Recent Giveaway Wins and Vintage Valentine's Day Swap

Hi all I've been remiss in posting a couple of wonderful giveaways I've won recently as well as about the awesome swap package I received. So...

From the wonderful Anna Sophia over at Our Daily Chocolate, I won this totally cool pendant! My picture does not do this pendant justice. I love it! The neutral colors go with everything. Head on over to Anna Sophia's blog. She's having a 100th post giveaway!!

The other giveaway I won is this great purse via Vanessa's blog, It's from Deb at GirlygirlBags. See her Etsy site here. Let me just tell you, I was not having the best day and I received an email from Vanessa telling me I won!! Woo Hoo!! The bag is as delish as it looks!!

Last but not least (gosh I hate saying that, but it's true :), my amazing swap package from the fabulous Terisa at SabiiWabii. She looked into my soul and sent me a swap box that took my breath away. Terisa, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Please check out her Etsy shop for the coolest stuff ever!! Btw, I swiped this pic of my swap box from Terisa's blog because my pictures turned out terrible!
I hope you've all had some good karma coming your way too!! I'm off to play with my goodies :)


  1. Wow, you cleaned up with the swaps! :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my little rooster girl.
    She'll be available as a print just as soon as the original sells. (if!)

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


I'm not sure where I found this, but thank you whoever you are!

My two younger daughters have birthdays this weekend. They are two years minus a day apart.  Blech!  I feel for them, but hey, God's will.

Anyway, they are turning 13 and 15 and NEITHER OF THEM WANTED A CAKE. No cake. For a birthday. No birthday cake.  Huh. I did not make a cake.  I did try convincing them (because, well, it's cake), but nope.  I didn't see the point in making cakes if they would only eat a tiny piece to make me feel good and then I'd have all of that cake staring at me. For days.....

For those of you who aren't crafty or live under a rock if you are in the sewing world, Quilt Market is in Portland this weekend.  I am soooo jealous.  It is a trade show, only open to those who own shops, pattern makers, fabric makers, etc.  Someday, I intend to go to quilt market.  If you'd like to see some fabric/quilt eye candy, google spring 2013 quilt market.  Be prepared, it's awesome…

Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …
