The Party Continues with another GIVEAWAY..........the Winner is.......MEG! And I'd like you to meet Jamie!

The Winner is............. Meg Duerksen! Meg was a feature of mine way back when! I love Meg! She's been a loyal reader and I really really want to see her house.

I'm so sorry I couldn't pick everyone! But the party continues and we have another giveaway today! My dear friend Torreh is giving this vinyl piece away! Don't you LOVE IT! It could be yours! The one she is giving away will be RED! For some reason, I'm thinking you Texan's need this.
Just leave me a comment by 5pm tomorrow night ( wednesday )........the hoop you have to jump through on this one?..........you MUST have my button......it's SO DANG CUTE, I really don't know why you wouldn't want it. :) The code is at the very bottom of the blog.
If your name is drawn AND you have the code..........you win!


OK.......on with what you like about TCB..........
And a bit of a feature for you all. THIS is the reason I feature women like you! Women who are humble about their talent.......women who blush when they are recognized for their talent. I think it's important for people to get that pat on the back every now and then. I think we forget how unique we really are when we get caught up in our everyday lives.
Jaime with Busy Bizzy B is who I'm talkin' about.



Jaime commented on how she loves TCB and that she too hopes to be featured when she's more creative............or something like that. When I visited her blog, that's when I realized how much I love bringing the attention to a blogger and how much they offer. I'm bordering on getting sappy here, but really. We work hard, we want to be the perfect mothers, have the perfect house.......we're trying........and hopefully we figure out that it really isn't about perfection, it's about providing a perfect landing for our children. I can't tell you how lucky those of you are that you have a talent worth filling an Etsy shop full of. I think it's amazing that mothers can add to the family income and still be home raising their babies. I think it's even more amazing when we can all support that. Home Made is always better than Target. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Target........but in the spirit of crafty women workin' it to build an income.......my hat goes off to you!

Jaime does just that. She has two little ones and she sews or creates whatever her heart desires. It's all for sale in her etsy shop. Cute stuff too.

Like personalized cards.......cute. So many people would NEVER make cards, or even begin to know how......so if you're a card maker.........know that you are talented!









Or how about a cute paint can. Sure we scrappers or paper crafters have seen these forever.........we see the plain paint can in the craft store and know exactly what they're for..........but you know what? Not everyone has seen this and it steals the show more times than not! Love this. Love the colors, the ribbon,............love it all. And while we're talking ribbon............love this garland.Another reminder that THIS is a cute idea! I have yet to do one, but I'm thinking it may be a great teachers gift this year.Wait! But my son's teacher is pregnant............I bet she would LOVE these designer looking burp cloths. Beautiful. Jamie is pretty creative..........she made this cute little dress from a onesie. I never get tired of appliqued tee's. If I could sew.........I would do this.Besides being crafty with a needle........she knows her way around a re purpose job! We've seen these frames a dime a dozen at garage sales.........or you may have one around your house somewhere.Nothing a little spray paint can't enhance!


This girl is thinking..........thinking all the time. So here's to 2 years of celebrating the creative side, the nurturing side of all mothers just trying to make home a better place.


Don't forget to leave a grab my button and comment before heading to Jaime's blog.

What kind of cake should we have today?

Nancy Sabina said...

That vinyl would be perfect for my little sister (who happens to be a true Texan at heart!). She's just finishing college and dreaming about what comes next in her life.

Jennifer said...

I love your blog. I just started blogging a couple of months ago and have found it nice to find crafty people and get ideas. I did not start my "crafting" addiction until last year when diagnosed with adult ADD, since then all the crafty side of me has come out with the help of medicine. My husband says I am a different "and better" wife. Who would have ever thought me a "true domestic stay at home mom" and I LOVE it. Thanks for the blog.....
