celebration!! A favorite birthday memory was just last year my husband was taking me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant only to walk in their backroom to SURPRISE it was all our kids and grandkids oh boy I sure was surprised (my first surprise party) then we went back to our house and had birthday cake and the kids had all gone in together and gotten me an HP digital camera (which is the one I had wanted so much) as the camera I was using(SONY digital) was 10 years old but still agoin' and believe or not...my camera actually broke at the house just before we left for the restaurant as I was wanting to take pictures of my sweetie and me at the restaurant and I became a little upset and my sweetie told me don't fret you can go Monday and see if it can be fixed....(of course he knew I was getting a new camera in a couple of hrs ... how great was this.) See I'm a scrapper and over the years I've take thousands of pictures and to be without a camera would be heart breaking and oh boy I love my HP digital!!!

  29. Happy Birthday Mary!! You are such a present to all of us with the great video's and ideas!
    I think my favorite BD was 13 and I received a sewing machine!! My first foray into many years of crafting and creating. Thinking back to how its that gift opened up many years of creative pleasure. I'm still cutting up materials, although not just fabric anymore and putting it all back together into something different!

  31. Mary hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend. The best birthday I had was when I turned 50 my little sister took me to Las Vegas. Just the two of us for a long weekend. We don't often get time for just the two of us so it was so special to have her all to myself. We had so much fun no cares or worries for three days just a lot of laughing, fun and memories.

  35. Happy Happy Birthday Mary, have a wonderful day with your family.
    My most memorable birthday was the year I turned 26 and spent it on my honeymoon. My hubby had booked our wedding without my knowledge and the nearest date he could get to my birthday was 2 days before so we were married and then of course my birthday fell during our honeymoon. The hotel we were staying at treated us to so many treats as honeymooners but for my birthday they gave us a free 7 course meal with as many drinks as we liked and full entertainment is was just magical.
    Thank you for the chance to win and I am happy to pay shipping.

My husband took me out of town for the day and when we got home our kids had friends and family all at our place, we live next to a shopping center and they had everyone park there so I could be surprised when I walked in and boy was I!! One of the best parts was they had 3 cakes, each had 20 candles on them.

  42. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!!!!!!!

    My birthday is also in Dec. Dec 7th...My favorite birthday memory was when I was 16 and my mother gave me a box of chocolates. When I opened the box I noticed that one of the chocolates was missing so I just said thank you and closed the box up again. She was sort of puzzled by my reaction so she asked for the box back and showed me that the missing chocolate was suppose to have a little diamond ring in it's place but must have bounced out of it's spot when she was wrapping the gift.

    Have a GREAT day!

  57. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful birthday!
    My favorite birthday memory was after we had moved from California to Mississippi, when I was in 4th grade. In California, everyone played tetherball it was so fun, but when I moved to Mississippi no one even knew what it was. So for my birthday, my parents got me a tetherball and my dad put up the pole in the backyard, I taught all my friends how to play and we had hours and hours of fun playing tetherball while we lived there.

  63. Happy, Happy Birthday Mary!!! I would so love to have that cartridge. I have wanted it since seeing the Christmas tree you used off of that cart. Let me tell you about my favorite birthday memory. My parents had just divorced and I was an only child, and kind of lonely. For my 12th birthday, my mom gave me a little black poodle! Her name was Missy and she was the sunshine in my life!!! She took away my lonliness and made me a happy girl. I'll never forget her.

  64. Happy Birthday Mary! May you have a blessed "weekend extravaganza"!

    My favorite birthday was my 50th. My family contacted my boss and worked out getting tickets for the Boston Symphony's 100th birthday concert. Then my sisters took me on a surprise day of beauty followed by a shopping spree for the outfit to wear that night (I had no idea what the day or evening was about). Then the rest of the family gathered for dinner and to send us off in a limo. I didn't find out where we were going until we arrived at Symphony Hall. The love shown all day was really memorable!

  66. Happy Birthday Mary !! I hope your day and weekend are a special one. My favorite memory are several birthday's that I had when I was in grade school, and my parents would let me have a few friends spend the night for a slumber party and then in the morning we would go down to the beach (I live on the coast in San Diego, California, and this was back in the mid 1970's) my parents would take the Coleman camping stove and make pancakes, bacon, and eggs for us all for breakfast. It was so much fun. Brienngs back many good memories to me. Anyways, Mary you have a wonderful birthday weekend, and when it is all overwith, tell us about everything you got to do.

