The Best Birthday Gift Ever and an Awesome Giveaway!

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends!! Who’s up for a fantastic GIVEAWAY?? This giveaway is open to my friends in the US and CANADA!!

But first, I want to share what made my birthday weekend one of the best ones ever!!

If you’ve followed me for a while, you may remember our beloved kitty, Holly:

She was my baby…total lapcat. She was the sweetest ever and lived to be 20 years old! Sadly, we had to say good-bye to her in March of 2017 and it broke my heart. I knew we would eventually have a kitty again, but I needed some time.

Well, that time has come!!

Meet my birthday babies:

Lyla and Lucy

Ya’ll, I am in LOVE! I never imagined I’d get two!

These sweet girls are Lucy and Lyla!

Lyla and Lucy

We found them at Hope for Life Rescue here in Virginia Beach. They are a free-roam, no-kill animal rescue shelter for cats and dogs that are funded only through donations. If you are local, please consider them for your next fur baby!

Lyla and Lucy

They are sisters and they are 8 weeks old. I just had to take them both!


My heart is so full and I swear, I may never get another thing done ever! All I want to do is love on them! I promise not to become the crazy cat lady that shares endless photos of her cats. (Maybe.)

Okay, now who’s ready for that fantastic GIVEAWAY??

For my birthday, I am giving YOU a chance to win an awesome Dixie Belle prize pack!

All my favorite Dixie Belle essentials are included in this giveaway:

  1. Thanks for the chance to win Dixie Belle stuff! Love your kitties! They’re so beautiful!

  2. Beautiful kitties! Just like a pretty distressed finish!

  3. Happy belated birthday! I love your blog and seeing all of your projects. It is incredibly kind of you to do a give away that gives one of your lucky readers a gift in honor of your birthday. I have only used milk paint on my furniture makeovers so far, and while I love it, I have to admit that I have been tempted to try the Dixie Belle line of chalk paints, but haven’t yet taken the plunge. If I were lucky enough to be your winner it would give the perfect excuse to try the product line and add a new set of pretty and useful supplies to my craft arsenal. Thanks for providing such great inspiration in each of your posts!

  4. Marie Pearson says

    Happy Birthday!!! I LOVE your blog – so endearing, full of fantastic instruction. and creativity. Your two birthday buddies are adorable; I’ve forgotten how precious kittens are since our tabby, Honeybell, is now 11 years old. Just a quick muse about her name. My daughter was VERY into Lord of the Rings at the time of her arrival, and to prevent one of the uniquely named characters from becoming a permanent member of our family in the form of our kitty, I handed my daughter a paint deck and suggested she peruse the buttery yellows, and thus, Honeybell received her name.

  5. Lucy and Lyla are truly gorgeous. I have 2 rescue dogs, been with me almost 14 years and almost 13 years now.
    May your kitties have long and healthy lives with you.

  6. Oh and Happy Birthday !!!!

  7. Connie Hoffman says

    Would love to win the raffle! Thanks for the opportunity! I always look forward to seeing your beautiful work. You are so talented!

  35. Patricia Wilson says

    I love everything that you do and your style “speaks” to me. I wish that I didn’t live in an apartment that I can’t do this type of thing anymore. I did recently make a lamp out of a wine bottle using crackle paint and painting a bunch of grapes on it. Came out good. I love your birthday present. I always rescue and my most recent is Rascal George, a tiger cat. I love him dearly.

  36. Those kittens are adorable!, I wish you many Happy Birthdays with them. We have birthdays in common. Mine is on Friday. Great people are born in September! What a birthday gift this give away would be! Thank you for the opportunity. Happy Birthday!🎈

  37. Happy Birthday, Christy and thanks for the giveaway. Sweet kitty babies.

  44. Hi Christy,
    You’re my ‘one and only’ blogger that I follow. You are real, super-helpful, and an amazing diyer. The first time I came across your site, I was so impressed by your skills and your down to earth personality. I had a very important question I needed an answer to about my own diy project. You answered with a perfect suggestion AND within 1 day, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

  45. Susie Wilcox says

The kitty we have now was going to be taken to a shelter (long story), but we said oh no, she is ours. We just adore that little girl. Enjoy your two beautiful girls. I know exactly what you mean by just wanted to hold them and play with them all day. Unfortunately, we have to work. However, at least they have each other. Again, happy belated birthday.

