And now for some EXCITING news!!!  Tomorrow, December 2nd, is no ordinary day.  Three years ago, I sat down at the computer, typed up this post, and decided to share my crafts with the internet world.  I had no idea that it would turn into something that I love so much!  I really wanted to do something to thank all of you, my readers.  Giveaway is now over.  So, to do that, I’ve organized a giveaway with three AWESOME prizes!!  On the last day of this series three winners will be chosen.

Our first lucky winner will go home with a $50 credit toward any purchase at!  They sell the cutest, personalized planners, stationary, luggage, gift labels, calendars, and much much more!  I have heard really great things about their planners, and I’ve even ordered a photo on canvas from them before.  I’m going to be super jealous of whoever wins this prize!

Our second winner will get a $30 store credit to The Twinery!  Don’t you just love baker’s twine?  How cute would your Christmas gifts look wrapped up with this?!  Stay tuned because I’ll also be using some of it for ornaments in the 12 day series.  Love it!

Our third winner will receive a $25 store credit to the Fat Quarter Shop!  Seriously, the cutest fabric prints, and I love that they have them in coordinating bundles.  Perfect for your sewing, quilting, or craft project!  Again, jealous of the person who wins this prize!
