All of us are winners.......

A few wks. ago I actually won something for a change!  Over at Barb's Heartstrokes blog, she had a giveaway and I won this cute little snowman that she handpainted!!
 It was wrapped in this darling little package and inside was a darling little snowman staring back at me!  She paints all sorts of things and is uber talented, so give her a visit.
 Last time I posted that I would reveal what all I sent in my Mystery Give~away packages.  I sent one package to England and she was interested in the sewing/quilting category, so this is what all I sent to Gill(no blog).  Just some fat quarters, some lace, a needle threader, patterns, tissue holder and a 'sewing' wristlet bag.

 Then on to another gal who won the cross stitch goodies..........Denise from Florida.
 I sent her a more 'beachy' theme, since she lives in the Sunshine State!!  A beach graph, beach kit, beach zip bag, needle threader, tapestry needles, linen, kleenex tissue holder...........

 And they all fit nicely in her little bag I made.
I am finished w/another sewing project I completed last wk.  It was a bit bigger project, but I completely forgot to take a pic of it, so will try to remember that next time!

Hope you all are enjoying what's left of your summer break!  our local schools start back up in about 3 wks. from today and the county schools start in less than 2 wks!!!  Wow, that seems so early!  I remember when I was a kid, school didn't start until right after Labor Day in Sept.  Wish it was still like that sometimes.  I think it's still way too HOT when school starts up, but I don't have any kids in school anymore, just college, which is on a bit different schedule, thank goodness!!

OH, I almost forgot ~ I'm having a sale in my Etsy shop for one week only~ FREE SHIPPING ~ when you spend $25.00 (or more) good through July 31st.  U.S. residents only!  Just use the coupon code - FREESHIP25, w/NO spaces.

See ya soon!

Thanks Tanya for the shout out about my little giveaway snowman! Thanks for sharing and your sweet comment!
We are going to try to squeeze in a vacation before school starts in 4 weeks--not sure where this summer went!
Thank you and enjoy your day!

Barb's snowman gift is so cute, Tanya, and what wonderful goodies you sent to your giveaway winners. I'm sure they were both thrilled :)

Can't believe school starts so soon--I think ours starts in four weeks (now that I have no kids in school, I really have no clue :)

Hi Tanya! Been awhile since I've been by for a visit, the kids keep me hopping. How lucky for you to win one of Barb's painted pieces, love that snowman!

Wow, your mystery giveaway packages were packed with fun goodies! I'm sure the recipients really enjoy them and having a good time with everything.

Speaking of school... we start in 5 days, can you believe it?! Me neither, seems like we just got out for the summer.

Anyway, nice to be back to blogging. I've missed you girl. Have a delightful week~
