I am so very far behind updating about precious pieces I’ve found or been given in giveaways…  So here are a few things.

TopofArmoirePretty little things :)

(Little birdies in nests from Kitty & Me Designs, Mouse with cherry on cupcake from Myko Bocek Studios,  Candy Chick (behind those gorgeous feathers) from Cari Skuse for Haiti by Hand, Pink Heart Pillow Sachet from Natalea Kandefer won at her Valentine’s Day Tea Party, and Spring is Here Martini Glass Doll from Sandy)

SandysDollA close up of Sandy’s doll… I drooled over this for a month until I couldn’t stand it anymore and had to have it!!!  Inside the glass are an old key, a domino, vintage buttons, a ballerina, and a pink nesting spring bird!  But truly, it was the feathers, the fan, the beautiful doll, and bird that told me I needed this :)

This is my collection of Primas before the giveaway…


And here’s what $100 of Prima goodies looks like…


Last week I had an order for some cute little baby boy carnival tickets:


And I made this quick tag as a special thank you for their order :)


More super quick pieces are these cards I made for Deb, Pam, and Jodie :)




I’m not the greatest card maker… but I felt like I should send cards along with the little treasures I sent to these beautiful ladies!

That’s all for tonight :)  I have to get to bed!  Bella’s already up there warming it up for me- hehe :)  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

All you have to do is follow this link:, print out the coupon, and take it to your nearest VS store. The best part- NO PURCHASE NECESSARY and no shipping charges! Yeay!!! :) So go get your free undies! :)

Hippity Hoppity

Easter is just around the corner!!


When I was little, the Easter Bunny (aka My mom) used

to hide our Easter baskets and presents!




Easter morning, my sister and I would wake up early, just

like Christmas morning, and go in search of our Easter baskets…


I’ve found mine hidden in the shower, in the wall where the

circuit breakers were, behind the sofa, in the pantry…




Where did you find yours?  :)

Yes.... Seriously.

Another Swap!!! :D

This one is being put together by Sarah, the sweetheart of My So Called Junky Life. She makes the most gorgeous jewelry, so be sure to check out her blog and Etsy page!

Please click on the image above if you'd like to join!!

I have finally started on my P&P swaps! Well, at least I know what I'm going to make up... Now I just have to get all the pieces together. No matter how many supplies I seem to have, I never have quite the right thing to complete my projects!! This time, I had to order more little pastel posies- from Andrea at Popalicioustoo! She just sent me something on Monday... I feel bad for making her go to the post office again!! (like I'm her only customer... I'm sure she has to go all the time!! She should just make the mailman pick everything up at her house! Well- maybe she does!)

And my gosh, have you seen the new Primas??? They are just gorgeous!! Michelle, from A Million Memories, just sent out an email the other day with all the new ones she stocked her store with.... I really need to win the lottery!! Ok, so first would be pay off my mom's house and car, plan a wedding, then figure out where to move and buy a house... maybe a nice vacation... and then Crafting supplies shopping spree!! lol :) haha- maybe not in that order! Oh, dreams...!

Also- DO NOT MISS your chance to win this gorgeous gorgeous bedding set!!!!

If you win and don't want it- I do!!! lol :) The Creative Connection has a brand new blog and their first giveaway is of this gorgeous blue Summer Sky comforter set, complete with the comforter, shams, bedskirt, and 3 decorative pillows!! I am loving just looking at this :)

I have also started in on my first swap that's due- Rhea's Easter Basket Swap. So far, my cups are painted. Lol- I'm hoping tomorrow I can finish them up, and then I just need to find 3 more things for each of my partners. I always wonder about making something for swaps- instead of buying things... I worry that my partners might not like what I make them- we don't always have the same styles... and I think that at least with embellishing supplies like glitter and ribbons and things, they'll be able to use them to make something they like... Well, I guess the point of making something for someone is so they don't have to do it themselves. :) Ok, well I will think on that a little more.

I gotta say- I am so glad this week is over... Even though it was a good week. (I mean work week.) I am really slacking on writing my Master's project... I think it's because I feel like I should move on, get a better high paying job after I get my Master's- after all, isn't that why I'm paying all this money for school?? But I feel like I'm not ready to go... so I'm stalling. Well, I think my advisor is ready to kick my butt into gear- so I'm glad that the week is over so I can just deal with it next week!! lol :) Did I mention I am a huge procrastinator?? :)

Thank you for stopping by to visit!! If I don't post between now and then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
