A giveaway! A ring sling!

Remember that ring sling I sewed for a new babe a few days ago?  Here I will refresh you…


I have enough fabric for another.  Want it?  Have a friend thats ready to pop?  Have a baby that needs somewhere to sit?  Comment here and that counts for one.  Share this somewhere and and that counts for two (let me know you did so in a comment).  Have a great thursday!  


waving (and winning) the banner of love -A GIVEAWAY-

I decided to surprise myself last week on the thirteenth of February at ten pm and do some creating.  Lee was at the office, as usual, studying for some quiz or writing a paper (I can never keep track), and I decided to stay up late.  You see, as a rule, I hit the hay at 9:30, at the very latest.  I have no need to reiterate what my nights look like, for I have made it clear and obvious no one does any sleeping for any length of time around here.  So, I broke my precious rule and got to work.

This is what I came up with.  


I set up a project the boys could make for their beloved daddy-o.  The next day, the boys had a messy yet satisfying time decorating their flags.



I had a ball picking out sentimental fabrics from this ginormous pile of -to be used for something, someday- stockpile of clothes from the last 7 years of our lives.


And I found the results of staying up late to be not so bad after all.  Of course everything must be done in moderation.  Don’t think I am going to go out partying anytime soon.  Though, wouldn’t that be nice?  I mean just once?  Sigh….

oh and to show off a bit… this is what my man came up with!  


a bouquet of vegetables!  how appropriate!

And so to spread the love, I decided to share one with one of you!  And not just any banner.  A banner of your liking.  A custom banner of your choice up to 13 letters long, enough for a happy birthday tradition.  So…. for one drawing give me a comment.  For two, follow my blog  and comment.  For three, share this page somewhere, follow and comment!  In a week or so, I will tally them up, draw one out of a hat (I still don’t know how to do this random number generator bologna) and perhaps you will be adorning your house in a banner of your own.


remember if you don’t play you can’t win!  

Winner is Beth W.!!!!!

Gnome Hat Giveaway!

Sure, it is only the day after Halloween, but I already am feeling the giving spirit creeping up on me.  I have been knitting up these little hats like wildfire lately, and I want to give one away!  I just thought… why not?!?  Leave a comment and tomorrow I will pick a winner with a random number generator (or maybe I will pick a number out of a hat because that seems beyond my computer capabilities) and mail one to the winner!  In a size of their choosing!  Yippee!


The winner is Letty!  Congrats on your little gnome!