  71. Love your new additions to your family! Very cute Fur Babies!

  75. freidia Martindale says

    Good Morning Christy,
    Love your beautiful new babies!
    Question for you… Can I use the clear top coat from Dixie on your chalk paint recipe?
    Thank you!

  76. Awww Christy they are sweet !! I love that you got sisters. We have a pair of sisters and they get along so well. We also have a 4-some who’s mama was killed when they were wee lil kitties. We took them to the vet, brought them inside, bottle fed them and love them to bits. We still call them kittens although at one year they are bigger than the original sisters. If you use a beauty blender put it someplace safe, one of the “kittens” (a male) loves to carry it around….”this is why we can’t have nice things” is my mantra these days. Lol. Blessings w your birthday babies ! 😻

  77. BOBBI G MABB says

  124. Happy Birthday! What beautiful whiskered angels. I too rescued my family additions (canine) and love them to death! I found an app that (supposedly) donates to a shelter of your choice when you login and walk your dog. Walk for a Dog, tracks the distance you walk, records your avg MPH, time walking and shows a map of your walk and it’s free.
    Enjoy those two cherubs!

  125. Rebecca - Knoxville, TN says

  139. Patty Soriano says

    I’m so glad you got two babies! Our newest, Oliver, is 18 weeks and is such a handful! The older cats want nothing to do with him. With good reason, he attacks them every chance he gets! But when he’s calm, he’s wonderful. Hadn’t planned to get another at this time, but he was thrown into our yard, no doubt by a nasty night time visitor. His lovely olive eyes were how he received his name. Would love to win! Thank you for the opportunity!

  140. Oh my goodness, they are adorable! I’d say that’s a wonderful Birthday gift! I Love their color, it almost looked like they are a silverish color in the picture. Have fun with these two sweethearts. And Happy Birthday!!

  201. Stacye Hixson says

    The kitties are adorable. I have 4 doors and they are all rescues. I don’t believe in buying from a breeder when there are so many fur babies in shelters that need love. Looking forward to seeing your next project. You’re so ingenious.

  202. Love all your work! I get so many ideas!

  203. Happy Birthday birthday girl! I hope you had an amazing day and your kittens are sooooo adorable. I wouldn’t be able to tear myself away to get any work done either. XO

  208. Debbie in TX says

    Awww! Your new babies are the cutest around!! I LOVE cats and become attached to them very quickly, and I know you must be having a blast with them. A shoestring and an empty cardboard box will keep them very occupied!

  226. Lyn Edington says

    Your babies are precious. Good for you! We lost our cat a couple of weeks ago to cancer. She showed up at our house and adopted us 20 years ago. I’ve always been a dog person but I really miss her. We will adopt again when it is time. I don’t mind if you post baby pictures. Happy Birthday!

  227. Thanks for the opportunity to win some paint products. It’s wonderful to follow your thrifty transformations. Xo, K

    Oh be still my heart! I love your two new kitties and thank you so so much for supporting a no kill shelter, you are a hero!
    Your give away is very cool also, I’ve always thought I should try one of those little brushes and the gator hide! Thanks

  230. Happy Birthday! Your kitties are so cute!

  231. Mary Loveland says

    Me again! I went over to Instagram and was reminded of a ton of your projects…you haven’t done a tote/tool box in forever!!! Would like to see you also do another bird feeder thing that looks like an old mailbox!!! Keep up the good work!

  232. Jana Bendawald says

    Happy birthday! I’m a Virgo girl too! I had a great day but not as good as you with 2 new fur babies! Adorable!

