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!

Old Books, a new swap, fun winnings and MY WINNER!

Awesome APRIL is my big winner! Now she gets to have fun picking out fabrics and pom pom trim! April, you are awesome! I loved reading all the fun facts about you, Cutie!

I am having so much fun making my scarves! If you would like to try making some, check out Julie's blog!

If you would like a scarf, but don't have the time to make one, just let me know....

I would be happy to make one for you!

They will be $16 and that includes postage...

Just e-mail me! Lori toosillysisters@cox.net

Savoring... old books. Don't be afraid to re-read books from your younger days. Nancy Drew and I spent the last two evenings together by the fire. I wasn't sure if we still "clicked" as we are older now. I have to tell you that I loved our time together.:)

Just joined my first swap of the year! Won't you join me? $7 involving your favorite things!:)

I wanted to share two fabulous items that I won! This wonderful book from BeachBrights! Thanks again, Christy! This book has tons of great craft ideas with lovely pictures! Highly recommend it!

Just yesterday this incredible note card set arrived from Doodle Bugs! I won her giveaway!! Aren't they fun?! She has some for sale in her shop, too! Thanks, Sweets!

Hi Lori
Congratulations to my dear friend April. I am thrilled she won your giveaway. It was great to read all her comments. She is going to be spoilt for choice choosing a fabric. They are all gorgeous, especially the birdie one.
Looks like you won some wonderful swap goodies to enjoy.
We have 8 inches of snow now and tonight the temperature could drop to minus 11 here. Crazy.

Robin Beck said...

Look at you Miss Susie sewer! I love it!

Congratulations to April-Even I came back and read all her cute comments! So fun!

I'm still so behind, I really shouldn't be on this computer... So off I go to get busy!
Have a great evening Sis!

April said...

Thank you a thousand times over, Lori! I had such a ball leaving you comments. Every time something would pop into my head, I'd type away! How will I ever be able to choose from all those gorgeous fabrics? Decisions, decisions!

HEY GIRL, isn't it awesome to get back into the mystery world of Nancy Drew!! It's been a long time since I did a swap, this one sounds kinda cool, getting something that is special to someone else would be great! Kinda like a sweet surprise in the mail! I haven't been on the computer lately, had the YUCKY flu!! But, I think I'm getting the mood for crafting,sewing,crocheting,reading(ND books!)and swaping and blogging. Glad to see your doing good Take care, XO Fran.
