Lots to share today! Winning, Blog Giveaways, and some new pics….

Hi Blog Friends,

winter crafts 001

Look at this harvest moon. The other night I was letting my little Snoopy Dog out and seen this in the horizon. At first I thought the side of the mountain was on fire, because earlier in the day there was an actual fire on the mountain. The air all day had smelled like smoke. Then when I focused more on it, I could see it was the moon. Just beautiful although this photo doesn’t do it justice.

I won an awesome giveaway over at Paxton Valley Folk Art.


This sweet Snowman Welcome Candle Holder is coming to live with me! Thank You Deb!! Can’t wait to receive him!!!! If you’ve never been over to Deb’s blog, click on the link above and visit her. She is very talented and I love to visit her blog.

I’ve been surfing around the blog site this morning and came upon some GREAT GIVEAWAYS!

I want to give a special plug to Brenda at The Rusty Thimble.

Here are some little ornies I made using free patterns from You are special. Sandy is so generous and has great patterns that are so easy to make. I purchased some wool for the Santa beards from Backwoods Wonders. She has some great wool to offer and reasonable priced.

Gotta get back to crafting, so have a wonderful week and enjoy all that the Fall Season offers, cause before you know it, it’ll be winter. Brrrrrr.

  2. Jean, you have been a busy girl! Everything looks wonderful, I especially love your Santas! Your snowman candle holder is on his way to you, got him into the mail today finally. Sorry for the delay in getting him sent off, I've been "wheel-less" as our car was in at the mechanics and I didn't have a car to get to the post office. Give me an email when he arrives and thanks again for entering my giveaway! Deb