  233. Happy (belated) Birthday! Your kitty-cats are adorable. It kills me that I am, alas, allergic to cats! I tried some Dixie Belle from an antique mall dealer which is two minutes from my front door last week, and it goes on like buttah. I would love the opportunity to try more, so I hope I win this giveaway. I also got one of the sponges, and you are right – it is the easiest way to apply a sealer.

    • Thanks, Ellen! I’m so glad you got a chance to try Dixie Belle… It is awesome. And yes, the sponge is definitely the way to go! XOXO

  234. Those kitties are adorable!! Thank you for rescuing … I’m a momma to a rescued 4 yr. old pittie mix! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  235. Amy Giannini says

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the drawer front! I love seeing your upcycles!

  236. I love sing all the wonderful upcycles you do!

  237. Marty Kohlbaker says

    I love that you make your projects look easy to do, even to a beginner like me. Keep up the good work!

  238. I would love to see more photos of your cats. The same happened to me – our cat, Pumpkin, lived to be 20 years old. Sadly, she passed. Then approximately 2 years later we adopted Bessie and Clara, two sisters. Love them to pieces. Love your blog. You are such an inspiration to me. I wish I could find great pieces like you do. Slim pickings where I live. Thank you.

  239. Kathy Nordmann says

    Love all your wonderful posts! I’ve gotten so many great ideas from you!

  240. Kathy Schmitz says

    Happy Birthday… Lucy and Lyla are adorable!
    I’m already a subscriber, and always enjoy your posts. I clicked on the link to sign up for your drawing, got to the first page of the company, but the link on that page doesn’t take me anywhere. Dead air. I’ve tried it three times with the same result. In case it’s important, I’m using the Firefox browser.

  241. Happy birthday! And the 2 cities are the best! Tia

  242. Love following your blog, very inspiring.

  243. Desiree M Clark says

    Just love your blog!

  244. Sue H Mellette says

    Your kittens are adorable! My daughter had her kitty for 20 years and she, too, was from a rescue center in Columbia, SC. We, too, had to put Bitsi down two years ago. It was a hard thing for my daughter to do, but my daughter isn’t ready yet for another one!! Love your baskets and EVERYTHING you create. I bought some DB paint from your Etsy store recently, and it should be delivered soon! So excited. Thanks for sharing your gifts and your fur babies!

  245. Yes, I would LOVE to try these paints! Pick me, oh Royal Rafflecopter… pick me!

  246. Karen from Como says

    This was my birthday weekend, too! Monday was my actual birthday. For special fun this weekend, I went to Goodwill, bought some sweaters and made sweater pumpkins from your post last week! Itook artistic license with the stems but love the way they turned out. Thanks for the post!

  247. Stephanie Carrico says

    Happy belated Birthday! What beautiful cats. Love their names.

  248. Belated birthday wishes! And how did you know I needed some paint for a small beside table redo? LOL!!

  249. Happy Belated Birthday! The two little treasures will surely give you lots of love for many years to come.

  250. Who could resist those two adorable kittens! They look so soft and beautiful. 🙂

  251. Your new babies are beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Birthday!

    Christy, I can’t think of a better giveaway than Dixie Belle Paint! Thank you!

  257. Hilary Milner says

    I look forward to each post and admire your vision as you jazz up all these projects. I’m always impressed with the “after” pix. Keep up the good work.
    I know you will enjoy those sister kittens. We have two fosters (that will remain with me, I know!) Also we recently adopted two feral sisters who live in our oversized garage and mechanical room for rodent control. So far three down, haha.
    Happy Birthday to you and have a great week.

  258. Happy Birthday!

  259. What an awesome birthday present! Those two kitties are precious! Thanks for having another giveaway!

  260. Susan Dudley says

    Christy, I love your blog. I’ve tried to comment before but I’m not sure it went through. I’m a little with deficient in the the computer department at times. Anyway, I’m not a blog but I happened upon yours over a year ago and have been following faithfully. I have completed 4 silver tray makeovers that turned out not so bad. I’ve also done 3 flatware boxes. I enjoy your tutorials and appreciate how thorough they are. Thank you for all of your creations and please keep them coming.

