What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

You Know You Want It!

What do you get when you cross a vintage bed sheet, a box of fabric scraps, a thrifty seamstress, and an important date in blogging history?

Give up?

My 25th Blog Post Give Away!!

Yes, that's right, folks. This is the 25th post to my blog and to commemorate this momentous occasion, I have created a little gift for my loyal and devoted fans.

Hey, don't roll your eyes. I mean, two months ago, I barely knew what a blog was. Today, my blog is one of the most widely-not-read blogs on the internet! Don't you think that is cause for celebration? I sure do!

And I'm also dying to know who is actually reading this blah-g, I mean blog. So-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o, I put my thinking cap on and decided the best way to find out who you are is to dangle a virtual carrot in front of you. Everyone who comments to this post, or emails me privately, saying, "I WANT THAT TOTE!" or something similar, will be entered into a drawing to win this cute, summery tote bag! I'll package it up and send it out to the winner....(you lucky dog.)

I was busy yesterday, creating this for one of you, my dear readers. This is a Laura Lee original design, quilted and constructed by moi, from once-new materials including a pretty, thrifted bed sheet!

How cool is that????

Well, I think it's pretty cool.

And not only that, I'm going to tuck a few fun surprises inside, just to keep you guessing!

Family members of the blog author may not enter. Hold on, that excludes 90% of you! Forget that, ANYONE can enter! I
n fact, I wish I could enter. But, I'll keep things fair....

Careful now! Don't spill your coffee all over the keyboard trying to be the first to enter. Everyone will get a fair chance. I'll put all the names in the bag and let my cute little non-reader, Maggie, draw the name. We'll do the drawing next week, after everyone has a few days to actually come here and read this. And don't worry, you probably stand a better chance than you think! I'll be thrilled if even a couple people respond!

So, come on out of the woodwork. Time to stop lurking and let your name be seen. Just admit it, my blog is your newest addiction....

I think it is adorable and I think I would be the best owner of it (if that counts for anything).

Laura, hope you finally got all the Gotcha Day posts. Let me know if you didn't....
love, Henriann
