Weekend Wonders!!

I know it's not the weekend yet technically. But to me Friday is the beginning of the weekend! This week has been insane!!! Friends and I opened our annual "Craft & Gift Shop" on Wed. so I've been busy there making sure everything is running smoothly. Hopefully I will have a post with pictures next week.

**Today I am going to start working on pairing everyone for the Christmas Ornament/Decoration Swap! When I started the swap I was hoping for a good turnout, I think it will be great - 94 people have joined the swap!! Hopefully I will have everyone paired and emailed by the end of Sunday!

The Etsy Mini's on the sidebars are all new! Again the shops are featuring mostly fall items, there are some amazing shops here. Please take time to check them out!! If you have a shop that will be full of winter/christmas items - let me know. I'm looking for Etsy mini's for November!

Ok - I promise that this will be the last time I post a Give Away I have won. But I absolutely LOVE this one and was thrilled that I won. This quilted wall hanging comes from The Quilted House an amazing shop on Etsy. Michelle has the most amazing hot pads, bags (you know I love bags!!), quilted bookmarks, mini totes (just too cute!), placemats, coasters and quilted cards. She sent me one of the cards too - it's wonderful!! The quilt I received is beautiful! The quality of her work is simply amazing. There just aren't enough words to describe how beautiful it is, and the picture just doesn't do it justice. I bought what I need to make a hanger and this will be on my wall year round!! Michelle also has a wonderful blog I love to visit: While the Cat's Away. Please check it out too!

Now for some blogs I found that you just have to see:

Stylish Stems also has a beautiful shop with amazing wreaths. I would like one for each season from this shop - but I need to sell some of my own things and make some money first. (hint hint LOL) They have announced on their blog about a Sale they are having - 30% off till Oct. 18th!!


You know I love bags!! Found this amazing blog, with a bag give away! (the blog is great too! )

Here is a great new blog, again with an awesome give away!! You really do need to check out her jewelry shop too. AMAZING!!

That's it for now!! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!!
