Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

I Won! I Won!

Last week, I opened my mailbox to find a box of goodies from Jill at file under misc. I won her "Get Organized" contest! (Actually, I was second runner up...the first place winner never sent her snail-mail address. You snooze you lose!) Jill makes the prettiest little gift items. Small notebooks, dolls, ornaments. She is an inspiration when I'm feeling craftily stifled!
That girl can pack a lot of goodies in a small plastic bag!
When I opened the package, I knew my days of being stifled were over for a while. Jill sent me loads of her favorite supplies for crafting!



I love these paper flowers!

Squares of fabric went straight to my quilting stash!

The bottom paper clip has a magnet on the back. It is hanging on the door to my garage. I put reminder notes there. We grab the notes as we're headed to the car! No excuse to forget anything!


Stickers, ribbons, Bingo card! The ideas are just spinning around in my head!


I LOVE glitter! I channel my inner 9 year old when glitter and glue are brought out of the closet!



Words, frames, scrapbooking and card making supplies out the ying-yang!



Aren't ya'll jealous? Thanks Jill! Beth (first winner), glad you weren't paying attention!

Of course you will now have to create something bee-yoo-tee-ful and share that, too. Don't you just love it when people don't pay attention and you profit from it?
