Happy Monday! It's been over a week since I last blogged. My wireless router is on it's last leg and goes in and out so my computer time since the middle of last week has been hit or miss at best!
I haven't really been that productive this past week either. Not really sure why other than laziness has taken over! I have tons of ideas and projects that I want to get started on or have actually started on and just need to finish. I just can't seem to find the time or energy to get things completed. I'm definitely gonna have to do better!
I have been hinting at a giveaway for a couple of weeks now and I've finally gotten one together for you. It's gonna be a combination Fall/Halloween themed giveaway. Included are the following: my very first gameboard attempt which is a checkerboard with a crow and stars. This is on a thin piece of wood and I have attached a hanger on the back so it could be hung on a wall if you so desire. The background is orange and the checkerboard, crow, and stars are done in black. I've distressed it a bit although it's hard to tell in the pics. Also included in this giveaway is a ceramic pie plate with potpourri. This is a beautiful terra cotta color, perfect for fall decor. Finally, one of my signature rag garlands, done in orange fabric and a candy corn print fabric. This measures about 65 inches or so in length. Perfect to drape on a fireplace mantel or a hutch or maybe a small window. I've included individual pics of each offering so you can get a better idea of what you will be getting.
O.k., now here's the rules:
You must be a follower of my blog. If you aren't a follower, sign up! I love followers and the more, the merrier!! If I get to 250 followers, there may be some extras thrown in for the lucky winner, or I may pick two winners, who knows!!
You must leave a comment on this post only, telling me you want to enter. I will not accept entries for comments left on any other post.
You don't have to have a blog to enter, but if you do, I would very much appreciate you posting this giveaway on your sidebar. This will help to attract new followers and get me to 250!

If you don't leave me this info and you are picked as the winner, I will have to choose someone else.
This giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only. Sorry, but postage costs are outrageous and money is tight right now for all of us. I hope you understand.
This giveaway will end on Sunday, September 12 and I will announce the winner on Monday, September 13.
I have gotten a few things accomplished lately. I made some faux caramel apples. I am amazed at how real looking these things are. In fact, my stepson came for a visit and asked if he could have one to eat! I took that as a compliment. Here they are:
I've also started on some more of the stuffed pumpkins. These are super easy to make and work up very quickly. I am having a lot of fun with these. These in this picture aren't finished, but I love the rich colors and wanted to share them with you. I am thinking of making a three tiered one to use as a centerpiece. We'll see how that turns out!
Well, that's about it for now. I hope everyone has a great week!
Until next time. . .
