Lots of Exciting News for March!!!

Lots of great things happening at TDIPT next month that I have to shout out about. Hey, that rhythms! It is our 1 year anniversary as a co-op selling group! Thanks to all our loyal customers, You made it happen. So we only saw fitting to give back to our customers! With that in mind we are going to be having a HUGE GIVEAWAY with fantastic designs to special people. That's FREE primitives from top notch designers FOLKS! DON'T MISS OUT!!! My free giveaway is that picture at the top of a 30" wide spring swag. It reads "Spring Has Sprung". You have to go to the TDIPT Mercantile on the 1st to find out the details of how to enter and win! Be sure to check out the newest designs on March 1st.
On another note..Just in case you've all been wondering where I've been. Well, time got away from me this month. I had some surgery and then developed a sinus infection which seems to be going away, I hope. I'm healing nicely and you'll be hearing more from me now on a regular basis.
I added alot of new blogging friends to visit this past month. Be sure to check em all out.
It's almost planting time here in Southern California. We have been having rain, YES, rain! I'm really hoping to get a mini garden going this year with some homegrown tomatoes if nothing else. Also some pretty flowers. I'll probably choose to do the above ground plots since our ground/sand is like hard clay/rock.
Took a trip to my local scrapbooking store today. I love that place! I just keep collecting all these supplies but do nothing with them. Am I the only one who does this insane thing? I am determined to take a class. I love those mini scrapbooks they make with chipboard!
Then there's the quilting I wanna do! Just too many irons in the fire here. I need some organizational skills. Send me some if you have any.
Here's some tips for primitive designing if you need any:
Cut off pieces of thread to attach your primitively already stained dollies, and coffee stain them and then wrap them around an empty spool so when you have to touch up something the thread will already match the body!

Hate it when your sewing machine runs out of bobbin thread? Dang, that always happens when you're on a roll huh? I suggest purchasing the "Sidewinder" bobbin threader!! OMG!! You will think you've gone to heaven!! It's well worth the $30! check it out here.I have had one for a few months now and I'm hooked! Reason I suggest there is because I just purchased one for my daughter and they sell it cheaper than most and their shipping is lower. TRUST ME!! THIS WILL BE THE BEST $30 YOU'LL DROP! Well worth it!

That's all the tips I have for now, but don't worry, I'll be back ;-)

Annnnndddd theee Winnnersss Areee.....

Roll out the red carpet! It's time to announce the winners of my 1st Blog Giveaway. There were alot of entries, but I heard that one of the blogs had like 721 entries and she closed it. That's alot of entrys!

I summoned my 21 month old grandson, Jayden, to pick the winners. I made the mistake of writing the names on lil post-its with the sticky stuff. What a mess.When he grabbed one several came with it. He wasn't too cooperative. Finally I was able to get him to give me just one. That winner was "Windy Cindy". The second winner is Debbie from 2 crows. Congratulations to both winners! Each won a $25.00 gift certificate for my website at MUSTARD SEED ORIGNALS

It's been really cold outside here in Southern California. The coldest January since 1979! The nights have gotten down to 20 degrees at night! brrr that's cold! Plus with our natural gas prices so high it hits the pocketbook bad.

I've met alot of new bloggers through this giveaway. Watch for more great giveaways or contests in the future! Hope the groundhog didn't see his shadow where you live. I'm ready for Spring.

Thanks for stopping by, come back again soon :-)
