3 for me, 3 for you
Oh man. What a great weekend. I am in complete and utter denial that its all over, as sitting, eating, crocheting, playing, talking, laughing, watching and reading seem to be just exactly my pace right now. If I had to narrow the long weekend down into 3 best things, they'd be this:
*Toughest decision made: Do I crochet some more or let Juliana give me a manicure?
*Most thankful moments: Those spent watching my husband build the world's greatest treehouse for a mess of excited children. Particularly the morning we both awoke at 5am, unable to sleep so we got up, had quiet coffee and drew up more detailed plans for the treehouse and headed to Home Depot before anyone was awake.
*Most blissful interlude: Getting back in my warm bed in the middle of a cold night after (yet another) bathroom trip, only to snuggle into some seriously flippy and motorboat like motions dancing around in my belly. "Oh, hi", I said.
Now here's 3 for you:
*I finally have the new kitchen goods on the way which means its time to announce our winning Contributing Soup Editor! Here we go:
STEPHANIE, come on down! Stephanie of Loft Creations shared a yummy sounding Tomato White Bean Soup and will be soon showing off her cooking skills in a new apron and cleaning up her mess with some lovely dishtowels. Send me an email with your address, to claim your goods!
*If you'd like a chance to win Seams To Me or some fabric, Jennifer at Craftsanity, has just posted our 2nd interview podcast, so go leave a comment to enter your chance to win before Dec.15th. Listening to the podcast is not a requirement, 'less of course you just want to.
*Also, the fabulous folks at SewMamaSew have offered a chance to win my book as well, so go throw your name in the hat here. I think perhaps they will draw a name Dec. 3rd, so ya might wanna hurry!
That was all very linky.
Now, LOTS of you are wondering when you will hear about the MOTHER of all giveaways, and I am pretty certain that the winners will be getting contacted starting today. I should make clear that I am not in charge of this giveaway, just a happy and (mostly) innocent bystander, who is just as excited as you to see who's gonna win all this stuff! But I did also get it confirmed that the winners will be posted at the sweepstakes site next week for clarification. Exciting!
Photos above: images that I worked on for my new linens (available now) as well as some holiday home goods (rugs, stockings, etc.) that won't be available for another year. Sheesh, that's quite a wait. At least it wasn't too much of a stretch for my model to play with popcorn and cranberries this time of year. We'll be doing that for reals this weekend!
