Today's the last day to sign up for my giveaway!

Boy, what a lllloooonnnnggg week I've had! Busy, busy, busy! I haven't has a minute to blog at all this week and I think I am having withdrawals!!! I did have a minute to throw together a few small craft things this week, but I haven't had a minute to take pics of them yet so I will be sharing them with y'all this coming week.

I just wanted to take a minute and remind everybody that my 200+ followers giveaway ends today. I will be drawing a winner in the morning and will announce it then. Here's what's up for grabs, in case you've forgotten:

We have a cabinet/shelf thingy in our bathroom that hangs behind the bathroom door. It was just ugly wood when we moved here so I had hubby take it down and I painted it black. That helped it a lot, but I still wasn't happy with it because there were no doors or anything covering it and since we don't have a medicine cabinet in there, we used it to store all our toiletries and stuff like that. With it being behind the door, it's not something you see if you just walk into the bathroom, but when you shut the door, there it is, jumping right out at you! So, I was thinking of buying a tension rod and hanging a homespun curtain over it when hubby spied some lattice shutters at a flea market one weekend and the wheels started turning in his head! He picked up four of these shutters which consisted of two pieces hinged together. Low and behold, they were the perfect size for our bathroom cabinet and the best part is, he only paid $4 for all of them!! I took the homespun material that I was going to use for the curtains and just stapled them in a crunched up style to the back of the doors. Hubby hung them for me and voila, a finished medicine cabinet at last!!!

And here's one showing one of the doors open:

Well, that's it for me today. I've got to get busy getting some stuff done here around the house, then I'm off to one of my favorite flea markets to do some treasure hunting! Hope everyone has a great day!

Until next time. . .
