My gosh, I was on a winning streak for a little while! Now I need to get on a thank you streak.
First, I won a box of paper crafting goodness from Raesha at My Love. Generous Raesha gave away four boxes of stuff! Confession: I was hoping to win either the box of sewing goodness or the box of vintage goodness, but you know what? I'm glad I won this one instead. I don't do a whole lot of paper crafting, but I have been trying to make cards instead of buying them, and I was getting kind of tired of my one box of cards and one pad of paper.
Yowza! Look at all that stuff! Something I've always wanted to do is an embellished composition book. And look! There was one in there! And cards from a cute, vintage game! And tiny little tags! Oh, and the tiles at the top of this post? They were in there too!
Thanks so much, Raesha. Thanks, also, for the second prize. Yep, I won something else. And this one, I'm proud to say, actually took some skill. Ready for this? I guessed which part of her outfit wasn't thrifted. --polishing nails on my lapel--
For this, I received a kiss. Um, and some candy which seems to have...uh...disappeared. Is that not cute?
Finally, I won one of SouleMama's frequent giveaways. My comment was randomly selected, and I received a copy of MixTape magazine aaaaaaaaaall the way from Australia!
You all know how cheap I am, so winning this is the only way I'd get to see it! It's a lovely little 'zine, filled with stories that are right in my zone. (Well, maybe not the roller derby story.)
One story was about The Toy Society. I first heard of TS around Christmastime and thought it sounded like a wonderful idea, but (as I tend to do) I've been dragging my feet about participating. This article is going to be the kick in the hiney I need to get it done. If you're not sure what the heck I'm talking about, people make toys and then leave them in public places for others to find. I am definitely going to give that a go.
I'd like to pay all this good fortune forward by passing my copy of MixTape along to someone else, just as soon as I'm finished with it1 If you're interested, just leave a comment on this post. I'm not sure when I'm going to finish it, so I won't put a limit on the giveaway. I'll just pick a name when I'm done, okay?