  68. HI Mary, I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed all of your videos you have sent to me. I am going to tell you about my 21st birthday. It may sound funny to you but I enjoyed it very much. It was with my husband and his sister. We went out one evening to go smelt fishing my husband enjoyed doing when we where younger. Him and my brother in-law would catch the fish in nets and my sister in-law and I would hold the light cause you could only catch them at night time. My sister in-law and I where having a few drinks of wine and got a little tippsy. We fell into the water and we just laught so hard you couldn't beleive. I think that was one of my favoret birthdays. I hope you had a lovely birthday and you have many more.

    Thank you

  69. Happy birthday!! My birthday was last weekend and it will be a good memory. We went to the Sugar Mill (Deleon Springs, FL) for breakfast/lunch. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time! My kids are about done with college so it may be one of the last of my birthdays we spend together. That makes it even more special.

  72. Happy Birthday Mary!!! I hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating with your family. Sounds like they have lots of fun things planned for you. My favorite birthday memory was when I was about 10 and got a bike that I had been wanting for a long time! My parents hid the bike on the back deck and when we were done with dinner and cake and I had opened all my gifts, my dad said to look out on the deck! I think my eyes were the size of saucers. My siblings still tease me about that! Enjoy your day!

  78. Hi Mary. I hope your birthday weekend is great. One of my favorite memories of my birthday goes back to when I was about 10. I have never been a cake lover and we had a local bakery that baked these really huge cinnamon rolls and doughnuts as well as making great sandwiches. One year for my birthday my mom went to this bakery and bought me a huge glazed donut (it was almost dinner plate size) and several smaller donuts that she cut in half and placed around the larger one to make a flower. Then she wrote happy birthday on the bigger one in gel icing and put candles on it. I loved it and it was so yummy.

  79. First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!!! Enjoy the day.
    For me - it would be a couple of years ago my Grandson's birthday party happen to be on my birthday. Did not think anything about it. His party had several family members at his house to celebrate. Once we did his birthday cake and sang happy birthday...a few minutes later...everyone started to sing happy birthday again and my daughter came out with a wonderful chocolate cake and 1 candle for me. I was totally surprised and loved that I could share my birthday with my grandson's.

  83. Happy Birthday Mary!
    My special birthday memory was I wanted a horse (kids drea big and I knew my dad could not afford a horse, but wanted one so bad)...since my birthday is on Dec 25, and it was on a Sunday that year, we celebrate christmas on the 24 and my birthday on the 25...
    So on the 24 we were opening presents after dinner and there was a knock at the door. My dad said who could be here at this time of the evening...I opened the door and there was a saddle. I was surprised, but asked who sent it and why, I didn't have a horse, and my dad said I don't know maybe it was santa.
    So I thought tomorrow I would get the horse...the next day came and no horse, and this was my birthday! No horse, no presents...nothing...this was the worse birthday ever....went to bed mad! Next morning woke up with a string on my bed...said follow this sting and your dream will come true...so I followed it and it came to a halter....and no horse! This was not fair...the phone rang and my dad said answer it...I was so mad, I didn't want to....but I did and the guy at the other end said I think your dog got out, can you come and he gave the address. I went outside and my dog was there...so ??? My dad said let's go see this dog....well it wasn't a dog...it was my horse....the best gift of my life!

  85. Happy Birthday, Mary from a fellow Sagittarian. My favorite birthday memory was when I turned 40. My mom had moved in with me a few months earlier and one sister was recovering from surgery at my house. I worked on my birthday, and called home at lunchtime. I heard a lot of music and such and even made the comment that I wanted to be at home partying with them. After work, one of my workmates had me take her to the autobody shop where her car was, so I offered to let her use my vehicle to get home. She only had to drop me off at my house which was close to work. When I walked in, all my workmates were there, the local neighbors and some close friends. Needless to say that I was surprised. All day long at work, no one gave a clue that I would be having a party that night. It really was a great 40th birthday surprise.

  86. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! My husband and I have raised 14 children (11 adopted after the death of our daughter). On my 50th birthday some of our children threw a suprise birthday party and ALL of the family came from around the country! Of course the other big suprise was that I had to put up 10 people for the night and the next few days. The other great birthday memory is that my Dad, who is not given to sentimentals, wrote,"people say that Fri the 13th is unlucky but for me it was the luckest days of my life!" I was born on Fri the 13th. That was the last and only time we will ever be all together. I hope you had a GREAT BIRTHDAY!

