Spring Giveaway!

Happy Easter!!! I hope that you are all having a wonderful day. We have cleaned, decorated, dyed, hidden and hunted and are now awaiting family to come for dinner. This year's festivities are low-keyed, partly because I was sick and partly because Easter is so early this year and I didn't really feel 'ready' for it. But the bunny did visit and left a few goodies for the kiddos :)
Annemarie let me know that she received a little RAK that I sent her, wow the mail was fast! I enjoy her way with words and her stitching and this was my little way of brightening her day as she has brightened many of mine.

Floss Ring Tag: front
Design: Diane Williams, Tokens of Affection
(Christmas Remembered book 19 by Leisure Arts)
Fabric: 28ct Monaco in Blue Glass
Fibers: DMC as charted

I've had over 2000 visits to my blog, I am just astounded...and thrilled!!! I can't believe that anyone is interested in what little 'ol me is doing! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I love reading all of your wonderful comments, you guys are the best! I've found so much inspiration and creativity in all of your blogs......it is helping me to be more productive and creative and to push my boundaries. As my little thank you, I'm offering this collection of 10 tins of various shapes and sizes (empty) as a spring giveaway!
If you would like to be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment on THIS post only. You have until midnight (MDT) next Saturday (3/29/08). On Sunday morning I'll make one of the kiddos earn their keep by being a random number generator. This drawing is open to everyone......Good luck :)

Staci, You are very popular it looks like. Of course it probably helped that Vonna advertised your wonderful blog on hers. I myself have enjoyed your blog. How did you ever do without it. I would be interested in those tins. Happy Stitching and I hope you are feeling better.

What a wonderful gift! I may have to try my hand at making one of those. Is it soft or do you put something in between the layers?
