Six Days Till Giveaway Drawing!

Only a few more days till the Giveaway drawing which will be on July 31st, 2011! So hurry all who want to enter!

Thought I'd change my bg today and while I intended to show you pics of my new pennies, what better than to make a penny design bg! Although plain and simple for easy reading, it does have a little pizzazz, so I'm happy with it. (Yip, I'm being lazy these days and making simple and quick bg's, LOL!) Enough of my chatter....I wanted to show you pics of my goodies from Karen Martinsen of KM Primitives Penny Rugs! I have been crazy for the cute bee hive penny ever since I first saw it! Completely adorable! Then when I saw the cute Watering Can and Pansy's, had to have that one too! Love Karen's work and the detail is awesome! (Giggles, can you tell I'm excited with my new goodies???) K, here's the pics....

My pics do her awesome creations no justice at all, so go check out her site for better ones, LMBO! And I also got some cute prim dish towels that will look wonderful anywhere I put them, and some cute Spice bags! I can't wait to start priming the house and displaying all my goodies! I honestly hate having all my things packed up and not being able to see them everyday. But very hopefully that will all change soon!

I hope you ladies are excited about the giveaway and wait till you see what I have planned for the next one! (Giggles!) I think I'm getting better at this? With the high heat index crossing most of the states, I hope you all stay cool and out of this humidity! Wishing you a very blessed and wonderful day/weekend! And have fun crafting!

As for other updates I have a double praise report!....
I wish to thank everyone for your prayers for my hubby. After doc appt yesterday he was told he is very lucky, and that his sun spots will be treated with the suave and won't require surgery! He will start his treatment in Oct and see doc again in Nov. You can imagine what a load off my mind that was and I thank God for it!

And, my uncle, mom's brother, had fallen and got 5 stitches in his head. Was returned to nursing home then was walking around the next morning and had a bad headache. Was returned back to the ER and they found he was bleeding on his brain and flew him to Charleston. By the time they arrived there the docs said he probably wouldn't make it through the night, he had bled so much and they couldn't do anything for him, had to put him on life support. My sis (overseer of him) called his children in IL and they were going to have the life support disconnected since there was no more that could be done for him. Miraculously, he woke up and was responding to the nurses & doctors around 9pm that evening! So the next day they called sis and told her they were sending him back to the nursing home! Said they did another CT-scan and 1/2 the blood had disappeared and the remaining would be absorbed into his body. They were totally shocked with his improvement and said this very rarely happens, they just couldn't believe his condition change over night! As most of you know we just lost mom back in May, and he was the last living relative as all dad's people were already gone. So we thank each and everyone of you for your prayers!

I have been very busy and have lots of pics to show you. Hope to get those posted soon. Till next time I hope you all have fun crafting!
