Just because....

I want to THANK YOU with a GIVEAWAY!

It's been so much fun having this blog
and sharing all my creations with friends and family!

I've met so many incredible people and made so many new friends!

Every time I visit your blogs,
I find the perfect quote or photo to inspire me
and realize how valuable each and every one of you are to me!

I must say I never realized how many SUPER talented people
there were out there in the 'real world' until I started looking at blogs!
If you want proof of this......go down my blog list and spend some time on my favorites!
And there are MANY more out there! I discover new blogs all the time!

But what can I give?

Does anyone need a 'mouse in the house'?

My mice are so good for so many things!
A must for your hobby room or work area!
(maybe your kitchen? heehee)

My mice are very accustomed to living in a house!


But if the weather's nice they might go horse back riding.


Or just stop to smell the roses!


In the hobby room they might hide in the sewing basket....


or put on an apron that you've just made!


But one thing's for sure.....they get along well with others!


So here are a family of mice that would love to move into YOUR home!


And here's a pattern for cute apron ornaments.
(the little apron I've made is the first one I've tried
so I'm going to keep it but I wanted to show it to give you an idea! )


If you are not at all interested in the pattern
...maybe you don't sew....
I will include something else for FUN!

Please just leave a comment on this post
and I will choose a winner from the comments here
on the first day of Spring, March 20th (in the morning)!

Thank you for making my life so much brighter and more FUN!

Happy Spring everyone!

I have just come for a visit and had to go back a few posts to get caught up on your trip. It sounds like a great time and such beautiful weather. I think North Carolina is having a hard time deciding what kind of weather to settle on.

This post is too cute!! Those little bell noses on your mice are adorable and the fun they are having is delightful. Love that little apron too.

I'd be thrilled to be considered for your giveaway.

Draffin Bears said...

Your little mice are ever so cute.

I can say the same back ~ it has been lovely to find your blog and see what exciting things you are making and up to. There are so many very talented folk out there.

Have a great week
Hugs
Carolyn
