We Got A Winner...

Well, I just have to say thank you to all of you who entered my Fun Little Giveaway!  I know it's something little but these sewing pins really do put a smile on my face every time I look at them.  For those of you who asked where I purchased them, I found a few stores on Etsy that sold them but only one that sold all 5 sets.  You can find the listing HERE!

And the winner of the assembled set of each pin in each design and color is....

 entry #62 ~ Rachel Locke!! 

Congratulations, Rachel!  Please send me the address you would like me to mail them to.


On another note, I will be M.I.A. for the next month.  It's summertime and I really need to spend some quality time with my kiddos and husband.  Much like last year I am going to take a break from crafting as much and really limiting my computer time so that I can have some quality time with my family.  I'll be back the end of August! 

I hope that you are all having a FANTASTIC Summer! :-)

A Fun Little Giveaway!!

Do you ever see something that is so cute that you just have to have but you can't decide which design or color you like best so after much thought and consideration, (like a whole 2 minutes worth) you just buy them all?  Normally I don't have the luxury of saying "I'll take 'em all!" but when that item doesn't cost "an arm and a leg", it does make it a little easier.  I found these sewing pins that seem to only be sold in the UK and I couldn't choose my favorite so I bought one set of each.  Hey, if they're going to take a ride across The Pond, you might as well get all of them, right? (Yes, that was one of the many excuses I made for buying them all!) 

 Aren't they lovely?

Being that 30 pins come in a set and I don't think I will ever need 150 sewing pins at one time, I thought this would be a great little Giveaway for my blogger friends.  Plus, I wanted to give each of you the chance to have the set that would have made it much easier for of each design in each color.  In other words, you can't find this set assembled in stores...clever, eh? 

This one could be yours! :-)

I know it's something little but after my ordeal of trying to decide, I thought I'd make it much easier for one of you to just have 'em all! 

You have up to 3 ways you can enter (make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry)~

1. Leave a comment telling me which design and color of the sewing pins is your favorite of the collection.

2. Follow my blog.

3. Blog or Twitter about the giveaway.

The winner will be picked by random selection via on Wednesday, July 14th @ 9pm PST!

Good Luck! :-)

Back to my Crafting Roots...

So, some of you may know that I didn't know I had a crafting bone in my body until I moved far away from all of my family and friends and become a "Stay at Home Mom".  After the first year of my new job title I realized that I needed something more and almost over night I became completely obsessed with creating thing.  One of the first things that really grabbed my attention (maybe because I had just had a baby at the time) was creating diaper cakes.  Diaper cakes are diapers arranged to look like a layered cake and decorated with ribbon.  I soon started selling them and for a while it became my part time job that took more time than a full time job.  With 3 of my own stores as well as selling wholesale I lost that desire I initially had for creating them. 

But, the other day a dear friend of mine contacted me interested in getting one for her friend's baby shower.  There something about making things for your friends that gets you excited to create.  So here is the Square "It's a Boy" Diaper Cake...

These aren't the best pictures but I had to add them to my blog for the memories of the experience.  The charms in the center of each bow say "It's a Boy".  Cute, huh!

Anywho Laurie, I hope that you and your friend like it!

And to all my blogger friends, I will be adding a little giveaway later tonight or early tomorrow!  Just a little something to let you all know I appreciate you! :-)
