Hot, Hot Giveaway!

I thought I would do a Hot, Hot Giveaway in honor of our heat index ranging from 105- 110 today.... lol! You gotta laugh! Anyway, this giveaway is for 2 colorful kitchen towels, you can use them to wash dishes, you can use them to wipe the counters and they're made out of cotton yarn so you can throw them in the washer & dryer.

They're about 10" x 7.5"... and isn't the color perfect for a HOT giveaway?

All you have to do to enter this giveaway is post a comment in this blog or on the Facebook page letting me know what the heat index is suppose to be in your neck of the woods.

For extra entries... ask your friends to come enter and tell them to add your name to their comment.

Entries must be received before Sunday at midnight. I will pick a winner Monday morning (7/18/11). Giveaway open to USA only.

Thinking Fall/Winter season

I have lots of ideas for the coming fall/winter season. Yeah, I'm thinking fall/winter even though the heat index hit 104 today in my neck of the woods. I guess I'm hoping my cooler season weather inspirations & finds keep me cooler... wishful thinking, ha!

I finished a really cool "fashionista" hat today, it's made out of chunky wool, super neat! I think anyway. I need to find somebody to model it for me so I can take pics & put it in the store hopefully soon and hopefully y'all will like it as much as I do :o)

I'll be back tomorrow with another giveaway!!

Etsy Fun Finds

I thought I would post an Etsy Fun Finds maybe once a week to show you some of the things in my favorites list.

Let's start with something I found this morning. Isn't this hedgehog pincushion adorable? It stole my heart for sure!! You can find him & other fun pincushions at lifepieces shop

These cute little spool magnets would look great on your refrigerator or craft bulletin. You can find them at Eisley Ray. She also has some beautiful girl clothes which unfortunately I couldn't get my boys to agree to wear... too bad. LOL!

I just love this extra large beach bag, those bold red flowers make me smile. You can find this bag in a variety of colors at LucyJaneStudios.

Okay, I was planning on adding a couple more things but my mouse has decided that wants some cheese and refuses to work properly so I'm stopping before I throw it out the window.

Happy 4th of July weekend!! :o)

Etsy Deals on Heartsy

I have found this cool new site, it's called and it’s sort of like Groupon for handmade stuff mostly on Etsy! If you're like me and love handmade stuff and love Etsy then this is a site you want to check out for sure.

Signing up is free and there are new offers every day. For example, today's deal is $9 for $20 Online Store Credit at Lazy Day Cottage on Etsy. So you pay $9 and are able to buy $20 worth of fun products in this Etsy store. The only thing I would advice you on is that you check out the store before you buy the offer just to make sure that there are things in there you want to buy.

Sign up using my friend referral link and we both
will get $5 when you sign up and purchase your first deal. Who doesn't like free credits?!?

And who knows, maybe pretty soon I will also have an offer in there for you ;o)

Snow Day #5 Giveaway

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth... lol! My free time just has been drastically reduced by joining the work force full time. And here I thought I didn't have much free time when I was working part time from home... ha!!

Anyway, since we're home again today for the 5th snow day of the season I thought I would revive this blog and also give away one of the cute hats in my store.

This giveaway is for this Mustard/Brown Flower Hat.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment here or in my facebook page letting me know how is the weather in your neck of the woods... I do have to mention that I will be pretty jealous of those with nice 70's weather, ha!!

You can add more entries:

- Subscribe to my facebook page and/or this blog (if you have already subscribed then you already have an extra entry!!)

- Let me know if you share this giveaway post with your friends via facebook and/or your own blog.

- Also, ask your friends to mention your name when they post a comment (here or on facebook). Each time somebody mentions your name it will add an entry in your name.

- One more!! Visit the store and add me to your Etsy circle, add a comment letting me know you did that (leave one if you already have added me to your circle).

Winner will be announced tonight (Feb 9th) at 9:30pm (CT)

Pretty easy, huh? Okay, then... go comment!!

Update: Ooops, I realized that somebody could go in & buy the hat I was giving away so I had to remove it from the store but I added another pic to this post. I'm blaming it on my frozen brain... ha!
