and the winner is...

He was one of only a few of you who actually took part in my giveaway this past week. He does some great stuff with iPhone apps (is that right? I'm so dumb about iThings!) and some really cool mixed media stuff.  Check out his blog and click the links to his etsy shops and other cool stuff!  I am terribly grateful for his efforts to get my name out there, as well!  Thank you so much, Dave, for all of your re-tweeting and encouraging words!  I got a few more twitter followers through you, too.
So, I got some new friends, and you will be getting a handmade quilled snowflake and a cotton bag with one of my original designs.  I really hope you like them or know someone who would like them?

I will keep this post short, too.  I have been contacted 3 times by our water department in efforts to change our 20 year old water meter.  I finally called yesterday, so they will be coming next week.  Do you know where the water meter is?  It's behind all of our junk in the basement.  Included in that 'junk' are about 3 or 4 full boards of sheetrock!  So, after work today i started cleaning the basement.  Hubby even helped take cardboard to the recycling station.  I wanted to do more, but I spent all day in bed when I got out of work yesterday, because I was feeling sick.  Can you guess what helped my sore throat?  A shot of whiskey!  My throat felt like I was swallowing gravel by the end of the day.  After a shot of whiskey, if felt so much better.  And even this morning it barely hurt at all!  (That's your hot tip for the day!)

Anyway, Congrats, Dave.  Thank you for helping me out this week!  I'm trying to like Pinterest, still. I imagine my day off next week will be taken up by that, now that I've started to poke around. 


  1. Congrats, Dave! *^_^* Yeah, I still don't think that I could get into Pinterest. Oh, well.

  2. Wow! I do need to come visiting more often!! Talk about a great day! I rec'd a piece of great mail art in today's post...and a fun email from my new paper swap partner who lives in South Africa...and started the day with a wonderful yoga class. My day keeps getting better and better!!! Thanks for the nice things you said about my blog...and didn't I warn you about Pinterest!! HeHeHe...
