Great News and a Giveaway!!

Okay before I get to my first giveaway EVER I wanted to share with you something that I am totally giddy about.  Across the street from our subdivision is a shopping center.  In that shopping center was a G-A-U-D-Y furniture place but when the economy took a turn they quickly went out of business.  Go figure. The store was empty for over a year.  I was driving by last week and saw that they were putting in this store:

Um...I seriously did a happy dance people, Paula Abdul clapping, Mary Murphy screaming and all. I may have even heard angels singing. I'm not lazy, okay maybe a little, but it is going to be so awesome to be able to drive 5 mins and shop for fabric or anything craft related for that matter.  The closest fabric store right now is Joanne's and it's about 20 mins away.  So last minute projects will be so much easier to accomplish cuz I'm all about the procrastination.


I told myself when I started this blog that I would write it for me and stay true to myself and that if people read it that would be great but if they didn't I was okay with that.  But then the comments started coming in and people actually hit the follow button and wanted to hear what I had to share and it felt great!  And I have met some wonderful, sweet , and talented women!  So I'm still writing this blog for me and being myself but I'm also writing it for you guys.  I'm just going to come out and say it.  I want to be accepted and I like feeling accepted.  Don't we all?  So thank you for making me feel good!!

And to show my gratitude I am having a giveaway!!!  I was at 21 followers for a couple of weeks and told my self and my friend Gwen @ Gwenny Penny (Hi Gwen!) that I would have a giveaway when I reached 25 followers.  Well I went from 21 to 26 in less then a day!  And since my rub on subway art has been such a hit I thought I would giveaway it away! And yes that includes the frame :-)

Connecting with people is one reason I love blogging. So bring on the comments and questions, they make my day! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say "hello!"

I love to reply to all comments so if your email is not linked to your profile I send my comment to this noreply guy. And that makes us both sad. Thanks!
