Announcing a new giveaway for all my followers. Because I love 'new followers' and I love the holidays which are fast approaching! I am approaching 150 followers, but I don't have that many yet! When that number reaches 150 it will start a new countdown to a wonderful little giveaway having to do with "Holidays." There will be something from Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine's Day. Could be vintage, or might be handmade, or maybe just something to decorate with. I will post pictures as soon as I hit 150 followers. So come on! Join in the fun. Become a follower if you have not already done so. Leave a comment in one of the posts about this giveaway, and advertize this giveaway on your blog. Just grab the picture above to do so. Happy Holidays!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
