Today is about a giveaway over at Buy By Mom. The giveaway is

"For the Americana Bash, Sew Fierce is offering up one Custom Made to Order Infant Gift Set which includes:
  • (1) Monogrammed Embroidered Huggies Natural Care Wipes Travel Cases with Wipes Included
  • (1) Embroidered Bib with snap closure
  • (2) Matching Burp Cloths

Winner will get to select their choice of fabric, and Stephanie with Sew Fierce will go over all the details with the winner to ensure they get the perfect gift set."

Yes this is a direct quote from Buy By Mom.. I was not sure how to mention the contest in a way that would do it justice. But all the links are in the appropriate places to make sure you make your way over to check out the giveaway.

I found this by accident because Stephanie of Sew Fierce happened to spot the USMC uniform on my wonderful husband in my pic (Amazing how the military wives pick up on those...) and posted a comment so I went to her blog to show the love and in my snooping around found this.

So I wanted to do my job and spread the word!!!
I will be duplicating this and posting it on my other blog too!
Best of luck!

Posting some things I have done

My question for the day is
What was your favorite summer activity when you were young?

Today I added some things I did for my Aunt for Relay for Life and their survivor dinner. I really enjoyed doing these I did some other things to add to their goody bags. Once I get pictures of these items I will post them.
I made magnets and lapel pins.
The graphics I used were from Printables 2 Go
These were donated for the cause.

I hope everyone has a blessed day!
Enjoy! Huggs,

So this morning I'm feeling a little more rested after my busy weekend with friends.
I decided to try out my goodies that I had received before my friends arrived.
I actually made them some bracelets before they left no pics of them... but here are some I made this morning.
I found the idea on another site...(sorry I forgot where it was but the lady does have an etsy shop)
These are stretch bracelets....I got the idea from wanting to do some chainmail designs.
These are Oh rings and jumprings from Fire Mountain Gems.
The teal circles are the Oh rings that stretch and they are connected with jumprings.

So here is my take on these...

I really like this one with the silver and teal.
Turned out better than I thought.

Now I want to do some washer necklaces that I had seen on two other blogs...So I may go raid my Hubby's toolbox and see what I can find.

Here are the blogs I saw the washer jewlery on
The Creative Itch Boutique
The Creative Crate

Have a fun day crafting!

Crafting with the 8 yr old

Today is a craft with the 8 year old day. She is bored since school got out. So today we are going to recycle some old magizines and make some paper beads. I will post later our designs. It will be interesting to see what she comes up with. She marches to the beat of her own drum that is for sure.
