Time for a giveaway

I've been busy catching up with things around here since I got home , so really haven't had alot to share "creatively" here on the the blog. So.... I was thinking maybe a giveaway mind be fun. Here's what I put together. ( you can click on it to see it larger)
. Crafty Secrets Christmas stickers, Chipboard house and little hanger. Red and Green Glimmer Mist, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L , and 8x8 Acrylic Page Frame, a Melissa Frances Mini Album, paper mache tags, Christmas embellishments ect..

All you have to do, is leave a comment in this post, and your name is in the hat.
I'll draw a winner next Friday OCTOBER 30th. I'll post the winner that morning. Good luck!
************************************************
I wanted to show you the fun dress form I found at Hobby Lobby before I left for Canada. 10$!!
So I brought it home and dressed it up with some lace, ribbon, and other pretties. I'm loving it.

I came home to some fun boxes of goodies. One of which was from Scrapbook Trends Magazine. I was so happy with the way my project was photographed in the Aug-Sept issue. What a cute little display.
This mail holder was a really inexpensive wood piece I found at Micheal's. Now it's back hanging on the wall here in my work room.

I got quite a bit done around here yesterday..but today ..well not so much yet. lol I should go get groceries..but cant seem to make myself. It's rainly and gloomy again today,.. I'd rather curl up with my book , wrapped up in a big comfy blanket. We'll see. lol

Hope all of you are having a great day, and looking forward to a nice weekend!

Hi Vicki -

I think the mail wood piece is sweet. I really love what you've done with the Dress Form. They just opened a Hobby Lobby about an hour from me. I've never been to one so I plan to schedule a day off of work and go explore. So I will be on the lookout for something like your Dress Form.
Oh and off topic - what does a pixie spool fairy look like?

Have a wonderful weekend.

There was another dress form in our Kansas City Hobby Lobby on clearance last month. I looked at it, and looked at it, and looked at it, but it was too darn big. (it couldn't fit into the shopping cart) Now, looking at yours, I regret my decision!

What wonderful things you have gathered - are you sure you want to give them away? I'm sure that everyone is drooling over them. I love getting your posts, they make me want to stop doing housework (ick) and go CREATE something. So happy to read that you had fun at Mystic Paper, Love the store but it's 80 miles from me so I don't get there as often as I'd like. Tattered Angels are my favorite toy - I used the Walnut Gold to jazz up a pumpkin that I decoupaged for our county fair (WOW did it come out nice) - I even won a blue ribbon for it - yes, you can Glimmer Mist over Mod Podge! Thanks for giving us all so much inspiriation