    • Hi Susan! Your comment came through perfectly! Thank you for following along with me. I love that you have been inspired to create as well! XOXO

  261. Can’t wait to win!!!

  262. Adorable!!

    Happy Birthday!!!!

  263. Gayla Bailey says

  264. Hi Christy, I enjoy your blog projects and would love to try the Dixie Belle products. Thanks for the contest prizes!

  265. Diane Walters says

    How absolutely adorable are they!!

  266. Hi Christy!
    Happy belated birthday! I too had a birthday this past weekend (the 15th). It was a fun day but not a two-kitten fun day!
    I was looking for ideas for bowl fillers last week when I came upon your pumpkin sweater post. They are almost as adorable as Lucy and Lyla and I can’t wait to make them!
    Have a great week!

  267. Happy Happy Birthday,what a fantastic birthday gift & love the names.They look so sweet & hope you have many many years to cuddle them.🐱🐱

  268. Michelle McDonald says

    Christy, I absolutely LOVE your work, projects and format. You make everything look sooo easy! Thank you for blogging weekly. I’m consumed by diy motivation and your site is clean and inviting. I have been a crafty, make it myself person my whole life and now want to give new life to my storage unit, garage and guest room full of older furniture and goodies. I love your ‘HAULS’ and am going to ‘borrow’ the idea for myself to finish an item or two a week! I have been making my own chalk paint but would love to try the Dixie Belle brand at some time. And what a selection of color!
    Happy Birthday! Your new friend, Michelle

  269. Congratulations on your new little babies! May they grow up healthy and strong.
    And may they be extremely well behaved 🙂

  270. I love your Kittens. I too have a new kitten. Her name is Luna. I so wish she had a playmate. My husband found her in a box at his work. We had to bottle feed her for several weeks.

    I love all your projects and they inspire me to try new things.

  271. Lisa Torchia says

    There is no excitement like that of welcoming two kittens to your home. They are the cutest and the grey fits right in with your color palate. I am excited about the giveaway and would love to try the Dixie Belle products for my projects. I love painting furniture and am anxious to try other brands of paint. Lisa

  272. Christy, I’m so happy you had a wonderful birthday!! I remember when you lost Holly and I wept with you – I know what that heartbreak feels like. It does take some time to heal. Your new babies are beautiful – they will be greatly loved and are blessed to have you as their new “mama”!! 🙂 I would love to win the Dixie Belle prize package – but if I don’t I’ll just place an order. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  273. I have been following you for a while now and started following you on instagram sometime this year I believe. I never comment but I know that I should because I always enjoy everything you do and get great ideas from you. I also have a birthday this month. As a matter of fact, it is tomorrow! Hope you have a great week!

  274. Your new fur babies are so adorable!!

  275. Kelly Kayfes says

    I love your new fur babies. Since they are sisters does that make them twins?

  276. Adorable kittens. Happy Birthday and Congratulations on the new babies.

  277. Jane Clelland says

    I hope I win!!!

  278. Happy happy birthday!!!! Awww, kittens are so stinkin’ cute. I hope you have many happy birthdays together with them!

    I love your two new babies! I just recently adopted an young adult cat from a local cat rescue (Oakbrooke) and then bought a Ragdoll from a breeder. I am also having lots of fur baby fun. Also I am a recent widow and have never lived alone so the house was just too quiet. I would love to win your paints! Thanks for the opportunity, Doris

  288. KitsyKeelSmith says

    I would so love to win this gift. Your blog gives me so many ideas and it would be fun to try these products.

  289. Happy Birthday! We gave sister cats also. They are so much fun. Willa and Bella are two now and they are typical terrible two’s! They are also gray tabbies. I look forward to more pictures of them!

  290. Those kitties are SO cute! Congrats.
    Love you DIY too.

  291. N. MacGregor says

    As the saying goes, 2 cats are double the fun and double the trouble. Your birthday kittens are very cute and no doubt they will be very spoilt in no time.

