Food, Family and...Alligators!

I am thankful for a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. It was full of fun with tons of food and memories. The best part of the week was the day we spent at Wakulla Springs State Park near Tallahassee. Here are a few memories of the week.

Watching for Alligators

We saw at least 8 or 9 Alligators!

I hope your Thanksgiving was as delicious as ours!

Stocking Stuffer and the Winner

My favorite stocking stuffer is magazine subscriptions. It is the gift that truly keeps on giving (for at least a year). I love getting magazines in the mail. It is such a treat to get home after work and find a new crisp magazine waiting to inspire me. It is like getting a surprise present in the mail every month. Right now I receive 4 magazines: Country Living, Real Simple, Better Homes and Gardens, and Ready Made. My favorite magazines are those that focus on thrifting and crafting. I love my magazines.

OK and now the winner of my unique little coin purse!

#6 Saving Capulet! She says her favorite stocking stuffers are miniature items for dolls. I agree, small versions of big things are so charming!

A New Design

I have been working all morning on this new design. I like how it turned out. Now, I have to make a bunch of them for Textures. Holiday shopping is just a week away! Yippee!

I will be drawing for the give-a-way tonight!

Tag! You're it!

OK guys...does anyone else want free stuff? I am giving away a handmade coin purse and right now I only have 4 people in the contest. That is just fine, but your chances of winning are not too shabby if you throw your name into the mix! Go ahead and leave a comment might win!

I am so excited. I finally figured out how to make my own tags for my bags. I used the logo that my husband created for me, a little sun that looks like a single piece of thread. In the past I had this super Etsy seller, mommiemadeit, make my tags. She was great, but I wanted to figure out how to do it myself. It wasn't too hard, either! I think I may do a tutorial soon to show you how I did it.

Coin Purse Give-a-Way

I am up to my 100th post and I thought I would do something special. I just received a shipment of these little flex frames and am making some coin purses that will be great as stocking stuffers. The first one I made I used some of my own original fabric. I know I don't have a huge following on my blog, but maybe the few loyal readers that I do have would like to take part in a give-a-way? I will be giving away this cute little coin purse. Perfect for you to hold your itty-bittys. All you need to do is leave a comment telling me your all-time-favorite stocking stuffer. (Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you, should you win). I will randomly pick a winner next Saturday, Nov. 13th.
