Three Long Over-Due Thankyou's.

If you haven't bothered to enter a blog give-away because you think
 you won't win...please ignore your inner, pessimistic self! 
 I had only been at this blogging thing for about a month when
 I decided, "Oh, what the heck?"  and do you know that in 1 day
I actually won 2 give-aways?  And then a week or so later, I won another!
Go enter! and have some fun getting packages in the mail!
Fyi, my own owl give-away ends tonight (10/24)!

Big "Thank You!" #1
Here's an adorable Hallowen bracelet that I won
 from Bree at Distant Pickles  (courtesy of Cherry Creations). 

I love it and have been wearing it every day! 
Cherry Creations will custom-make these
any way you like so I'm thinking they'd be so fun
to give as unique Christmas gifts
--and reasonably priced!
(The above link to Distant Pickles will get you more info and
a link to Cherry Creations Etsy store)
Thanks again, Bree, for hosting the give-away!

Big "Thank You" #2
I'm guessing you've all seen the
WantobeQuilter Buttons splashed all over blog-land.
Madame Samm has a been very busy bee.
In fact, I don't see how she sleeps!
For more info, you can visit her blog. 
And sign up!  The give-aways are still going!

This fabric is so beautiful--I have some ideas
 in mind and can't wait to use it! 

Thank you, Madame Samm!
And thank you for your blog help!


Big "Thank You" #3
And, lastly, UCreate hosted a give-away from
Mixed Bag Designs.

 Honestly, this is something I never would have
splurged on for myself.  See, I've been planning on
making a set of my own forever...of course,
that never happened.  I chose to get 6 big,
beautiful shopping bags, all in different patterns
 of black/white and several different sizes. 

(ever wonder why, no matter what you do, a picture just won't center???)
It's amusing to see other shoppers raising
their eyebrows at these uh-mayz-ing bags. 
Now that I've used them (a LOT), I sing
their praises to everyone who asks me about them.
I generally do 2 weeks of shopping on one day  
so I use every single one of these bags.

And these are very durable, easy to clean--
pretty sure I'll have them a long time.
Thanks, UCreate!  What a treat!
 Again, Christmas presents....!

Wow, I don't know if you ever checked out "Give Away Day" over at Sew Mama Sew, but I entered a ton of those giveaways and didn't win anything! The only thing I've won is a jelly roll. I would have never ever bought one for myself so that made it even better.. That apple desert look tasty..I love apples.. I have to have it with ice cream though :)
