I am such a lucky Momma! I have finally gotten around to sitting down to write a couple blog posts to thank people for some gifts that I have won through blog land. I have not forgotten, just have been a little pre-occupied with other things. My little guy has figured out that he can get on the couch all by himself. So alot of my day is spent trying to keep him from climbing off the couch head first and then the resting to keep braxton hicks contractions at bay. There hasn't been much in the way of craftyness.. though the thoughts are there as I am laying down resting.
Back in March Kelly over at I have a Notion hosted a Machine Embroidery Blog Hop sponsored by Anita Goodesign (who designs some of my favorite embroidery designs). After visiting every blog on the hop and entering the give away at all of them I was the lucky winner at Cheeky Cognoscenti of one of Anitas Special Editions. I choose Oriental Day Dream.
To make things more fun Kelly tossed in a $25 gift certificate to her shop IHAN for anyone that advertised the hop on their blog, face book or twitter. Guess what I was the lucky winner there too!!! Yeah me. I'm so excited. I haven't used the certificate yet because I just can't decide what to spend it on there is just too many great things.
My most recent bout of luck was on the IHAN blog. Kelly wrote all about how to use Transfer Artist Paper you can check out her post here. C&T Publishing gave away a 5 pk of the paper and I was the lucky winner. I have some military photos of my husband and I and am trying to decide what I want to do with them.
So BIG, THANK YOUS to Anita Goodesign, Kelly and the IHAN crew and to C&T Publishing.
