About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Nancy Drew Winner!

The winner of my Nancy Drew giveaway is Olenka!  Congratulations Olenka!  I will be sending your surprise along in a few days.  For now it's a mystery!;)
This the Nancy Drew package that I created for my partner, Shawnee.  I hope that she loves everything...
Shawnee loves cherries and sewing so I sent her some Mary Engelbreit fabric...

   I made her a Nancy Drew clipboard.  This is the back...

   And this is the front...

   I made Shawnee a Nancy Drew charm bracelet with images and charms from my mystery, The Mystery of the Tolling Bell.   I also included a  few images from her mystery, The Password to Larkspur Lane, just for fun.   The Mystery of the Tolling Bell took place by the sea (lighthouse, sand dollar charms and seashell charms), included a darling tea house (teacup charm), a locked door (lock and key charm), a mysterious bell (bell charm), and diamonds (Swarovski crystal)!

   I also included a mystery bookmark.  It had tiny weapons, like in the game, Clue!  And, of course, I had to put in a bit of chocolate.:)

   Last, but not least, I gave her the book The Lost Files of Nancy Drew.  This is the neatest book!  It highlights many of Nancy's mysteries and even includes Nancy Drew postcards!

   I had such fun hosting this swap!  It has been my favorite so far!  I hope that all of you can join me again next year.;)

Lovely items Lori...congrats to the winner!

Jamie :)

p.s. I would LOVE to take the leap but we are playing it by ear right now because it means we'll probably have to rent our home and that scares me, tee hee. I'll definitely keep ya posted!

Darlene said...

To answer your question - softball!! She loves playing softball and is really good at it. She is on a machine pitch league this year and has played 1st base for the last couple of years. Last night she even made a triple play...WOOHOO!! Her team (overall) is not very good this year (at all) but I have told her to just learn all she can, and do the best she can for the team, at this stage.

What a fabulous package you sent Shawnee! She's one fortunate gal.
The pool in my blog pictures are of a local public pool where I will be spending a lot of time this summer. I think you thought it was the hotel from my trip, but it isn't. I'll be posting some of our vacation pics soon. Thanks for stopping by.

This is SUCH an amazing package -- my family is so impressed and wanted me to be sure to kick up my offerings.

It's finally all finished, packaged and being sent tomorrow. IF you're really curious, I'm posting pictures on my blog ... otherwise, stay away for a few days. =)

THANK YOU for a super-fun and personally challenging swap!
