goodies to give away...

Anyone up for a chance to win something?
Tammy over at Dream, Create & Share is playing this fun blog candy game. I had to be one of the first five to leave a comment on her blog and continue the blog candy give away on my blog, so here we go!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice... for you! This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year - 2009, but you won't know when!
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. I have tons of ideas, but who knows what it will be? Not you, that's for sure!
5. The catch? OK, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who comment on the post on your blog! (then come here and post, I WILL check your blog *wink*) The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

So, who's it going to be?

Thanks for playing... I'm excited!

** If you're one of the 5, be sure to email me (use the Contact Me link) your address so I know where to send the stuff when I make it! **

playin' with some stuff...

I love this set!

These trees are tiny, but ADORABLE!

This is the card organizer book for an upcoming class... the directions are straight from SCS and it's super easy to make!

Each page is a pocket with a calendar to write your special dates on... tuck your cards into the pockets for that month...

happy birthday...

to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Milo... Happy Birthday to you!

Milo is 1 today (or so we decided, not knowing when his exact birthday was). We got a cute 'cake' from Bone Appetite:

It was, apparently, lip-smackin' good...

There's a bit of a cake story, but I have to run. I will post the full details later!
