Yep... more winnings!

Isn't this the cutest wall pocket you've ever seen?  I just love it so much!  I won it from Brenda over at The Rusty Thimble.  It is so much more adorable in person!  I thought one of the tags fell off then I realized she added another tag so I can chose which one I want to use.  How clever!  The sweet annie smells so good!!  It's current home will be on the hall bench until I work in my family room where it will end up.  That's the room that has all the things that remind of us our loving families.  I love the Grandma's Garden tag and it does remind me of the beautiful flowers both of my grandma's grew.  Please go visit Brenda.  She does wonderful work, her hands are always busy and she has lots of neat things she makes.  She's also having another giveaway!  Thank you Brenda!

I told you that I just keep getting blessed with winning!  I won one of BeCca's Folk Art From The Harbor awesome stencils!!  I'm so glad this is my last week of work so I can have time to play around!  Signs and game boards are at the top of my list to make.  I so can't wait!  BeCca creates her own stencils!  Not only does she have a huge variety, but her prices are just right.  Go check out her many designs available, I'm sure you'll find a couple (hundred) you'll like!  =]  She's also having another giveaway!  I tried to take a picture of the stencil but since it's clear... well you know.  I'll show you a finished picture one of these days.  This is the pic she had on her blog.  Isn't it an awesome stencil?  I'm so excited about playing with it!  Thank you BeCca!

Another package I received in the mail came from another talented blogger.  I bought some ditty bags from Beryl over at Southern Blessings.  They are prim wonderful!!  Like Brenda, she is very creative and has her hands making something all the time.  Before I even opened the package I could smell a lovely mixture of vanilla and cinnamon.  Mmm... good!  They go well with my Amish bonnets and dress.  Go visit Beryl and see all her delightful creations.  I just popped on her blog and she's having a giveaway right now.  You don't want to miss it, it's primtastic!  Thank you Beryl!

I'm so excited that I have one more day of work and then I will be a full-time stay at home mom to three busy, fun-loving kids!  Working for Hobby Lobby since October 1991 has been an adventure.  I will truly miss that place and the people, but mostly that discount!  Hee hee!  It has been so much fun to see all the new stuff first hand, get first dibs on the newly marked down items.  I work in the seasonal department so we've been working on getting some fall things out to you all.  Christmas trees were shipped to us in April and went straight to our warehouse thank goodness!  But that Christmas is rolling in like crazy now.  I picked a good time to leave!  Haha!  Christmas picks, ribbon and crafts are getting ready to hit the shelves.  Ah yes, fun times indeed!  I'm glad that I will finally get to focus more on my family and more on my prims and of course, more on my blog (and more giveaways)!  =]

Oh, I almost forgot to mention another package that was waiting for me when I came home from vacation.  My husband stayed home to work and took care of our oldest who had to stay for summer school (hope he is learning his lesson). They went shopping for my birthday while I was gone.  When I walked in the door, sitting there on the table was a good sized box.  I was trying to remember what else I won or bought.  Lol!  Then I looked a little closer and realized it was a laptop!!!  YAH ME!!  So now I blog while doing laundry, blog while doing dishes, blog in-between vacuuming.  It is so awesome!!!!  I can be on the computer and get chores done.  I didn't realize how much sitting at a desktop computer confined you to one area.  I know, I'm behind the times.  Lol!  I'm so excited!

As you can tell, it's been a great week for me.  I'm thankful for all you wonderful prim friends.  I just love you guys!  =]  If you haven't signed up for my Mustard and Black giveaway, you better get over to that post and get it done!  Don't enter on this post.  Sorry, it won't count if you do.

Have a delightful week prims!

  7. This is a very happy, upbeat post! A laptop!?! You are blessed. I'd love to have one. And 2 more giveaways? Awesome! I have some of Brenda's and Beryl's goodies. They are definitely crafty people.... We are lucky to know them. And the biggest bonus of all--you are now a SAHM!!! Now that is an idea I can get behind. One of my really old-fashioned quirks---believing that people should raise their own children. Congratulations, Angie Berry! You are a blessed woman.

    Oh...I love Hobby Lobby!! I'm sure that was a fun place to work...but I would of been broke because I would want to buy everything. I used to work in a quilt shop and ya know where all my paycheck went to!! LOL...

    Have a wonderful weekend.
