tomorrow nerd and my mom and i are hooking up for a weekend of crafting. we are going to go to a three day craft getaway where we get to make cards and scrapbook as long as we want. all night. all day. somewhere in between. i am so excited. we get to do this twice a year and i love it. it is rare to have that much time to just make cards, and to be next to my mom and sister make it about as good as it can get. oh, there will be a little wine as well which doesn't hurt. we get to craft to our hearts content in an awesome hotel in redmond where we hang out in luxury. big love.
to celebrate my card extravaganza, i am going to do my very first blog giveaway. i know, pretty exciting huh? if you leave me a comment, i will enter you in to the drawing for five of my homemade cards. pictures of three of the cards are below, the other two will be a surprise. the cards will come with envelopes and i will even put stamps on the envelopes. it doesn't get much better than that does it? leave a comment on my blog by 5pm sunday and i will announce the random winner in my sunday night blog. good luck peeps.
on the craft front, a lovely soul (jenny) has just opened her first etsy shop and her homemade items rock, i know which one i am going to pick up. as she notes on her site she creates fabric art and handmade items from burlap, linen, modern fabrics and natural material. if you are looking for a great piece for you or someone you love, check it out and keep your eyes on this shop, she will be posting more as she makes it. jenny made me and malena two little lovebirds when i was diagnosed and they are still in the same spot in our living room so that we can see them everyday, we can use all the love we can get.
friday, i have been waiting for you all week my friend. you have no idea how good it is to see you.
