In case you didn’t notice on my last post, my 29th birthday is this upcoming Sunday, so in honor of the last few days of 28, I’m doing a giveaway! One of my favorite movies of all time is My Fair Lady. Gorgeous music, gorgeous scenery, gorgeous Audrey.

So I’m giving away a DVD of this fab classic!

What do you have to do to enter?

Just leave a comment on this post on your favorite movie. All I *must* have is your email address. I’m accepting entries until April 30th at midnight central time.

Winner will be chosen by!

Good luck, chickadees!

OKC Locals – Giveaway Alert

If you’re in Oklahoma City, hop over to I am a Greedy Girl and check out her giveaway for the OKCity Card from the Allied Arts.  I’ve never grabbed one of these, but it sounds like it has a ton of great discounts. Definitely something to check out, especially if you like to eat out or check out local attractions. Or even if you need new ideas on things to do in the area.

Side note: did you know that the OKC Museum of Art is opening a new exhibition on costume design in film? I CANNOT WAIT. I WILL CAMP OUT TO BE FIRST IN LINE. Ok, that’s an exaggeration, but I really am excited. Opens May 6-Aug. 15.

Back to the business at hand. Go sign up for the giveaway and check out Caroline’s blog while you’re at it. It’s one of my faves!

My Very First Giveaway!

Ok, in honor of my 28th birthday, I am having my very own first giveaway here at Pencil Shavings. After all, it’s better to give than receive, non?  

I ordered this gorgeous print of romantic Venice from Etsy seller Scarlet Beautiful (above) and I was pleasantly surprised when she sent not only the one print, but an additional one as well! What luck! Quelle chance!

So. Here’s what I’m going to do. Just leave a comment on this post, telling me your favorite birthday memory or favorite birthday present. I’ll close the comments on Wednesday at noon central time and then randomly draw a winner. And then I will ship the winner this gorgeous glossy photo of Venice. Please note, this is just for the photo – no frame is included. 

Good luck to all!  🙂