  292. Sorry for the loss of your beautiful kitty. 🐾 Good luck with your new fur babies! 😻😻

  293. Lorey Johnson says

    I just love this idea! I have some sweaters in a bag going to Good Will. I don’t think a couple will make it 😉

  294. An inspiration, as always! (We had, a long time ago, brother and sister tabbys named Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory, which we loved, too! Enjoy!)

  295. You are by far my favorite blogger. Your makeovers are inspirational and your instructions are spot on. Always look forward to your posts!

  296. Christy I just love all the projects that you do you inspire me to do things that I probably would not have done. Loved the sweater pumpkins! I’ve never used the Dixie Belle brand but will have to now. The fur babies are adorable! My sweet girl Bella was 18 yrs old when she got her wings. Thanks for the contest.

  297. The kitties are adorable. We have 5 rescued cats currently ourselves. Happy Birthday!

  298. Kira M Sayler says

    As always I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything on your blog!! Thank you!

Thanks for the chance to win some special paint. I’ve been wanting to try some different paints than I’ve been using and sometimes it’s just hard to spend that money and buy something new to you. Love your blog!!

  322. Happy Birthday Christy! Thanks for the opportunity!

  323. M. Constance Colvin says

    Oh Christy! Your darling kitties! Yes yes yes! We have four dogs and they are all rescues…..two of them are sisters. When we met them about 10 years ago now, we didn’t have the heart to separate them! And our two cats are brothers…….one all black and one all white. They were the last two in the litter at the shelter and we would have felt too sad to leave one of them behind. It would have been too sad for THEM! Truly they are all angels…….my biggest question for the creator one day will be: WHY are we allowed to love our four-leggers so much and yet their lives are so short??????

  324. Jeannie Scott says

    Thanks for the grrrrrreat giveaway!!! I really want and need to win this prize!! I have been following you for many years and always enjoy your posts!! I have just begun using Dixie Belle paint and their products!! I love all I have tried but would like to try more. I am now a widow now since last year in October. I have been trying trying to keep my head above water since then!! Very difficult to live without my hubby of 54 years and make it on my own. My paint therapy is keeping me sane and busy!! Thanks again for this giveaway!!!

    • I will be crossing my fingers for you, Jeannie! I’m sorry to hear of your husband’s passing. It sounds like you have found a passion to keep your life full. XOXO

  325. Michelle McDonald says

    I’m on a sweater(pumpkin) hunt! The pumpkins are adorable!

  327. Have cut sleeves off of my old sweaters and hoping to finish my baby pumpkins this weekend!! Thanks for the tutorial. Seeing as I’m in Florida and it’s still a little too hot for my painting projects but hoping when it cools off a bit that I’ll be using these new supplies I’m hoping to win!!! Thanks for your inspiring blog!! You’re definitely one of my favorites!!

  328. I absolutely love all of your DIY’s. You are very creative and talented.

  329. Christy, I am wishing you many blessings and peace during this birthday celebration time. I know a piece of your heart is broken by the passing of such a sweet fluff ball. You gave her a wonderful,loving journey during her short life.

  343. Happy belated birthday! We used to have a kitty. She was a short haired tortoise-shell named Zoe. I nicknamed her “Proto-Zoe” because she was certainly a one-of-a-kind cat! She went to heaven around Thanksgiving many years ago. I haven’t given in to any urges but just holding precious, little kittens makes it tempting.

    Your contest was over before it came thru my emails.

    • Hey Koleta! Looking at your account in MailChimp, it looks like you received the giveaway post on the 17th, but opened it on the 18th. However, you never clicked through to my site. I do see that you clicked on the news about my kitty, so perhaps that may have been a distraction? In any case, I’m so sorry you missed the giveaway, but I will be having another before the holidays! XO

  379. Can’t wait to try out all of the Dixie Bell products! Your stuff always looks do great! Thank you for sharing your skills and recommendations.

  380. Love all your posts. Happy belated Birthday. Kitties are adorable.
    How can I purchase your paint.
    Thank you, Pat F.
