A WIN.....And Happy New Year!!

I WON something - can you believe it!!

I never win anything - truly, honest, not kidding - and I've been meaning to post about it ever since I received it in the mail, but I guess life has just got in the way!

Awhile ago the site Sew, Mamma, Sew! held a "Giveaway Day" in which they listed a ton of sites where you could go visit and sign up for that particular blogs "giveaway". Well, why not?!? So, I went to several and threw my name in the pot and I WON!!

I won this beautiful Tiger Eye bookmark from Pam at
(picture courtesy of Pam's website!)

And, here it is in my book :) The pictures truly do not do it justice!! It's lovely - perfect balance of weight and length so it fits in nicely and does not fall out! Plus the fact that the Tiger's Eye is one of my favorite stones! Thank You so much to Pam for participating in the giveaway!!

I love Winnie the Pooh, so of course when this book came out, I just had to have a go at it :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was good and low key. Mom and I exchanged some great gifts and then just lounged about. Unfortunately my area got hit with LOTS of winter weather so my Dad was not able to come up and spend the day, but I was able to meet up with him the following Sunday, so all was good.

We are still being, blasted with snow and ice about every other day and now I hear it is to become bitterly cold - ahh, the joys of living in Iowa. I guess it is good that we are having this weather now during break from school, otherwise we would have a lot snow make up days and end up going until the middle of June - uck, no thank you!!

Anywho, I wish you all a crafty, safe, healthy, happy, and love filled New Year!!

Take Care and thanks for stopping - Elizabeth

Side note....when I was coming home from seeing my Dad this past Monday, I counted over 38 vehicles in the median/ditch along I35 within an approximate 25 miles - ouch! So PLEASE if you live in a snowy/icy area, BE CAREFUL!! - remember the story of the "Tortoise and the Hare" - slow and steady can win the race :)

That's just lovely, and unusual? I've not seen a bookmark like it, I had to study the photo of it in your book to figure how it 'worked'!
