Prizes were mailed today! Sneak peek at the chair!

This is a $2.00 chair that I started decoupaging but it's not done yet.  Thought you'd like a sneak peek of something!! :)

Prizes were mailed and I'm so happy to send a gift to the UK but the post office makes it such a pain!  They want to sell you everything in there and I wasn't interested in buying!  I am very excited for each of you to get your packages.  I'm so excited to get mine. 
I went to some garage sales this morning and I did pretty good.  I have it in the car yet as I had to take a break.  But I'll get it out and take some photos and mow the grass!!  It's suppose to be up in the 80's tomorrow so I want to do it while it's cool.
I hope to have a better post tomorrow and lots more photos!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May Give Away Prizes I'm Giving Away

This is my post to let you know that I'm part of the May Give Away over at and this is one HUGE Give Away!!  Lots of people are participating and you just need to follow the link to catch up with everyone.  Here is what I'm giving away!  I made these by taking white cotton fabric and then fusing things to do with cats on it.  I would frame these and therefore, I did not finish the edges.  But you can finish the edges and make them into a doll quilt or whatever you decide.  I am adding some cat fabric so that you can make your own or do whatever you want.  These will each be a prize so we'll have two winners!!  Here is what you need to do in order to enter - post about this give away on your blog for one entry and become a follower for two entries.  Make sure when you leave a comment that you leave your e-mail address.  I'll use the random counter and I will ship internationally.  There will be some other surprises in your package that you will like.  I am excited to find out who the winners are!!