  87. Happy Birthday, Mary from a fellow Sagittarian. My favorite birthday memory was when I turned 40. My mom had moved in with me a few months earlier, and I had a sister recovering from surgery at my house. I worked that day, and called home during lunchtime. I heard a lot of music and even commented that I wanted to be where the party was. After work I took one of my workmates to an autobody shop where she had to leave her car. I offered my car for the night for her to get home, if she would drop me off at home first. When I walked into my house, I was surprised by all my workmates, neighbors and close friends. What a great surprise. None of my workmates had given any indication of what was happening that evening at any point during the day.

  93. Happy, Happy Birthday Mary,,,, I am so glad you asked that question,,,I turned 55 on 11-11-11
    and I had a wonderful weekend with all of my kids, grandchildren,siblings, parents and the nieces, nephews, and their children. It started out being our family Christmas party, but when they surprised me by singing Happy Birthday, it made me cry. We rented a party room at a hotel, watched the grand kids in the pool, stayed the night and had breakfast the next morning together, then more swimming for the kids. It went by all to fast, but it is one memory I will always remember.
    have a wonderful time with your family this weekend,

    How exciting to have a birthday weekend celebration planned for you by your family.
    My birthday memory was this past July.
    I am leader/president of an Herb Study Group that meets once a month. Well, this year the meeting was on my birthday. To celebrate I made our meeting into a birthday party for everyone no matter when their birthday was. I baked tons of cupcakes and had some decorations and small gag type rings for everyone + pin the tail on the donkey...
    It was a great evening that I will long remember sharing with friends.
    Thanks for making such great videos.
    Best wishes

  97. Mary - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! How thoughtful of you to give away a gift on your birthday. I have great birthday memories. I think though my favorite was as a kid getting to pick our favorite foods for dinner. I would always pick my Mom's fried chicken. She makes really good fried chicken. Yummy!

    Enjoy your weekend with your family

  98. I'll never forget my 70th BD. Our whole family went to our favorite Mexican restaurant. After a wonderful meal my daughter brought out the ugliest cake you've ever seen with 70 candles flaming. She yelled "is there a fireman in the house?". Then my grandson came out from behind a wall wearing a firemans hat a had a fire extinquisher in his hand. He sprayed the candles and the whole cake and icing went all over us. What a mess! Their joke backfired, literally! We couldn't stop laughing and so did other people in the restaurant. We cleaned up the mess and had dessert which was a beautiful cake my daughter had made to take the place of the hobbible one. How could we ever forget that BD? Happy birthday to you Mary.

  102. Happy Birthday Mary!!! Mine was in 1989 when my husband proposed to me on my birthday, it was a hot day in August he was very romantic he went to my parents to ask them first. Then planned a quiet time at the house bent down on one knee and I said yes. He planned a fun filled weekend of shopping a movie and great restaurants. Sad when he had to leave to go back to the military. We did get married in1992 and we were high school sweet hearts since 1985. Family is great and it sounds like you have a wonderful family enjoy your birthday...

  104. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! My happiest birthday so far has been this years, yes I had to wait 37years for it! My hubby took my family and I to Mexico City and on my birthday a mariachi of 8 surprised me and sang the maƱanitas and Happy Birthday to me at our table when we were having dinner. I felt very special and loved. I got emotional as I am now just going back to that day and having that awesome feeling in your tummy of butterflies.

  107. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!!! Sound like you have a jam packed day planned. Hope you enjoy family, friends, food and fun!!! I remember my 13th birthday. My birthday is in January and my mom would never let me have parties. She didn't want all the snow and wet being tracked into the house. So finally when I was 13 she let me have a sleep over with all my friends.... we had the best time.I loved it so much because it was the first party I was ever allowed to have. Since my birthday is just around the corner this would make a great birthday gift....ha, ha....

  118. My favorite birthday was this past Oct 15, my big 60th. It all started on the 14th with flowers sent to work from little sis and brother, then daughter and 6 year old grandson arrive at office with grandson giving Nannie a dozen pink roses(he was so proud and excited). Then get home to gifts from hubby and daughter and family. On the 15th the big 60th daughter and I travel 35 miles for a spa day. We had a great brunch at the spa, but older sis had sent money to buy my lunch, so off we go. We got our bill and it was $19.51, that was the year I was born, what a day. What a great day.

