Last day of the giveaway and a few more odds and ends...

Ok, so today is the last day of my giveaway and I want to wish everyone good luck. I wish I could give each of you a tote bag, but there is only one of me and I have 2 part time jobs and 3 kids at
So, moving on to the odds and ends... I forgot to post a few pics on here the other day, so I'll do that today! It's a pic of the BEAUTIFUL necklace that I won from Tribalcime (Lisa). You have got to check out her blog and see all of the great things she makes. She has such wonderful talent. Her blog is www. Very original, cool stuff! I will make it to Kentucky one day Lisa!! :)

Anywho, I'm having my CraftyBay Farmgirl Meeting this Sunday, so I'm looking forward to having a good time with my best farmgirl pals! We;re doing a little crochet-a-long. Something to get the girls who have never crocheted a chance to learn a new craft. Next meeting will hopefully be me learning a new craft from one of them!

I want to wish all my blogging friends out there a wonderful weekend. Stay safe and stay warm! It's COLD here today so hopefully the weekend will warm up.

Take care and Happy Crafting!!!!

Valentine pics and other stuff :)

Well, here are some of the pics from Valentine's Day and a few other pics I threw in for good measure.
The beautiful flowers, card, and balloons are from my sweet hubby and children.Ally made me the family a special Valentine's card too. I love handmade gifts and cards. I save them all - I'm such a pack rat. The cute little heart bag with some great smelling bath soak is from Smoothiejuice on the MJF site and the adorable jewelry pouch is from Beverley from the MJF site. we had a hand crafted Valentine swap going and these were my swap gifts! I love them both. They are so great!
The doll is from Carol (my best bud) who is also a MJ Farmgirl and a member of my CraftyBay Farmgirls! Isn't she adorable??
The new pics are of my beautiful grand daughter. She's 2 now and cute as a button. She knows it too. lol
Last is my 40 year old balloon that for some reason is still holding air like it's new. Hmmmm - maybe to constantly remind me that I am getting Just kidding. I'm not old - I'm just getting started!
Well, there they are. My new pics. Now I am off to the doctors - yuck - I hate going to the doctors.
Anywho - have a great day and Happy Crafting!!

my "mesh" crocheted produce bag

Well, I finally made it to my 100th post! I've been sick with bronchitis for a month now, but I'm feeling a little better and wanted to have a giveaway for all my blogging friends.

I will run the giveaway until the 20th of Feb. Example of the tote bag above.

The rules are simple:
1.)Post a comment on here anywhere and you'll get an entry in the drawing. The more you comment, the more entries you get!
2.) Blog about my giveaway and you receive 2 entries!
See? I told you it was simple :)

The prize? Well, it's a handmade tote bag. You tell me in your comments what craft or crafts you do and I will personalize it for you. Whether you crochet, knit, make jewelry, decoupage, make soap, whatever! You won't be disappointed. The bag will be made from denim and have some pretty cool embellishments on it too! I will post a pic of an example for you to see.

Ok, so now on to the other stuff. I have bee making a few things since I've been sick. Passes the time and keeps me busy (when the kids aren' I've also celebrated my 40th birthday last Friday. Hubby threw me a surprise party and my friends and family were here. It was nice, but I was exhausted at the end of the night. Whew! Turning 40 is hard work :)

My daughter Samantha also celebrated her 21st birthday on the 25th and my youngest son Noah turned 8 on the 31st. My 7 year anniversary was on January 19th, so you can see that I've been busy this month, not to mention broke.....

Today, it's snowing and I have to get ready to go to work. I deliver food for a friend of mine when the school has no substitute work for me. It helps me make some extra money and keeps me busy. So I will post some pics of my recent creations and post a pic of what the giveaway tote bag will look like.

Have fun and Happy Crafting!!
