What a blast to meet all of you - and I NOW don't feel like a total geek. You all are just as crazy and weird as me based on what you are carrying around in your purses. I feel right at home with you guys! Ok, most of you. A kidney stone? underwear? a hammer? There are a few of you - I'm just sayin, you might want to clean out your bags a bit more frequently.
Wonderful Mr. Random Number Generator came up with #288. Ms. "M" - on December 2nd at 10:43am - an email has been sent to you requesting your mailing address. You my dear, are the lucky winner.
But wait...we're on a roll here.
Remember I shared that this weekend was C.R.A.Z.Y because my friend Suann and I were doing the marathon of craft shows for the holidays? We are totally pooped. And...we are celebrating that our busy season is done with more fun things just for you.
FIRST - Suann, from Bows and Blossoms is introducing a new line of the most adorable bucket hats that are fleece lined. Perfect to wear on a cold day AND stylish to the hilt! Love them! Suann has agreed to give this one away to all of you just for being, well, YOU! It's made out of sweet little brown cordoroy with pink dots and this wonderful pink blossom adorns it. Here's what you have to do to win this cute little thing.
Visit Suann at Bows and Blossoms. Come back here and leave us a comment and tell us your favorite item you found over there and why you like it. Suann would love to know what you think about her products as she works on trying her hand at some new things - like these hats. (and for serious - you will not find this kind of quality at this price anywhere - and she's offering FREE SHIPPING right now if you happen to find some other goodies you can't live without!)
We will leave the Bows and Blossoms giveaway open until Sunday, December 13th at 8pm EST and then use the random number generator to pick a winner for this adorable hat.
SECOND - to also celebrate the end of year and all our crazy crafting we've done this year - I'm having a sale over on my etsy site. Keep checking because I will be adding more and more and more stuff at great sale prices - perfect for Christmas giving. Or just for yourself because gosh darn it - you deserve it, don't ya?!
I'll be posting my schedule for my sewing classes for January and February here soon.
And my husband, the gardener, has requested that for two whole weeks, I schedule nothing. No deadlines, no projects, no orders - no nothing. He said he wants me to actually relax for two whole weeks. I'm not sure how I'll do it. I'll probably sneak downstairs during babys naptime and while he's at work and start plotting my next projects...I find it almost impossible to do "nothing" for more than a few days. But, I'll try :>)
I wanted to again, tell you how blessed I feel to have "met" so many new "friends" in this crafty online community - and I'm so very thankful you visit with us here. I learn from you, am inspired by you, encouraged by you and appreciate you more than I can express. Thank you.
Don't forget, you have until December 14th to enter the Where Women Create Giveaway (I'm the Day 4 feature!) and there are so many fantastic prizes you can win over there. You must stop by!
I think I will go take a hot bath and ponder my "nothing" schedule for the week...wish me luck on actually doing "nothing" :>) Yeah, right!?!
