Meet Rosie...very soft and feminine...And last, but not least, Blue Belle. What can I say about Blue Belle...well, let's just say she's...kinda blue-ish.All the girls have a pretty wide ribbon strap sewn in so that you can hang them and ALWAYS know where they are. Your needle will always be handy to make those pretty buttons look like you've stitched 'em right onto your cards. (I HATE it when I have ONE button to put on a card and it takes me 20 minutes to locate a needle and thread to make it look good!) And, speaking of thread, look what's on the back...
...a handy dandy pocket, in which you will find your basic creme and white floss. (If this looks like creme and creme...it is--I have a little shopping to do before these go out so that everyone will have creme and white.)
Well--there you have it! The cat's out of the bag. The blogaversary gifts have been revealed!!Hope you like 'em...and if you do...you had better leave me a comment, because--to be in the drawing for these--you'll need to comment on this post. If you would like to think of something nice to say about me, like what a one-of-a-kind and talented artist you think I am, (I told you--I'm tired, and now giddy) that would be great to include, but if you're really just wanting a pin cushion, you can keep it brief. If you want to leave some helpful advice for the coming year...for example..."sense of humor needs improvement"...I can take it--lay it on me!! I plan to announce the winners in the afternoon, next Sunday. I'll let the winners choose their cushion on a first come, first served basis as winners' emails come in. And, for those of you who commented on my sneak peeks...you get an extra spot in the draw for each comment you left on the peeks. I HAVE TO DO IT!!! Those comments made it so much fun!!! And by the way...there will be nothing but the most fair and objective random drawing system for the overwhelming number of participants expected...my kids! I'll number the comments (adding in those extra bonus ones) and my kids will be thrilled to pick the winners out for me.
SERIOUSLY now, this blog has been so much fun for me during the past year...I'm hooked!! I never dreamed, as I clicked away a year ago on my first post, that I was in for such a treat!! I LOVE the inspiration, and more than that, I LOVE the friendship and encouragement you all bring me. YOU ARE A BLESSING TO ME, and I thank you, dear friends.
Thank you so much for joining me today and coming to the party--hope you have enjoyed yourself.
Many blessings to you today, and throughout your week!!
