Tons of Fun!

GUESS WHAT??? I recently won TWO giveaways!!! Let's start at the beginning. Tina, of Tiny Bears, lives in Denmark. But she found me the week of 'Where Bloggers Create'. So when I went back to pay her a visit, I signed up for her wonderful giveaway. A trinket box...why can't I ever resist trinket boxes??? I have a million!

I just had to show you the cool postage stamps.

The cork on top is the handle to lift it by.
I LOVE the little gears...maps...tickets...!!!
You can check out Tina's blog here...and her shop, here. Thank You So Much Tina...I love it!!!
Next up, here's the homemade "business card" I made myself a while back so that when I ran into old friends...which happens ALL the time at Wedding Receptions, I could say, "Here you go...this will bring you up to date on all the kids, and all my silly nonsense." : )
BUT!!! One day I was visiting the Queen of Re, who was hosting a giveaway for Vintage Bella, and I couldn't resist. It's kind of silly really, since I never plan on going BIG, but OH the fun it will be to whip out this amazing card next time I run into an old friend. : )
Be sure to check out Vintage Bella's Shop here, for TONS of choices of business cards if you are in need. However, she also has plenty of other pretties to choose from in her Shop. Thank you SO MUCH, Heather for this completely frivolous, but wonderful giveaway. And thank you, Queen of Re for hosting it. I'm so happy with the way they turned out.
And, if I don't post these soon they'll just get lost in the shuffle. These are pix I've taken over the last two Sunday nights. "LITTLE COUSINS".
Too precious for words!
Ever adorable Princess C. : )
Aunt Sara giving a piano lesson???
What do you think...was it worth Sara disowning me for this one? I think so, since she and all her goofy friends post even goofier pix on their pages. Love you, Sara. Here's hoping you still love your mother. : )

Love the little cousins holding hands ~ it's just perfect!

The trinket box couldn't have found a better home and the business cards (both styles) are great. I love all the little details on the box - especially the cute handle.

Awesome trinket box! The stamps on the package were great, too! My kids think I'm so silly when I go ga-ga over the stamps!
The business card is so beautiful!
Hope Sara still loves you. The pictures are great.

Precious pic of hand holding cousins. In about 10 years I'm not sure they're gonna love it. We'll see! You're as lucky as me! Too bad we don't gamble we could meet in Vegas! That trinket box is so cute. Lucky you. Great idea with the "funny business" cards. I'm going to order some. Mimi

Fantastic box, Fabulous business cards, funny children and friendly blog...I enjoyed my visit, once again!

First of all, how cute are all those kids? Very sweet shots and Sara will be happy she was snapped (20 years from now)! Excellent give away prizes! My fave was the business card! I bookmarked her shop already. I think a card with blog info on it is a great idea because people are always, always, forgetting how to type it in and then they email me. Better than the card even - the card holder! You have the cutest stuff! Did you make that too? How are cute little Christmas ideas coming along. (Yeah, yeah, I know - there are some holidays that come beforehand...whatevah!) :)

Lucky girl. Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I think those photos are real keepers I would blow the one of them holding hands and make it black and white and put it on a canvas. Oh my it would be wonderful for them in years to come.

Me again ~ I think that is a wonderful photo of your daughter and it reminds me so much of "happy faces" my Mandy makes. We are truly blessed to have such delightful young women in our lives!!

What an amazing trinket box! It's so YOU! Had to stop in to say your business cards are over the top beautiful! Your work deserves such an announcement! Elizabeth

Scrap for Joy said...

Wow-your "wins" are great. Love the business cards and sweetie...you are a big deal to your readers!!!! The trinket box is really perfect for you. I can see your wheels turning already. Last winter I decided to watch all of the versions of P & P I could find. What a wonderful story and the costumes and settings were so lush! The cousins picture is so sweet. They are lucky to live close to each other and visit. xoxo