  121. My special birthday memory actually occurred every year when I was young. My mom always made all of my clothes and I rarely got a "bought" outfit, but every year my aunt would buy me a dress for my birthday (which is January 10th). So that dress was always very special to me ~ and I'd usually save it to wear for Easter. I always knew that she'd get me a dress, but I didn't mind knowing what my gift would be because it was so special to me!
    Hope you're having a wonderful birthday weekend filled with all of your favorite things, Mary!!

When I arrived home from work, my hubby took the whole family to a Japanese steakhouse, and we had loads of fun! Thank you so much for sharing your birthday with us!

  138. Happy Birthday Mary!!! When I was a young girl in the late 70's I was really into Star Wars. My Crafty Mom was into cake decorating and she made and decorated a "DARTH VADAR" cake w/ Black Frosting. I had a ton of both boy and girls friends over for a party and EVERYONE had BLACK lips and teeth! The next day at school we all still had the evidence of that black frosting!!! I still laugh and crack up every time I remember that party.

One of my favorite bday memories is a few years ago when my husband surprised me by giving me diamond stud earrings for my 40th and said I had to have something special to remember my 40th bday. I went and got my ears pierced for a second time so I could wear them everyday and still wear my dangle earrings.. I cherish them and every morning when I put them on they remind me how lucky I am to have such a thoughtful, loving hubby.

  146. My favorite Birthday memory was my 18th birthday. My Brother and I's birthday's are a week apart so we usually end up celebrating them together. But on my 18th birthday Mom and I celebrated my birthday alone. Her and Dad sent me roses to school and then she bought me a cake of my own and we had my favorite food and it was just about celebrating my birthday not both birthday's and that was really special for me.

Almost every Sunday was a birthday celebration for someone..It was a wonderful time in my life..

  155. Happy Birthday Mary! My favorite birthday memory was 2 years ago, my hubby took me to dinner and surprised me with my family waiting at the restaurant. My son's changed their plans at the last minute to spend my birthday with me. It was totally unexpected and appreciated. Thanks for the chance to win and keep your awesome videos coming.

  156. Happy birthday Mary!!!! On my 40th birthday, one of my sisters went all out decorating her apartment with the funniest and silly signs for a 40 year old. When I walked in with my girls and read all of it we just laughed so hard. It was lots of fun!

  160. Hi Mary and Happy Birthday! Hope you've had a great weekend! My favorite birthday memory was my husband taking me to Oklahoma City to see Keith Urban in concert and we stayed overnight in downtown Bricktown just across from where the concert was at. He also took me out to eat supper at Zio's Italian restauraunt. It was the BEST birthday present ever!!! Patti ptclark@valnet.net

  163. Happy Birthday, Mary! I've learned so much from your videos. One of my favorite birthday memories was when my husband and kids pretended like they'd forgotten it was my birthday, all the while planning to take me out for dinner and have a cake afterwards...only my kids were little and couldn't keep the secret very well. What fun! :)

  165. Mary Happy Birthday! I would say that my best one I can remember as a child was when my Mom made me a barbie cake. My Mom had 6 kids so we didn't get fancy cakes like the kids get today. I saw this barbie cake in the magazine and told her how I would love it for my birthday. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got home from school that day and there was my barbie cake....better than any you could buy as it was made with love. I felt so special that day and that is saying alot when you have 5 other sisters.

  167. Happy, happy birthday Miss Mary. Have a wonderful celebration with your family. My favorite memory is the time our kids threw a surprise 40th birthday party for my husband and I. I had no clue, it was a total surprise to both of us.

  168. Happy Birthday Mary! Hope you had an awesome day, or should I say weekend! My favorite birthday memory was from about 5 years ago. My hubby, son and I went to Nashville TN to visit hubbys aunt. On my birthday we went to a dinner theater, which was a first for the three of us, and it was fabulous! The food and the play (Boing, Boing) were both awesome, and the waiter was terrific! I felt very spoiled that night, which doesn't happen often! lol

  170. A very happy birthday, Mary! One of the happiest birthdays I have had was when I was turning 10 and my parents surprised me with a Dachshund puppy. I had long been wanting a dog so badly and when I actually got one, I was so shocked, I was at a loss for words.

  171. Happy Birthday, Mary! I hope you enjoy every minute of your celebrations. I think my favorite birthday memory was when I turned 50 and my daughter decorated our dining room table with 50ish stuff and had saved her money and had 50 one dollar bills crumpled up around on the table AND gave me earrings & matching pendant with diamond chips! Then 2 of my friends came over and we all went to a Gem Show, out to lunch and had a great day! Thanks for the chance to win this neat cartridge!!
