Canela at Cinnamon*Sticks Boutique is having an awesome giveaway! You know how I love those giveaways! I never win, but you can't win if you don't play, so... :)

Check out her blog and her Etsy shop. She makes some cool jewelry. All of the giveaway items are awesome and they're all homemade! If I don't win, and probably even if I do, I see some shopping in the very near future for me...

Welcome winter!!!

**Winter Storm Warning in Effect**

Five words I could have waited a few more weeks (months) to hear! Living in Wisconsin, you think I would have gotten used to snow. I've lived here for most of my life (except a few years in New Hampshire), so it's not like I haven't dealt with snow every year. For some reason though, the first snowfall always seems sooo magical and beautiful and the rest... not so much! Don't get me wrong, the snow is still beautiful. It just seems to have lost the magic. The girls are hoping for a snow day and although I would love an extra day with them... I have Christmas shopping to do! Although, there is something to be said for snow days! Hot chocolate, snuggling, making snowmen... Can't beat 'em, join 'em right!!

I've just sent off my card for Shelly's cupcake card challenge on her blog. Hope I win! She's giving away a couple of target gift cards and one to her etsy shop! Fun, fun, fun! But whew! Challenging. You could o…

Shop update!

I'm baaack! I feel like I've been on vacation. Not so, simply too busy and too lazy to update my shop or my blog. So, tonight for the first time in forever, I'm doing both! Check out my Etsy shop for some cool new rings. I've recently signed on with a local brick and mortar shop to sell some of my goodies, so I'm very excited! Most of my items never make it to Etsy (due to the painful process involved in downloading from my camera), but hopefully I'll get a new and improved camera for Christmas (hint hint, Mike) which will make it much easier.

My first attempt at a craft fair was a success. Hence the new home for my "stuff" in an actual store. I was also asked to attend another local craft fair. WOO HOO!! I love making things and have found my inner artist.

I've begun to decorate for Christmas. I love this time of year and the spirit that goes with it. So, yes I am one of THOSE people. I've been listening and singing Christmas music for a coup…

Ok, one last giveaway post!! :)

Sorry, but this one is just too good to pass up. I mean who wouldn't want a chance (or 10) to win this quilt?

Or this one?

Or maybe this one?

Sounds great, right? Well, it's easy to enter. Just go to

Good luck!!!
