I want to thank all of you for being such Busy Bees.
Almost all the aprons are done and on their way. I have heard from most of you and know that there are a couple of unavoidable delays but the aprons are headed toward their destinations. So if you haven't got it yet, watch for your postman and let me and your partner know when you get them. :o)
I have two more thank you gifts to send out to you swappers. Every swapper gets a chance at these but you can up your chances by posting.
Giveaway number one is....
It is a luscious body lotion in the fragrance of Exotic Passion fruit from Mary Kay. Our friendly Mary Kay dealer is miss Ana L.'s mom. You can visit her Mary Kay site and check out other fabulous products and if you buy from her you are helping along another stay-at-home mom. Rebecca has a marvelous blog, Marvelous Pigs in Satin, where she posts crazy stories about her children and some pretty wicked NON-diet recipes for days when you just need some comfort food. (she also manages to stay pretty skinny too.)
The other prize I have for you is from one of our fellow swappers, and my BFF, Vea M.
We are getting this lovely quilted coaster set from Vea. It is so lovely and so well made.
You can see more of her creations at her newly opened Etsy Store Prairie Village. Vea is also a Stay-at-Home mom that has fabulous sewing, painting, quilting, designing and cooking skills. She has also recently stared up a new blog called...
.... where she posts great money saving tips and recipes. She has raised 8 children for very little money and is sharing her fabulous secrets which we can all use right now. Go check out her new blog and her Etsy shop and leave some great blog love her way. She is off this weekend helping her daughter and daughter-in-law man (or woman) a booth at the Norman Oklahoma Renaissance Festival. Them make gorgeous corset costumes. They can make you drop 2 dress sizes with a really good cinch of the strings. (I know I tried it!)
