I like FISH and we saw some amazing Koi at Sholom Park yesterday. (I wonder if I can crochet one! lol)

I used IPICCY to put a mirror frame on this photo and I think it looks neat! We are having the most fabulous weather here in Florida!

Wish you were ALL here!

And now for the winners of my ‘crochet’ giveaway.

I used Random.org to choose my winner for the Americana ‘mat’ and the winner is

Introverted Art!

She’s one of my MOST favorite blogs! Visit her HERE to see her original art and the calendar she makes each month that you can download! You’ll LOVE her blog!

And for a little extra special giveaway, I made a pretty blue bracelet for Marcia at The Shop Around the Corner. She is one of the most giving people I know and has shared hundreds of hand made tags with friends. She’s talented and one of my blog friends that I call ‘Sis’!

I’ll keep practicing my crochet and have another giveaway soon!

That sounds like a THREAT! heeheehee!

Have you made something creative this week?

I love Koi fish. Amazing they get so huge. Our local nursery has a huge pond and lets my little one feed them. A real treat.

Susan said...

Our granddaughter is fascinated with Koi--I'll be sharing these with her:-D

Yes, keep sharing your crochet. Reminds me so much of all the beautiful things my mom used to make. She's out having too much fun with her friends these days, but she certainly put in her time. ;)

Vee said...

No...sigh...congrats to your winner! And to the one who gets the sweet bracelet. Fun. I always enjoy links so I'll be back to follow them when I don't have a vacuum cleaner to haul up the stairs.

Ellie VanCaster said...

Not terribly crafty but I did add an extension hose (complete with coupler and band clamps) to my furnace condsenser hose and re-routed it for less mess. ;-)
And most importantly, more that the drippy mess being gone, it's all organized and locked into the other hoses with cable ties. I think it looks beautiful if I do say so myself.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I've made a mess cleaning out a closet, does that count? ha ha! Congrats to your winners! Have a great day and enjoy that beautiful Florida sunshine on this first day of May!

Linda R said...

Hugs~

Noelle the dreamer said...

Diane, you're the best! I know Marcia will appreciate your thoughtfulness! She is a very special person, is she not? We'll have to lure her back to blogland and tell her how much we miss her.
Those koy fishes are startling in their colours! Good shot!
I envy your lovely sandy beaches, not the heat though Diane...70 degrees F is the maximum for this gal!
God bless Dear,
