Random Tidbits ~ We have a Winner!
I have to admit, I dreaded the desk cleaning.
Oh the guilt that flooded me for all those lost days of writing. Oh the joys of finding things again.
I found 3 long lost, large eye needles and a needle threader I had been looking for. They were all in the bottom of a can used for pencils in my desk.
I also found love notes from my husband. The love notes have already been put in the album I made for our special times together. So funny. Glad I kept them too.
I got paper out and tried every single pen (to see if it worked) in my desk. If it worked it found a home, if not, the trash. I sorted colored pencils, and those are where the kids can access them now, along with highlighters, pencils and markers. I may put the colored pencil in the camper "fun" box. I have zentangle, a deck of cards, pad of paper, pen, and word search books in it now.
My 17 year-old and I deposited a large car load of items to the "donation" door, and we have picked up paint chips. Things are moving along.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
And my husband thanks you all for entering and taking these lovely items into your home (and out of mine, ha ha!). Since my 17 year-old took so much joy and laughter to this event, she was the one to draw the name.
The winner of the blog giveaway is: Kim at Fiber and Flea Village.
Please email me ( I emailed you via your blog info), or post a message with your contact info, so I can ship you this box of goodies. Thank you all for entering too.
