Here's What's New...Besides The Giveaway Winner I Mean!

       I usually play coy with you and make you read all the way down the blog post before I tell you what the new Giveaway is...  ^_^ ...but not this time! This time I'm just gonna tell you up front...It's one of my Hide Away Slipper Key Chains (in the header photo). I realized that it's one of the few things I haven't given away on my blog!
     So, if you're interested in winning it, just follow the blog rules HERE...They're not that hard. Just be a follower of this blog and put the words "Enter Me" in your comment below. One comment a day for the whole 2 weeks until the drawing....See! 'No Biggie'! LOL
    As to the drawing for today, the red and white small headband...
      ...I got only 6 individuals that entered the Giveaway. One of them entered very regularly, almost every day...Good for her too, because her name was the first one that came up!...And she's the same winner as last time...CinLynnBoutique!...
       Congratulations Cindy!!...I know you probably can't believe it! But you are doing exactly what I tell everyone to do if they want to win...and you're winning! :-) ...So if anyone else wants to get in the drawing, now you know what to do! :-]
      That's what's new around my blog universe these about Giveaways and sales and crocheting! Are you bored with me yet?! LOL...Well, maybe if I spread the love around a little bit it might perk you up a bit!...So, here's what's new in some of your Etsy shops! ^_^ ...
       Bee, of Bee Happy blog, has this in her Etsy shop...

      Cindy, of CinLynn Boutique's Blogspot, has these...

       Did it perk you up?!...It did me! :-] And it makes me very happy to share because it looks like all of us are selling and creating like mad women right now!!..Keep up the good work ladies!! :-) Ahhhhh! Happiness!...Just keeping it 'light' and staying away from the dark side today. :-) ...
        Have a good day today everybody!!.......Nope! I'm not gonna say it! LOL...Silly kid!!!

 Why Do You Have To Share?

I know you're probably wondering:
"Why does she feel the need to share?"
I'll tell you. It's no secret!
It's because...Oh Well...YOU'RE THERE!

Why should I suffer this alone
when I can whine right in your ear?
And, after all, you came to visit,
and you still are sitting there!

Why should I keep it to myself...
this so-called 'Too Much Information'?
If you leave it up to me
they'll  be a 'Listen To Me' nation!

I like to share my good and bad.
I've done it for so many years.
But you don't really have to listen.
You could amputate your ears!


  1. Yay!!! Haley (my granddaughter) will look so cute in this!! I sure hope she keeps it on her head! LOL ...2 year olds!!
    I also want to say thanks for including my earrings in your post. I love all the new things in everyone's shops! Including your new scarf! So colorful!
    Thanks again my friend!
    Better go and get SOMETHING done today! LOL
    Have a great one!

  2. Congratulations Cindy!!
    Thanks for the links! I love those fabric fish - a bunch/shoal of them would look great hanging up!
    Enter me!

  3. CinLynn, I hope you send me a picture of Haley in the headband. I'd love to see if it fits her. I hope it's not another case of it being too big! LOL But at least it's an easy fix with a needle and thread. Yarn is easy. :-)...I love all the new things in everybody's shops too! Such a creative and inspiring bunch! ^_^ I'm nspired to list the other two scarves I've been putting off listing...Let's see if it actually happens! LOL Have a good day!...Take care of hubby too.

  4. gill, Hi!...You're welcome for the links. Actually, I link all of the photos on my blog anyway, but I forget to mention that sometimes. :-/ I'll try to do better letting everyone know that...And you're right about the little fish :-] You're also the very first one in the new Giveaway drawing! :-]

  5. Thanks for the mention, much appreciated :)

  16. When you feature crafts from other artists on your blog, I am always amazed at how talented these people are. One can see that a lot of love goes into these beautiful pieces. I should know as I was the fortunate winner of one of your fabulous give-aways. The stunning lap afghan you so kindly sent has been getting a lot of use lately, now that the colder temperatures are here. Enjoy your evening!

  17. Lisa, It was my pleasure! :-) And I looks good blown up in a large size!...And you're entered! Have a good rest of the day! :-]

  18. Julie, Hi!...Yes, these are some really talented ladies! I wish they had a voice in their distinctive industries so that their talent could really be appreciated...more so than just on my blog I mean. Soooo much talent (You too, by the way!) and soooo little exposure...A true labor of love just the same! :-)...And thank you, thank you, thank you, for the nice words about the use of the blanket you won. To hear that it's getting lots of use is like music to my ears! :-]...Have a comfy cozy evening!

  19. oo! that key chain is super cute! enter me!
    love that butterfly painting :)

  20. Alittlesprite, Will do! :-]

  21. That Darth Vader video was funny! I would loved to have seen that kids face!

  22. Jo-anne, Ha! Ha! I know!! I saw this video when I was watching the 'Superbowl' last year. It had me cracking up at how kids really buy in to the whole story. ^_^
