Contest Time!

Crafty Blog of the Day: Endless Possiblities
Kim is funny as all get out (that's the Southern in me coming out)
and she paints the cutest things that you will just eat up, I tell ya!
She's got a brood of darling kiddos and still finds time to paint,
refinish furniture, and blog. If you are looking to be entertained and
check out some great goodies, check out her blog
...and tell her Barb the Craft Junkie sent ya!


First things first, to answer the questions on my last blog post...yes, I did try (and succeed) at doing the 2 second fold of a t-shirt. It took me about 15 or 20 minutes (I'm a glutton for punishment) to get it down right but now, whew!!! I am a pro. Every tshirt in our house has been folded and our armoir looks like the shelves at any good store would look. I love it!

In other news....

I have been busy lately but more busy with the house and helping hubby with his business than busy with taking care of my own.

Today that must change! As soon as I finish posting this, I am heading into my studio and I'm not coming out until I've completed all the projects I have on tap for today!

There, I've committed myself to it so now I have to do it, right? lol

I was looking through the sales at my Etsy and realized that the bracelets I did the tutorial for have been a popular seller. I've got orders for more that are to be personalized (if the FedEx dude will ever deliver my long awaited for beads I ordered days ago!) and I decided that it would be a good giveaway in a contest.

So, the long awaited contest that I've been talking about.

Starting today and running through July 24th (my birthday, in case you were wondering and want to start your shopping early), I have decided to run a Happy Birthday to Me contest on Craft Therapy.

The winner, chosen at random, will receive a custom made bracelet (to give you an idea, I have pictured a recent custom order over there <--- or you can check out others in my Etsy shop) with the word or name of their choice in the font and color palette of their choice. No shipping, no cost, nada, gratis, zip, zilch...FREE. But...yep, there is always a but, isn't there.

To enter you have to:

1. Post comments on my blog (anonymous comments will not count and will be deleted) with one entry per comment beginning now through the end of the contest at 11:59pm CST July, 23, 2008.
2. Post about this contest on your blog and share the link back in your comment.
3. Subscribe to my blog feed.
All entries must be received by Tuesday 7/24/2008 12:00am CST to be eligible. The winner will be randomly chosen. Open to US and Canada residents only, sorry.

I love contests and I thought it only fair, since I've been entering some on my favorite blogs, to reciprocate by holding one of my own.

Now, time to get to work. Y'all have a wonderful Friday!!!

Take care & happy crafting!

Peace & Love,
