Life has been so hectic this month out here in Afghanistan!  I think I might have to open a new blog just for that.  But anyways, let's get to the giveaway!  Here we have my darling Daniel's Alice In Wonderland Ephemera playing cards:  That is what is up for grabs!!!  Check it out!  **note: this is ephemera and there are only 14 cards!!!**

Ok, here is how to play!

Simply leave me any kind of Alice in Wonderland Comment!  Too easy!  One winner will be drawn using a random number generator on August 5th!  Deadline to enter is August 4th!  Good Luck!!!

The giveaway did not really go as planned, I thought it would be easy.  Then I started to get complaints that google was not letting everyone leave comments.  Sooooooooooooo, to make it semi-fair without getting too deep into mathematics, I took the 13 comments and added my 18 followers to get 31.  Yes, I realize that this did give others an "edge", but I also did not anticipate google being so difficult!!!  I used the random number generator to get 19, which made JollyQuilter the winner!  I have emailed the winner and awaiting a response. 

I will be hosting a giveaway monthly!  So please, try again on my next Giveaway, which I should be announcing soon!  If you do not get to leave a comment, please shoot me an email and/or a message.  You can convo me on Etsy also!

Aloha and Happy Independence Day!  Let's keep America THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE!!!!  =)

Today is the last day to comment for the Waterlily Card Set Giveaway!  I realize that some people were unable to post comments, but do not fear!  If you followed me, you will get assigned a number, that will begin after the number of comments and I will use the random number generator.  Winner will be notified on July 4th.  Good Luck to all, I cannot wait to find out who wins!  Happy 4th of July America!

Only a few days left.........

I know I have been neglectful of my blog and all, but I am spending my few remaining days with my family before I deploy.  Dan will be manning my shop, and I will still be designing from afar and trying to Etsy as much as possible!!!!!  If I do not have your featured items up from the swap, they will come!  =)  Just means everyone gets featured longer on the top of my blog!  =)

Etsy Paper Team Swap Featuring PikakePress!

I hosted an item swap at Team Etsy Paper recently, and since all the results are not in, I figured I would start putting up the photos, one by one, to give each shop the limelight.

Here we have photos from CursiveArt who received these lovelies from PikakePress.

You may visit Leslie at PikakePress here:

She has so many nice things there!  OMG!  With all that island inspiration, an artist in Honolulu must get overload!  (I know I did Leslie, I lived there for 3 years!)  Anyways, without further ado, here are her items! Please click on the photo for a larger photo, you gotta see these!  Aloha!  =)

New Earrings for my daughter

I just bought the cutest little earrings ever for Lydia.  They are a going away gift for when I deploy, but I have already given them to her as I should be going soon.  I got them from a fellow ETSIAN FairyQueenQT, aka, Katie.  Check out her shop at:

Can't Shake this tonsil thing.........

Been rather ill these past couple of weeks with it being VERY difficult to swallow.  I have been able to do a little crafting and stuff, but nothing major.  I will go to the ER tomorrow if conditions do not improve.

I recently hosted an item swap for team ETSY PAPER!  I have some photos to list along with credits, so be looking for that daily.

I also have had some new shipments in!  A great collection of rubber stamps came today!  Everything from flower fairies to peter rabbit.  =)  Guess what I will be dragging myself to do, even if I am sick!

I am going to try to dedicate more to my blog, at least once a week!

OH, and I know I still have to pass on a blog award, so I will be looking for newbie blogs to pass that on to!

Buried in snow!

Oh I am living in a Winter Wonderland and it is awesome!  I have found that I have zero time to blog, post any "how tos" or anything else!  Wow, I don't know how other people manage to blog..........especially other artists!  I know I waste a lot of time on ETSY, but that is how I decompress!  I need to figure out how to attach a photo on here so everyone can see my 3+ feet of snow!
